    I wouldn’t hold my breath for Jericho to help CBS weather the strike.

    It was low-rated and poorly received by the audience and CBS has given no indication the new short season will be any different.

    About Jericho, I only watched a few episodes before life got in the way, but I seem to recall that it was getting pretty good ratings during its fall ’06 run. I believe that things went downhill only after the long (3 month?) hiatus. Not all that dissimilar from what happened to Lost last season as well. And with few other new shows still on, Jericho will likely get the benefit of more prominent advertising and a good timeslot.

    It appears that ABC is holding the 2 remaining “Brothers & Sisters” episodes for February sweeps (perhaps Feb 10 and 17)because it has scheduled reruns for Jan 20 and 27, and the Super Bowl airs Feb 3.

  • Rena Moretti

    Jason, I believe you recall wrongly the Jericho ratings.

    While I’m sure the average audience was higher before the hiatus than after, it was mostly because that included the well-promoted premiere.

    Jericho never had good ratings and I would be flabbergasted if it got traction even without competition because of the strike.

    My prediction is that it will bleep slightly in its season 2 premiere because of renewed promotion, and lacking an all-out PR assault (the kind that keeps The Office and Family Guy afloat through weekly PR expenditures) will go back to norm and keep falling.

    I think ‘Samantha Who’ has a new episode Mon. Jan 28 and ‘Big Bang Theory’ has one in the can that has never aired (probably due to Chuck Lorre’s stance on the strike).

    Jon, our best info has the 1/28 Samantha Who as a rerun, but if you can provide a link I will happily update.

    Same with Big Bang Theory, our best info has that all 8 of the produced episodes were aired, but, again, we are open to correction if you can link the info.
