Day 2: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Return: Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is back to fight another day as the acclaimed series opens its second season with a commercial-free episode.
The format is the same---each hour is a separate episode---but the day now starts at 8 A.M. It's been a year since Jack lost his wife, and the emotional toll includes estrangement from his daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert), who is now a live-in au pair for a troubled family. Jack is no longer with CTU, and no longer interested in that line of work---until he's summoned directly by President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). The situation: terrorists have planted a nuclear device somewhere in Los Angeles and plan to detonate it within 24 hours.
