Fox Chicago addresses 24 concerns

24If you live in Chicago and you're a Bears fan you have to be looking forward to this Sunday when the Bears play the Panthers in the NFC divisional playoffs. However if you're also a fan of 24 you might be a little panicky. After all, the season premiere of 24 is scheduled to end at 7 PM Central time, exactly when 24 is supposed to start.

The good news is that according to Chicago Tribune blogger Maureen Ryan Fox Chicago has promised to air the show in it's entirety, regardless of when the Bears game ends. That comes straight from a Fox representative. Of course that means VCR and DVR scheduling might be a bit off but, as Ryan says, adding an hour to the back end of the recording time should ensure you catch all of Jack Bauer's exploits.

Boy, I wish I'd seen this post BEFORE I set my VCR, not now, as I'm frantically scanning the Internet to see what happened in the final 10 minutes my VCR cut off...!

It's not a concern for just the folks in Chicago, everyone in the Eastern & Central time zones could be affected, but it's doubtful. The game kicks off at 3:30 Central. Unless it goes into overtime, the odds of THE JACK BAUER POWER HOUR getting off to a late start are pretty slim. (But oh what a lead-in THAT would be!)

I think you mean the game is going to end at 7.
