Those CBS Dickheads cancelled Jericho!
« on: May 16, 2007, 09:38:59 AM »
One of my favorite TV series this year, with tons of fan support, and those insane executives and Les Moonvies over at CBS cancel it to makeway for..


get this... Kid Nation: A REALITY SHOW where kids are let loose in a NM town and try to create order?!?!?!!?!?!? ??? ??? ??? :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

What the hell is wrong with these guys? And they're most anticipated Drama is basically a vampire looking for love in modern times called Moonlight. Didn't we get enough of that w/ Angel and Buffy?

Jericho was one of the most original shows to come out in a while. It was like Red Dawn, but thought out, and not cheesy, and actually showed what you expected if America was attacked. I can personally say, I will never watch that network again. Ever! They screw themselves over w/ advertisers by making the show available w/o commercials on Comcast On Demand and their own website 2 hours after it airs on tv. They are nuts! How can you expect a show to succeed w/ advertisers and ratings when you make it available on a more desireable medium? Didn't work for Black Donnellys, Vanished, Andy Barker PI, or Nights of Prosperity. It's basically a hangman's noose. They say that people are"shying away from Serial Dramas". That just means that people are becoming more retarded from viewing crap like Kid Nation you put on air. The death of storytelling is upon us as far as network tv is concerned. Only channel I'm watching now is FX. At least I know that they don't sacrifice their show's quality for meaningless crap.

 :grr: :grr: :grr:

I think people shying away from dramas more has to do with the over saturation of dramas on network television more than people being stupid....  though still partly because people are stupid, how many CSI's and Law & Orders can they actually follow?

CSIs, Laws and Orders, but what about the many medical shows: Grey's Anatomy, Grey's Anatomy Spinoff, ER, House. And all the murder ones, not including CSI like Cold Case, Without A Trace, Bones, about 10 others. And how many cop shows are there!?!?! I say we limit it to one specific genre a show.

Medical: House
Murder: Original CSI
Cop: The Shield
Nuclear Apocalypse Drama: Jericho
Stuck On an island drama: Lost
Anti-terrorism show: 24
Illegal Cross-Country Road Race Drama: Drive
Space Western: Firefly
Mockumentary comedy: The Office
Single Camera Non-laugh track comedy: Arrested Development
Stuck in Space 2 hour Serial Comedy: MST3K


And just cancel ALL reality tv shows.

I'm just gonna start reading more books.

This is exactly why I don't watch television anymore. I've seen too many good shows I was enjoying cut down before their time. It's DVD all the way now.

Here, here!  I just got and watched Pan's Labyrinth; I am a whole lot more happier than if I had to have spent that time watching tv.  Shoot, I won't have to worry about getting HD if I stick to good ole DVD.  A 1,000 dollars worth of good movies, rifftraxes, anime, manga, and books right there!

As a tiny favor to me, please sign this petition. Use fake names if you have to. It will only take 10 seconds.

I signed, but if the Amish come knocking on my door trying to sell me applebutter, you will be in for it.   :angry:

I used my real name since when I put in my email of "robertpreed@sbcglobal.net", it seemed kind of pointless to use a fake name!

Thanks Rob. Open up a fake email if you have to. I haven't gotten any spammers, and I've signed more than 1 online petition. It would've worked for Arrested Development if Hurwitz wanted to continue.

Jericho even had a quick nod on The Soup.

"Why did they cancel Jericho? That was a good show."

Why?   Cuz faux reality shows and lame skills contest shows cost nothing to produce while quality shows cost money.

Sigh, at least we have our rifftrax!

That is of course why online petitions are entirely meaningless.

I watched the first half of the series, but after it came back i quickly lost intrest.

Still love Lost though.

I can't wait for Monk and Psych to get new episodes. Especially Psych. Funniest show on cable..
