Jericho Rocks

"Why am I telling you this? Beause Jericho rocks. The cast, the sets, the drama, the action – everything about it is 100% fantastic. And if my math is right, you’ve got 18 days to catch up and see what you’ve been missing. Season One is now available on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment and it’s a great package. Rent it, buy it, borrow it from a friend – do whatever you have to do, but watch it. If you get started now, you should finish in time. (Actually, you might finish in a weekend.) Most importantly, tune in on February 12 and make CBS realize they did the right thing by giving Jericho a second chance at life. It deserves nothing less.

Are you a “Jericho” fan? Talk about it in the E-Gear forums."

"Just one week from today, the seeds of a revolution will be launched.

Buoyed by the success of the NUTS to CBS Jericho campaign in which fans sent 40,000 pounds of nuts to CBS headquarters in New York and Los Angeles and got an abbreviated seven-episode second season of their beloved show, fans of The 4400 settled upon another edible with a long shelf life: sunflower seeds.

The group has a web site, MySpace page, LiveJournal blog, online petition and more."

Jericho: On Sci-Fi

"CBS will know sooner rather than later whether or not they will allow "Jericho" to keep on living past its second season, but fans may get a little help from a new rebroadcasting deal the post-apocalyptic series has made with the SciFi Channel."

Jericho is a gripping science fiction series that SCI FI Channel is excited to add to our schedule,” said Thomas Vitale, Senior Vice President of Programming and Original Movies. “Thanks to the passion and persistence of its loyal viewers who saved this program from being canceled, new viewers can now experience this show for the first time on the SCI FI Channel while CBS continues the story in its second season run starting this February."

Breaking News: CBS

"To celebrate the return of Jericho, we’ll soon give you the opportunity to enter for your chance to win a trip for two to WonderCon 2008 in San Francisco to meet the cast of Jericho!"

Stay tuned! Thanks CBS!!

Nuts And Seeds

"Jericho fans saved that show by mailing tons of nuts to CBS, and now fans of The 4400 want you to try something similar to save that show.

They've set up, where you can sign a petition to save the show and also buy a 1.75 oz bag of sunflower seeds from Then you send them (of course) to Bonnie Hammer at USA Network headquarters in New York City. I'm sure she'll be happy to get them (cough)."

Be sure to read the full article.

"The daytime soap operas might be losing their bubbles in the weeks ahead as networks resort to episodes not penned by striking writers.

The Writers Guild of America, which has been on strike since November 5, has picketed for several days in front of ABC headquarters in New York, primarily to protest its airing of "All My Children" episodes written by non-union members. ABC is the only network to produce all of its soap operas, while "Days of Our Lives" on NBC is produced by Corday Prods. and all of the CBS soaps are produced outside the network, including two by Procter & Gamble and one by Sony."

CBS: Promoting Jericho

"Some of the best news since the announcement that there was to be a second season of Jericho, is the fact that CBS is really promoting the second season of Jericho. We all know that this has a lot to do with the fact there is very little content on TV due to the strike, and that CBS is trying to really play the fan card. However I am very happy to report that while watching the AFC Divisional Games and AFC Championship Game on CBS there was plenty of promotion for the upcoming second season of Jericho. Hopefully the promotion brings in great numbers for the start of Season 2 of Jericho"

"We spend a lot of time watching TV shows. A few our TiVo catches and the rest I stream from the laptop to the Xbox 360. We just don’t have the time to spend watching tv when the networks want us to so we hardly ever watch live tv. I recently got Season 1 of Jericho. I had heard of Jericho but had never watched it and didn’t know much about it. After reading that a few people I follow were excited for season 2 and reading more about the show it grabbed my attention. So, we had to get season one. We are about half way through the season and I gotta say its an awesome show. I’m lovin’ the characters, the plot, the mystery and the sub-plots. We hope to finish season one in time for season two. Another show that I have never watched but just got the first season of is ‘Dexter’. We plan to start watching it after we finish Jericho."

Happy Birthday Skeet

"With favorite scripted shows like “Desperate Housewives,” “The Office” and “CSI” now out of fresh episodes, the strike-torn network television season is starting to look like the National Football League around 1987, when “replacement players” took over the league for three weeks during a walkout by the real players.

CBS has nothing like an abundance of new episodes, but of all the networks it has the strongest corps of repeatable shows, like “CSI,” “NCIS” and “Two and a Half Men.” The network has one established comedy, “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” and one new one, “Welcome to the Captain,” ready to come off the bench. And it has the return of the nuclear-nightmare series “Jericho,” which will have a complete arc of seven episodes.

CBS also will offer the complete season of the serial-killer series “Dexter,” which ran earlier this season on its sister cable network, Showtime."
