JON CASSAR was sitting in his director's chair on the Oval Office set of "24" during a typically hectic day for the first-time Emmy director nominee. Cassar was filming the first two hours of the Fox drama's sixth season, and there was an awful lot he has to live up to. The first two hours of "24," which Fox airs in one night, have become a January event for the show's rabid fans.

Fox's "24" is planning to kick off its seventh season not with a car chase or gunfight but with an art show. A photography exhibition featuring images by the cast and crew of the Emmy-winning action series will go on display Nov. 10 at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. The exhibition will feature still photos taken from the South Africa locations of "24: Redemption," a "two-hour event" which airs Nov. 23. Visitors will see 48 large-scale digital photographs taken by "24" star Kiefer Sutherland, director Jon Cassar, producer Michael Klick and others.

ONE would think that since the cover story was about DVD fans of television shows ["TV, Straight Up," Aug. 27], that would have given your editors pause when it comes to revealing key plot points in TV series' DVDs. Yet there it was in the second paragraph in the article about "24's" director, Jon Cassar ["Only '24' Hours in a Day," Aug. 27]: a glaring spoiler giving away a major development from the start of the fifth season of "24." To add insult to stupidity, that season is not even on DVD yet. Hence, The Times cannot claim that it is reasonable to assume everyone but the most casual of the show's viewers were aware of this shocker.

Jack Bauer's long, long days have finally paid off. Fox's "24" picked up three Emmy Awards on Sunday for drama, lead actor Kiefer Sutherland and director Jon Cassar. Sutherland has been nominated every year since the show went on the air late in 2001, but Sunday marked his first win. "Every once in a while, you'll have an evening that just reminds you that you are given too much, and this is that evening," Sutherland said.

It's only 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and Jack Bauer is already strung out. It's going to be another one of those days. Welcome to the third day -- er, season -- of the real-time action drama "24," which sprints to a tantalizing start at 9 tonight on Fox. Three years after the attempt on his life, something seems amiss with President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). He just might be pulling a Jed Bartlet and hiding his true condition.

If history is any indicator, this could be Martin Scorsese's year to finally take home an Oscar. The Directors Guild of America on Saturday named Scorsese best director of 2006 for "The Departed." It is the first win in the category for the iconoclastic filmmaker, who had been nominated seven times before. "I can't believe this," a stunned Scorsese said after accepting the award, a hug from presenter Steven Spielberg and a standing ovation from the audience.

When Kiefer Sutherland and the crew of Fox's "24" traveled to South Africa earlier this year to shoot the two-hour opener to Season 7, they brought cameras and a hobbyist's enthusiasm for capturing anything that wandered into view. The results -- literally thousands of digital photos -- have been culled into an exhibition that will open Monday at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills.

The year's box office champ, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (Disney $35), sets sail today in a special two-disc set with a treasure trove of extras. There's even a documentary on the revamping of the popular Disneyland ride to incorporate characters from the films.

Even counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer would have had trouble with the nuclear explosion of congrats showering "24" star Kiefer Sutherland on Sunday night. The actor, still clutching his winged Emmy victory statue for outstanding actor in a drama, sounded overwhelmed, using words like "humbling," "grateful" and "thankful" when he finally showed up at the Fox party at Spago in Beverly Hills. But everyone at the bash agreed: The Kiefer Kudo Attack was long overdue.

"The Sopranos," "The Simpsons" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" were all hits when released on DVD. So it's hardly surprising studios seem to think that digital-age couch potatoes will watch any TV series, miniseries or small-screen movie that comes out on the booming format.
