Clay Aiken: The JERICHO Connection
Clay Aiken is taking credit for keeping the CBS series "Jericho" on the air. A report from "In Touch Weekly" claims that after blogging about how upset he was when CBS cancelled the apocalyptic drama the American Idol star claims he encouraged his fans to take action. "Within a week, the Claymates had organized a campaign among Jericho fans to send nuts to CBS," says Clay. "And it's back on the air. It just blows my mind."
But Jeff Braverman, the CEO of nutsonline.com – the web site that helped angry Jericho fans send 20 tons of peanuts to CBS in protest – got a bit salty when he heard Clay's claims. "We never heard from him!" He says. "[Radio personality] Shaun 'Omac' Daily in Las Vegas came up with the nuts idea.

Meanwhile, Jericho stars are happy the show is back. "I heard that Clay was a fan, but I never thought he'd rally his fan base," Skeet Ulrich tells In Touch. "I appreciate it!" Ashley Scott adds she's just glad Clay didn't watch the show that was competing against Jericho in the same time slot. "It's funny that Clay wasn't watching American Idol!" she says.
Skeet Ulrich says his mother sent him the Houston Chronicle article in which Clay boasted about saving Jericho. "If Clay wants to take credit, so be it. "Jericho is back," says Braverman, who helped organize the nuts campaign.
I guess he had to come up with something to get his name in the news since his career is stuck in neutral.
