Ghost Whisperer: Is Tonight’s the Last Episode? Maybe Not…

Ghost Whisperer canceledIt was a little bit of a surprise that Ghost Whisperer was cancelled by CBS earlier this week. While the show’s ratings have dropped significantly this season, many reported that the TV show was on track for season six. Well, CBS may have cancelled it but the TV show could still continue on ABC.

Ghost Whisperer follows Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a young woman who has the ability to see, talk to, and help the dead. Series regulars have included David Conrad, Camryn Manheim, Jay Mohr, Aisha Tyler, Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, and Kenneth Mitchell.

With the current ratings, Ghost Whisperer wouldn’t ordinarily be of interest to ABC. However, the network co-owns the show with CBS and actually handles the production in-house. They actually developed the series before CBS picked it up back in 2005. If the price is right, ABC would stand to make more money from season six episodes once they hit syndication.

If Ghost Whisperer moves to ABC, should it air on Friday nights?

According to Deadline, negotiations for Ghost Whisperer possibly moving to ABC started on Tuesday afternoon and are still in motion. Word is that they are going well though there are a number of points to work out.

It’s positive that the showrunner for next season is already in place and producers have signed on. That means that the show is ready to go back into production. The Ghost Whisperer writing staff have all been asked not to take other jobs until a final decision is made.

For now, people are being cautiously optimistic. Deals like this have fallen apart at the last minute before but things are reportedly looking good. We’ll obviously keep you posted.

What do you think? Will a deal be made so that Ghost Whisperer can continue for year six on ABC? If that were to happen, when would you like to see it air — on Friday nights or in another spot?

Talent should be recognized and Ghost Whisperer puts itself up high. This program has made me cry so intensely. The true meaning of LOVE was played by Melinda and her husband. The whole crew knows how to play their roles.

Please don’t take Ghost Whisper off. I watch all of the reruns on ION and now they are gone. I HATE Criminal Minds it is such a Dark show and gives me nightmares. I am so so so tired of Without a Trace. Please bring Ghost Whisper back.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ghost Whisperer. I have recorded all of the shows and look forward to watching them when I have a day off. I hate that it was cancelled. It is one of only a couple of shows I watch on TV. I wish they would start production again. It is definately a great show. I really like the relationship Melinda and Jim have, it’s so nice to see them happy and in a great relationship.

It really does not matter to me when or what time they air it. I just hope they make more and I’ll find some way to watch it. It’s a really great show, I actually just started really getting into it the past couple weeks (watching on ion tv). I’m really surprised to hear they cancled it. Hope they wise up.

I LOVE Ghost Whisperer! I would like to see it continue with many more seasons to come. I have watched this show since it first started. The main actors all seem to work very well together. I’m addicted this show. I would hate not seeing it aired. Please bring the whole cast back for us to enjoy many more seasons to come.
