Exclusive Podcast: ‘24’ Showrunner Interview

"24" is back.

Last night main character Jack Bauer's return in the two-hour television movie "24: Redemption" led Fox to a rare Sunday night victory in the ratings, according to Nielsen's Fast Nationals. Showrunner Howard Gordon discusses the program in an exclusive TVWeek.com day-after interview with TelevisionWeek Publisher and Editorial Director Chuck Ross. Mr. Gordontells of the real-life events in Africa that inspired the movie's storyline. He also talks about season 7 of the show, which debuts Jan. 11, and how some of the criticism of last season will be addressed.
