Kiefer Sutherland is confident that 24's Jack Bauer would "respect" his new Designated Survivor character.
ABC's new series, premiering Wednesday, centers on Sutherland's eponymous "designated survivor" Tom Kirkman, who is sworn in as president – despite never having served as an elected official – after an explosion kills nearly the entire U.S. government.
So what does the 24 agent think of Sutherland's portrayal of POTUS?

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

Alhough Freddie Prinze Jr. progressed from teen hits like She's All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer in the 1990s to a role in the TV thriller 24 in 2010, apparently he couldn't leave the high school-style drama behind.
According to Prinze, working with Kiefer Sutherland on the popular show nearly led him to quit acting altogether.

Yvonne Strahovski appears in two shows Monday night. Isn't that wonderful? It is if you happen to be a Strahovski enthusiast, as I am.
It may even be more wonderful if you don't know her yet, and take the opportunity to watch FOX's 24: Live Another Day, premiering at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and the second of two back-to-back episodes of FX's Louie, which begins a new season at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
I first became intrigued by this Australian actress during season 7 of Showtime's Dexter, starring Michael C. Hall. She played serial killer Dexter Morgan's soul mate, Hannah McKay. Hannah also had a string of murders to her credit, but she killed with rational premeditation, not for kinky satisfaction.

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!
Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.

The clock is ticking down ... to a new baby.
24 star Annie Wersching and her actor/comedian husband Stephen Full are expecting their first child, they tell PEOPLE exclusively. The couple is “ecstatic,” says Wersching, who plays Renee Walker opposite Kiefer Sutherland on the show.
"Feeling great" during her pregnancy, Wersching, 32, notes that she's "craving mint chocolate chip ice cream!”
The couple married at their Los Angeles home in September 2009.

Kiefer Sutherland says making sure 24 could proceed without a hitch was his top priority when he served seven weeks in jail last winter following convictions for DUI and violating probation – which he called a "dumb mistake."
Sutherland served 48 days behind bars in Glendale, Calif. during the writers' strike.
"It made what I had to do – obviously a very stupid thing that I did – it made that easier because I could go and the show was not affected by it," Sutherland, 42, said Monday during the Television Critics Association conference in Beverly Hills.
