Another reason to love Fox's 24 & Jack Bauer

jackMonday morning rolls around and we’re all grumbling as we get back to the grind. But I have one good reason to get excited about Mondays… My 9 PM dates with Jack Bauer.

If you’re a 24 fan like me – you’ll be glad to hear that Fox’s Monday night drama – 24 recently went carbon neutral!

Fox’s consultants have taken steps which include:  measuring 24’s carbon-dioxide output, installing motion detectors in bathrooms and kitchens for lighting, distributing electronic scripts, recycling and purchasing wind & solar power! Last week, a commercial aired with Kiefer Sutherland urging viewers to do their part for the climate change campaign (& visit Fox’s website for ideas.) We can look forward to seeing Chloe, Tony & President Taylor make more eco-statements throughout the season.

Executive Producer Howard Gordon pointed out 24 is possibly the worst TV offender of pollution (considering all of the car crashes and special effects) so they wanted to start green initiatives in Hollywood – encouraging other shows to follow suite.

Since 24 is taking admirable eco-conscious steps it’s one show that can be moved out the ‘guilty pleasure’ category!

  1. i love monday night dates with JB! 🙂
    even president taylor gave a green speech last night during a commercial break!

  2. Good to hear LL! The Fox website said that Tony Almeida & Chloe will also be making statements… hopefully that means they’ll both survive the rest of the season! I can’t wait to see next Monday!
