The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

Despite mediocre ratings, Fox renewed Touch for a second season. Will the TV series' luck hold out long enough for it to be renewed for a third season -- or will it be cancelled instead? We'll have to wait, watch the ratings, and see.

Below are the TV show's ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Touch is going to be cancelled or renewed for a third season.

This morning Fox Broadcasting Company officially ordered 24: Live Another Day that will extend the heroic deeds of agent Jack Bauer into another action-packed day. The miniseres event will premiere in May, 2014 and run through the summer.
Kiefer Sutherland has already inked a deal to return as Jack Bauer. Joining and reteaming with Sutherland is the original series showrunner Howard Gordon. Additional casting announcements will not be made until a later date.
Previous season of 24 were 24-episodes in length with each designed to take up one hour of a 24-hour period. 24: Live Another Day will also span a 24-hour period, however the episode order is for 12, half of what it used to be. In theory each episode would cover approximately two hours within a day.
Sutherland had been campaigning for 24 to return as a movie for several years but the project could never seem to get off the ground. »
Less than a day after it was announced that the second series of Kiefer Sutherland’s ‘Touch’ was to be the last because Fox had axed the show, former 24 executive producer David Fury spoke on twitter about his next project and in doing so confirmed the rumour that 24 was returning as a limited series. In reply to a follower he also revealed that the intention is for the series to consist of twelve episodes.
As this article was being drafted, it’s actually now been confirmed that Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer will return for 24: Live Another Day, a ninth series of the show that will air next summer.
It has been three years this month since season eight aired its final episode. So with the promise of a new look, shorter series nine on the horizon, here are the ten best moments from the previous eight seasons.

Fox taketh away Kiefer Sutherland yelling, Fox giveth Kiefer Sutherland yelling slightly more urgently: Not long after announcing that it was ending Touch after a low-rated second season, the network offered consolation to both Sutherland and fans of seeing Sutherland get upset by confirming a new, limited-run return of 24. The 12-episode series, which boasts the very meta title 24: Live Another Day, will bring back Jack Bauer to stop yet another terrorist threat over the course of 24 hours—this time skipping all the “in-between hours” where Jack Bauer pauses to just sort of dick around on the Internet »
Fox Entertainment announces thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer will be renamed 24: Live Another Day
Kiefer Sutherland is to return in a new series of real-time thriller 24 – but in a 12-episode format in which the less interesting hours will be left out.
The new series, called 24: Live Another Day, was announced on Monday, three years after the Fox drama was axed after eight seasons, a total of 192 episodes between 2001 and 2010.
Following the exploits of counter-terrorism unit agent Jack Bauer, played by Sutherland, the drama was widely thought to have run out of steam by the end of its final season.
Plans for a 24 spin-off movie have been axed, and the new series comes after Sutherland's other Fox drama, Touch, was cancelled after two seasons.
But fans may be left wondering whether a 12-part 24 – the unique premise of the original series was that each hour in Bauer's life »

Jack Bauer is about to get a fresh batch of time to run out of. Kiefer Sutherland will reprise his role as the ass-kicking, torture-happy counterterrorism agent on a new 12-episode limited series re-launch of 24 next May, Fox announced today, ahead of its "upfront" presentation to advertisers, according to the Hollywood Reporter . The announcement comes just days after the network canceled Sutherland's most recent drama, Touch . It'll be called 24: Live Another Day , and will be produced by former showrunner Howard Gordon. Yeah, we think they should have called it 12 , too. The show will be the debut offering »

"24" is officially returning to Fox after Kiefer Sutherland signed on for the rebooted project, Deadline was the first to report Monday.
Sutherland is set to reprise his starring role as CIA superagent Jack Bauer, which he played for eight seasons from 2001-2010. Fox just canceled Sutherland's drama "Touch," which ran for two seasons, making way for a "24" return.
EW reported Friday that Fox was eying a 13-episode season for the new "24" season.
"They always had this idea of someday doing a feature film. I think they all agreed that '24' compressed into two hours is not '24.' ... What they'll be able to do is go in chronological order of the day, »

