Bomb dropped – Jericho canceled
by Doc on Mar.21, 2008, under Television
CBS has finally made its decision – and it wasn’t in favor of Jericho fans. Producers learned yesterday that CBS had canceled the show. Apparently ratings were even lower this season, which didn’t help. The series finale (which was shot just in case) will air next Tuesday, and will bring everything to a conclusion. It does leave a door open to resurrection, but due to the shows cost it is unlikely.
