“Save Jericho” Update from EP of Show

Carol Barbee, executive producer of the canceled, but hoping to be revived CBS series Jericho, called in to the Shaun O’ Mac Show this past Thursday night to bring viewers up to date on the future of the series and thank everyone for their continued and overwhelming support.

You can listen to the program here (Carol calls in at the 9:54 mark), but I’ve transcribed some of what she said:

“We are working those channels behind the scenes, and we are the ones who are trying to broker something with CBS and there are other networks interested and there is interest..”

At the same time, she let it be known that it was still a “long shot”, but that “they [upper management] are listening, and it is making a difference.”

For more on the campaign, check out these two posts.

    THANK YOU!!!! We love all the attention we are getting now, they have to listen at CBS, or they are going to be an enemy to all. It is time for Les Moonves to come into the new media, or retire if he can’t

    Jericho fans are not going away anytime soon….
    We are going to let our voices be heard. We just want our show back and we won’t stop until some changes are made. The offering of mindless reality shows is ruining TV….

    Thanks for the article. Jericho is a terrific, thought provoking show for the whole family (mine from 10 to 88 yrs of age). Great conversations and bonding have resulted from watching this show. Certainly hope CBS or other network has the sense to bring Jericho back and keep it going. This is a very timely subject in today’s world.

    Great work is being done by the rangers…keep up the fight!

    Thanks for covering the fight.
    Shaun’s shows have been amazing & so has the actors, writers & producers who have called in to express their views.

    We won’t stop until we get it back!

    Shaun has been great to the Bring Jericho Back movement!

    I will NOT watch anything on CBS until they change their mind… and I’m encouraging everyone I know to do the same. Their fall line-up looks terrible, and I’m not interested in another lame reality show. The only thing worth watching now is Letterman, and sorry Dave, until Jericho comes back this family won’t be tuning in.

    Thanks so much for writing about the SAVE JERICHO campaign in such a positive manner! We are NOT quitting or going away! We have blocked CBS from viewing in my families and extended families homes (5 viewing households), but will be overjoyed to return to CBS when Jericho is renewed for it’s second season! We have taken a stand and will continue to stand strong until we are heard! We are so tired of being told by the networks what we like and what we don’t like and it’s time for CBS to begin to rely on the ratings posed by the very platform they created for us…TV and an INTERACTIVE WEBSITE!

    NUTS TO CBS!!!

    Our efforts are working. CBS needs to listen and learn from their viewers, If they want them back.
    Great article thanks for giving us our second wind.

    This is an excellent example of the power of peaceful organized protest. We have CBS’s attention but we can’t allow ourselves become complacent when victory is so close at hand. Continue the fight Jericho Rangers.

    Thank you for the update on the Save Jericho campaign. The Jericho Rangers were glued to our internet radio last night to hear Carol’s words of encouragement.

    Jericho is the only show I have ever cared enough to fight for. And, I will fight to the bitter end.

    I,too, will fight til the end to save JERICHO! It is a great family show….filled with such excitement. The hour went by so quickly!
    My entire family of 4 watched every week and never missed an episode. I don’t think that has ever happened in our family. I know hubby and I NEVER agree on what to watch.
    We’d really like to see more of the story of what happens to the world, Jericho and the characters. I love every last one of them!!
    Well, not Constintino or Gray too much.

    Thank you for your update on the save Jericho campaign. We are dilligently trying to make network television as we know it take notice that the public isn’t going to sit idley by and let them keep scrapping quality programming. Jericho is a fantastic show that bring the feeling of community together like no other show on tv can. I am a faithful and loyal follower of Jericho and don’t like feeling as if my dedication is diposable. I am not the most intelligent person in the world but I know what I like to watch on television and I like Jericho. I am sick to death of stupid reality shows and programs that have no storyline at all. This show really makes you use your head and think about what we would do in the same situations as the townspeople of Jericho. They all stand together to take care of one another and see to it that noone goes without food or water or medical attention. Noone is jumping from this bed to that bed, everyone is taking care of everyone else. No questions asked, you need something, we’ll help you. Isn’t that something especially in this day that this country needs right now, us all looking out for each other? No matter what we should be thankful that someone wrote this show and that real values are coming thru to the audience and being felt so deeply. That is why I fight so hard to save Jericho, it means more to me than I can put into words.

    Thanks Judi -well said, and I totally agree. This is why WE FIGHT.!!

    Thank you for a very nice, well-written article. I listened to Shaunomac’s radio program last night, and was thrilled to hear this update. All of the JERICHO fans have been working long and hard, and it’s just nice to hear what we’ve been saying is being heard. Quality programming is such a rare and precious thing these days, and CBS really should reconsider their decision to cancel JERICHO.

    It’s rather nostalgic watching this campaign unfold. I’m probably giving away my age, but I was one of those millions of fans who wrote letters to NBC in order to save the original STAR TREK series. I well remember the joy it gave me to realize that a group of ordinary people could and did accomplish their goal. the JERICHO fans have already far exceeded what those STAR TREK fans did in they’ve managed to do all of this in a little over two weeks. No group of fans has ever come together so quickly to accomplish so much in such a short period of time. Kudos to you all.

    Thank you again for the great article, and I say keep up the good work, Jericho fans! Together you’re a lite shining so brightly CBS cannot ignore it.
