Jericho: Condor

DB Sweeney as Goetz(S02E02) "I'm not a conspiracy nut." - Jake Green

Condor? Really? The most creative code name they could come up with is Condor? How about something meaningful like Savior or something cryptic like Shadow or even something funny like That One Guy Who We All Recognize But Can't Remember What From.

It's nice to see some things never change. Mayor Douchebag is still more concerned with how he looks than with the evil corporation that is clearly infiltrating his town. You just know that meeting the President has always been a dream of his. I guess any old President will do.

Jericho: Reconstruction (season premiere)

Lennie James & Skeet Ulrich(S02E01) As the show began, I couldn't help but feel like I was seeing an old friend. You know, that friend who went away for a semester and you missed because he was always entertaining. I know I wasn't the only one grinning like an idiot as the the new season of Jericho began.

Esai Morales sure has come a long way since he played Ritchie Valens' big brother. Seeing him in another leader role reminds me how good he was on NYPD Blue. Taming Sipowicz is going to look like a piece of cake compared to this job.

Sci Fi Channel is "nuts" for Jericho

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 23rd 2008 10:22AM
JerichoIn a move that should only help the sophomore science fiction series, Sci Fi Channel and CBS announced today that Sci Fi has nabbed up rerun rights for the first two seasons of Jericho. Do you think they paid for the rights in nuts? Ahahaha! ... see what I did there? ... haha ... er, because of the campaign to-- ... uh ... *ahem* Never mind. To begin their exclusive six month broadcast portion of the overall three year deal, Sci Fi will air a four-episode prime time marathon on February 11th, one day before the new season premieres on CBS.

Jericho shoots two endings (just in case)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 18th 2008 2:40PM

JerichoJericho fans (me included) are really excited about the new season coming up (February 12 at 10pm). I have the first three episodes in front of me but I'm waiting until this weekend to watch them.

Producer Carol Barbee tells Sci-Fi Wire that this second season, which is seven episodes long, is actually a contained story with a definite ending. However, since they don't know yet if CBS will give the show a third season, they've actually filmed two endings. One ending shows that everything is OK in the town and the country and the other ending leaves the door open to a third season. As Barbee explains, "I wouldn't call it a cliffhanger as much as I would say you say, 'Oh, OK, now I know where we're going to go.' "

The first episode will focus on the battle between Jericho and New Bern, and after that the reconstruction of the town and the country, though I'm sure not everything is as it seems.

Jericho: The Return - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 29th 2007 12:19PM
First, let me admit that I did not watch CBS' Jericho beyond the first episode. I had various reasons not to watch it beyond the premiere, one being that I simply can't make time for all TV series in my schedule, even if said series are gems. That out of the way, I just watched the preview for Jericho's second season and let me tell you that it piqued my interest enough to put a note on my calendar to watch the show's season premiere on February 12.

Jericho, Season One - DVD review

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 11th 2007 3:07PM

Jericho DVDI suppose we're lucky that this is a "season one" DVD and not a "complete series" set. The nut campaign aimed at CBS worked, and the second season of Jericho will start in a few months. It's only going to be seven episodes long, and then they'll look at those ratings and see if it warrants more episodes.

In the meantime, we have this season one set. You either like the show or you don't, which will help you decide whether you will want the DVD or not. And if you buy it, you're interested in the extras, and on this set they're actually pretty good.

Here's the plan if Jericho is canceled again

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 5th 2007 2:38PM

Jericho was canceled once, only to be saved by a massive nut-sending campaign (and that's probably the first time I've ever typed the words "nut-sending campaign"), and the show will return in a few months for it's second season, which at the moment is slated to last seven episodes (when we last left the town, they were starting a battle with New Bern and military people were on the way). But what if the episodes are low-rated? What will happen in the story if the CBS show is canceled again?

ABC executive session - plus: Lost's Perrineau is back! - TCA report

Stephen McPherson

Big Lost scoop! Harold Perrineau is returning to the serial ABC drama as killer Michael Dawson.

Getting the news out of ABC entertainment president Stephen McPherson wasn't easy, however.

The session began with Hope Hartman, one of ABC's top PR chiefs, getting the day off with some really good news -- because we're on the final legs of the tour's "death march with drinks" all ABC functions will take place on-site at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Woo-hoo!

Esai Morales moving from New York to Jericho

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 24th 2007 7:31PM

Esai Morales will appear on Jericho for most of its seven episode runGet ready for a new face or two when Jericho (a.k.a -- The Little Show That Could) returns to the CBS primetime schedule early next year. One of those faces will be Esai Morales'.

The former NYPD Blue and Vanished star will appear in a recurring role for six of the seven episodes that have been ordered for the new season. Hmm, in the real world that would seem like a regular rather than occurring role. Semantics aside, Morales will play Colonel Hoffman, a career military officer and Iraq War veteran who has not seen or heard from his wife since the day of the attacks.

Inside Jericho's resurrection - TCA report

Skeet Ulrich on CBS' JerichoCBS starts off the morning a little later so we can all file our Emmy reports. Thanks!

Unexpected swag courtesy of today's first panel: Jericho -- a one-pound bag of peanuts and a t-shirt from nutsoline.com/jericho, the Internet campaign that helped bring the canceled fan favorite drama back to life for seven episodes next season.

Before the Q&A gets underway, CBS announces "CBS Eye-alert" a multi-platform viewer alert system that will help viewers find their favorite shows. I'm going to write more about this -- as soon as I figure out what it all means.

But, first, Jericho...

CBS press tour preview day 2 - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 19th 2007 2:58PM

cbs logoOutside of panels for Jericho (which I'm sure is thrilled to be coming back) and Viva Laughlin (which I'm sure is thrilled to have been picked up), CBS' day two of the press tour is about reality (Survivor: China), game shows (Power of 10), research and new media (that still makes my head spin).

No major mingling with talent until the evening at the CBS Stars Party, which might be just as well.

Sadly, the eye network got snubbed in major categories at the Emmys this morning. Julia Louis-Dreyfus (last year's Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy) for The New Adventures of Old Christine, Two and a Half Men (for Comedy Series) and Men's Charlie Sheen (for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy) got nods in top categories. (CBS did score some supporting nods.)

It's too bad our panel with Chuck Lorre (nominated for Men) and his new show -- The Big Bang Theory -- was yesterday. Like with comedy itself, the most important thing about getting Emmy reaction -- is timing.

Mandy Patinkin, Gary Jourdan, Skeet UlrichCSI: Miami's Horatio Cane is getting a son, those kids on How I Met Your Mother are getting a Mom and Jericho fans are getting seven more episodes -- for now.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler offered up some news and story tidbits and fielded inquiries from the press about the off-screen lives of Eye network stars as Wednesday morning's press session got underway.

First up: the story tidbits and other show-related news. "Viewers will get hints about the identity of the mother in How I Met Your Mother," Tassler revealed. (Me, I've always guessed it's Alyson Hannigan -- but I'm not sure I want to see Hannigan's Lily and Jason Segel's Marshall not live happily ever after.)
