From the IMDB Studio Briefing today:

Jericho, the CBS television series that was canceled because of low ratings, then revived following protests from fans, then canceled again because of low ratings, may be revived a second time, the New York Times reported today (Monday). The newspaper said that CBS may follow NBC's recent example with Friday Night Lights in which it sold the DirecTV satellite service the right to air the series before it goes on network TV. The Times said that CBS is considering a similar option in negotiations with cable provider Comcast. Meanwhile, although DirecTV executives have expressed confidence that the Friday Night Lights deal could drive new subscribers to their service, some analysts are expressing skepticism about its ability to do so and forecasting that the DirecTV episodes will wind up being pirated on the Internet.

Hmm.... I'll believe it when I see it.

There's an interview with Jericho exec Carol Barbee up on SciFi Wire that indicates "talks are ongoing to find the show another home, perhaps on a cable network."

Another quote: "There's definitely an Internet series to be had, and we always talked about a graphic novel, and ... a movie," Barbee said. "I mean, there are lots of things that I could easily see as a way to continue the story."

The SFW article ends thusly: Fans wishing to write SCI FI Channel about picking Jericho up should NOT use the e-mail address, but rather should send snail mail here: SCI FI Channel, 21st Floor, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112.)

Not that I'm getting my hopes up or anything...

Still liking this season of Jericho muchly, but I do have a minor quibble about last night's ep. behind a cut to spare the uninterested or delayed-viewers. Spoilers behind the cut and in comments, obviously. )

Also? ReGenesis yet again anticipates the news by a year or so.

New Amsterdam was watchable. Certainly not the worst show to come down the pike, but it feels a bit tentative as of yet. (I don't think any of these comments are particularly spoilery so I'm not cutting them.) I'm not sure what narrative purpose the partner serves, since she's not there for UST, and didn't seem to have a lot to do in the ep, but I'll definitely give it time to settle in. Also, they need someone who's better at applying fake facial hair. To my dismay, about 2/3rds of the way through the ep, I realized that Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (I love that name!) looks like a more Hollywood version of a friend of mine's husband so it's a little weird to find him attractive, but I do. ;D

ReGenesis has started it's last season :( and I spent the first episode of it alternating between happiness over all because it's just so darn good, and spoilers behind the cut )

And then there was Jericho. Okay, I'll admit it. I was genuinely shocked by last night's ending. I'm so used to them leading us down the garden path in the trailers that I really didn't think anything about their spoilery warning in the commercials. But... but... spoilers behind the cut )
