It's finally been announced: The abbreviated second season of Jericho will return on Tuesday, February 12th at 10PM. Not the greatest timeslot in the world, but as things currently stand it will be up against The Bachelor, Cane and Law & Order: SVU. It could be worse... it could have been up against American Idol like it was last season. If that wasn't the dumbest programming decision ever, then I don't know.
There are a scant seven episodes that will make up season two, and I understand that the arc has been written in such a way as to give a satisfying conclusion to the fans if it isn't renewed.
