Jericho Fans Give CBS Hell ... Show May Return

1 comments
I received an email from a listener last week praising my show, but telling me they would be unable to listen anymore. The reason ... they were protesting CBS for canceling the TV show "Jericho." Well, it turns out CBS may bring the show back after fans caused quite a stir.

CNN:

Fans trumpeting the cause of CBS' canceled drama "Jericho" have caught the network's ear.

CBS, deluged with calls, messages and shipments of nuts signifying viewer displeasure, is reconsidering its decision, a source close to the production said Tuesday.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly. A decision on whether to bring the show back, probably for a midseason run, is imminent, the source said.

"We are tired of the networks (not just CBS) tossing aside quality programming," was the message carried by jericholives.com, one of several Web sites protesting the cancellation. "Enough! We're going to fight for this one."

Clarke Ingram, a "Jericho" fan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a spokesman for jericholives, said he was optimistic that CBS would find a way to revive the drama about a Kansas town isolated by a nuclear terrorist attack.

The network apparently has been impressed by the display of viewer passion, which included the delivery of 50,000 pounds of peanuts to its New York offices.

Good job fighting for what you want. I've had plenty of shows canceled on me without an ending, and I was just really getting into Jericho when it got canceled.
