24 is an American television series starring Kiefer Sutherland as federal agent Jack Bauer, produced for the FOX Network and syndicated worldwide. The show is presented in the semblance of real time, with each 24-episode season covering 24 hours in the life of Bauer.
24: Redemption killed the joke of Peter Griffin's jail sentence in "Tales of a Third Grade Nothing". While Griffin was to be released the following Sunday at 9 PM, a reference to the show's timeslot, the film aired the Sunday of his release, pre-empting Family Guy.
According to Peter in "Friends of Peter G", an Alcoholics Anonymous member mentioned that their addiction ruined either their enjoyment of the show or the show itself.
