Fan Power: Jericho Un-Cancelled
After receiving tons of mail, e-mail, phone calls, and about 40,000 pounds of peanuts, CBS has decided to pick up Jericho for a seven episode second season.
"CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler posed posted a letter on CBS’s Jericho web site announcing the show will return in midseason. Her plea: "Please stop sending us nuts." The network will rebroadcast the first season this summer and release it on DVD in late September.
"You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard," Ms. Tassler stated. "But, for there to be more Jericho, we will need more viewers … we will count on you to rally around the show, to recruit new viewers with the same grass-roots energy, intensity and volume you have displayed in recent weeks."
The short second season will be aired straight through without repeats.
