Jericho, Palms rescheduled

Now that Jericho has been saved and renewed for seven more episodes, it's time for the fans to do their part and get others to start watching the postapocalyptic drama. CBS has announced that it will rebroadcast a portion of the show's first season on Fridays at 9 p.m., beginning with the pilot on July 6.

On July 13th, fans will get a double-dip of the show, with "Return to Jericho"--a recap of the drama's first 11 episodes--airing at 8 p.m., and episode number 12, "The Day Before," following at 9 p.m. The episodes will then air consecutively every Friday night throughout the summer. CBS did not mention plans to re-air episodes two through 11 in their entirety.

While Jericho's run is being extended, it looks as though Hidden Palms is being cut short. The CW has shuffled its schedule to bring the season finale of the chiseled drama forward a few weeks to July 4 instead of its original date of July 18. In order to accelerate the first season of Hidden Palms, June 20 and June 27 will now see back-to-back new episodes.

Repeat showings of Hidden Palms that were airing on Sunday will now be replaced with reruns of 7th Heaven. The CW did not comment on the fate of the show, but airing a finale on a national holiday does not bode well for the young series.

The show made up my mind to visit the real Palm Springs.So at least it is intriguing. Some pics I found on www.weknowwhatyouneed.com, the website of Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism, are actually quite the style protrayed in the TV.Can't wait to go there!

Jericho is one of my favorite shows. I hope that more people will watch it so that it can stay on.

I have never watched Hidden Palms but I agree with alot of the other viewer comments that each network should give the shows a chance before cancelling them.

CW needs to give shows more of a chance, I will think twice before ever watching anything else the CW produces - you can't get attached to their shows because they will almost always axe them at the end of (or before) their first season. Hidden Palms was so creative in their characters and plot. It was refreshing to see some quality television (even if it was only for 6 weeks).

I am very glad that Jericho is returning... I just wish that the same effort had been made for Veronica Mars, Studio 6o (which has amazing writing) and the long gone Invasion

this is just awful that the CW will be axing another show. Just like in recent times with everything. With Drive, then they scared us with Jericho. Basically all the good shows that I get into are being cut. Hidden Palms Is a good show, and I'm heartbroken (again) to find that a decent show that I found interesting, gets axed (like everything else). Can they for once keep good decent shows like Hidden Palms and Jericho on the air. I'd love to keep watching them, they just don't give it a chance. So what if the target audience is teens, atleast it's not as bad as the OC (don't get me started, it was doomed from season -1(negative one)). Unfortunatly with Drive, it got axed due to ratings, but American Idol seems to be more important *rolls eyes*. Naturally all networks need to step up to the plate a bit more in order to get recognition and more ratings, if you cut shows before it begins, then whats the point of putting it on in the first place. Placing shows in prime time is excellent way to attract new watchers, but if you keep comparing it against all the other networks and whats on at the same time, then logically your not going to succed I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong, but was Drive a good show or not? I got into it, then funily enough got axed only on the 4th ep. oh well - End of ranting, sorry if I sound like a fool, but yeah - stop axing the good shows!. nuf Said, Chaos.

I'm glad Jericho is coming back. It's a great show. I'm enjoying Hidden Palms but I knew it was a goner since only 8 episodes have been taped. Another show that will leave the audience hanging. What a shame!

Hidden Palms goes the way of early 90s star studded bomb - Wild Palms; ironically set in the year 2007. Summer shows with PALM in the title are jinxed. Not that naming it something else like Miami Nice would have helped it.



Jericho is coming back with 7 episodes. That pretty much where things stood in Fall 2006 and the result was a full season order of 22 episodes. While Im not expecting another 15 episodes of Jericho this season, another 9 would be fine.

Why is CBS doing this 'part of the season' nonsense? Show the whole thing, airing it twice a week. ABC pulled this same garbage with the first season of Desperate Housewives, a show I didn't decide to watch until summer. I was left so frustrated by sudden gaps in the plot I almost didn't keep watching.

Am i the only one that likes Hidden Palms? I thought the first three episodes was superb! I mean it is a bit different from your normal prime time shows.. but hey.. it had a good story line and the good part is.. WE DON"T Have to wait sooooo long to see a loose end be tied up... Hmmm.. really hope that Hidden Palms gets to go on longer......... :(

You know what could have saved Hidden Palms as a show? If in the second episodes the world got nuked and it turned into an every man for himself town, city-state adventure.

KickAss on Jericho! We sooo appreciate CBS listening to us. We will do our part.

Hey CBS, will you also get some Jericho merchandise in your store so we can buy that in addition to the DVD in September 25th?

hidden palms is much better than gossip girls looks i'll tell you that much! sad that it wont have a second season...looks like now that the oc is done (although i essentially stopped caring about that show after season 3 ended), i'll only have prison break and one tree hill to watch...only oth doesnt return until january and prison break probably has 2 seasons left in it tops....i'll probably give gossip girls a chance but from the trailer it looks a lot like gilmore girls (yuck!)

i guess, the hidden palms, is going to be very well hid.... goodbye stupid show. This is the future of cw's fall schedule. All new show will probably be cancelled, and then they'll air smallville, supernatural and the reality shows.... then when this is done, there will be noone left to watch cw, so..... Goodbye Veronica Mars...

I am so excited about Jericho, so everyone let your friends know to watch it so it can be renewed for more than 7 episodes. I was just now thinking Hidden Palms had a real chance at making it. CW is nothing like WB was. CW does not give shows a chance when WB cared about new youthful shows. Hidden Palms story line happens to be different, just a little deeper and darker. Believe it or not there are life situations similar to this story line and some people enjoy this show. As open as people are to horror movies I am surprised that so many people do not like this show considering this is more of a dark secretive show. I personally think the cast are working it. I like the fact that this show does not hide their head in the sand about stuff that is happening in real life.

I've seen three episodes of Hidden Palms and it's not very well-written, not to mention the young actors have no chemistry whatsoever. At times the writing comes off as something you would hear on a daytime soap opera. The CW wants to speed the episodes up so they can put something else in that time slot.

The CW is doing nothing right. Are they sure about Hidden Palms? I mean, it's not even a guilty pleasure. You would never want to watch it.
