You're on crack. Jericho was awesome. What "far better" shows are in danger of being canceled? There is next to nothing good on TV anymore.

Everyone has their opinion but I don't really see where the quality was in Jericho. The pilot was solid but the rest of the show never lived up to it. It had an interesting concept but focused too much on the small town drama to cater to its network audience. The cast wasn't particularly good either with the wooden Skeet Ulrich as a lead. They can't really do Jericho on a TV budget either without limiting the scope, it should have always been a miniseries production. As for shows to save, how about Awake just off the top of my head? The only decent procedural I've seen in ages, too smart for the room unfortunately. Every year we get several promising shows that fail to find an audience without needing to go back to middling network dramas.

If you can't find anything good to watch on TV then you're not even trying - Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Luther, Community, Person of Interest, Sherlock (BBC), Grimm, The Big C and so on. I'm sure others can add more.

I don't really watch TV. Occasionally, I'll watch OnDemand with a friend. Some good ones I've discovered are: Shark Tank, American Restoration, Car Warriors, My Ride Rules, Tanked, Dream Rides, Workaholics.

Notice, none of these are even character shows (with the exception of Workaholics), because I think everything like that on TV is terrible now. I'd sooner watch old shows I have on my computer that I've seen a thousand times over all that overrated bullshit on TV.
