"Jericho" Back in Action? That's Nuts!

6/5/2007 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

JerichoFor all you super-obsessed "Jericho" nuts out there, worry no more!

CBS is steps away from sealing a deal to bring "Jericho" back from the TV graveyard for at least eight episodes, this according to TVGuide.com. An insider was quoted as saying the deal hinges on signing the actors to new contracts and finding a soundstage to house the show's sets. The series, which focuses on a small Kansas town coping with a new reality after a series of nuclear attacks by terrorists, could return as soon as mid-season. Kaboom!

Jerichoholics have launched all sorts of desperate campaigns to resurrect the show, including bombarding TMZ's email accounts with pleas. People -- listen up -- we can't bring back TV shows!!

Diehard fans have also sent shipments of peanuts to CBS in a move to persuade them to pickup the series. The peanuts were an allusion to a bit of war-cry dialog in the final episode. "Nuts!"

For the first time, television executives will work for peanuts.

Finally, common sense appears to be prevailing! Properly nurtured this series can be turned into a monster hit! Kudos to CBS if they actually follow through with re-newing JERICHO!

I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear some good news..."We at CBS have heard the fans pleas and we want to prove once again that we care what the fans of our shows think. With the overwhelming outpouring of support for Jericho, CBS Entertainment has decided to reverse our decision to cancel Jericho and fans can look forward to seeing its return in January of 08."

Wouldn't that sound GREAT right about now? I thought so too. CBS, I'll take 8 episodes...for now, but we still want more so keep in mind that the Jericho Rangers are watching and we're ready to pick up the phones again and hurl even more NUTS your way if you fail the viewers again. We are determined to see this through to its logical conclusion...MORE Jericho.

Hey Ms. Tassler...your phone's ringing...it's me...More Jericho please. :-) Hope you liked the flowers too.

Scott in Austin.
