Jericho fans sent 50,000 lbs of nuts to CBS in an effort to get them to bring back the show… and they won. CBS will add new episodes of Jericho into their line-up this fall as a mid-season replacement.
In the meantime, they’ve asked fans to get more people to watch the show…
“You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler wrote, and seven episodes have been ordered for midseason 2007-08. “In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more ‘Jericho,’ we will need more viewers.”
…and so the Consumerist has been asked to ask you to watch Jericho.
CBS will be running the show on Fridays this summer, starting with the pilot on July 6. They donated the nuts to charity. —MEGHANN MARCO
