Jericho or bust: I say bust.
On Friday the producers of Jericho took out a full page ad that looked kind of like a real estate ad. "Jericho and more than 6 million fans need a new home. Incredible storyline to continue. Network needed. Loyal fan(s) will follow."
Nice work on making it look like a real estate ad during the biggest housing slump in years. But they are not far off.
The value of the property has gone down. It's not worth what it once was. When CBS brought it back the ratings were worse than the year before. That meant that not all of the loyal viewers that sent peanuts to CBS went back to the show.
The first part worked. You got them to put the show back on the air. That's very hard to do. Usually a show has to show promise to get another season. But then the ratings went down. After convincing the networks, the loyals needed to get new viewers. Take some of that letter writing/website making energy and put it into getting more viewers. Maybe send people at home peanuts.
Maybe you can use your efforts to getting wi-fi on the bus.
