TV Ad Script by RubberPoultry

In September of 2006, 23 US cities were leveled by nuclear attacks.

A small midwestern town became the central battleground for a new kind of drama.

and then... Jericho was cancelled.

Fans revolted and the network responded with an abbreviated second season.

9 months of silence, a crippling writer's strike and a new time slot resulted in a second cancellation.

Now, Jericho fans fight for quality programming once more.

We need your help saving Jericho again.

CBS Board Deletion Hours

After several observation the deletions that have been plaguing the CBS Boards appears to occur between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM PT. We recommend that any posting of campaign information on the CBS Boards not occur during these hours.

IMDb Campaign

Much thanks to Pennie Ronning for bringing this back to our attention.
The leading website used by ALL film and television people is IMDb (Internet Movie Database). For those of us with a professional subscription, we have access to a significant amount of information available on this website. One of the pieces of information is called a MOVIEmeter. This meter ranks the order in which television shows AND movies legitimately credited within the industry are "searched for" on IMDb. Last week Jericho was ranked at 84. Today, Jericho is ranks at 231. The highest it has ever ranked is 42 which was the week of Sept. 24, 2006. The highest ranked television show currently is House and that comes in at #46 with Heroes not too far behind. Right now, #1 is the movie 21.

STARmeters on IMDb rank people. Johnny Depp is currently #1. The highest Skeet Ulrich has risen is to #62 - again, the same week of Sept. 24, 2006. He is currently ranked as #951. Last week he was in the 700's.

Basic information is available for free on IMDb and the ranking system includes all of the searches conducted from the free search bar site also.

Here is the link:

Everyone needs to be typing Jericho into the search bar and then clicking enter. And doing this repeatedly! Every day! I also suggest doing this for as many of the cast as everyone can.

Keeping the popularity high on the Internet for Jericho and all associated with the show is very important right now.

Getting Jericho (and any of the cast) to the #1 slot and keeping it/them there for as long as we can would be very beneficial toward PR. Again, IMDb is THE MOST used site by everyone in the entertainment industry -- the media pays attention to it also.

From Gigi (KW223) at the CBS Boards:

I think I have come up with an easy way to vote on IMDb. I've been doing it this way. Here goes:
Voting for Jericho Episodes:
1. Search for Jericho. Click on Jericho.
2. Under the Overview section on the left, click "episode list".
3. Click on each episode, then under the picture on the left, click on "add to My Movies".
4. Now go to "My Movies" on the navigation bar at the top. It will bring up all your Jericho episodes. (Mine brings up 4 pages).
5. Start on the first page. Scroll down and at the bottom of the "Vote" column, click on "Make Ballot".
6. Rate each of the episodes (drop down menu) then at the bottom of the column, click on "Cast Votes".
7. You'll get a message page telling you the votes have been counted.
8. Go back to My Movies and continue on to the second page on your list and follow the steps again.
It really is easier than having to vote for each episode individually. Hope this helps everyone!

Saving Jericho - Be a Fan

This isn’t so much about a new or existing campaign but a practical way to ensure a future for Jericho. We can write all the letters we want or spend all the money we want on billboards, ads and nuts but it will not mean anything if we do not have one essential commodity, fans or more to the point a vibrant growing fan base. It is fans that can make or break a show, fans who tune in to watch, fans who purchase merchandise (DVD’s, memorabilia), fans who can rescue a show from cancellation (Friday Night Lights) or fans who can bring a show back from the dead (Jericho). Without fans nothing can be accomplished. Therefore it is important that fans should not be neglected but nurtured. How do we do this? How do we develop a vibrant, growing fan base? Let me tell you a few ways we can do this.

Discuss, discuss, discuss! Really, we’re fans this is what we’re suppose to do. We need to discuss the past episodes, the future episodes and Jericho in general. We can speculate on season three. We can discuss what we would like to see in future episodes. We can talk about how the characters developed and where we think they are headed. We should discuss Jericho with each other, with our friends and with our neighbors. We should discuss on message boards, at the water cooler, on our patios and in our neighborhood watering hole. Wherever fans meet we should discuss. We need to revive the Episodes, Mythology, The Residents of Jericho and Season 2 Burning Questions folders.

Reach out to other fans. I know this may be a shock to you but not all fans come to the CBS board or the other message boards. How many of you would never be here if Jericho had not been canceled last May? There are many more fans out there that we need to connect with and keep up to date with what is going on. These fans will not come to us. We need to go to them. Yes, this means we must venture out from these boards and find them. While this can be scary, it can be so rewarding. How many of you who were involved with the Tom Tooman game met up with the Unfiction folks? Did you regret it? Did you come across some Jericho fans you never met before? While maintaining traffic on the CBS board is important it should not be to the exclusion of everything else including meeting up with other fans.

Recruit new fans. The only way we will grow is by recruiting new fans. I know; I know “how can we recruit new fans if there are no new episodes being made?” It didn’t stop Star Trek fans. The reason there were four series and six movies for 18 years was a growing a fan base. Before that they only had 79 episodes and four movies to build on. We have 29 episodes of a great epic story. Just because it is unfinished doesn’t make it any less compelling. An ever increasing fan base can spark a revival, if not now then in the future.

Participate in fan activities. I already covered discussing Jericho but there are other activities we can do together. Right now we have The Great Jericho Rewatch, The Fancast Marathon and the upcoming Jerichon. We, also have various chatrooms, some with special events. All these things help bond us together and forge new friendships.

Build each other up not tear each other down. When I came to the CBS boards I was a timid, shy person spending most of my time lurking. If it wasn’t for some encouraging words, a “good post” on those occasions that I did post, I would not be writing this. We are a large group and we all will not “see eye to eye” but we can “agree to disagree” and not let a disagreement escalate to an all out brawl. Nothing is sadder than to see a fan retreat to lurking because someone could not disagree civilly. We should be encouraging each other to state our opinions in a respectful manner and openly debate them civilly. We should not accept boorish behavior nor should we return in like kind but set the example for all to follow.

These are just a few things that we can do to build a bright future for Jericho. If we don’t grow and maintain this community than all our efforts to save Jericho will be for naught. Let not this community whither because we are too busy campaigning and we forget to be fans. Let’s build this community up to what it should be.

History Starts Now: TV Commercial

(Update: Fundraising goal has been met. No further donations are needed at this time.)


Attention all Jericho fans still committed to making our presence known! We have been presented with an incredible opportunity to have the entertainment industry hear us in a big way. It’s our chance to show our continued commitment to Jericho – AND demonstrate that while we love our show, we also love and honor our troops! How? This is where it gets exciting! What do you think about nearly 300 TV ads created by our own Rubber Poultry and airing at strategic times on strategic channels such as the Sci-Fi, History, Discovery, TNT, and ESPN channels (including the NBA playoffs)? This would be in full-out effort to kick our DVDs for the Troops campaign into high gear, as well as create and/or maintain awareness of Jericho fans’ efforts in and around the Hollywood industry area where a decision about the resurrection of Jericho would most likely originate.

Under a proposal presented to us from Time-Warner in LA we are looking at a 10-day scheduled run in zones around Hollywood, Orange County, and the East San Fernando Valley.

Stay tuned…..and start digging out all that loose change (and large denomination bills) in your sofas and under your car seats!!

GOAL: $6,500
We are at $3,250

Amount needed $3,250

ETA donation link. This will take you to the Jericho Rangers 4 Our Troops website. In the upper left hand corner is a button labeled TV Commercial Campaign, click on that and it'll take you to the Pay Pal account.
