CBS Drops ‘Ghost Whisperer,’ ‘Christine,’ ‘Cold Case’ and More

May 18, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The plans for CBS’ Wednesday upfront were leaked today and veteran series "Ghost Whisperer," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Numb3rs" and "Cold Case" were all dropped, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Ghost" and "Christine" could be picked up by other networks, as ABC has expressed interest in both. In addition to those cancellations, "Miami Medical," "Accidentally On Purpose" and "Gary Unmarried" were also axed.

On the flip side, "Rules of Engagement" and "Medium," previously on the bubble, have been renewed. There will be more to come later, including the schedule.

  1. My mother was very sad to hear Ghost Whisperer and New Adventures had been canceled. She’ll be hoping for ABC to salvage them.

  2. Oh Man, I really love Ghost Whisperer and hope to it on ABC. Figures, just when you like something, they take it away. :O(

  3. ya no kidding i love ghost whisperer i hope someone picks it up.. i also love medium as well. i have watched both from 1st day they started..

  4. me hope ghost stays on

  5. Are you kidding me? Why is it when they get a good show on they cancel it? What a great show! They always leave the crap shows on. Come on!

  6. Am really sad to see Ghost whisper go.In my opinion i think that rules of Engagement should go before the Whisper does.I will be sadden

  7. just shows the idiots that run the networks,how stupid they are,always cancelling the highest rated shows

  8. hate ghost whisperer is leaving,always liked looking at jennifer love hewitt tits

  9. CBS should take a look and consider other shows that are not likely for people to watch. But in this case for Ghost Whisperer alot of people are watching the show. We have cable and we watch the show in another channel after it’s done on CBS.

  10. I hate that “Ghost Whisperer”is leaving!! It is about the only show on television that I can watch with my children with no fears of anything inappropriate going on. I hope ABC picks it up…how disappointing.

  11. You got to be kidding??? the best show ever Ghost Whispers and you want to cancel who’s the crazy one that decided that he should be fired!!!!!!!

  12. Even my friends in Indonesia and Love this show! Why are they gonna be so ignorant! This show is AWSOME!

  13. i agree ghost whisper should stay and something else go. also the other shows they are getting rid of are good ones.

  14. I cannot believe it!! Ghost Whisperer and Miami Medical both cancelled!! Of course I became hooked on both of those shows, and now they are gone. I think the same idiot that is running NBC is running CBS especially since they left “Rules of Engagement”. I really hope that ABC picks them up. Come on people what are you thinking?

  15. I listen to James Von Prag(sp?) say that Jennifer Love Hewitt is done and does not want to do another season….she’s over it.

  16. CBS is crazy. Once again they have great shows that adults like to watch and they are axing them. Who do they think watch TV. Adults silly people. Rules of Engagement is the worst show on CBS and you are keeping it over Christine, Gary & Ghost. You need to get rid of whoever made this decision and look at your ratings #’s again!

  17. If anyone listens to coast2coastAM with George Noorey(sp?). It was this week in which he was on it, May 17/18. He would like to continue the show but he said Jennifer has express clearly she does not want to continue, six season is wnough for her. She wants a new project.

  18. I cannot believe CBS cancelled “Ghost Whisperer”! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR HEADS?????? As far as Old Christine, this show was one of the funniest! I love Wanda Sykes. You better start listening to the people that watch these shows and not the stuped Neilsons!

  19. I am very very upset. I tape Ghost Whisperer each and every day and go back and delete ones I’ve seen already….. I will stop watching this network if it is cancelled.

  20. I LOVE the Ghost Whisperer; I hope another network grabs this series FAST. I don’t know what the heck is wrong with CBS; they’ve lost their minds! The Old Christine was a good show; it was one of the funny ones still left and there are too few 🙁

  21. These shows did suck. Just like most of the programs on today. Television needs a blood transfusion because the patient is filled with bad blood.
    OW

  22. I happen to be a Ghost Whisperer,Numbers,
    and Miami Medical fan. With these shows
    gone, it is three reasons not to watch
    CBS. Fox and some of the other channels
    have better programs then CBS & NBC now and I will be watching them.

  23. im very bummed to hear Ghost whisperer is on the list to be cancelled! my whole family and i watch the series as a family night and we all really enjoy it!! We are staying positive that ABC will pick it up!!! PLEASE ABC!!

  24. So many comments about Ghost Whisperer and none about Cold Case? I think Cold Case is a very interesting show and will be sorry to see it leave the air.

  25. I will COMPLETELY boycott CBS if they get rid of Ghost Whisperer! I LOVE that show!!! ABC would be SMART to pick it up!

  26. Keep Ghost Whisperer! I will never watch CBS if that show is cancelled! ABC is the smarter network!!

  27. Hate to hear that Ghost Whisperer will be dropped, hope it’s not true that Jennifer Love Hewitt is done and that another network will pick it up. Love to sit with my kids and a bowl of popcorn and watch together. No fear of anything inappropriate.

  28. This really bites! Ghost Whisperer and Cold Case are two of the most interesting programs ever aired. This decision is really disappointing!

  29. My boyfriend and i enjoy watching ghost whisper. we really enjoy the show, we love jennifer love hewitt she really puts everything into the role she plays hope they reconsider and have a change of heart about the show if not please ABC or NBC or one of the other networks pick up the show it will be sadly missed. please reconsider the cancellation.

  30. I cannot believe they are cancelling Ghost Whispers. That is such a great show. Hopefully ABC will be smart and pick them up.

  31. Deviant! She has hardly got any…you are an idiot…myopic and narrow-minded. If that’s the only reason you watch the show, you are a very stupid, insular person! Plus, you have a mouth like a sewer!

  32. Well !!! now that you are taking ghost whisper off this frees up my Friday nights that I normally stay home and watch tv from 7-10 at night but not now thank you

  33. Addicted to Ghost Whisperer!! Hope ABC picks it up. And if Gary Unmarried is canceled then send Jay Mohr back to Ghost Whisperer. Like him much better than Jamie!

  34. My comment is to Joe, way up at a 0750 posting.

  35. Oh, my gosh I can’t believe they are taking away Ghost Whisperer and Accidentially On Purposes. There aren’t many shows on tv that are of great quality and have well written scripts. Granted Ghost Whisperers is an acquired taste, but its a show of charater and mystery. I really enjoy the reruns on the WE channel and look forward to every Friday watching new episodes. I am just baffled about this and really don’t want to watch anything else CBS has to offer. How screwed up is this network!

  37. How could anyone take Ghost Whisperer off the air? Yea, they may have jumped the shark a bit, but the show is bettet than ever! To be able to see what will happen through Adens life, and have a play off series when he is grown would be great! PLEASE DO NOT DROP THIS SERIES! There is too much potential for future stories!
    Thanks,
    Loyal Fan

  38. Omg! I LOVE Ghost Whisperer. It’s such a really good show. I look forward to watching it every Friday Night

  39. They canceled all the shows I like 🙁 my husband and i love watching the new adventures of old christeen and i really loved accidently on purpose and ghost wisper. BOOO CBS BOOO

  40. COME ON! You must be kidding me. It’s like one of the best shows on TV!! I look forward to it every week and there is no reason to take it off. I love the entire cast.
    Please someone SAVE it please.
    Does CBS ever think about the public???

  41. This is just plain ridiculous, and bad “business”! I don’t watch Ghost Whisperer, however my Girlfriend does, what a shame to cancel it…… I do however watch Numbers AND Cold Case, and these are two of the BEST shows on TV period, especially on that Friday/Sunday lineup. I won’t say I can’t believe it, as nothing surprises me anymore…….. A couple of years ago you cancelled Stark, and you cancelled Moonlight- two GREAT shows victimized by the Writer’s strike. I gave you the benfit of the doubt then, but now……. CBS, I could put it in nicer terms, however I prefer to say you suck!

  42. I am with everyone else on Ghost Wisper but I also love cold case. Hope they change time slots and not cancel. Hard to compete with desperate housewives but still a great show

  43. One of the very few shows I really look forward to “Ghost Whisperer” and you are going to drop it!!!!!!! THAT SUCKS!!!

  44. i agree..what will probably happen is another half dozen of the brainless reality shows.

  45. I love Ghost Whisper and Miami Medical.
    BOO on CBS

  46. aaaahhhhhh! not ghostwhisper! that is like my everynight show with my kids. and we’re talking about twin boys 8, and my daughter 12!! they are totally going to be bumped out! Hope ABC picks it up!!

  50. PLEASE!!!! Save Ghost Whisperer!!!!!!

  51. Why would they keep medium over Ghost Whisperer?? Get rid of Old Christine instead of Rules of Engaement? They have that backwards. But leave it to TV “officials” to decide to axe the good shows. Sad…

  52. GHOST WHISPER, MIAMI MEDICAL AND COLD CASE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS I TAPE THEM EVERY WEEK. I AM REALLY UPSET THAT THEY ARE TAKING THESE OFF THERE CHANNEL

  61. I look forward to my friday night with Ghost Whisperer. I love that show, please tell me another network will pick it up!!!!!!!

  62. This is unacceptable!!! My Grandaughters and us watch Ghost Whisper every friday night. What idiot made that decision!!!

  63. OMG! Ghost Whisperer is my favorite ..ILOVE IT .and why are they cancelling it ..I just hope another network picks it up .How can you contact CBS ..they are making a big mistake ..because what ever they put in its place I will not watch .

  64. They are cancelling all of those shows not just Ghost Whisperer and Miami Medical.

  65. what!!!! is CBS crazy.

  66. What?????
    I love Ghost Whisperer…. Please ABC pick it up!!!!!

  67. I’m not a T.V fan, however Ghost Whisperer are one of the ones that I choose to watch over the mind numbing reality shows!!!! Seriously allow this type of programing to stay…………

  68. Goddamn CBS!!! I love “Ghost Whisperer”, plus i love looking at Jennifer Love Hewitt’s titts.

  69. Goddamn CBS!!! I love “Ghost Whisperer”, plus i love looking at Jennifer Love Hewitt’s titts.

  70. How could they even think of getting rid of Ghost Whisperer? I also watch Christine and Gary Unmaried but like one of the posts, I too have also watched every episode of Ghost Whisperer(and Medium) since it first aired. How bout getting rid of some of the brain draining bull sh*t reality tv? Now theres an idea!!!

