I'm gonna go ahead and give the exact opposite opinion here. 7 was delayed due to the writer's strike and wound up airing a year later which gave the writer's more time to recover from the season 6 disaster. It also allowed them to take what 24/Jack had become and flip it for some differing viewpoints (for instance, one of the new characters introduced is a young FBI agent who is very by the book, over the course of the year you see her struggle with seeing the legalities/effectiveness of Jack's methods)

Season 8 has a pretty great final run of episodes, but the first 16 or so feel like 24 on major autopilot. It's almost a checklist of recurring story points they felt they had to hit (one character has an interesting story, but mostly its pretty by the numbers)

Also here's how I'd rank the season's just for the heck of it
5, 1, 3, 2, 7, 4, ...8, ........................6
