ABC not rescuing canceled "Ghost Whisperer"

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “Ghost Whisperer,” the Jennifer Love Hewitt supernatural drama that was surprisingly axed by CBS last week, will not cross over to ABC.

“After five wonderful seasons and over 100 episodes, we are disappointed to announce ‘Ghost Whisperer’ will not be returning for a sixth season,” executive producers Kim Moses and Ian Sander said in a statement Thursday.

ABC, whose studio sibling co-produced “Ghost Whisperer” with CBS, had expressed an interest in “Ghost Whisperer,” which consistently won its Friday-night time period.

Hewitt starred as a medium who can communicate with earthbound spirits and helps them “cross over” to the other side after their unfinished business is resolved.
