It looks like it may just be true. I've been listening to the shaunomacradio shows (when I can get a connection,) and he's been having different guests nearly every night. They're all saying that what we are doing to bring the show back is working. Last night, Sprague Grayden was the guest, and she got a text message during the show from John Turteltaub that it was okay to divulge a bit of information. So far, Shaun has had Michael Gaston/Mayor Gray Anderson, Brad Beyer/Stanley, John Steinberg, Carol Barbee, Richard Speight/Deputy Bill, and Sprague Grayden/Heather on his radio blogspot radio shows. They are all very encouraging.
Since the rumor broke today, he said he can't have the guests on the show for a while. It's to hot right now. The actors are being asked to renegotiate contracts, and a new deal has to be made for a soundstage. Swingtown had taken over the soundstage that Jericho was using. The only disturbing things I have heard is that there may be cast reductions, and that Carol Barbee is now obligated to take the role of showrunner for Swingtown. She would remain involved with Jericho as a consultant.

Here's what Variety (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117966329.html?categoryid=14&cs=1)has to say.

does CBS have a press release site like abcmedianet.com?

No, they don't. It has been very difficult to find press releases about Jericho. I've only had luck by following thefutoncritic.com. I don't think that will be a problem this time. It's kind of the top story in entertainment news today.
This has been kind of an uphill battle, and we've had small victories along the way. For the most part broadcast media has been reluctant to report what was happening. CNN cited that it was CBS' problem and they weren't going to touch it, though there was an online blog on their site about it. The New York times carried a couple of articles on the rebellion though. The LA Times was the first of the print media to really give it some attention, and that story was syndicated. Several well known bloggers have been following it closely, including Michelle Malkin. Ausiello was one of the first in mainstream online media to give it any attention. The explosion in coverage overnight has been wild. It's everywhere. I think the increase in traffic broke nutsonline.com, bless Jeffrey Braverman's heart.
ETA: I hope you were able to order your nuts last night. :wink3:
