WIN THIS: It’s a Very Christmas 25-Day Giveaway, Day 6: ’24’ Clue

HOORAY! We have our winner:

Jack! (Is that you Jack BAUER?! I kid …). Seriously, Congrats, Jack, and thanks for entering. Your awesome 24 Clue game will be on its way to your mailbox shortly. Enjoy, and thanks again for checking us out at TV!

And everyone, keep checking our Christmas giveaway section … we’ve got lots more TV goodies coming your way!

It’s an inside job! What better way to wile away the last couple of months until 24‘s eighth season premieres (Don’t let it start! Don’t let it start!) than playing Jack Bauer yourself, with the CLUE: 24 edition board game?

The plot: The U.S. is about to be hit by a major attack, and it’s going to originate from inside the CTU office in Los Angeles. Your mission, as board game Jack: Ferret out who your traitorous colleague is from amongst the six agents locked down inside CTU. Jack, the Director of Field Ops, is locked outside, and must communicate with the agents locked inside, via his PDA (that magic Jack PDA!).

Green, Plum, Colonel Mustard and the other suspects in the original Clue game are replaced with Audrey Raines, Bill Buchanan, Chloe O’Brian, Mike Doyle, Nadia Yassir and Tony Almeida in the 24 version, and players have to figure out which one is the mole, what kind of attack is being planned (represented by nine pewter tokens, including an airport tower, a CTU badge, a bus, a power plant, a Wall Street sign and a satellite) and from where in CTU it will originate.

And, thanks to our friends at USAopoly, who also make The Office and Seinfeld Clue games, as well as Seinfeld Monopoly (which we’ll be giving you a chance to win in December!), has a copy of the 24 Clue game to give away!

And to enter for a chance to win the 24 Clue game, remember:
– Leave a comment on this post, with your name, your favorite 24 season (for me, it’s tough to choose between seasons four and five) and an e-mail address where we can reach you

Good luck, 24 fans, and stay tuned for the rest of our It’s a Very Christmas 25-Day Giveaway!

’24’: A First Look at Season 8!

Will the upcoming eighth season of 24, which premieres on Fox on Jan. 17, be the series’ last? I’m going to choose to be in denial about that for now …

But does have a first bit of footage from the new season, and it finds a retired (whut?!) Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) trying to spend some quality time with his granddaughter, only to be dragged back into another CTU/gotta-save-the-world-again emergency. Yes, every time he thinks he’s out, they keep pulling him back …

There are lots of familiar faces in the clip – Renee/Girl Jack (Annie Wersching)! President Taylor (Emmy winner Cherry Jones)! Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub)! Kim Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert)! – as well as some new faces, like a man (played by The Shield‘s great Benito Martinez) desperately seeking Jack’s help, Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s new CTU operative Cole Ortiz, Mykelti Williamson as new CTU honcho Brian Hastings and some doofus who dares to ask the question, “Who the hell is Jack Bauer?” Oh, he’ll soon find out. Oh yes … he will soon find out.

One other cast standout: The kid playing Jack’s granddaughter, who you may recognize from what is one of the most annoying TV commercials ever: The Van De Kamp’s fish commercial in which the tot rudely chastizes her mother for feeding her minced fish. Let’s hope she’s far less annoying on 24, because grandpa or not, Jack Bauer simply won’t put up with that kind of sass!

PS – There’s another sneak peek at the new season available at YouTube, a shaky, poor quality clip someone filmed at San Diego Comic Con last summer. Again, the quality is bad (and much of it is flipped 90 degrees, making it a dizzying viewing experience), but it does provide more of a look at the new CTU offices, as well as a small preview of Dana Walsh, the new CTU character played by Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff.

How excited are you for the new season of 24? And do you think/hope/dread that it will be the show’s final season?

Channel Surfing – July 2

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

Neil Patrick Harris hosting the Emmys … that should definitely happen.

– Let no angle in the Michael Jackson story go uncovered: Anderson Cooper got the scoop on Bubbles the chimp last night on CNN.

– Speaking of celeb deaths, the sad trend continues for TV stars. Streets of San Francisco star (and Oscar winner) Karl Malden got all the press yesterday, but Broadway, big screen and tube star Harve Presnell – he was Dawson’s cantankerous friend/mentor Mr. Brooks on Dawson’s Creekdied on Tuesday at age 75.

– Bravo’s premiering a second season of The Rachel Zoe Project on Aug. 25.

Christian Slater‘s My Own Worst Enemy flopped, but the Heathers star may be headed back to the tube in ABC’s fall drama The Forgotten. Slater would play a cop-turned-private detective whose daughter was kidnapped.

Coyote Ugly star Piper Perabo (a fellow Ohio University alum – Go Bobcats!) has signed on to star in the USA drama pilot Covert Affairs, which sounds an awful lot like Alias. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller will be on the other side of the law – playing an NYPD officer – on the season premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Sept. 23, NBC).

Lost star Michael Emerson predicts a sad ending for the show, with (more) major character deaths and what he describes as a “series finale for grown-ups.”

Kiefer Sutherland confirms that 24 will shoot some season eight scenes at the real United Nations. Jack Bauer’s next really long day will unfold in New York City (Jan. 17, 2010).

– This certainly trumps the Flintstone vitamin in TV-related pharmacology: Homer Simpson ecstasy.

Billy Mays‘ infomercials will continue to air, and Discovery Channel has planned a tribute to the late pitchmen for July 9. Meanwhile, the New York Times has a rundown of five memorable moments from last night’s Pitchmen season (series?) finale.

– There’s official So You Think You Can Dance confirmation that Katie Holmes will be tapping her toes – for a new dance education charity she co-founded – on the show’s 100th episode, July 23.

And tonight in primetime:

William Shatner stops by G4’s Attack of the Show (7PM ET) to chat about his new Tek War comic
– A military couple who has spent a lot of time apart is shipped home and given a dream wedding on TNT’s Wedding Day (8PM)
– ABC has back-to-back new eps of the sadly canceled Samantha Who? (8PM)
Kelly Clarkson sings “I Do Not Hook Up” as the top 14 becomes the top 12 on So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 9PM)
– A teen who wants to join the Air Force may have her dreams dashed when she becomes preggers on the latest ep of 16 & Pregnant on MTV (10PM)
– Shea becomes a full-on bridezilla on Southern Belles: Louisville on SoapNet (10PM)
– TV Land has a new installment of She’s Got the Look (10PM)
– Science Channel’s Science of the Movies examines 3-D animation (10PM)
