'Jericho': It's really over
CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler announced today that "Jericho," the low-rated series that earned a second season through fan support, will conclude with its series finale on Tuesday.
"Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program," Tassler said. "We simply wish there were more of them."
Two endings had been prepared for the end of the seven-episode season. Tuesday's finale aims to provide "closure" for fans, a source at the studio said.
The series attracted 7.2 million viewers when it returned Feb. 12, but the audience had dropped off to 5.8 million by last week.
