Unless co-producer ABC decides to bring it back from the dead, Ghost Whisperer has been cancelled by CBS. Which is unfortunate, because CBS brought Medium back from cancellation (by NBC) to be a wingman for Ghost Whisperer, and now Medium has been renewed and GW hasn't. Poor Jennifer Love Hewitt, and... whoever else is still on that show. Is Jaime Kennedy still on? So it's him, Camryn Manheim, the hunky husband and whatever ragamuffin plays her son? Hope Jay Mohr wasn't hoping to get his old job back now that they've cancelled Gary Unmarried, because tonight's episode, number 107, is the last.
It's Halloween and CBS is going all out. Medium has Elvira guest starring. But first... (this is Julie Chen's home network after all!) Ghost Whisperer meets the Headless Horseman. Yup. He's in ghost form or whatever, but still, headless horseman in this Sleepy Hollow themed episode.
I broke up with this show a few months ago after they killed off my sweet Jim, despite them saying they were going to find a way to keep him around. Well, keep him around they have -- he's apparently some sort of spirit living in another man's body, but sometimes he looks like Jim and sometimes he looks like the other guy, and even though he has Jim's spirit or whatever, he doesn't have his memories? So basically it seems like Melinda's moved on a to a new man who has some stuff in common with Jim, and sometimes she thinks he looks like Jim, but he's really not anything at all like Jim? I just can't even bring myself to watch to see if that is what is really happening, but with what I've pieced together, that seems to be the gross and annoying gist of it.
If you have been unable to quit this show -- I still watch a lot of crap that I should have given up on (Grey's Anatomy, Degrassi, and Ugly Betty) in the vain hope that they will return to the show that I once remembered -- I understand. Anyway, if you are still following it, tonight's the night that Melinda tells not-Jim that she can see and talk to dead people. Chances are, this is not going to go well. I might tune in just to see if this show is as ridiculous as it sounds like it has become. So disappointing. Remember when all anyone talked about when they referenced this show was Jennifer Love Hewitt's cleavage? Could we find a happy medium please? Oh wait, happy Medium... yeah, I'd rather be watching that similarly themed show instead... and that's saying a lot because I really don't like some of her annoying kids.
If you are looking for something else to watch (and I pretty much hope that you are) check out our week in preview. There are alternatives. I swear.