True to form, the deal to revive “24″ as a limited series next summer came together with real-time urgency during the past three weeks.
Imagine principal Brian Grazer credits longtime showrunner Howard Gordon for driving the final talks that led to Monday’s announcement that Jack Bauer would be back in action for 12 episodes skedded to bow in summer 2014. Ever the enterprising producer, Grazer sees the smallscreen revival as laying the groundwork for a “24″ feature down the road.
In fact, a movie rendition of Fox’s innovative drama series had kicked around for years, even since the show bowed out in May 2010. Grazer was closing in on a deal 20th Century Fox a little more than »

Just days after Fox canceled Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch, the actor is returning to Fox to reprise his role as Jack Bauer in a 24 limited series. The continuation of the series -- which spanned 192 episodes and a TV movie from 2001-10 -- will be produced by its former showrunner, Howard Gordon (Homeland). Like the original series, the reboot, dubbed 24: Live Another Day, hails from 20th Television and Imagine TV's Brian Grazer with Gordon's banner Teakwood Lane on board to co-produce. Fox will bow the limited project -- which will tell a 24-hour story over 12 episodes that

While fans of 24 had been forced to resign themselves to the fact that they would almost certainly never see Jack Bauer's story concluded on the big screen, Deadline has now confirmed that Kiefer Sutherland has signed up to return as Jack Bauer in the recently announced limited series. The recent and unfortunate cancellation of Touch has obviously ended up being very good news for fans of the drama which aired between 2001 - 2010! An official announcement is expected to be made later today at Fox's upfront presentation, while Brian Grazer has already been confirmed as returning as executive producer. Be sure to stay tuned to Cbm for further updates! Update: It has now been revealed that 24: Live Another Day (that's the official title) will air in May 2014 for 12 episodes. Fox chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters today on a conference call that plans for a movie have been »
Jack Bauer is back! I’ve learned that, after marathon negotiations, Kiefer Sutherland has closed a deal for a new installment of 24 on Fox. With him on board, I hear Fox has greenlighted the real-time drama as a limited series and will announce it during its upfront presentation today. The continuation is a brain child of longtime 24 showrunner Howard Gordon, now executive producer of Showtime’s Homeland. His 20th Century Fox TV-based Teakwood Lane will co-produce the new 24 alongside original series producers Imagine TV and 20th TV, with Imagine’s Brian Grazer returning as executive producer. This will mark Fox’s second event series under the network’s push into that arena, joining the just-greenlighted M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines starring Matt Dillon.

Just when you think you’re out, they pull you right back in. That must be what former 24 star Kiefer Sutherland is thinking now that Fox is toying around with the idea of resurrecting the now 3-years dead series. 24 came to an end in 2010 after eight seasons of fighting terrorists and watching that clock tick tick tick away. But someone was clearly reluctant to let the series go quietly into the night – a film was planned to continue the story, but that idea never quite made it off the ground – and is actively trying to make 24 be the cool series to talk about once again.
Deadline reported former 24 showrunner Howard Gordon went to producers 20th Century Fox TV and studio-based Imagine TV about bringing the series back as a limited series, starting fresh with a new storyline and everything so it seems like the last 24less years weren »

Having been in development since 2006, it seems pretty safe to assume that the proposed 24 movie is never going to manage to drag itself out of development hell, but that might not necessarily mean we've seen the last of CTU. According to Deadline, Fox is looking to revive the real-time drama for a new limited series headed up by 24 showrunner Howard Gordon (Homeland), who is said to have pitched a concept to Fox and Imagine TV "which would start from scratch with a new story arc."
While that description screams "reboot", fans of the show will be relieved to hear that Kiefer Sutherland is in negotiations with Fox about reprising the role of terrorist killing machine Jack Bauer. While no deal is yet in place, Sutherland has plenty of room in his schedule, with Fox announcing just yesterday that it's decided to pull the plug on his current show Touch after two seasons, »

