Jericho Season 2... Tonight!
It’s been a strange ride for Jericho fans but the second season is finally here. Hell Yeah! In addition to being resurrected from cancellation by crazed fans, Jericho is in the unique position of being one of very few scripted shows on television due to the writers strike. In fact, the truncated seven-episode season which CBS authorized last spring turned out to be a blessing in disguise because if there had been an eighth episode the WGA walkout would have stopped production on the finale. I wanted more and now I’m glad I didn’t get it. There seems to be positive unintended consequences when it comes to jericho.
If the show’s second season proves to be popular (and the reviews have been good) there might be another season on the horizon and critics tout the premiere as a good jumping on point. Also, being on a 10 o’clock means there will be no completion from American Idol, so the network learned their lesson this time around.
I’m just glad Jericho beat the long odds and that we’ll have something entertaining to watch.
Next stop The Allied States of America…
