Ghost Whisperer Finale: A Dark Force Follows Melinda

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisperer

It's a cold, drizzly night on the Universal Studios backlot, where the town square is playing host to all the staples that make up CBS' Ghost Whisperer (Fridays at 8 pm/ET). A grieving but skeptical loved one? Check, in the person of actor Julian Sands (24). A ghost with an important message? Yep, that'd be Vivian Wu, as Sands' wife. A sense of foreboding and impending evil? The gloomy L.A. night and fog machines have seen to that. Cleavage? Present and accounted for in the form of star Jennifer Love Hewitt. Her character, Melinda Gordon, has proven that communing with the spirits is best done by a young woman with a pure he read more

Galactica's Jamie Bamber Visits a Heavenly Ghost

Jamie Bamber with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisperer

Normally he's seen as the rugged and commanding Lee "Apollo" Adama on Battlestar Galactica, but Jamie Bamber is taking a brief break from the skies for a guest-starring role on tonight's new Ghost Whisperer (8 pm/ET on CBS). was even more excited to discover that the intergalactic star, who speaks with a dreamy British accent in real life, would be playing not one but two roles on the Jennifer Love Hewitt series. The sweet Bamber was excited to talk about his special appearance, as well as give a little look at the rest of the season of Battlestar. How did this role on Ghost Whisperer come about? Bamber: I just moved down to L read more

Carson Daly Celebrates Five Years of Last Calls

Carson Daly

After achieving teen-idol status as the iconic VJ of MTV's Total Request Live, Carson Daly replaced afternoons with late nights in 2002 as host of Last Call with Carson Daly (1:35 am/ET, on NBC). We spoke with the 33-year-old Daly, whose show celebrates five years on the air this week. TV Guide: Very few talk shows last this long. What's your secret?Daly: It's amazing to look back. In the beginning, people [said], "You're buried in the middle of the night. No one's ever going to watch." And that ended up being the secret, I think. It was a place for me to learn this whole new craft. Conan [O'Brien] gave me great advice: "Have fun and screw up a lot. You might not always have this arena to find your voice." I've been really lucky the network has read more

February 9, 2007: We've Got Spirits, Yes We Do!

Applause to Ghost Whisperer for a wicked-cool Grammy Awards tie-in with Mary J. Blige as a guest star. She did a great job acting, and didn't seem at all to be "big music star playing actor," which often happens when pop stars get cast in TV shows and movies. It was actually her performance this evening that made me cry when her character realized her little brother was in the light. I also thought it was clever that we wound up hearing one of her songs through the cheerleading competition, rather than through an obligatory forced concert at the end of the show. Very clever and smooth Grammy Awards cross-promotion for CBS.Melinda was an adorable little freak in high school, wasn't she? She looked like a cute manga character, which I wouldn't exactly consider "nerdy," even by today's standards. But I s'pose to cheerleaders and the popular types, she would seem a bit different and be treated like a freak. Actually, her character in high school reminded me of the role that J. Love play... read more

January 5, 2007: My Ghost Whisperer Is Back!

Ahhhh, yes. Red eyes and a tear-streaked face feels so good after meandering through a couple of consecutive "dry" Ghost Whisperer eps over the holidays. I can't help it. I like to cry during this show, because it's quite cathartic. Whenever I watch an episode that doesn't make me cry even a little, I feel rooked. But I'm a classic romantic. A certified sap. And I make no apologies for being a horror nerd that also enjoys a little tenderness in my shows here and there. With Ghost Whisperer, I get just enough dark and creepy with just enough tears shed *to keep me in touch with my inner sentimentalist. *I draw the line with my music collection. Not a single Celine Dion or Air Supply CD in the bunch, I swear. Would the soundtrack to Pretty in Pink be considered a sappy CD to own? A Ghost Whisperer's Best Friend"OK, Bob, you lead." Tsk, tsk, Miz Gordon. The Dog Whisperer could teach you a thing or two about "calm, assertive energy!" Well, you've never claimed to be a dog whisperer (at ... read more

November 10, 2006: I'm Singin' in the Rain

Living with an addiction to shows like Lost, Desperate Housewives and Battlestar Galactica can turn a TV fan into a nervous wreck these days, especially during November sweeps. These shows have been putting the "hang" in cliff-hanger lately, so I didn't really watch tonight's Ghost Whisperer in a relaxed, "Friday night TV" sort of fashion. I also happen to know that this Ghost Whisperer fan wasn't the only one on edge from this week's "a fire will tear them apart" promo. I feel silly admitting this, but I thought about all of you as the hour unfolded tonight. You have given me great comfort, as I've learned over the past couple of weeks that: 1) I'm not the only one who cries every week when I watch this show, 2) I'm not the only one who loves Jim and Melinda together, and 3) I'm also not the only one who would be about as heartbroken as Melinda if Jim ever left us.All together now, let us pause for a moment and take a nationwide Ghost Whisperer-community collective sigh of relief: ... read more

November 3, 2006: Don't You Forget About Me

The DeepTonight's episode made me cry. I found the themes particularly sensitive, so this week's ghost story struck some chords with this viewer.The "sins of the father" impacting a family like a generational curse is particularly profound and a topic that can never be explored too deeply or conveyed too urgently. The bond between Mama Ghost and Lanie also came as a surprise: they both found the courage to "leave him." Studies on abusive relationships over the years have proven that leaving isn't as easy as one would think, but it can be done. It must be done. I love that this episode showed that it can be done. Pretty deep stuff for spooky television. The CreepsSpeaking of spooky television, should I take a poll to see how many of us find dolls thoroughly creeptastic? OK, all those who feel permanently scarred by every creepy doll ever flashed on a screen, raise your hand. "Me!" Had I been in Lanie's haunted shoes, I would have preferred a baby blanket as a token of Mama Ghost's lo... read more

Will Ghost Whisperer bring ...

Question: Will Ghost Whisperer bring back Aisha Tyler to the show next season? The producer did not answer the question in a direct manner in the TV Guide interview. Answer: If they're being coy, maybe they don't want you to know for sure. Seems to me that you might see her as a ghost again, all things considered (this is a show about a ghost whisperer, after all). But as Michael Ausiello has reported, they are seeking a new confidante for Jennifer Love Hewitt, so it sounds like if Aisha Tyler is back at all, it probably won't be for long. Besides, isn't it better to let sleeping friends lie? ... read more

What's the latest on Aisha ...
