Default Has anyone else noticed........

that on some TV shows now when they say a phone number instead of it being "555" they say "597"? They've said it a couple of times on "24" this season and I thought I heard it on some other show or movie recently.

Random question I know but Bandit was complaining about there not being any posting going on this morning

When I lived in IL my phone number started with 597. I hadn't noticed it on tv though.

24 has a fan hotline. Frequently when they say or display a number, you can call it.

CTU is in Los Angeles, but the show doesn't just take place there.

EDIT: CTU = Counter Terrorist Unit btw.
