20 Times Fans Actually Saved TV Shows From Cancellation
Many fans would argue that Jericho is an awesome series, but sadly, this wasn’t reflected in the show’s ratings. CBS canceled it after its first season, but fans weren’t willing to let go of it that quickly. They came up with the creative idea of sending actual tins and bags of nuts to the network, which was a reference to a line from the character Jake Green. Over 40,000 pounds of nuts were sent, and that was enough to convince CBS to change its mind.
Fans were rewarded with a second season, but it was canceled again after that, which fans didn’t take lightly. However, in 2009, Devil’s Due Publishing saved the day by announcing that the show’s storylines would continue as a comic book series, which is definitely better than nothing!
