The US drama has been pulled from the schedule this Friday, only two weeks after it was returned.
Meanwhile in the US the show has been axed entirely, despite considerable fan anger over the treatment of the show.
In Australia, TEN made a big deal about the simultaneous screening of the series. It was the first time a new US drama had a concurrent US / Australian debut. When I asked TEN’s Melbourne programmer Peter Andrews last year about any inherent problems should the show falter in the US, he was mindful of the risks.
“If the series doesn’t work in the US, our attitude is there’s not a lot to lose. We can still try and make an event of it ourselves. We would still have the ability to access some of the episodes that didn’t go to air in the US. Obviously we’d rather put a positive spin on it, but we don’t really see we’ve got a lot to lose. If it doesn’t run its full course in the US then that was always going to be the case with the series anyway.” he said.
TEN will replace Jericho this week with a Movie: Mean Girls.
No word if TEN will reschedule the unaired eps.
