24 ‘s Clock May Keep Ticking on NBC?

ON

Entertainment Weekly reports that 20th Century Fox has approached NBC about picking up “24” should Fox opt to cancel it — and the NBC is considering it.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that 20th Century Fox and the Fox network are nearing a mutual decision to end the serial thriller after eight seasons due to declining ratings and rising costs.

If the series does continue, that would probably push the planned movie back.
