Jericho: Germany, Australia, and Canada

Greetings to all Jericho Fans in Germany

I received this note from a German fan (Ryo) today:

"It's very important for us to see the series on TV. Unlike in the states, there is no DVD release scheduled in Germany."

They need the DVD over there too! Look at his website and click on the flag for English.

Also, Greetings to all Jericho fans in Australia.

Here's an article from over there:

"Viewers left in the dark"

It says, in part,

"It begs the question, what would it take for network executives to peek out from behind their ratings charts and stop counting their advertising dollars and check out what us viewers have to say?
Surely it shouldn't take a pile of nuts to effect some change . . .
So we here at AdelaideNow are handing the power over to you: if you were in charge of any one given network what programming peeve would you like to see changed?"

I'll ask the same question now. What programming peeve would you like to see changed?
Just leave a comment.

Greetings to fans of Jericho in Canada:

I asked a Canadian fan today what Canadians want when it comes to Jericho. He said, "We want to be counted." This, he said, means by Innertube or Nielsen."

His reasoning is sound. He says, "Montreal is about 45 min from the N.Y. border and we all watch American networks. I watch Jericho on W.C.A.X- Vermont and we see an ad that says.."If you have missed any CBS show, go to and watch "...(innertube) When I try, A message pops up and says sorry, It's for U.S. viewers only!!!!! This just ticks me right off!!!"

It would make me mad too because like he adds, "So many Canadian dollars are spent in places such as Plattsburg N.Y. or Burlington VT. There are buses that leave here just to take you shopping in these cities. When it comes to T.V. sorry you don't count!!!! It's not like I am on the other side of the world!!!"

Come on, CBS. They can watch on American TV, buy the products you advertise, and can't be counted or use Innertube. Where do you see "CBS Cares" in that?

Jericho is loved around the world. Imagine having the hardships to see it that our fellow fans do.

I love that this show translates so well around the world. But I hate that the spectre of money and ratings is similar as well. I used to live within an hour of the Canadian border, and there was a lot of crossing it from both sides. I do wish we could do more for our neighbors to the north. We used to make fun of them (like you do), but they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

Another well done post! Keep on keeping on.

Thanks for commenting. I love all Jericho fans and I wish we could help them all. I don't think they're asking for too much.
Canada spends their dollars on CBS advertised products so they should be counted.

This is one of the things that I love about Jericho. People everywhere around the world can relate to Jericho. It's not just a show for Americans, or for the young "target" demographics. It goes beyond race, sex, age, financial status, education, and nationality and reaches to what is the same in all of us...we are all just people. We all love and hate and laugh and cry. It is truly rare to find anything in life that can speak to every one of us, let alone in television. Thank you for reminding us that there is a whole world of Jericho fans out there who are not so different from us after all.

Thanks for commenting. It really is amazing that people all over the world love Jericho. There are fans in places I never thought of: Latvia,Sri Lanka, Romania, and so many more.
You're right-we're all just people. We all love Jericho.
