Jericho is excellent entertainment. Check out reruns this summer.
Below is a message from CBS Entertainment.
June 6, 2007
To the Fans of Jericho:
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.
President, CBS Entertainment
P.S. Please stop sending us nuts

I love this Show, this show came on BBC America last year, late summer. I can't wait for series 2 on BBC America. They have already finished Season 2 in the UK, and even planning a spin-off series called Ashes to Ashes.
This is the wiki on Life On Mars. Check it out if you can, I know it's out on DVD in the UK, I have not seen it here yet.
The format of the series mixes science fiction – specifically, time travel – with police drama. The central character is DCI Sam Tyler of Greater Manchester Police (played by John Simm), who, after being hit by a car in 2006, finds himself somehow transported back to 1973. There, he works for Manchester and Salford Police CID as a DI under DCI Gene Hunt (played by Philip Glenister). Over the course of the series, Tyler faces various culture clashes, most frequently regarding differences in his approach to policing compared to that of his colleagues. The series also features a strong ambiguity concerning Tyler's predicament: It is unclear whether he really has travelled back in time, is in a coma in 2006 and imagining his experiences, or if he is from 1973 but mentally unstable.

I posted this at CBS.com: We viewers are aware that canceling Jericho is based on speculation that the show will be unprofitable in the long run. The promise of passionate support isn't enough to save it or make you believe that you've made a mistake. Proven formulas work. The CSI trend is successful because the show's original concept was innovative for dramatic TV, even though viewers had already seen similar stories in documentaries on other channels. Therefore, creating other CSI shows is understandable. The same can be said for Survivor and Amazing Race. Reality shows are successful, although it took a while for Amazing Race to catch on. Fans of that show are extremely passionate and loyal. The same can be said for Stargate. Once that show moved to Sci Fi, it did better than ever. The viewers of Jericho are more likely fans of shows such as Heroes and Lost. We fans must wonder what CBS didn't do to support its own show. We fans have no doubt that CBS may never realize how lucrative Jericho could've been. A new show such as Pirate Master may be successful but more likely will never surpass the initial success of Survivor. The show that brings in overwhelming ratings must have an innovative concept - that requires risk (time and money). Meanwhile, we fans must remain content with formula shows.

It's been awhile, but since only a few of my peoples actually read this damn thing, I can't give myself too much of a hard time. Anyway..this has been a hard year. Some good people close to me have passed away, and it really makes you think about your life, and where you are going with it. I am not so much of a deep introspective person, but with the death of my friend Joe Davis, I have been pushed to internalize, and contemplate what matters to me, and what I want most for myself.
My day job consumes my life, long hours, overtime...leaves little time for things I enjoy. Comics!!!! So I am going to try damned hard, not to let other life issues get in the way of the things that I enjoy doing. Drawing, and comics. I still have to work and pay bills mind you, but I will make a stronger effort to do what I love. With that said...I am scanning, lettering, and halftoning the new Blood Shed Comic. We are putting it on the web along with it's spin off series the Phactor. So stay tuned...more to come.
