CBS Gives ‘Jericho’ the Heave-ho
By Julieanne Smolinski
“Jericho,” the CBS fan favorite that once escaped cancellation after a massive fan campaign, will not get a second reprieve.
The network announced today that the March 25 episode would be the series’ finale.
A CBS representative said the network has no immediate plans to shop “Jericho” to cable. Sci Fi Channel has been airing the first season.
The rep also quashed the rumor that there are additional episodes in the can beyond the seven ordered last summer, saying only that there were two endings shot for the final episode of season two. The one designed to be more specifically conclusive will be aired.
CBS renewed the show in June after angry fans mailed tons of nuts to the studio (a reference to the season-one finale).http://www.tvweek.com/news/2008/03/cbs_gives_jericho_the_heaveho.php
