SiFi Wire picks up on a rumor that Jericho will be renewed by CBS and will likely move nights so as not to go up against Idol ...

Awesome! Jericho is the only show I MUST watch ASAP. I could have CSI or Close To Home or just about another show on my DVR for a week or more, but Jericho gets watched the moment I get home from work. One thing I appreciate CBS doing is not messing around. New episode just about every, no three or four week hiatus’ other then the planned break, which was fine. If only other networks could do this. Every episode answers 2 or 3 questions, but asks 5 or 6 more, I love it!

Agreed about Jericho! Love this show almost as much as the BBC fare that we've been watching!

After the way they ended the season finale all I can say is they better renew this show!!! I believe the networks are announcing their fall schedules this week so we should know before too long.

:( Jericho was a great show, like I said above, it's the only one I had to watch right away. While the ratings weren’t good (not bad either) I thought (and hopped) CBS would get it the green lights. I'm not surprised about Close To Home. Last year is was really good, a lot of the cases were really hard hitting emotional ones, this year is was mediocre at best. I can’t believe The Unit gets a third season and Jericho doesn’t even get past the first. Out of the 8 new shows I watched this year, Shark is the only one that made it. No word on Criminal Minds I see, that better be staying.

Despite cliffhanger ending, show won't be back

By Rick Porter

May 16, 2007

CBS would like you to know that it was a tough decision to cancel "Jericho," its entry into last season's plot-driven serial glut.

That will probably be small consolation to the show's fans, who watched the show's first -- and only -- season end with the titular town's fate very much up in the air. But, as CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler put it Wednesday, "It just wasn't performing."

Sci-Fi wire have stated that CBS have said due to e-mails from fans the may try and rap up Jericho in the coming weeks.

In a statement on the official show bulletin board, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler told fans:

"We truly appreciate the commitment you made to the series, and we are humbled by your disappointment. In the coming weeks, we hope to develop a way to provide closure to the compelling drama that was the Jericho story."

Awesome! I'd be grateful for anything, but I'm hoping it's on TV, not online. But even so, I'd be grateful, no matter what.

You won't de disappointed, other then the fact that currently the show is cancelled. I will be purchasing Jericho on iTunes and on DVD. I'd love to watch the entire season again.

NUTS. Michael Ausiello at TVGUIDE.COM reports that multiple sources confirm that JERICHO will return ( at least 8 episodes) at midseason. Contracts are being signed and soundstages are being secured. CBS does something right for once, but I still wont forgive them for booting NOW & AGAIN

Slight clarification, but I was just looking at the article and it says all that's left is for terms to be negotiated and contracts to be signed, along with finding a new soundstage...

But I'm all for it! :)

Arrrrgh.... why are they going to bring this show back and make me watch.... :)

This was one show I had a love/hate relationship with. The acting and writing were so bad, yet I couldn't turn away....it had just enough of a hook.

Fans Make CBS Reconsider 'Jericho' Axing

Jun 5, 11:08 PM (ET)

By LYNN ELBER

LOS ANGELES (AP) - 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.
