If it really had this kind of support, like you claim, it wouldn't be canceled right now. Because those 4 million people who would follow it anywhere love it so much to get all of their friends watching too, right?
Agreed. I like Jericho, but never loved it. I guess people didn't either. Some blame a bad timeslot, but that seems like an excuse. Either it would have gone up against AI and got bad ratings, or 10pm with bad ratings. I suppose they could (should?) have given Jericho the post Survivor timeslot of Thursday at 9pm since CSI did not have new eps
, but would have it really made much difference?
I was at Wondercon '08 and on Sunday, TV day, they had two panels in the exhibition hall in the afternoon. Jericho at 1pm (with an airing of an episode that had not aired yet, and Carol Barbee was there with the people who play Hawkins, Stanley, and Mimi) and Terminator: SCC at 2:30pm.
Guess which one had the overwhelmingly larger crowd? (Note: Terminator did have Summer Glau, while Jericho was supposed to have Ashley Scott (Emily), but she couldn't make it. That might have gotten a few more people.)
