HDTV Listings for January 15, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: There's really only one show for me tonight, but that's likely due to my watching seasons 1 through 4 of "24" on DVD over the past three months. Jack is back on a two-hour premiere of "24" tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox. The 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. hours air in 720p and according to the commercials that I just couldn't avoid, "everything will change in the first 10 minutes." I hope what doesn't change is the intensity and action that explodes off of the high-def set. Any guesses as to what tomorrow night's pick will be? We'll give you a hint: the next two episodes of "24" are on their regularly scheduled night of Monday.

Don't miss the live "24" chat over at TV Squad; tune in your chat client at 7:00 p.m. EST by finding the chat room info here.
