Jericho might have its mysteries, but it’s no Lost, not yet anyway. But don’t tell the programmers at CBS. The network is going to conclude the cliffhanging serial drama’s “Fall Season” (that’s a new one) after eleven episodes on November 28, then keep the show on hiatus for ten weeks.
It’s set to return Feburary 21st, with a Lost-style flashback, beginning with life in the small Kansas town before the country is bombarded with a nuke blasts.
So how is CBS going to keep fans hooked through the long nuclear winter?By driving them to the Internet. CBS will try to hold on to viewers for the 70 days with website action that includes original content, interactive features and sneak previews. The network will also keep streaming all Jericho episodes on its broadband channel innertube broadband channel. Sometime it seems as if those network geniuses are conducting a big Lost-style experiment on all of us…
(Meanwhile, ABC has yanked Six Degrees, the highbrow series fromLost boss JJ Abrams. They claim it’s coming back with new episodes in January. Wanna bet?)
