    To quote from jms himself ...

    >JOE HELP.....LET US KNOW IF THESE RUMORS ARE TRUE ABOUT JEREMIAH GOING OFF
    >THE
    >AIR AFTER EPISODE SEVEN????

    This is the first I've heard of it. But there's a message floating around from Scott Rosenberg confirming it, that the 15 eps have been broken up in half, with 7 through November 7th, and the rest picking up early (I'm guessing January) 2004.

    I haven't been told this by anyone directly (hardly surprising), but my *guess* would be that they're moving them out of the holiday season (Thanksgiving through Christmas). TV viewership goes way down during late November through January 1, and cable goes down even more. So if I had to hazard a guess at their reasoning, they're probably acting to protect their investment, rather than air the show at a time when nobody is watching, which would kill the ratings and the show.

    From my own personal (only watching) experience, many shoes go into repeats/new-show-hiatus during the end of the year month(s) after sweeps. Jeremiah is not alone. Heck ... I'm still waiting for word on 'Dead Zone'!! Or did I miss some news?

      Just use common sense, for example: No spoilers in the subject line. Depending on the severity of the spoiler, it would be polite to include "spoiler:" in the subject line and/or a spoiler warning in body of the post. You can try using light colored text, however that seems to have mixed results. Other suggestions welcome.

          Thanks for the info, BL.

          NOTE: from my original post, change "many shoes" to "many shows"

          Dang typo demons!!

            Thanks for reposting JMS' comments but frankly, those are old and he was only speculating about what was happening at the time. I have since had many conversations with an exec producer of the show and have gotten more concerning information from them and others involved with the show. They seemed pretty surprised when Showtime announced the "season finale" at episode #7. So, I started an email campaign because there seemed to be a need to make them aware of the show's popularity and fanbase.

            I also emailed JMS about the whole thing early on and while he basically told me the same thing he said publically, he also didn't think there was any harm done by letting Showtime know how we felt about the show.

            Yes, shows go on hiatus all the time and come back later when the market is better for them but I really don't believe that was the case for Jeremiah. Showtime had been putting off the s2 premiere date all year and when they finally did air it, it was yanked from the schedule less than a month later. It just doesn't make sense to do that to a show that you support and are interested in having it be sucessful.

            Jeremiah was following a parallel path that Odyssey 5 took which was cancelled even though it was one of the higher rated shows on the network and they still haven't shown the last 5 episodes.

            Showtime were also the ones who let Stargate go after season 5 even though it was a highly rated show. It was picked up by the Sci Fi Channel for another two very successful seasons plus what looks like will be a spinoff soon too.

            We are just going by what Showtime has done in the past which have not appeared to be very good moves.

              Hi Doug and thanks for the clarification.

              I think your suggestions are good but I would suggest having spoiler space as well if you are going to talk about something important. Using light colored text might work too but a warning and spoiler space would be apprecitated.

              Trying it out now ...
              using light colored text to see how "hidden" it becomes...

              I think people here should be very careful about what they say about certain key episodes (CROSSING JORDAN and THINGS LEFT UNSAID come to mind) but especially any episodes that haven't aired here in the States yet.

              Too bad you don't have a "spoiler tag" here on your boards.

                Ok, last post for now ... just some news about when we might see the rest of season two on Showtime:

                According to Platinum Studios' Scott Rosenberg, Showtime will be airing another eight episodes of Jeremiah early next year. The network had originally planned to show all 16 episodes of the second season in '03 (see "Jeremiah Renewed"), but stopped after eight. "With other cablers turning to 8 episode seasons, Showtime seems to be following suit," Rosenberg said. "There was a huge fan campaign ignited by this, culminating in Showtime saying yes to the next eight." The DVD release of the first season is due early next year.
                The article has the number of episodes wrong as only 15 were commissioned for season two and Showtime stopped after episode #7. Stlil, the good news is that our campaign has been working but please still sending notes to encourage Showtime to announce an air date.

                    Yes, it is on the air in Canada but not in America which is the main market for this show. If it doesn't suceed here in the States there will be no more Jeremiah, period.

                    At least the Canadian channels are not being as dense as Showtime so I can still see the rest of the season even if I have to download the episodes. I see you are in Poland so you must have downloaded it off the 'net too.

                      Well, I have no other option - the chance for Jeremiah in any Polish TV stations are almost equal to 0.
