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...
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? ...
Question: What's the latest on Aisha Tyler staying/leaving Ghost Whisperer?
Answer: The latest is it's not looking good. Producers are bringing in a new confidante for Jennifer Love Hewitt, and word has it The Practice's Camryn Manheim has the inside track.
Anna Faris, Scary Movie 4
Believe it or not, Anna Faris likes it when her lovable but clueless Cindy Campbell, who returns in Scary Movie 4 (now in theaters), takes a hit or two as she saves the world. "I'm always pretty game for that," says the actress. "Cindy's so sweet and innocent, which gets a little annoying, [so] it's fun to take me down every now and then."
Faris gets her wish in one scene in the latest sequel, when an airplane cart slams into Cindy's face. "It looks like it could have been [my] stunt double, which was frustrating because it was me," she reveals. On the flip side, Faris thinks moviegoers will see that it's definitely her "twin" taking hits from a Mike Tyson look-alike in the spoof of a boxing film. "[We] had this 10-minute, very choreographed sequ
Lacey Chabert, Hello Sister, Goodbye Life!
Oh, how Party of Five's sweet Claudia has grown up. In the nearly six years since the sibling sudser aired its swan song, Lacey Chabert has gotten wild with the Thornberrys, at one point found herself Lost in Space, and then fell in with some Mean Girls. This Sunday at 7 pm/ET, Chabert stars in ABC Family's Hello Sister, Goodbye Life!, a TV-movie about a snarky coed forced to watch over her 7-year-old half sister — with barely an assist from mom Wendie Malick — when tragedy strikes.

My Network (you know, the network made up of all the WB and UPN affiliates left out in the cold by those networks' merger) has found its "face"... you know, its Jennifer Love Hewitt, its Lauren Graham, its Teri Hatcher — and she's... Bo Derek. No kidding, the onetime 10 has been chosen to play the feisty fashionista at the center of its nightly telenovela, Secret Obsessions. Of course, if My Network were my network, the part would've gone to Apollonia.
He still connects with the dead, but now John Edward is getting up close and personal with the living. On his just-debuted documentary-style WE series, John Edward Cross Country (Fridays at 10 pm/ET), the famed psychic is conducting public séances — just as he did on Crossing Over — only this time he'll go home with the people who get readings.
TV Guide: Clearly this new format is a cooler experience for the "chosen," but what's in it for you? John Edward: It's grounding me. I've always done my readings and split, but Cross Country is forcing me into a deeper realization of what I do. I follow up on the people, hear their personal stories, and learn how the reading affected their lives and changed their views on spirituality. There's a lot of emotion and healing. I've never had this kind of intimacy in my work.
TV Guide: Crossing Over started six years ago on Sci Fi, home of the weir
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisperer
Ghost Whisperer executive producer John Gray promises "a big surprise ending" to the just-renewed CBS series' first season, setting the stage for a sophomore year with "darker elements." "We're not going to mess with our formula too much," he tells Sci Fi Wire. "At the same time, we don't want it to get stale." Citing as examples the mysterious entities he calls Laughing Man and Wide Brim Hat Man, Gray says, "We're going to be giving some explanation for their presence." What, they're not just ogling Jennifer Love Hewitt like the rest of us?
Question: I'm new here and I like Smurfs, so be gentle: Any information on Ghost Whisperer?
Answer: Hey, there's no shame in liking Ghost Whisperer. The shame would be in watching it live every Friday night instead of FauxVoing it and going out. That would be really embarrassing. In any event, there's tons happening in the April 7 episode, beginning with the arrival of Duane Martin (All of Us) as a love interest for Aisha Tyler's Andrea. He plays a high-school teacher who dabbles in spoken-word poetry. Also, Jennifer Love Hewitt's TV mom, Anne Archer, returns when Melinda takes a spill and winds up in a coma. When she comes to, she discovers that she can no longer see dead people and fears that she has lost the gift forever.
