"Jericho" Fans are Seriously Nuts

"Jericho" Fans are Seriously Nuts

I told you the other day about the massive campaign to save "Jericho," but little did I know that was only the beginning. We're not just talking about message board comments and YouTube videos now — we're talking about nuts. Real, physical, edible nuts — literally tons of them — that fans are sending to CBS offices in New York and LA.

The nuts thing (which comes from the line Skeet Ulrich's character used to turn down an offer of surrender from a neighboring town in the final "Jericho" episode) really took off on Monday, when the Jericho Lives folks partnered with Nuts Online to pool money and send shipments of nuts to CBS. The first day, fans ordered 1,200 pounds of nuts, which arrived at CBS headquarters in New York on Tuesday. A whopping 4,000 pounds arrived today, and another 4,000 pounds have already been ordered for tomorrow — along with a couple of hundred surplus pounds for the network's LA office.

Now, I don't watch "Jericho" — and I admit the military-inspired instructions on the Jericho Lives site freak me out a little — but I'm loving this nuts campaign. I actually cheered a little when the live nut counter (yes, I said live nut counter) topped 10,000 pounds. I would also just love to know how much the CBS bigwigs are dying inside every time a UPS truck pulls up these days. "What? Two more tons of nuts? Greeeeat ..." To watch a video of the first 1,000 pounds arriving at CBS,

I'd never even heard of this show, but your post brought to mind an old crush that I had completely forgotten about!! Skeet Ulrich was so freaking hot! Why can't I find any recent pix of him!?

Thanks so much for such a wonderful article! We're over 10 TONS of nuts so far! Jericho fans will settle for nothing less than season 2!!! Dont let CBS win this battle...change the way these tv networks view their shows and the viewers FOREVER... This is about more than Jericho..its old media vs new media and old way of metering viewers vs the new media revolution. CBS built an immense online presense for JERICHO, encouraged people to get involved and watch the show online and now they are taking Jericho away... CBS bemoans the demo and how the young people are not watching on TV..hello?? They are watching on TV and online on the platform YOU built and encouraged people to use.. The Nielsens have been a flawed way of looking at viewing habits of TV shows for years...Are you going to let the select few with those precious Nielsen meters decide what the REST of us are going to watch??? Again this fight is important to Jericho but more important that we the viewers be heard about how popularity of tv shows are figured out now in this new age.. If you are sick and tired of these holier than thou network executives disrespecting audiences by putting shows on and then yanking them off the air or bouncing them around the schedule with ruthless disregard for its audience...this is your fight.. If your sick and tired of being force fed this reality tv show garbage like a crack addict then this is your fight !! If you want the networks to give us more quality original programming that is not a spin off or rip off of another series...then this is your fight. If your a cable tv fan who wants a show to be able to come back to the networks for..then this is your fight If television itself is ever going to evolve back into what it was meant to be...then this is your fight.. In the end even if we do not prevail in this battle, CBS will surely know we were here and we will have left a mark on CBS for years to come.... CBS and its egomaniacal executives have to be reminded that yes we the audience DO matter. These days ahead are long and treacherous and we are dealing with a billion dollar heartless corporation..remember we are their viewing public, if we do not win this we can ultimately win by NOT watching CBS. CBS would think they won in the short run but in the long run they will be the true losers... Now push ahead and speak out to the media and all who will hear you... Get up off your chairs and couches and do something...MAKE A DIFFERENCE !!! www.jericholives.com www.jerichorallypoint.com www.nutsonline.com/jericho http://jerichoboard.cbs.com/n/pfx/forum.aspx?nav=messages&webtag=cbsmbjericho NUTS TO YOU CBS!!!!

If CBS has had their fill of nuts, all we want is another season of Jericho. The nuts can be donated to a charity, sent overseas to our troops,whatever. NO Jericho-Nuts to CBS. No Jericho-No Cbs.I'm sure by now they have had their fill of phone calls-212-945-3247-and emails too! You can go to CBS.com to get the full list of phone numbers and e-mail numbers if you would care to join the fight! We also have an online petition to save Jericho and one to dump CBS stock. You can find these on google under save jericho!

jaja they really gonna regret it. they have to watch what they're doing wrong because they keep canceling shows that people watch and they don't notice... I like a lot the show "out of practice" they even nominated one of the stars... and then they canceled because of the rating, they don't let us fall in love with the show... they are nuts....
