This from Fox today:
As the clock ticks toward the climactic final two hours of 24’s Season Six on Monday, May 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), FOX has extended the Emmy Award-winning series for two additional seasons through 2008-2009.
24 was last year’s most Emmy Award-winning television series with five Emmys, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kiefer Sutherland) and Outstanding Drama Series. The show promises to combine its unique and trend-setting format with compelling new elements. Each episode will cover one hour of real time, and the season’s entire story will take place in one terrifying day. Viewers again will follow Jack Bauer through a day that none of them will ever forget.
With this season disappointing many fans, there have been reports of a shakeup at the show, which I suppose explains the reference to "compelling new elements."
A little later I expect to have some comments on last night's "Veronica Mars" and "Gilmore Girls," as well as the "Idol" performances.
