Retro Friday: The original “24” and “Lost” premiere promos

As we prepare to say farewell to game changing dramas “24” and “Lost,” here’s a look back to how they were originally launched.

Above, Fox’s promo for the Nov. 6, 2001 bow for “24” — which, unfortunately, uses Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” (because of the line “it’s just one of those days”).

“They survived the worst… OR DID THEY?” One of the debut promos for “Lost” in 2004.
