The writers’ strike has put Jack Bauer on the sidelines.

Fox is postponing the seventh season of “24” (scheduled to debut Jan. 13) so the series can air uninterrupted in its entirety. The series will finish shooting through episode 8 before shutting down production later this month. It will likely be rescheduled when this season’s episodes can be seen in consecutive weeks.

To fill the void, Fox has scheduled the premiere of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” for Jan. 13 and 14. “Prison Break,” which was scheduled to go off the air in December and return in April, will now break following the Nov. 12 episode and resume Jan. 14.
