'Jericho': Canceled again

Jericho has bitten the dust for a second and no doubt final time. When CBS killed the show (about life in a small Kansas town after a nuclear war) after last spring's cliff-hanging season finale, enraged fans bombarded network programming boss Nina Tassler with tons of peanuts. (A play off a line in the show.) Tassler relented, and the show returned last month for a seven-episode mini-season. But against the weak competition left in network television's own version of a post-apocalyptic landscape, a prime-time schedule populated mostly by reality shows and reruns, Jericho couldn't pull in the viewers. Tassler, in a press release issued Friday afternoon, said the March 25 episode will be the show's last -- and made it clear last spring's nuttiness won't be repeated. "Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program," she observed. "We simply wish there were more."
