An interview is presented with Carol Barbee, executive producer of the television program "Jericho." Barbee expresses gratitude to the program's fans, who campaigned to have it renewed after it was originally canceled by the CBS network. Barbee notes that as the most successful network, programs in their first season such as "Jericho" face longer odds of renewal. She feels the program's use of the Internet as a marketing tool will become an industry standard.
