CBS Promises Closure for "Jericho" Fans

CBS Promises Closure for "Jericho" Fans

I had no idea "Jericho" fans were such a passionate bunch. After CBS revealed last week that the apocalyptic drama wouldn't be returning next season, viewers inundated CBS with e-mails, started petitions, and launched a YouTube video campaign.

Well, the network is listening. Over the weekend, this statement from CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler appeared on the show's Web site:

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.

It's unclear what "closure" could mean, since giving the show a second season appears to be out of the question. Two of the suggestions I've seen are a TV movie or some online outlet for tying up the characters' stories. If you're a fan, tell me: What kind of ending would satisfy you? To see two of the fan-made videos from the "Jericho" campaign,

Love this show. Why is the American public so stupid that they watch shows that are lame and predictable and ratings are up for them, like Search for the next Pussycat Doll. Wow!!! That was better than Jericho. The Simple Life. Are you kidding? This show is wonderful and just wow!!! CBS pisses me off.

Jericho was a good show. It was different than all of the other traditional tv shows. My husband and I only watch 2 tv shows together - Jericho & Lost. He was really upset to hear that it was cancelled. I would love to see a tv movie to wrap it all up for us.

Doesn't really surprise me. I am not one of the die hards, but my husband really enjoys the show. In fact this is probably the only program he watches that isn't on the Discovery channel - lol. He was fairly devestated when I told him Jericho was cancelled, so maybe this will console him somewhat :p
