Armageddon has finally arrived for Jericho, the apocalyptic series that CBS had returned to its schedule following an outcry by vocal fans over its cancellation. The network said that it will air the series' finale on Tuesday. In a statement, CBS said, "Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program; we simply wish there were more." The network thanked "an engaged and spirited fan base" that kept the program on the air despite continued low ratings. "We listened to our viewers, gave the series an opportunity to grow, and the producers put a great story on the screen," the statement said.
