The Associated Press is reporting that CBS is considering bending to popular demand and bringing back Jericho for a mid-season run.
According to the story, a source close to the Jericho production team says that CBS is reconsidering its decision to cancel Jericho, based largely on viewer calls and emails. Apparently the fact the Jericho is popular with young adult viewers, a demographic coveted by networks and their advertisers, is a factor working in the show’s favor.
Disgruntled viewers also delivered 50,000 pounds of peanuts to CBS’s New York office, a reference to the word “nuts,” which was used prominently in the season finale.
Jericho was/is a great show, and I hope CBS does the cool thing and brings it back. This time without the ratings killing hiatus.
