Both shows are awesome. I hope they don't cancel Person of Interests like they have been doing with a lot of good shows the past few years (Chaos, The Good Guys, Flashfoward, etc.). 
 
Both are very skilled but I think I gotta go with Jack. More experienced, more skilled, more durable, more intelligent, more calculating, and never gives up. That said, I think this would be a very good fight and John Reese would loose respectively. The only round I might give it to Reese is in Round 3. He does have a lot of good toys and I don't recall Jack having toys like Reese's. I could be wrong though.

Jack tells him to bite the curb. You know what happens next.

@AweSam:  Reese rips his leg off at the knee-cap?

Jack Bauer will break Reese. Reese may win in the final round however for (in a nutshell) the same reasons stated below.

Same opinion. Same reasons. Good summary. He is definitely more durable and never gives up. In the last season he took a bullet through where his heart should've been (Chloe shot him) as well as I believe a limb or two and kept going.

In the first scenario, just hand to hand w/ some field craft I see John Reese taking this. They where both Delta force but John had the CIA field craft training So I see John winning this one. With just handguns, if it was in a straight up fight, Jack wins this. But in terms of quick drawing John takes this, just barley though. In the final one John takes this one hands down. With the help of the Machine he could know Jacks every move before he even makes it.

Well at peak performance Bauer can:

1. Endure torture for 20 months without saying a word.

2. Take Former American President as a hostage.

3. Recover from drugs in 3 hours.

4. Recovering from gun shot wounds in hours sometimes minutes

5. On several occasions, Bauer has shown to take down entire groups of armed terrorists all by himself (end of season 2, season 6, etc...)

6. Kill the Russian foreign minister in like 15 minutes with 7 guards while injured.

7. Have a sniper aimed at the Russian President.

Bauer stomps in all rounds.

B-Bauer. He gets a gun, he wins.

C-Bauer. Toss up, and i'm a bit biased. So i give it to Bauer.

A: unarmed id give it to john reese

B: Definitely Bauer

C: id give it to Bauer, at the end of season 8 he evaded the whole government despite being the most wanted man in the country and still was able to kill the Russian president (though he go through with the shot)

Bauer takes it H2H without a doubt. Bauer runs up walls and snaps peoples necks hours surviving a plane crash and killing the commandos who shot it down, and after having his heart flatlined (after being tortured with a chemical-laced scalpel). He can snap necks with his legs and has done so on several occasions, including while undergoing heroin withdrawal, and after burned with a hot machete. In his fight with John Quinn, an expert ex-military CQB specialist, he blocked his every move with Krav Maga and stabbed him in the chest with a screwdriver, and this was while he was becoming slowly paralyzed to death and mere hours after he saved the POTUS and the White House. He also judo-chopped a soldier to the ground in a second in Season 7. And let's not even get into how he bit a man's throat out, jumped kicked a suicide bomber out of a moving subway trained, and lead a one-man attack on a terrorist compound, hanging the leader on a chain, hours after being tortured non-stop for 20 MONTHS by the Chinese.

This isn't mentioning the stuff he withstood in Day 8. Bauer's durability, and his propensity to snap necks like twigs, and his vastly more extensive training than Reese, give him a definitive win in all categories.
