Jericho, Nielsen's, and Schizophrenics
Digg-A-Thon was a big success so we will be digging every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday until further notice.
Thank you to all who participated.
I have had a number of requests for a newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter is:
1. To try to get people interested in Jericho
2. To cover any news about Jericho whether it be a newspaper article, blog, or website.
3. To deliver the content of my 3 blogs in brief
4. To deliver any news about anyone's "mission" to help Jericho whether it's a project that needs help-Digg-A-Thon- or places we're needed to go vote.
5. This newsletter will not repeat or rehash anything on the boards. If there's something on a board that you would like to see in a newsletter then I will add it at your request only.
Finally, please bear with me. I have a subscribe box on all 3 blogs so you can subscribe if you like. One of them looks Nuts but it won't exactly fit.
I have set this, for now, to be a monthly newsletter until I get comfortable with it but I might do a test one over the weekend.
Check out this article and read the comments. You don't want to miss it.
The writer replied back to me:
"I hadn't heard about all the preemptions of the Jericho reruns, since it seems to undermine both the chance for potential new viewers to get caught up on the series and their desire to train people to watch it at a particular time, since it isn't even coming on consistently at that time in the first place. I'll have to confess that I haven't watched Jericho because of my fear that I would get into good shows, only to have networks cancel on me. Refer back to this comment I made last November:
If people aren't willing to devote themselves to a series while it's on the air because they are afraid the cancel-happy networks are just going to pull the rug out from under them, does this mean that the need for a new model is developing for these types of shows? It seems that this current system, where networks want to push shows that are more involved and have a longer shelf-life, is contradicting with the older form of throwing on self-contained shows at the beginning of a season and quickly canceling many of the series."
