FANTASTIC - Jack is back.
After missing a year of 24 due to a writers' strike, we are about to get a new series of the hit show early next year.
So to make up for the absence, and set the scene for the new series, here is a one-off, two-hour edition, shot in real time as usual, of 24.
Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer teams up with Robert Carlyle and heads off to Africa to take a break from the trauma of the last series' events. But things don't go to plan and he ends up going head to head with an African warlord.
Coming To America
Sky Movies Comedy, 8.00pm
ONE of Eddie Murphy's finest comic moments, and a reminder that when he is on form (Trading Places, I Spy, Beverly Hills Cop 1 and 2), he is superb.
He plays Akeem, an African prince who is set to enter an arranged marriage. But wanting a free spirit for a wife, he and his assistant (the equally funny Arsenio Hall) head to New York to find a bride.
Great fun put together by director John Landis.
Live Premier League Football

WIGAN'S Amir Zaki has been the surprise of the Premiership this year, and has been banging goals.
The Egyptian striker's partnership with Emile Heskey has been working well, but they will both have their work cut out against a well-organised Everton defence.
The Merseysiders' front men have also been a menace, with Louis Saha finally coming good, and Yakubu always a danger.
Should be goals galore...
