031808jericho.gif

Update: CBS Announced on 3/21/08 that it would not renew Jericho.

TVbytheNumbers.com hopes to be your home for Nielsen ratings data for Jericho. Beginning with the season 2 premiere on 2/12/2008 we will begin reporting data. We'll have the overnight numbers up on our site (data Gods willing) on 2/13/08, and the final weekly LIVE plus SAME DAY DVR usage numbers will go up the following Tuesday (in the case of the premiere, we will post the final weekly numbers on 2/19/2008). We will include HH rating and share info, total viewers as well as number of viewers by the 18-49, 18-34, and 25-54 age demographics.

Bookmark this post -- we'll add the data table for season 2 data here so you can compare with the numbers for the first season. If there's anything else you'd like to see please send me an e-mail (robert at tv by the numbers dot com )

*preliminary overnight results

Unfortunately, Nielsen has stopped (at least temporarily) providing us with the data necessary to break out viewers by the age demographics for the last few weeks. We'll cross our fingers for its eventual return.

    It seems to me that the long breaks killed Jericho. The show lost 2mil viewers in the 11/29-2/21 break. The nuts campain probably got the Season 2 Premiere numbers to match the season one end, but with new viewers. The new viewers after watching probably said I got to watch the first season. I see the 5/9/07-2/19/08 losing another 2 million. Nine months is a long time. A lot of people were probably looking for these new 7 episodes around Oct'07.

    Ya it looks like this is the last of Jericho. Too bad its another great show thats going to get axed for another reality show or some show that won't last 2 episodes.

    I LOVE Jericho. I have never gotten involved in a 'save a show' campaign before but Jericho got me hooked. Neilsen just doesn't represent the crowd that watches shows like Jericho. The original Star Trek suffered from poor ratings and was canceled. Other great shows like Firefly were also never represented. It's just sad. I soo wish I was a Nielsen family.

    Why is CBS not promoting it better? I'm no marketing expert but one thing I've learned as an avid consumer is that if you dangle the bait in front of me, I'm most likely going to bite. It's as if they truly don't want the show to survive. And these episodes are even better than last year's. I'm so annoyed. It's stuff like this that drove me away from network television to watch things on the internet or shows on cable. Any chance Sci-Fi would pick up the show and keep it going?

    Why are there no demo numbers for this season of Jericho listed? I believe it did very well for the first episode but nothing has been listed for the two preceding episodes.

    Artzylady, Nielsen stopped providing the spreadsheets with all the demographic breakouts. Now unfortunately we're limited to only the list of top 25 shows in the 18-49 demo. Jericho wasn't one of those. for either of the first two episodes.

    That sucks. This show is MUCH better than anything on those top ten lists.

    I have to cry foul. And I watched all of Jericho season one. One of the problems is that it's NOT always very well written (though sometimes it is!). It's pacing is HORRIBLY slow at times. Stargate Atlantis and Supernatural are two shows I've watched a ton of lately (in addition to Jericho) that week in, week out have better writing and pacing than Jericho. Both shows would no doubt out-perform Jericho if CBS ran them. CBS won't run them though because just like Jericho, the ratings wouldn't be very good.

    I thought the second half of this season of Stargate Atlantis has 'jumped the shark'. After the big allied battle, the show just lost something, and I'm not sure what it is.
