Attend 'Touch' finale party in Raleigh and win free Android phone

This Thursday night after the Season 1 finale of Keifer Sutherland's "Touch" on Fox, a new related web series from she show's creator Tim Kring ("Heroes") will debut online.

"Daybreak," a collaboration between Kring and AT&T, will consist of five 10-minute online films, each "exploring different facets of a complex character journey." (Hint: The mysterious "dodecahedron" object introduced in a recent "Touch" episode, will appear again in the show's finale and then become a "central character" in "Daybreak.")

Here in Raleigh, AT&T is sponsoring a viewing party of the "Touch" finale and the web series premiere at Tobacco Road Sports Cafe. Fans of this blog and the Tech Junkie Blog are exclusively invited to attend.

What to Watch on Thursday: New NBC comedies, 'Touch' begins on Fox

Community (8pm, NBC) - Jeff is debilitated by his narcissism, which skyrockets when his confidence is boosted by anti-anxiety drugs and regular visits to a shrink. Also, the gang try to help Abed pay of his debt from a celebrity-impersonator habit. Also tonight, two new episodes of "30 Rock" (the 9:30 ep has Weird Al Yankovich) and a new "Up All Night" featuring Henry Winkler as Ava's dad.

Missing (8pm, ABC) - In the second episode of Ashley Judd's "special gift to America" (her own description of this series from a "Live with Kelly" interview), Becca makes a deal with the head of French Intelligence while searching for her missing son. Believe it or not, I'm still not a fan of this show even after Judd called me a "brat" on Twitter. 

Touch (9pm, Fox) - Fox previewed this episode of the new Keifer Sutherland (left) drama back in January, but it starts for real tonight. Possibly the same episode from the preview but record it anyway, just in case.

Project Runway All Stars (9pm, Lifetime) - A winner is picked in the season finale, and Tommy Hilfiger appears as a guest judge.

Awake (10pm, NBC) - A purported suicide during a high-end yacht party leads Michael to an encounter with Rex's ex-babysitter, Kate. In his other realm, Michael happens upon Kate again, but this time she appears as a suspect.

Archer (10pm, FX) - In the conclusion of the Season 3 finale, Archer and his ISIS colleagues travel to the final frontier to prevent a catastrophe aboard the International Space Station.

Rumored cancelation of "24" is confirmed

The word has been on the street for a couple of weeks now, but confirmation came last night: "24" is canceled.

The current season will be the show's last, and it ends May 24.

The show's star, Keifer Sutherland, told Variety: “For us, creatively, it seemed like the right time to do it. It’s very bittersweet. ‘24’ was the greatest learning experience of my career so far. And on a personal level, working with this cast and crew and writers, these will be friends of mine for the rest of my life.”

Canceled: Looks like time is up for "24"

There has been no official announcement from Fox, but numerous sources are reporting that the network is canceling "24" after the end of this season.

Ratings for the Keifer Sutherland-driven show have been dropping while production costs have risen. Plus, critics have pretty widely panned the current season's story lines. There are also reports that Fox is shopping the franchise to other networks, but honestly, who wants to pay big bucks for a dying, eight-year-old show. There are plans, however, for a film version of "24."

Do you think it's time for "24" to go away for good?

Is this really still the same day?

First Jack finds out his friend Tony is alive.

Then he finds out he's evil.

Then he finds out that he's just playing evil to do good.
