"Jericho" Fans Might Be Wearing Down CBS

"Jericho" Fans Might Be Wearing Down CBS


Rumor has it the slightly insane tactic of sending thousands of pounds of peanuts to the CBS offices in New York may actually be working toward getting "Jericho" renewed for another season. To my bafflement (since I didn't think stunts like this actually worked in real life), there is a "source" claiming that CBS is "thisclose" to announcing the renewal of the show that is, apparently, worth its weight in nuts. Even the AP is reporting on the rumor, sending wild hope into the hearts of "Jericho" fanatics everywhere:

The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly. A decision on whether to bring the show back, probably for a midseason run, is imminent, the source said.

The network apparently has been impressed by the display of viewer passion, which included the delivery of 50,000 pounds of peanuts to its New York offices.

If this is true, it's an amazing testament to what people can accomplish when they put their minds to it, I guess. Or, as the "motivation of the day" on JerichoLives.com puts it: "A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence." It's also an amazing testament to the power of peanuts. Now I know how to wear down my next opponent.
