We got nervous for a second there. One of our favorite but admittedly totally stupid guilty pleasure shows, Ghost Whisperer, was cancelled by CBS last week, but ABC may be bringing it back from the dead.
Last week CBS cancelled Ghost Whisperer after five seasons on the air. Almost immediately, there was word that ABC might save the TV show. Now, word is spreading that the deal is done. Is it?In Ghost Whisperer, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has the ability to see and talk to people who’ve died. Regular castmembers over the past five seasons have included David Conrad, Camryn Manheim, Jay Mohr, Aisha Tyler, Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, and Kenneth Mitchell.
CBS cancelled the TV show because viewership has fallen quite a bit this season. Ordinarily, ABC wouldn’t have any interest in saving the TV show up but the network co-produces Ghost Whisperer and would share in the profits from another season of episodes going into syndication.
We’d like to thank ABC for hopefully continuing the show brought to us from psychic James Van Praagh (especially my wife!), and for keeping employed one of our favorite, if misunderstood comedic talents, Jamie Kennedy, and who plays Dr. Eli James. Kennedy is also Jennifer Love Hewitt’s real life boyfriend. Speaking of Kennedy, people should check out his very funny documentary called Heckler in which the comedian pokes fun at his own career, and which contains many candid interviews with interesting celebrities.
But I digress. Go ABC!
