Jericho: Approaching The Finale
Edna, our hometown just isn't the same anymore. Do you think we Rangers can keep it alive?
I truly do hope so, Margie, but I just don’t know. We’ve seen a lot of changes in the past year around here, haven’t we?
I have given up on the CBS board. I should have done it a long time ago. There would never have been a Season 2 if we'd had all these squabbles and negativity back during Nuts.
It appears to me that there's less concern about saving Jericho than there is about egos and being right. Jericho has always come first with me and it always will.
I am firm in my belief that there will be a Season 3 but, if there isn't, I am going to enjoy the heck out of these last 2 episodes.
"The problem is, unless you are Paris Hilton -- or even young people of somewhat lesser wealth -- there's not many of you there, much to the chagrin of TV marketers.
Fox network can lay claim to getting more 18-34 viewers than anyone -- but the vast majority are not upper-income TV viewers, those who make $75,000 or $100,000 a year.
Marketers -- like wireless phone, car, and entertainment companies -- would love to sell young people more expensive stuff.
No doubt, there are some rich kids who watch MTV, Comedy Central, or E! But even then, they might be what older, rich viewers are sometimes called: "light TV" viewers.
These are viewers who, because of their cash, wind up participating in better, non-TV activities -- all the stuff that money can buy for an entertaining good time.
In that regard, TV is good entertainment at a relatively cheap price -- attracting just the type of consumers TV advertisers increasingly don't want."
