Below is a message from CBS Entertainment.


June 6, 2007

To the Fans of Jericho:

Wow!

Over the past few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a prime time television series. You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard.

As a result, CBS has ordered seven episodes of “Jericho” for mid-season next year. In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more “Jericho,” we will need more viewers.

A loyal and passionate community has clearly formed around the show. But that community needs to grow. It needs to grow on the CBS Television Network, as well as on the many digital platforms where we make the show available.

We will count on you to rally around the show, to recruit new viewers with the same grass-roots energy, intensity and volume you have displayed in recent weeks.

At this time, I cannot tell you the specific date or time period that “Jericho” will return to our schedule. However, in the interim, we are working on several initiatives to help introduce the show to new audiences. This includes re-broadcasting “Jericho” on CBS this summer, streaming episodes and clips from these episodes across the CBS Audience Network (online), releasing the first season DVD on September 25 and continuing the story of Jericho in the digital world until the new episodes return. We will let you know specifics when we have them so you can pass them on.

On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of “Jericho” in such an extraordinary manner. Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone. You made a difference.

Sincerely,

Nina Tassler

President, CBS Entertainment

P.S. Please stop sending us nuts :)

I think Nina has been a really good sport about all of the attention she has gotten over this, I think some of us *ahhhhmmmm, i am not saying who....* need to get her a card to say thank you properly. I will get mine tomorrow :-)


Thank you CBS, Nina.... you have made us so happy, and yes you are right. We have to rally around this show, but its going to be an easy sell Nina, because the story is a great one!

Just wait until those reruns begin, and the DVD comes out! I predict thousands of new fans by the time this week is out..... imagine how much better it will be when it finally gets back on the schedule.

*** Okay, I tried to be professional to the end, but I have to do it -

I get Stanley and Jake back!!!!!!! Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss****

~;-) Now watch this, its so much better now, if that is even possible
