Nuts! Jericho Has Been Cancelled

Updated: Monday, March 24, 2008, 5:22 pm -- Apparently I wasn't the only one to notice the left turn the show took in its second season. Will the studios realize they shot themselves in the foot? Probably not.

The television series Jericho had a strong first season depicting life in a small Kansas town after a series of nuclear explosions rip across the United States. But this latest season has been kind of weak, and the writers have been having just a little too much fun stereotyping politicians in western states. Rugged self reliance has been morphed into fascism, IMHO.

Anyway, CBS has pulled the plug for good this time. Alternate endings were shot. The last episode airs on Tuesday evening. The show may be revived on cable.
