"24" Picks its Female President

"24" Picks its Female President

Jack Bauer's world on "24" has its new leader: President Allison Taylor. Fox confirmed at the TCA press tour on Sunday that the show has, indeed, elected a female president to take office when Day 7 begins in January. Stage veteran Cherry Jones, a Tony winner who has also appeared in movies including Ocean's Twelve, will play the new commander in chief.

Another interesting "24" tidbit from Fox's executive session: Network entertainment chairman Peter Liguori said he wouldn't call the past season of "24" a disappointment, despite its critical fall from grace. He said that while the show might feel disorganized at times, that's because it's "a living beast," and the audience enjoys being a part of that. He added:

I feel like part of the high-wire act is their process. There is a specific energy that goes into creating a season of "24." It's a little bit like war strategy, I guess. ... You have a big strategy, the first bullet goes off, the war strategy goes out the window.

So, "24" fans, what do you think? Is it comforting or disconcerting to know the producers are, to some extent, making it up as they go along?
