24 has, obviously, been moving farther and farther away from their real time conceit as the seasons have progressed. The events have become less and less fathomable as occuring within the confines of a single day, and the show incorporates fewer elements to convince the audience of said real time conceit. OK, whatever, I can deal. But in all previous seasons, the show has, at the very least, synched up the minutes of the "hour" of each episode with real time minutes, so that each show really was one hour. Not any more!! They've fudged 3 minutes, giving themselves more time for previews and fox news teasers at the end of each episode. Come on people! Most everyone in America has the actual hour and minute staring at them from their cable box, on top of or beneath their tv, as they're watching the 24 countdown clock LIE TO THEM. Is this bothering anyone else out there in tv land?
