14 years ago today, the TV series “24” premiered on Fox, with the buzzy format of each 24-episode season covering 24 hours in the life of Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland.

The show premiered less than two months after the September 11 attacks, making Bauer’s efforts to protect America from terrorism plots that much more resonant with viewers.

“24” lasted for eight seasons, earning several Emmy Awards along the way, including one for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Last year, it was revived for a 12-episode limited series.

Other notable November 6 happenings in pop culture history:

• 1965: The Rolling Stones’ “Get Off Of My Cloud” took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was their second No. 1 hit — “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” had topped the chart earlier that year.

• 1967: Bob Dylan recorded “All Along the Watchtower” in Nashville, Tenn.

• 1981: “Time Bandits” opened in U.S. theaters.

• 1993: “I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the first number-one single for Meat Loaf. In the U.K., it was the best-selling single of 1993.

• 2001: Britney Spears’ self-titled third studio album, featuring the songs “I’m a Slave 4 U” and “Overprotected,” was released.

• 2001: “Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed In at the House Of Mouse” was released on DVD. It was the first direct-to-video animated film spin-off from Disney Channel’s “House of Mouse.”

• 2009: “A Christmas Carol,” directed by Robert Zemeckis and featuring the voice of Jim Carrey, opened in U.S. theaters.
