Operation Phoenix Update (JEBS 6/20/09)

June 17, 2009

Hello Fellow Rangers:
The final Nielsen ratings for Sunday, June 14, 2009 was 1,900,000 (Congratulations Rangers!). We had set a goal to hit 2 million by June 14, 2009 and we just missed it. We have over 1,200,000 views on Youtube and we are now heading towards 36,000 posts on the UHD Board.

With Jericho's final airing on the CW behind us, we are looking to what is on the horizon for the next few months. Out front and Center is the Jericho Comic Book which is due to be launched in October 2009. Ratkeeper recently received responses from Devils Due that they are currently working on a date certain and will let us know. We will be working to lay out a promotion plan and will get it posted throughout the Fandom in the near future.

Breaking News from N2N2-Pat thanks for letting us know about this:
I Tweet Karim asking for news. His response:

Some exciting news to deliver regarding "jericho" comic book, but i can't deliver it yet. I know, I know...but it'll be good.

Another important development is that of an ARG that is playing out on Youtube with a UK tie in. Ratkeeper and I feel this most likely is tied to the movie by developing a larger global fan base via the ARG to prep for the release of the movie.

The five parts of the Operation Blackjack can be seen here:

(Editor's note: It has been revealed over the weekend that this ARG has no connections with Jericho and has been suspended by the creator.)

We will also planning an East Coast Ranger gathering in Baltimore the weekend of September 18th. (BeeBull says weather will be better) More on that to be announced.