  71. Oh yea, sweater puppies !

  72. We used to just love Ghost Whispers, it was part of our Friday routine…in fact, all of our friends were avid fans too, but we all agree that the last season has just plain sucked! Couldn’t stand Jamie Kennedy being shoved down our throats….! He is a total no-talent lousy actor, and not even good looking! We’ll watch the old re-runs because we love Jim and Melinda!

  73. I agree, but how about getting rid of ALL the so-called “reality” shows instead of just some of them! Ok, “Extreme Make-over” “What not to Wear” “Clean House” and “House Hunters” can stay!

  74. These ratings people have no clue what people like to watch…….I’ll just have to change networks to see Ghost.

  75. I like Ghost Whisper also but I still think that CBS was nuts to cancel a great show like “The Class”. The show was funny and it had great writing like “Big Bang Theroy” does. I was sad to see it only lasted a year. They take off the really great shows and put on some real crap in its place. Keep up the good work people and see why people are watching cable.

  76. My favorite show on CBS Ghost Whisperer is being cancelled. I hope they reconsider. This is such a wonderful show. I do not care what they put on I will not be watching CBS anymore!! There is too much crap on tv and I am sure that is what they plan to replace the show with. Sorry not interested in reality crap and watching people treat each other like dirt. If another channel picks up Ghost Whisperer I will definately be watching.

  77. Are you kidding? CBS is making a big mistake axing all those shows. They should think again. What could take the place of these shows? Nothing. Yeah you could see Ghost Whisperer on SciFi, but they are all reruns. Ghost Whisperer is great. Accidentally, Cold Case, Christine, etc. are all great shows. I hope that another channel picks them All up.

  79. Ghost Whisperer is my favorite show and I really hope that ABC picks it up.

  80. Ghost Whisperer is one of the best shows. It is alot better than all these stupid reality shows and Anima junk. It gave you something to believe in and it should go on. Television is getting worse with their series, not better. CBS of all stations should know better than to take a hit show off the air, what’s the matter, they don’t like good ratings.

  81. These executives are freakin moroons…they are probably so blitzed by the end of the week they do not know which end is up! “Let’s delete the only 2 other shows people watch on our network on Friday nights and see what happens”…..IDIOTS!! HULU here I come…….

  82. Don’tfret yourselves. ABC has a long history and excellent record of making popular series canceled by other networks even better.Jen is beuuutiful and a great Actress.So ABC—“What’re you waiting for,huh”? LOL.

  83. I am getting tired of the programs that we get to choose from. It seems I find shows that I like and then they do something stupid to mess them up like when they killed jim in Ghost Whisperer…if the actor is staying on the show why kill him off that was soooooooo stupid when you are going to have her marry him anyway and keep him pretty much stay the same face. I like Numbers and Ghost Whisperer and I am tired of watching all of the reality shows with people fighting with eachother the whole time. If I want to see people fight and complain and cry like babies I could go work in a highschool or most of us deal with that at work all day. I want to come home and relax and watch something I enjoy not get involved with a show for a few weeks like Miami Medical and hear for no reason they are going to get rid of it already. WHY PUT IT ON IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID

  84. First they cancel Without a Trace, now Ghost Whisperer, Numbers and Cold Case. I give up!

  85. I can’t believe you are cancelling Ghost Whisperer! There are so very few shows on the major networks that offer any sense of hope these days. Most of what you see are the “reality shows” that aren’t worth my time; and promote lying, cheating, and basically any negative trait that humans are capable of in order to “win”. I have watched all the Ghost Whisperer episodes and so do a number of my friends, if we can’t be home, we record the episode on our DVR’s. Ghost Whisperer is a refreshing, delightful show that promotes all the good someone can do in this world if we are willing to put ourselves out there for others! CBS needs to take a good look at their values and priorities!

  86. I was so disappointed when I heard about Ghost Whisperer. It was my only show that I really loved to get lost in. 🙁

  87. You can not cancel Ghost Whisperer. We are addicted to Ghost Whisper. It would be a trosous if you took it off air. For the sake of the people keep it on! KEEP IT ON FOREVER!!! we stay up tell 12:00 at ni9ght to just watch the show so if these cbs and abc people take this off the air we will night have ANYTHING ANYTHING to watch so who ever likes ghost whisper watch it ALL THE TIME and MAYBE MAYBE the re conster it. GHOST WHISPER RULES

  88. Perhaps, Wanda Sykes is considering other options, such as her own comedy show?

  89. I think CBS is making a BIG Mistake taking off there best Movies,,Ghost whispers,Numbers,Medium,Cold cases..I set my TV to record all these..Now I shall Have to find a new channel to watch since CBS is taking Most the good ones off,,:(

  90. I can’t believe CBS cancelling Cold Case. I am very upset. I hope another channel will air it.

  91. I’ve been that means to learn this and just by no means received a likelihood. It is an issue that Im rather thinking about, I just started reading and Im glad I did.
