'24' Fans Try to Set Guinness Record for Continuous TV Viewing

Photo Courtesy - 20th Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- One hundred fans of the Kiefer Sutherland series 24 will attempt to watch the drama for 24 consecutive hours -- and several more hours on top of that.  It's the highlight of the "24 Marathon Challenge and Fan Fest Experience" in Los Angeles, which is ongoing.

Since Thursday, the 100 marathoners have been inside a custom home theater where they're watching episodes of 24 -- which ended its run in May after eight seasons -- with the goal of snapping the Guinness World Record for longest consecutive TV viewing, currently 86 hours.  Whichever fan watches the most hours will receive $10,000.

The event also has props from 24 on display.  You can follow what's happening at the fan festival at
