Another Jericho lifeline?

At the risk of causing a full-on riot, Jericho may not be dead after all.

The New York Times dug into the recently announced deal between DirecTV and NBC that saved Friday Night Lights, and discovered that this new tactic of partnering with cable providers may not be a one-time thing.

According to the paper, a pair of anonymous sources says CBS has had talks with Comcast about "finding new life for Jericho."

Presumably, those talks amount to negotiating a similar deal that kept Friday Night Lights from being canceled. Lights will return for a 13-episode season and will premiere on DirecTV in October, four months before it is re-aired on NBC in February after the Super Bowl.

Jericho, which follows a postapocalyptic Kansas town trying to survive after a nuclear attack on American soil, was canceled after its first season. Fans rallied, and CBS reversed its decision to axe it. However, after disappointing ratings, the show was once again canceled last month just before the shortened second season concluded.

Is the third time a charm? Does the show deserve another chance? Can it be saved by Comcast? Comment below...

I am a late bloomer for this show. I just discovered it on YouTube around the 27th or 28th of December (2008). On January 2 (2009) I bought both season 1&2 on DVD and watched it all in 3 days!. This show is awsome! I still wish and hope for a 3rd season. Great shows are really rare these days.

Yes there should be a third season to me this show has alot of action on my list and is right next to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Jericho is one of the best shows I haved seen in a long time and it hurts to find out that we would never know the end.

Just false hopes.

Season two of Jericho starts in Australia soon on pay TV, although I have already seen all the episode. If you fall in love with a show in Australia you just have to hope and pray that the large companies don't axe it before we get to have our say and become a fan of a show.

if you're going to cancel a show, at least put a decent ending... don't leave us hanging, trying to figure out what happened next... really... it's irritating making the viewers feels like they've just wasted their time with you guys... :)

Jericho is one of the better shows on TV. It beats the moronic junk that is being put forward like Swingtown. Just the previews were enough to keep me from watching that. I prefer Jericho, The Unit. Keep Jericho, don't cancel it.

Of course Jericho deserves another chance! What? Is CBS skeered that maybe the storyline is just a little too close to the truth????? BRING IT BACK!!!

Yes please bring it back, only show besides startgate that I even take the time to watch live. All other shows I catch the re-runs. Awesome show, I love it! I want to see how the government responds to their man walking away...

I really hope there is another life line to this great show, i would pay to watch it. Since its not making money, im sure all the other fans of the show would as well if we all gave a dollar to the cause, do you think they would give it more consideration? Is numb3rs and ghostwhisper really better than this show? Seriously....I'll pay to get this show back

I have MS so I wasn't always able to tune in at the regular time, I would go on-line to catch up on the EPISODES that I missed. Jericho is one of the only shows on Broadcast TV worth watching and I was very disappointed that CBS would consider canceling it. Jericho is an on going Storyline that has endless possibilities, where as the Crime Story ends the same way every week, Case Solved, BORING!

I became a huge fan of Jericho and I'm not a "techie". I'm a mother of two children and had to go and watch online because I was too busy to watch it on TV sometimes! Give me a break on the whole rating thing....

Asking Comcast for help means they're completely screwed. Has anyone ever been helped by Comcast? No, seriously. Anyone?

I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying that Jericho may return once more.

Looking forward to the third season of a great show.

Jericho is one of the best TV shows that has been put on air in a long time. The stories are great and I seriously hope they can find a way to bring about at least one more season to - at the very least - bring such a great plot and intriguing story lines to a close. It is my hope that it will last even longer than 3 seasons but please do such a great show justice and bring it back.

I only started watching this show. While living in the US, I actually never watched it, seemed like a bit boring show, not really knowing what the show was about. Came back home to Norway Ocotober last year, and beginning this year, the show was announced to come to Hallmark Channel. Thought I would try to see from episode 1 what the show was about.

Well, enough said, I was hooked. I can't wait until the next episodes comes out, time doesn't fly fast enough... it's an AWESOME show. Proabably the best show I've ever seen. The show HAS to continue!!!!!

I Haven't missed a single episode and if CBS is smart they'll bring it back .however do something like the show Lost does so people who haven't been watching will know what is going on.

I was very disappointed with the season#1 final but the episodes of season#2 were totally awesome. Made me very sad that it stopped were all the action would have started on a larger scale.

I hope the show finds the support it needs to make another season.

Damnit, not again.... I love this show. I almost wish they had just left it with the first season. This new cliff hanger is just too painful to just end on. They set it up for one awesome 3rd season.... if they would just do it! one thing I have always wonderd about is what a 2nd civil war would be like. And now there is a chance to see a show about that... damnit all to hell. I hate cbs

This is possibly one of the best dramas ever to come out of the US. I cannot believe this will be dumped. Whoever uses Neilsen ratings these days? So many people watch online, download episodes......... I'd feel very cheated indeed if this series did not continue. It has a massive fanbase here in the UK.

Go Jericho... in this series when less money is spent on an episode, the better it turns out... hope the writers/producers understand this ;)

Bring Jericho back but I no longer am sure want it on CBS, NBC, ABC, or FOX. I just don't think broadcast networks seem to care about quality programming like this anymore.

Save Jericho! It is a terrific show. We all wonder in the back of our minds what would the world be like if ...God-forbid, something like this were to happen for real. I think the writers/actors did a super job of bringing to life a drama that tells us something about our country and the people who live here.

Keep Jericho alive! Season 3 We want to know what happens next... Will the Republic Texas with Jake and Robert Hawkins prevail in their struggle against tyranny? We want to continue to have the opportunity to travel to that place and be with those people and live that struggle with them!

I hope that Jericho comes back. I think that the finale was a cop out and a weak way to end the series. My wife and I have never missed a single episode. It's a great show and I think that this is the kind of show that people need to sit down and watch. It stirs up emotions and can open up real discussion about "what if". I hope that someone does the right thing and brings it back. If there is room in this country for mind numbing crap like "Flavor of Love 3" then surely we are entitled to intelligent viewing like Jericho.

Bring Jericho Back.........It deserves another chance. I didn't start watching until right before the second season aired. I was able to watch the entire first season online at cbs.com until some of the episodes simply didn't work then I got creative and watch the episodes that didn't play on cbs.com on aol.com. I was able to finish right before season 2. Bring it back it's a original show like no other on television.

TPTB really NEED 2 keep Jericho on the air, if CBS is 2 daft 2 realize the real deal that they have, then let Sci-Fi (or some1 else) take over. CBS, this is THE ONLY show U have that I watch...U cancel this, I'm gone w/it! The reality shows SUX!! NBC has Heroes, ABC has Lost & y'all have Jericho!! Get a clue!!!

Please dont let this great show die. I will watch every episode and I promise to even watch the commercials!

Finally finished season 2, and I do hope new life is found for this series. TV is in desperate need of some fresh new drama. I am personally getting sick of all the rehashed crap out there, and never ending reality series. I have stopped watching almost all TV, except for some stargate and CSI. Even 'Lost' has lost my attention...
