After this disappointing season of "24" — and especially that drawn-out, unnecessarily frustrating finale — I knew the show would have to make some drastic changes to get viewers back. And it seems like the show's producers know it: Several tidbits of news have been flying around recently about big shifts in the show's structure and characters.
The biggest news is that the show is contemplating its first female president, which — in addition to mirroring part of this country's actual presidential race — would be a fantastic role for some underemployed female actress. I'd love to know which of them are readying their resumes at the mere mention of this possibility. (Geena Davis had that presidential thing down, but personally, I'd love to see Allison Janney leading the nation.)
Among the other changes:
- The show will likely focus less on the goings-on at CTU and move to a new city, with New York, London, and Washington, D.C. reportedly on the short list.
- Of all of the characters, only Jack and Chloe are locks to return at this point; everything else is up in the air.
If you've drifted away from "24," do you think these changes would draw you back in?
