CBS Kills Off "Jericho"

jericho2.jpgWell that was quick, but certainly painful.

Just a week after hearing that "Jericho" was on the chopping block, CBS has cancelled the show -- again.

Last season, fans sent pounds of peanuts to save the show. CBS brought it back, but not for long. Only seven episodes were shot this season, which included two finales. The one that wraps things up should be airing next week. Hopefully the other will be seen at some point on DVD.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the ending does leave it possible for the show to be picked up on cable. However, if a network doesn't move quickly, its stars will most likely move on to other projects.

"The March 25th episode of Jericho will be the series finale. Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program; we simply wish there were more," CBS said in a statement. "We thank an engaged and spirited fan base for keeping the show alive this long, and an outstanding team of producers, cast and crew that went through creative hoops to deliver a compelling, high quality second season. We have no regrets bringing the show back for a second try. We listened to our viewers, gave the series an opportunity to grow, and the producers put a great story on the screen. We're proud of everyone's efforts.'"

"Jericho" stars Skeet Ulrich ("Scream") as a resident of a town in Kansas that survived a series of nuclear attacks throughout the U.S. -- Rachel Cericola
