When the clock for Super Bowl LI hits 00:00, another one will begin when “24: Legacy” premieres after the big game Sunday, Feb. 5, on FOX.

FOX Broadcasting Company (FBC) debuted on Oct. 9, 1986, with “The Late Show with Joan Rivers” – a queen of comedy deployed to take on NBC’s king of late night, Johnny Carson. Rivers’ inaugural quartet of iconoclast guests included Cher, David Lee Roth, Elton John and Pee-Wee Herman, and the show was gangbusters.
