Jericho Gets Full Season Order From CBS

Guest Author - Michelle Snow

Series like "Jericho" are a risky proposition for a network. And to be honest, when I heard it was going to air on CBS, I didn't have much hopes for it. After all, this was the same network that cancelled "Threshold," my favorite new series of last season, without giving fans a resolution to the story.

The show, about the aftermath of a nuclear attack, has averaged 11.3 million viewers and a 3.4 rating among adults aged 18-49, boosting CBS' performance on Wednesday nights.

The network has rewarded this with an order for a full season of the show, which is news that made me very happy. I've been a fan of this show since it first debuted. The story of a small isolated town in the Heartland of Kansas slowly finding out that America has suffered a nuclear war is unfolding with skilled writing and just the right amount of tension. You really feel like you're going through it with them.

The cast is another reason the show is so good, featuring film and tv veterans like Gerald McRaney ("Simon & Simon," "Deadwood"), Pamela Reed ("Grand," "The Simpsons"), and Skeet Ulrich (Scream, "Into the West"), alongside newer faces like Sprague Grayden ("Joan of Arcadia") and Ashley Scott ("Dark Angel," S.W.A.T.), and Shoshannah Stern.

If you haven't had the chance to check out this great series, CBS is offering the past three episodes for viewing online. It's free at the website for the series: www.cbs.com/primetime/jericho/

Are you a fan of the show? Saw it and didn't like it? Either way, let me know on the message boards or drop me a line.
