LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Four days ago 85 people gathered in front of a giant TV under a tent in Hollywood to watch episodes of the show “24”.

Kevin Coon was among 85 who initially gathered four days ago to sit on comfy couches in front of a giant TV inside a tent to watch 8 seasons worth of episodes from the show “24”.
