Ghost Whisperer: CBS TV Show Cancelled, No Season Six?

Ghost Whisperer cancelledAfter five seasons on the air, CBS has killed a staple of the Friday night schedule. Ghost Whisperer won’t be back next fall on the Tiffany network. Not unless it can come back from the dead…

Ghost Whisperer tells the tale of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a young woman with the ability to see and talk to dead people. Regular castmembers over the past five seasons have included David Conrad, Camryn Manheim, Jay Mohr, Aisha Tyler, Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, and Kenneth Mitchell.

The TV show debuted in September 2005 and the season attracted an average of a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.2 million viewers. In seasons two and three, the demo rose to a 3.0 rating with 9.9 and 8.6 million viewers respectively. For season four, the ratings went up again, to a 3.7 rating and 10.6 million viewers.

Unfortunately this year, the ratings fell — a lot. The season kicked off with a 2.3 rating and 8.7 million viewers. Things went further downhill from there. Last month, they hit a series low with a 1.3 rating in the demo and 5.96 million viewers. Though Ghost Whisperer was once a hit show for the network, those times are clearly over.

To little surprise, CBS has decided to cancel Ghost Whisperer. The series finale is set to air this Friday, May 21st.

However, because ABC Studios co-produces the series (with CBS), there have been discussions that it could switch networks. Medium ran for years on NBC before being cancelled and picked up by CBS.

ABC’s entertainment president, Stephen McPherson, has said that he’d be interested in picking up Ghost Whisperer if the series became available. ABC scheduler Jeff Bader told Variety today that they’ve toyed with the idea. He said, “We talked a lot about it. It could make a good lead-in to Body of Proof.”

To keep costs down, ABC has been committed to running only one scripted series on Friday nights but the execs will supposedly look at the possibility of picking up Ghost Whisperer in the next few days.

What do you think? Should ABC pick up Ghost Whisperer for season six or should it stay cancelled?

Ghost Whisperer has taught me a lot as well made me feel more comfortable with life in many ways. It has helped me and I know many others cope with loss and nightmares. The story and the actor’s that were apart of all the seasons made it possible. I would like to see Ghost Whisperer continue with the same great people who have made it come to life for many more seasons than 10. Seeing season 6 would be wonderful, but we all wouldn’t be happy with just that. This story connects us all and relates to us all, no matter religion or race. This story speaks that we are alive even when we die and in the end love is all that matters. Please continue.
Thank you.

It was the most interesting and vividly amazing show aired I’ve seen in years. It’d be a shame to watch it die down completely. Jennifer is an amazing actress and now with her son involved in her life, I have to know what happens next!! X3
