Who knew JERICHO had so many dedicated and vocal fans? In the few days since CBS announced their new fall schedule (which didn’t include JERICHO), we at theTVaddict.com have been inundated with emails about the series abrupt cancellation. Turns out we’re not the only ones.
In an usual move, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler took the opportunity to speak to fans directly on the official CBS JERICHO Message Board:
We have read your emails over the past few days and have been touched by the depth and passion with which you have expressed your disappointment. Please know that canceling a television series is a very difficult decision. Hundreds of people at the Network, the production company and the incredibly-talented creative team worked very hard to build and serve the community for this show — both on-air and online. It is a show we loved too.
Thank you for supporting Jericho with such passion. We truly appreciate the commitment you made to the series and we are humbled by your disappointment. In the coming weeks, we hope to develop a way to provide closure to the compelling drama that was the Jericho story.
Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment
Having fallen victim to the network axe more times than we care to remember (EVERWOOD, FIREFLY, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT to name a few), we at theTVaddict.com appreciate a great fan campaign. So in an effort to do our part, we thought we’d take this opportunity to link to a few sites where you can help out the cause.
And remember, while JERICHO may not have been YOUR favourite show. This could happen to you! So take a moment to send an email, write a letter and help stop yet another quality television show from being replaced by reality TV.