Fast National ratings for Friday, May 10, 2013
Though it had already been given the ax by Fox, Kiefer Sutherland's "Touch" managed to see a slight uptick in ratings for its Season 2 (and series) finale. The show saw 2.5 million total viewers, up slightly from last week's 2.2. While the minor rise won't do the show any favors at this point, it could help Sutherland's cause with the strange new rumor that Fox is seeking to revive "24" as a limited-run series.
Over at CBS, freshman drama "Vegas" also closed up shop for good. Ending its first and only season, the Dennis Quaid-led series saw a slight decline in total viewers with 7.1 million, compared to last week's 7.26. The show's performance also reinforces just how strong CBS is as a network, compared to its competition. A show with the same numbers on NBC would likely run for seven years.
CBS, per usual, won the »
There were finales and there were finales on Friday. Some shows, like CBS’ Blue Bloods (1.1/4) and Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares (1.1/4) ended their season while others ended altogether when the network hammers dropped this week. After a cycle in which it consistently took in the most viewers for its night and had solid ratings, the renewed police family drama ended its third season last night as the most watched show of the night with 9.90 million viewers, but third among Adults 18-49 for its 10 Pm time slot. Blue Bloods was down 15% from last week’s show and down the same percentage from the 1.3/4 that its season 2 finale received on May 11, 2012. Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares saw Gordon Ramsay in Arizona as the unscripted series wrapped up its sixth season on Friday. The series was even with its May 3 show and dipped 8% from its fifth season ender on March 30, 2012. Kiefer Sutherland may be returning »

With Kiefer Sutherland and Fox plotting the return of Jack Bauer, we’re hearing some additional details about the plan.
You already figured this out, but now we can say with certainty: Touch isn’t coming back for a third season. The mystical drama was shifted to Friday nights this season where it struggled in the ratings. Even without a 24 revival, it was considered pretty much dead in the water.
For 24 miniseries/limited series, we’re hearing Fox is actually currently looking at a 13-episode order for the show. For a cable series, that’s actually a full season (heck, »

Fox may be looking to bring back "24," Deadline reports.
Kiefer Sutherland is in talks to reprise his iconic role as Jack Bauer, eight years after Fox's mega-hit CIA thriller went off the air, according to Deadline. Former "24" showrunner and current "Homeland" boss Howard Gordon is reportedly on-board with the project, which Fox is eyeing for a limited run.
The news comes just after Fox cancelled Sutherland's drama series "Touch."
Several people affiliated with "24" tweeted about the news. "Happy Endings" star Elisha Cuthbert, who played Jack Bauer's daughter Kim on "24," tweeted a link to Deadline's story and "24" executive producer David Fury took it a step further, confirming his involvement in the project.

Back in March director Antoine Fuqua declared that the 24 movie was dead but it looks like Jack Bauer still might live to see and fight for another day. Or at least for most of a day. There was some rumors earlier today that Fox was looking to bring back 24 for a limited run but EW has now confirmed that the rumors are indeed true. Part of the reason why the 24 movie was killed was due to Kiefer Sutherland being busy with his show Touch. Well it appears Touch won't be coming back »

Despite Antoine Fuqua's best efforts to get it off the ground, the “24” film was finally caught in a development cougar trap last month, with the director admitting “it's not happening.” A matter of star Kiefer Sutherland's schedule and paycheck were cited as reasons, but as the actor's alternative Fox show “Touch” now comes to a cancelled end, it seems the series may be revived at its original platform after all. Deadline reports the drama may return to Fox as a limited series, with “24” showrunner Howard Gordon -- now exec-producer on “Homeland” -- leading the charge. He reportedly pitched a new story arc with Sutherland's Jack Bauer character to the show's producers, and former executive producer David Fury has also tweeted his involvement, saying “Yep, I'm pulling double duty along w/ [FX series] “Tyrant.” No deals have yet been set, but Sutherland is naturally in talks to reprise his iconic role, »
