Ghost Whisperer: Has ABC Saved the Jennifer Love Hewitt Series?

Ghost WhispererLast 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.

While ABC is still supposedly interested in picking up the show, it hasn’t happened yet. Some websites are saying that it has been picked up, seemingly due to some telephone game-like reporting.

TV show supportKennedy, Hewitt’s boyfriend and co-star, was asked about the possibility of ABC picking up the series. He said, “They are talking about it, so that’s cool. We haven’t exactly gone into the light, we haven’t crossed over, but we’ve got some life.” The headline on WENN’s brief story reads, ABC Chiefs Giving Ghost Whisperer a Lifeline.

Some sites, including Perez Hilton, apparently have misinterpreted “lifeline” in the headline to mean that ABC has already agreed to pick up the show. While ABC may bring Ghost Whisperer back for season six, they haven’t agreed to do it just yet.

What do you think? Will ABC save Ghost Whisperer or is it just wishful thinking?

Bring back Ghost Whisper. And I totally agree about them killing Jim off. I’m sure a lot of people stopped watching when they did that storyline. But I love the show and I stayed tuned even though that was a stupid move.

I love to watch ghost whisperer when I wasnt home i recorded it .


Tom September 20, 2010 at 2:42 pm

I have all 4 seasons of this show. I have not missed it EVER. They are talking about poor ratings? Did Nielsen ratings people go out to lunch and not come back? There was one season whey the killed Jim off. That was stupid. When are the people at the “top” going to come back from playing “golf” and attend to what people want on tv?

I lost my family. the show woke me up. you would be a ass not see that people need this.


Sherri Burrows September 19, 2010 at 3:58 pm

Ghost Whisperer was one of my favorite shows. Just don’t do anything stupid like killing off Jim (again). Whoever thought up that story line should have been fired. it’s probably the reason why viewership dropped so badly. That was an idiotic move.


Carolyn Carroll September 19, 2010 at 10:04 am

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE….CONTINUE Ghost Whisperer….It is the one show I look forward to watch, and will watch more then once….It is a great show with warmth, family, love and hope….PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE reconcider…
