"Jericho" Cancelled Again

4th\SW Quadrant The Approval Matrix: Week of April 7, 2008


Well, at least they had a dream, and it came true for a season: CBS (NYSE: CBS) has canceled the post-apocalyptic drama "Jericho", the second time this has happened in two years. The first time it got canceled due to low TV ratings, the passionate fans led a protest online and forced CBS to bring it back. It has been a popular show on CBS.com and iTunes.

But on TV, the second season's Nielsen ratings were even lower than the first...the March 25th will be the last show. According to CBS: "Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program; we simply wish there were more...We have no regrets bringing the show back for a second try."

According to THR, this does not mean the show couldn't come back on cable, but the high cost of the production, however, will likely prevent a continuation of the show.

Ibrahim,

The Jericho fans stil have a dream - to find Jericho a new home! We are working hard and they are listening to us. If you or anyone reading this would like to help make that dream a reality, please check out our initiatives posted here: www.Jerichonet2.com.

Fans from other shows are helping. We need to Stand United to be heard. Find Jericho a New Home - We made History once and we can do it again.

Thank you.

Jericho is a show worth fighting for, and the fans are doing just that. I'll second N2N2's recommendation of Jerichonet2.com as a place to find more information on how fans can
help Jericho find a new home.
