Lennie James as Robert Hawkins on Jericho...we weren't expecting any at this point, were we?  I'm sad to say I wasn't, but I'm sorry the news isn't better. 

Jericho did a 3.3/6 (household rating/share) in the early overnight numbers.  Things got a little worse than last week.  I have no idea whether that plays into which episode CBS airs on 3/25 or not at all.  It was better than Big Brother's 3.2/5, but a lot worse than the repeat of NCIS which did a 6.9/11.

Viewer numbers and the 18-49 demo will be posted in the normal overnight ratings post.

    I still don't see why Military families wouldn't like it. Jericho isn't fighting the US government, they're fighting a usurper corporate governemnt. Whatever, someone was just trying to troll it up in here I think.

    There are always going to be detractors. I see Jericho not as an anti-establishment entity, but as an anti anti-corruption movement that wants to get rid of the “virus” that has infiltrated their government.

    Sure, there are parallels between Jericho, 9/11, and Iraq, but for me, as a viewer; I see it as what COULD happen if a movement like Jennings and Rall actually overthrew our government and the chaos that would ensue if people didn't take a stand like the citizens of Jericho. It's what you want it to be. Unfortunately, for some people, it's that show that's always going to be compared to Iraq, but not for me. It's about choosing to survive the fight.

    I agree that 10 p.m. is late but don't agree with the political and/or military connections mentioned above or below from something that happened in 2004. It's a TV show and one that has captured my attention since the beginning. It's a “wow, I didn't think about that possibility” show that stirs debate and begs to continue. What will be next? Going to be a long week I think.

    It is interesting to think that the one country that could overtake our country is our country.

    The numbers are telling you that millions of folks would rather watch a rerun than a reality show. That's what the numbers tell you.

    The numbers also tell you that after that rerun there is nothing to hold your attention and you go read a book or get online.

    The numbers further tell you that once these millions of people find something else to do, they don't come back for a 10pm show. They didn't for Cane either.

    The numbers tell you that considering you have to get up at 5 am the next day and because you can record it and/or watch online, there is no reason to force yourself to stay awake until 11pm to watch mindless drivel to get to the one show you actually are anticipating.

    The numbers tell you lots of things if you listen.

    I doubt there are many people who love Jericho more than I do. Because I have to get up at 5am I just can't stay up that late. I'm approaching zombie state by 930. Jericho is on by 10, I do ok during the show, I nod off during commercials, and by 11 I'm just dreading getting up at 5. And so now I watch online the next day, simple as that.

    To me Jericho has always been an 8pm show. It did fairly well at first. The hiatus killed it and people have never gotten back on. Reruns on Friday at 10 didn't help, then waiting another 8 months to air 7 new episodes on Tuesday at 10pm was worse. This show never got a break.

    Try jerking LOST around like that. See what happens.

    Lost did get jerked around one season like that, and they lost viewers. I stopped watching, but they always had the one hour, “Previously on LOST,” shows constantly for viewers to catch up.

    I wonder what the ratings are for the reruns of season 1 on Scf-Fi.
