Those fanatical, Jericho Television Show fans (yes I'm one of them too) now have a date for their calendars to get excited about. CBS announced their premier date for Jericho: Season 2 for Tuesday, Feb. 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). Given the very sparse number of quality shows (read non-reality tv) that will be airing in early 2008, Jericho should have a chance to shine to a whole new set of viewers.
If your wondering why I call the fans fanatical here's a refresher. You may remember that when it became known that Jericho was going to be canceled last Spring, Fans of Jericho sent in piles of peanuts to the network to send them a message.
Anyone who saw the season finale would recognize the peanuts reference to a wartime gesture of defiance. It probably wasn't just the nuts, but CBS finally broke down and renewed the show for Season 2 if only for seven episodes.
If you're one of those who hasn't seen Jericho season 1 yet I suggest you get caught up and watch Season 1 via one of the following methods:
Here's a few ways to get caught up on the first season of Jericho:
OPTION 1: Apple iTunes Click the button to the right to view Jericho on iTunes:
OPTION 4: Rent Jericho Season 1 at Netflix add it to your queue now for delivery Tuesday, Oct 2nd.
OPTION 5: Watch the shows streamed on NBC.com - NBC has all episodes available to watch online for free.
Whatever you do, please check out the show. I was skeptical when it first aired and didn't watch it, but later caught up when they aired the reruns this past Summer. Not only was I hooked, my wife and daughter all thoroughly enjoyed the show.
