24 Days of “24”: Will I Go Jack Bauer on “TV Guide”?
Normally, I’m very happy when my “TV Guide” comes in my mailbox. But tonight when I started flipping through it, I just got angry…
No surprise, “Lost” is on the cover—even though the finale will air before this issue’s listings begin. There’s a six-page feature on Team Darlton’s favorite moments. Okay, fair enough.
So what coverage does the finale of “24” get, which is actually airing during the listings week? One page. A “Keck’s Exclusives” feature that already ran on TVGuideMagazine.com. No spotlight in the Monday highlights. Not even a picture.
Is that how a magazine about TV should pay tribute to a show that changed TV as we know it? Need I remind everyone again that there would be no “Lost” without “24”?
I know I promised all of you more of the biggest moments in “24” history tonight, but because I’ve had a long night and I’m a little angry, I don’t think I would do them justice. So I hope you’ll all forgive me if I postpone posting them.
Tomorrow, 24 Days of “24” is scheduled to continue with comments from Mary Lynn Rajskub’s conference call…
