While it may not be the much-hoped-for third season, the CW is bringing “Jericho” back to prime-time television.Â
This fall, the network farmed out its Sunday night programming to the Media Rights Capital group.Â The two series produced were non-starters for the CW, leading the network to yank the series and will now begin showing repeats of “Jericho” and libraries from the MGM library on Sunday evenings.
Episodes of “Jericho” will air on Sunday evenings at 7 p.m. EST starting this Sunday, November 30.
The network will also air repeats of “Everybody Hates Chris” and “The Drew Carey Show” in earlier time periods on Sunday.Â Movies from MGM’s library will air at 8 p.m. EST.
The CW decided to farm out its Sunday night programming last year to concentrate on building ratings on other nights.Â The building ratings for other nights part of the equation has worked while the Sunday night side of the equation has been less successful.Â The CW partnered with MRC for the evening’s programming.Â Now CW has cancelled the contract after the two series MRC produced failed to attract viewers on the competitive Sunday evenings.
CW has said the repeats of “Jericho” will air through at least the end of the season, meaning fans can relive the post-apocolyptic story again.Â
