Jericho on CBS

Does anyone watch Jericho on CBS?

It usually comes on wendesday nite. It’s about a small town in Kansas. The US is attacked with multiple nuclear bombs, and the show portrays how this small town copes with a rapidly changing world. No Electricity. You have to grow your own food just to eat. Neighboring towns battle each other over the local crops. It’s what I would imagine a small American town in the late 1800’s.

Jericho is a good show, but the ratings haven’t been there. They went on a long break, kinda like LOST, and when they came back with new episodes, they lost millions of viewers, and never really gained them back.

About a month ago, CBS decided to cancel the show. Gave it the axe! That should be the end of the story, right?

Wrong.

Apparently, Jericho has a very strong fan base. These crazy Jericho-Fans rallied the troops and bombarded CBS with complaints and over 50,000lbs of nuts. Over $40,000 worth of nuts. Yes, you heard me right. Jericho fans sent in thousands of pounds of peanuts to CBS headquarters.

The reason why they did this, is because in the show. The main character, played by Skeet Ulrich, says ‘Nuts!’ to a neighboring-city mayor’s demand that they leave their own town. Instead, they are about to have a big fight. A little war over the town of Jericho, Kansas.

The point of all of this was that they were protesting the cancelation of Jericho and they wanted CBS to reverse the decision. After a month of debating inside CBS, they have reversed their decision and Jericho will get 7 more episodes next fall.

I really like this show. I’m glad it’s coming back. It’s a great show. I recommend you watch it while you still can.

    Funny story. It seems the viewers are cleverer than the broadcaster.
