Jericho Fans Attack Nielsen Ratings Over Second Cancellation

Jericho Fans are at it again, this time they are fighting Nielsen for showing their show in an ugly light.

Fans of the CBS show Jericho are at it again after a second cancellation. This Campaign is large and is sweeping through the Sci-Fi community. Although they are mad at CBS this time they are pointing the finger to Nielsen Ratings, who they claim to have been misleading the public. On many Jericho related sites fans claim to be mailing nuts to Nielsen.

In a press release from a popular Jericho blog they list the faults of Nielsen. Part of the press release stated, "The Nielsen Ratings were not high enough to encourage CBS to buy into a season three, leading to its second cancellation days before the airing of the final episode. The final episode had been shot with two endings; a cliffhanger in the case of being picked up for another season, and what many fans deem as a cliffhanger that concluded the 7 episode arc storyline. The latter aired, and many fans were inspired further to start up the fight to preserve Jericho for another round of storytelling."

As the movement begins to start up again, fans hope to see Jericho again.
