Talk-show tango Jan. 11-15: Kiefer Sutherland’s 24 vs. Ricky Gervais and the Golden Globes

In television on 01/11/2010 at 8:52 am

The clock is ticking on two fronts: the countdown is on for the start of 24, which kicks off Jack Bauer’s eighth long day in New York City on Sunday, Jan. 17. The other countdown is for the Golden Globes, which also airs Sunday night. The promo effort for 24 is pretty solid, with couch dates this week for Kiefer Sutherland, Elisha Cuthbert, Mary Lynn Rajskub and newcomer Freddie Prinze Jr. The Globes have put host Ricky Gervais to work, plus lots of promo time for hot nominated films, like Crazy Heart’s Jeff Bridges and The Blind Side/The Proposal’s Sandra Bullock, Invictus’s Morgan Freeman etc.
