Each episode is supposed to take one hour of real time but in actuality, due to commercial breaks three minutes are gradually added to the timer during the show in the breaks. The last three minutes of air time are used for viewing commercials, station identification, and scenes from the next episode. Each episode general runs for around 43 minutes without commercials (slightly less in PAL territories). See more »

For some of the narrated introductions, Kiefer Sutherland adds "My name is Jack Bauer and (today/this) the longest day of my life." See more »
This show definitely has re-written the book on intelligent and credible suspense on TV. Extremely well acted, written and directed. Truly gripping, heart-stopping suspense from one hour to the next. The show is so well done that you can easily forgive the very few plot devices that seem a little weak. When a show gets 99% of everything right, it's very hard to quibble. Keifer Sutherland has never been better as the flawed hero. "24" deserves to be a model on which all future TV suspense thrillers can be compared to. A+++
