Power to the People

Or, you know, whatever.

Unlike the idiots at Fox (e.g. regarding “Drive”), it seems that CBS listens to the viewers:

Three weeks after CBS’s cancellation of the apocalyptic drama “Jericho” set off a sustained and creative protest by fans of the first-season series, the network reversed course and announced on Wednesday that it had ordered seven additional episodes to be broadcast late this year or early in 2008.

In a letter to “Jericho” fans that opened simply with “Wow!,” the president of CBS Entertainment, Nina Tassler, praised the “impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion” evident in the effort to save the series. She added that the series could be extended further if fans help recruit more viewers. The letter is posted on the message board at CBS’s Jericho Web site.

Well, hooray. Now start watching, people.
