FILE - In this Monday, Sept. 24, 2007 file photo, actor Kiefer Sutherland arrives at the Fox Fall Eco-Casino party in Los Angeles. Fox, facing the ebbing ratings power of "American Idol," is betting big on its first miniseries showcase, starting with a limited-edition "24," and shows from heavyweight producers Seth MacFarlane and J.J. Abrams to invigorate its schedule. The "24" miniseries will clock in at half its running length, and the 12 episodes will be chronological but will skip some hours, Kevin Reilly, Fox Entertainment chairman, said Monday, May 13, 2013. It likely will kick off the event franchise in May. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles, File)
Monday on TV: Can Jack save the world again on '24'?

Well, we got the big twist last week on 24: Live Another Day (8 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13) - just as we expected, given the formula the show continues to follow.

The twist was less expected. After Jack tossed the season's first Big Bad Villain out a window to her death, we learned there's another Big Bad Villain. And he managed to order a U.S. Navy sub to torpedo a Chinese aircraft carrier.
