Reruns of Jericho Season One start tonight on CBS

Tonight’s the night, y’all!  Reruns of season one of Jericho begin starting tonight and running every Friday through the summer on CBS.  This show, starring ex-Boyfriends Skeet Ulrich and Gerald McRaney, was canceled at the end of last season, but after a successful peanut-sending campaign on the part of its fans, CBS has agreed to make a handful of episodes for next year for a trial second season.  Go CBS and Jericho fans!

If you missed the series the first time around, now’s your chance to get caught up in preparation for it’s short season next winter.  You can also watch the full season for free on the CBS web site:  http://jerichorises.com.  I myself only watched about the first three or four eps, thinking I’d just save the rest for DVD, so I’m particularly psyched to get to watch it for free this summer instead of having to wait until September for the disks to come out.  Yay.

Please note that after I mentioned the Save Jericho campaign in the So You Think You Can Dance write-up last month, I got a few emails from some fans who warned me that the first few episodes of the series started off kind of shaky and that if I didn’t fall immediately in love with it, I should stick it out until at least episode five.  So, let’s all try to hang in there, even after the scene in which Skeet uses a juice box straw to do an emergency tracheotomy on a kid, okay?  We’ll make a pact right now.  We’re in for at least five, right?  Deal.

Tune in tonight for episode one, 9pm on CBS.  Be there, or run the risk of having 300 tons of peanuts delivered to your front door in protest.

UPDATE: Some bad news — looks like CBS will actually be airing episode one tonight, but then next week will show a recap episode that explains events from the first 11 episodes and then jump right into episode 12.  So, the only option for seeing episodes 2-11 will be via the Internet on the CBS web site, or to wait until September for DVD.  Now I’m torn again about waiting for the DVDs, because watching 10 hours of tv on my computer by next Friday doesn’t really appeal to me too much.  Drat.  Methinks I needs to rethinks.

Oh, and p.s. the new season of Doctor Who starts tonight on Sci-Fi, and I heard FOX will be showing the last two episodes of the canceled Drive with Nathan Fillion next week as well.

    YAHOO for Dr. Who!!! I miss my Eccleston, but Tennant isn’t a bad consolation prize at all!!

    I love love LOVE Christopher Eccleston, of course, but I have to admit, I’m liking Tennant better. He’s just a smidgen goofier than Eccleston was, and I’m lovin’ that! But it was definitely a blast to see Eccleston let his hair down a bit, so to speak — after seeing him play so many really really serious parts (“Jude,” e.g.), it was great seeing him play zany. I wish he’d stuck around for at least a second season!

    you can get jericho on itunes also. it’s still sitting at your computer to watch it, unless you have the AV hookup to hook your ipod to your TV (or have appleTV) but it is another option… 🙂

    Very true! In fact, you can get the pilot episode for FREE from iTunes at the moment. Sah-weet! I’ve snagged the first three to watch on my iPod this weekend while on a road trip, but will probably watch the others on the CBS site, since it does cost $1.99 per episode to get them off iTunes.

    I watched all of the episodes of JERICHO. It really should still be on the air. It is the best show I have seen in years. You can watch them in full episodes with minimal commercials at http://www.fancast.com for free and the second season without commentary at http://www.joost.com. It’s worth the time!
