Jericho Ends

After a complete season 1 and 7 episodes for it’s second season, CBS finally pulled the plug for Jericho. And this time, it’s for good.

The show has developed a lot of fans (including me), but sad to say, it wasn’t enough for the show to remain. It actually lost about 2.5 million viewers since it’s first glimpse of closure after the first season.

The upcoming Episode 7 is said to be the season finale, which (as sources say) is shot with two endings, but the selected ending won’t necessarily preclude the series from coming back to the airwaves. Either ways, I have to watch it.

For those who are new, “Jericho” is an American serial drama produced by CBS, with executive producers Jon Turteltaub, Stephen Chbosky and Carol Barbee.

The story revolves around one small town in Kansas (Jericho), having to deal with the aftermath of nuclear attacks on 23 major cities in the contiguous United States. And a whole lot of conspiracies.

I was suppose to watch the last episode of season 1, hoping to catch up with the movie, but just like that, and I only have 7 more episodes to watch. What a way to catch up. Tsk3x.

I guess we all didn’t expect the biggest explosion in Jericho would come from CBS itself.

3 Critical:

  1. No More Green –  they have been one of the heroic families in Jericho, but I guess this time, there’s really nothing they can do.
  2. Even Good Movies – this just goes to show that even good movies with remarkable “first seasons” can collapse.
  3. T.V. vs. Movie – the difference between the two is probably the change of status the  actors have. In movies, there’s a specific ending and beginning. In T.V., the endings could change even without the actors knowing it. And they could loose their jobs in an instant.

It was confirmed on Friday evening (3/21), on Shaun o’Mac’s radio broadcast, that the show’s production company will be trying to find another home for Jericho. Most likely they will be looking at cable networks.
