If true, this is another bad decision by the people who brought you Perky Katie for the See B.S. News.

At least ABC found room in its lineup for a show based on the Geico caveman.

Any chance Jericho could end up on "The CW"?

CBS had to make room for 2 vampire shows - one a musical.

Let's start an online petition to bring back Jericho! These petitions have worked before!!

I know I won't be tuning in to a vampire musical


I wonder if I should waste my time by watching the season finale? (still on my DVR and haven't watched it yet)

You don't want to miss the finale.

Whats really a bummer is that CBS pretty much ruined this show itself with long breaks between episodes and not enough in between...

I signed, jim, but I think we know it will do no good unless we can get about a million of 'em (3,600 so far).

One of life's unanswered questions: what was Hawkins going to do to the train with the tank not having any shells?

Id assume, stick the tank on the tracks, in hopes that it will derail the train?

Id love if this info was fake, and it didnt get canceled, but meh! Atleast we can hope the DVD's will have the full story on what everything was, and not just nothing!

My feedback to CBS -

My family, as well as myself, are very disappointed with your network decision to cancel Jericho, after a cliffhanger finale. Why, may I ask, did you air non-cliffhanger finales of CSI, CSI: Miami, Ghost Whisperer, Close To Home, etc.; productions that are RETURNING next season, but, for a production that is not returning, you air a cliffhanger. Please consider at least airing a two-hour Jericho movie on your network in the upcoming months, to at least provide a resolution for the many fans of the series. If not, I'm afraid you'll find many viewers tuning to competitors. Of course, my email will not be considered even for a second by your network, and will most likely be read by an office assistant. Your network will keep hopelessly targeting that prime "18-49" demographic, and, in the end, it will be your demise.

This show should move to Sci-Fi.

I was hoping it would get picked up, I like the show and I know people who work on it.

That said, that petition can get 5 million signatures, but the cast options won't have been picked up with the show canceled and they will have moved on to other projects.

Let's hope for some resolution in a TV movie/miniseries down the road.


My only minor complaint about JERICHO was the fact that they were so NOT in Kansas (not anymore...no OZ puns, please!)

I've been thru Kansas many times. Never saw any landscape that looked like those on the show (where exactly are those foothills in Kansas anyway). But I've seen 'em in California.

Ditto. Other than The Price is Right, Jericho is the only regularly airing show I've watched on CBS in years.

Well, the Unit provides a glimmer of hope....it's hit and miss as well. As of now, that's the only thing I'll bother tuning into CBS for.

CBS will become the new NBC in a few years, after their aging CSIs go off the air...because viewers will be afraid to become interested in new series; they'll be afraid of it being canceled after a season. I can say this for ABC: they have a decent track record in at least giving new shows some time.

Well, that about does it for me with CBS. I'll tune in for football and march madness, can't say I'll have my TV on this gaff of a network at any other point during the year.

Hit me up on XBL if you're going to be playing CoD Ghosts or the PS Vita

You know, CBS's decision doesn't make any sense. When it premiered it got great reviews, great ratings, critical claim. It didn't suffer until CBS's stupid decision to take it off the air for MONTHS and then when it came back it went up against IDOL, the most popular show on TV. CBS screwed up, like they usually do.

Well, guess it's official:

That'll teach me to get involved in a serial drama. Back to watching the History Channel.
