Don't put up the headstone yet: New York Times says CBS is in talks to find help funding cult drama.
Apr 08, 2008
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 ...

Network searches for way to close up cliffhanger ending; fans demand renewal by sending CBS...nuts. Lots of nuts.

CBS offers Jericho compromise, fans throw nuts

One of the oldest tricks in the book of television production is the cliffhanger ending--a certain "OMG" moment designed to entice the viewer to come back for more. In particular, the technique is used in season finales, allowing fans to spend the summer theorizing over what will happen next.

Unfortunately, some shows end their seasons on cliffhangers when they fail to get picked up by the network. The result is a lot of angry fans who have invested time in the show, only to see the last chapter of their books ripped out right when they were getting into it.

Such was the case with the CBS drama Jericho, which was officially canceled last week. However, CBS will try to give at least some reprieve to viewers and offer some sort of insight into what would have happened in the next season.

On the official Jericho message boards, CBS Entertainment ...

Under the pressure of pleas from fans and lots of nuts, CBS orders seven-episode renewal of cult favorite; DVD due in September.

CBS caves, Jericho lives

Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, and Arrested Development fans take note. The people have rallied, and a television network actually took notice.

A day after it was rumored that a deal was in the works to bring Jericho back from cancellation, CBS today confirmed that the show will return for at least seven more episodes.

On the official Jericho message boards, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler began a lengthy post with one word--"Wow!" Impressed with the outcry from fans of the show, Tassler announced that Jericho will return midseason next year.

The post reads, "Over the past few weeks, you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a primetime television series. You got our attention; your e-mails and collective voice have been heard."

The initial order is only for seven episodes, but CBS is hoping that the show's fans can rally more ...

Jericho fans refuse to give up

If people fought for causes the way Jericho fans have fought for their favorite show, there would be world peace, no climate crisis, and smiles on the faces of children everywhere.

Well, that may be a stretch, but those who love Jericho are a devout bunch. They organized the feel-good story of 2007, plotting a save-the-show campaign that actually worked. Upon truckload after truckload of nuts delivered to CBS, the network lifted its cancellation order and brought the show back for a seven-episode second season.

Unfortunately, viewers still didn't tune in the way CBS hoped, and the show was once again put to rest.

But a little thing like that isn't going to keep Jericho fans down. They still believe there is plenty more Jericho left to be shown, even if it isn't on CBS. So what have ...

Jericho not dead after all?

If TVGuide.com's Michael Ausiello is correct, it appears that CBS executives may be listening to the pleas of its viewers.

The gossip hound says that "multiple sources" have indicated that CBS is very close to green-lighting a deal to bring the Skeet Ulrich vehicle back to the airwaves. The agreement would allegedly bring the show back for eight episodes, possibly as soon as midseason.

When CBS left Jericho off its 2007-2008 schedule, fans of the show went ballistic. Online petitions were signed, message boards were flooded, and CBS execs' e-mail boxes were bloated with pleas to renew the show.

But the most creative ploy saw fans sending nuts to the corporate offices in defiance. The idea was spawned from the show, when Ulrich's character replied "Nuts!" to a neighboring city offering the postapocalyptic town a surrender. The phrase was borrowed from US general Anthony C. McAuliffe, who ...

CBS reportedly considering drama as replacement for failed new show; Jericho could be on within weeks.

Jericho could see air soon

While much of the talk this season has been about season premieres for returning shows and series premieres for brand-new fare, one returning show is still waiting for its break. CBS's Jericho, still giddy from its well-publicized last-minute reprieve from cancellation, is waiting in the wings for its seven-episode second season.

CBS had originally planned to have the sophomore season of the cult favorite air during the midseason, which would mean an early 2008 premiere.

However, fans may see the fruits of their nut-tastic "Save Jericho" campaign pay off even earlier. Jericho is being eyed by the network as a possible replacement should one of CBS's new shows fail and be canceled, according to TVWeek.com.

Jericho's shortened season--one of the caveats CBS had in bringing the show back for a second run--has already wrapped ...

Top 10 Shows That Were Canceled Too Soon

What's the deal with network executives, anyway? Can they simply not handle awesome television? Why must they tease us with one or two seasons of quality programming, then cancel good shows in favor of idiotic reality replacements? Is that really the way the world works now?
