Jericho canceled; life goes on

I am saddened to say that my favorite TV program, "Jericho," was not picked up by CBS to return this fall. I think this is a mistake on CBS's part. But then again, life goes on, and it's just a TV show.

However, there are some out there that can't seem to cope with this loss. Witness these entries in an online petition to save the show:

i swear, if jericho is taken off the air, that's the last straw for me and the big 4 networks!!!

Im gonna kill myself and my family if you cancel the show.

It is the most stupid idea to finish such a great movie

Julie Raymond
If Jericho doesn't return CBS will not be returning to my household.

Alejandro Fernandez
Hey I love the show with my band

James Elmore
you suck

david decarlo
dont do this to us cbs u suck

Daniel Savitchi
I wanna have Jericho back!How could you stop it??

Pearl Roberts
This makes me sick.

OK, folks, get a life. Yes, it is/was a great show, but life goes on. Threatening to never watch CBS again is like swearing off gasoline for a day; you'll be back, and they know it.

Maybe these posters' lives are just shallow enough that a show like Jericho gives them definition and reason in their lives, and without their weekly guidance from Johnston Green, they will be lost sheep in the desert. If so, this is a sad commentary on this cross-section of TV viewers.

There are many other things to do than to watch TV! Read a book, go for a walk, maybe spend some time with your family and friends! Life does not need to revolve around a TV program!

The horrific technical inaccuracies in Jericho made it impossible for me to get interested in. It violated a couple of simple rules for drama. One was the suspension of disbelief For one to suspend disbelief even the most fantastic tales must have a plausibility to them to be entertaining. The technical inaccuracies made it impossible for a person with the slightest bit of technical knowledge to suspend disbelief.

Crappy writing combined with non existent technical research doomed what could have a great show. The concept is great but if you don't have the basics of the topic down and don't have writers that can create a compelling story without resorting to the run of the mill tv drama fodder you can't expect it to succeed.
