Fall TV Preview: Jericho

Jericho is a haunting drama that takes place in a small town in the middle of Kansas which has been cut off from the rest of the world after what appears to be a nuclear attack on the United States. Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich, Scream) plays a a self-proclaimed "screw-up" who has returned to his hometown after 5 years to collect his inheritance from his grandfather. While he is home, we learn that he and his father, the Mayor of Jericho, do not get along. In fact the Mayor would like Jake to please leave for another 5 years so as not to jeopardize his upcoming reelection. Happy to take his money and run, Jake leaves town almost as soon as he arrives. On his way out of town, an apparent nuclear explosion erupts in Denver, forcing Jake to remain in Jericho. The town erupts in chaos as everyone scrambles to hoard food, water and gas. The show premieres tonight at 8/9c on CBS. The premise of the show has great expectations, but we just hope it can live up to them.

"Happy to take his money and run..." The description of the show is wrong. I watched it last night. He doesn't get the money because his Dad is in charge of the inheritance. His Dad wants to know what he wants the money for and he won't tell him. He says he's 31 and should have it but his Dad says Grandpa put him in charge of it.

Pink - shows how observant I am, I didn't even take notice of the worldwide premiere thing lol! I'm still annoyed with what Channel 10 is doing with Veronica Mars. And I bought One Tree Hill box sets cause the time slots/axing drove me nuts with that show too.
