Good for Jericho. Liked the show. It's former cast has been showing up as one-off characters in various shows over the last year plus. Sprague Grayden (Heather) has even been on Sons of Anarchy all season, as Donna, Opie's wife.

Smart move by the CW it's Sunday night is going to be flooded with Jericho fans.

The fight for season three continues on the Universal HD board. Also watch for the fan made Save Jericho commercial to air Nationally this month on Universal HD.

Go Rangers!

Too bad they didn't take advantage of new episodes of Moonlight and Jericho on the same night.

Its time to just fire Dawn and close this network for good at the end of the year and bring back The WB.

I know where I'll be on Sunday nights... watching Jericho on the CW! Everyone, if you haven't seen it, check it out. You won't be disappointed! Join the fight for new episodes!

It doesn't surprise me that CW programming on Sunday night wasn't successful. It just wasn't very interesting... "Valentine" was the only program that I even cared for,(yeah Christine Lakin and Autumn Reeser) and from the pilot episode I knew the count down to their demise had begun...

I LOVE JERICHO!! But I want NEW episodes!!
Having it on the CW on Sunday night is NOT going to bring new fans. This news does NOT make me happy.
It is just something the network did to save money.

'Valentine' was a fluff show, but I kind of enjoyed it. Never got into 'Easy Money.'
For as long as I can remember, Sundays have been nothing nights for both the CW and WB when they were separate. They might as well just run repeats because it's pretty obvious nobody's watching.
Without 'Top Model,''90210' and 'Gossip Girl', I don't know why the CW should even exist.

CW has to end at the end of the year, that network has been a disaster since day one and its b/c their scared to fire the main problem and that's Dawn. MGM movies in prime time from the 80s like Troll, DAMN! They could've just brought new episodes of Jericho and brought Moonlight before Sci-Fi did.

I hope Surviving Suburbia finds a home as it was the only MRC I was looking forward to. Rita Rocks is a ratings hit on Lifetime and it needs a companion show so that's the perfect home for it. I still think that none of the networks can illaford to pass up on Surviving Suburbia especially ABC.

Given that Jericho failed to attract crowds as a brand new show, it'll be interesting to see if re-runs of a CBS failure bring in more viewers than a CW original.

Jericho received huge amounts of hype that never were justified by the ratings of the show (a rarity on CBS, which specializes in winning ratings races while being ignored by the press)

The reliance of CW and SciFi of hyped up shows that don't deliver ratings is one of the reasons it's not unlikely that CW will shutter its doors soon.

The sad thing is that a competent executive group could have made this network a huge success.

Hiring Dawn Ostroff who had just killed UPN by making it a clone of failing WBN was irresponsible management at its ugliest.

Yes, Jericho fans will be there. Too bad no one can figure out how to count us! I'm watching on DirecTV, so you can ask DirecTV for the numbers if you want to count me. If you insist on using the same old Neilsen ratings, you will get the same group of folks who only seem to watch any reincarnation of a CSI type show. This is killing TV.
