CBS Cancels Ghost Whisperer:

CBS is going to have some open slots next season after all.

In an year when some insiders speculated that CBS would only lose a couple shows, the network just canceled four dramas (including three veterans) and two comedies.


Crime procedurals “Cold Case,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Numbers” will not be renewed for next season. Jerry Bruckheimer’ s drama “Miami Medical” is likewise canceled, as is fellow freshman “Accidentally on Purpose,” which mainly aired in the network’s Monday night comedy block. Veteran Wednesday night comedies “New Adventures of Old Christine” and “Gary Unmarried” are also cancelled.

Several of these titles could have easily returned and, indeed, were expected to return. The harsh verdicts will signal to ad buyers that TV’s “most-watched network” is not being complacent and that executives have faith in their new shows, though will doubtless disappoint some fans.

Also, the network picked up “Medium” and “Rules of Engagement” for next season, as expected.

With the CBS’ upfront on Wednesday, the network suddenly has launched into a flurry of bubble show decision making.

The most surprising outcome here is canceling “Ghost Whisperer,” which many insiders expected to return and consistently won its Friday night time period.

Another big surprise: “Old Christine,” which has been a stable, if modest performer on the network’s Wednesday night lineup. Also, ABC has consistently expressed interest in picking up the comedy should CBS drop it.

Also, “Cold Case.” CBS was on the fence on this seven-year-old drama for months. On Sunday nights, “Case” ratings were admirably stable, if fairly modest.

“Miami” nosedived on Fridays at 10 p.m., then showed some signs of improvement in recent weeks once it was offered a lead-in from original episodes of “Medium.” Last Friday, the momentum seemed to stall, with the drama backsliding once again to a 1.2 rating.

“Accidentally” may end up with the highest average rating among any canceled show this season. As part of CBS’ comedy block, the show posted a number that would have been perfectly acceptable in most time periods. But once CBS sample the show on less protected Wednesday nights, its ratings fell sharply, showing the network its Monday audience was mainly built on momentum.

Ever since “Numbers” saw its episode count reduced, insiders have expected the show to get axed.

CBS has canceled its program “The Ghost Whisperer” and rumor now has it that ABC will pick up the show – which could mean producing more episodes or strictly showing the series in syndication. It also turns out that ABC developed “The Ghost Whisperer” before selling it to CBS – so technically ABC already owns half of the show, so it wouldn’t be a stretch for it to be shown on the network. What do you think about this?


Jennifer Love Hewitt on ‘Ghost Whisperer”s Last Episode

Melinda’s (Jennifer Love Hewitt) investigation of a poltergeist in the hospital leads to a showdown with supernatural forces terrorizing her and her son on tonight’s “Ghost Whisperer.”

“We have lots of strange children marching around in scary masks, which is so creepy,” Jennifer tells ET. “It’s like, ‘Why do we always have to make children creepy?’ I’m constantly asking the producers. I’m like, ”Can’t we just have a child who’s not creepy, because it freaks me out. It gives me nightmares and I don’t like it.'”

There actually is a non-creepy kid on “Ghost Whisperer,” and that is her son Aiden (Connor Gibbs).

“We find out that he has to come to Melinda’s aid and really saves her life in the season finale,” Jennifer says. “The dark side gets extremely powerful very quickly and he’s sort of her only heroic key. So my son gets to kind of be a superhero for the episode, which is very cool.”

The “Ghost Whisperer” season finale — possibly the series finale — airs tonight at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Should ABC Save ‘Ghost Whisperer’ and ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine’?

Ghost WhispererEven though CBS canceled both ‘Ghost Whisperer’ and ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine’ earlier this week, there’s been lots of talk that ABC might save both shows from the dustbin of history. The most recent rumors (as reported by Deadline and Entertainment Weekly) suggest that ABC still wants ‘Ghost Whisperer’ but not ‘Christine.’

But viewers may well ask: Does either show deserve to be saved?

CBS canceled the two shows, which had both run for five years, citing the usual reasons of low ratings (as CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler explained to E!) and increased expenses (actors tend to demand more money the longer a show stays on the air). ABC had long been interested in picking up either show if CBS should drop it, much the way ABC, CBS and TNT picked up ‘Scrubs,’ ‘Medium’ and ‘Southland,’ respectively, after NBC orphaned them.

The news that ‘Ghost Whisperer’ still has a shot at survival, while ‘Christine’ doesn’t, is curious. ABC’s fall slate, unveiled this week, is already full of hour-long dramas, including one, Dana Delany’s Friday-night procedural ‘Body of Proof,’ that seems to play to the same strengths as Jennifer Love Hewitt’s longtime Friday night staple (minus the supernatural element). Still, ABC Productions is a co-producer of the ‘Ghost Whisperer,’ so some of the expense of the transfer and a fraction of any potential syndication revenue will go back into the parent company’s pocket.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in 'The New Adventures of   Old Christine'That wouldn’t be the case with Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ ‘Christine,’ even though, as a long-running half-hour comedy, it would be much easier to syndicate. Also, ABC’s new fall slate includes a couple new ‘Christine’-like comedies: ‘Happy Endings’ (about a couple that splits up but remains in each other’s lives) and ‘Better Together’ (about two women and their very different romantic relationships). Not a lot of room for a third such show, especially given the network’s popular Wednesday comedy block — which contains sophomore series ‘Cougar Town,’ another ‘Christine’-like show.

Even if ABC could save both CBS castoffs, however, should they? Sometimes, a canceled show still has a lot of potential creative life left (as was the case with ‘Southland,’ which NBC let go after just one season). Often, however, the canceled show has run out of juice before it finds a new home, as was the case with ‘Scrubs.’

Does anyone think that, after five years, ‘Ghost Whisperer’ or ‘Old Christine’ still had a lot of new stories left to tell? If you do, let us know below. And if you think it’s time to let them rest in peace, let us know that, too.

    I believe that Ghost Whisperer should continue! Season 3 brought out the mystery behind the underground city and you can’t really leave it unfinished. finish that story line, and who is Gabriel really? Was he Melinda’s half brother by her step dads side or was he the son of Melinda’s biological father? Plus many other stories should come out…! So please keep the show on the air…! It gave me hope for a better future and not only that but it gave me the strength to get through many deaths in my life! Please keep Ghost Whisperer alive!

    I am so upset that it is not coming back. I have purchased all 5 seasons it is the only show I can honestly say I have done that with, I love this show someone just has to bring it back. I have seen too many sites where a lot of people actually want this show still to air. I think you could go along way with the show the boy still has a lot of growing to do and he seems to be much more powerful than his mom, think off all the situations he could get into.

    Ghost whisperer was the best show CBS had! If ghost whisperer doesn’t come back, I have no reason to watch television at all anymore! I was so surprised when I heard they cancelled it because there are so many other things they could do with this show! I really hope my favourite show has more seasons, don’t let Ghost Whisperer end!!!

    I really love this show it would be a real crime to leave all it’s followers with no more episodes, I can’t understand why they wouldn’t make anymore series of something which is so popular to it’s fans. So please can we have more Ghost Whisperer as it gives me a good feeling whenever I watch it.

  25. Ghost Whisperer still has many stories left to tell. Profesor Rick Pain was supposed to come back,I would love to see what else Aiden Melinda’s son can do with his powers and would also love to see Eli James work with Rick Pain on Ghosts with Melinda also. Plus Jim Melindas Husband would need to come clean with his paramedic friend about what happened to him.Please this show has to come back for Season 6!!!!!!
