When Ghost Whisperer started in 2005, not everybody gave it much of a chance: A show about ghosts anchored by Jennifer Love Hewitt, eight years after I Know What You Did Last Summer, seemed like a gamble. Hewitt is a famous beauty, but (Supernatural aside) guys aren't supposed to watch ghost shows--could she really bring in the numbers?
Turns out she can, backed up by inventive writing and production and an impressive cast including David Conrad and well-known names like Jaime Kennedy and Camryn Manheim. Even on Friday night, the killing field for dozens of sci-fi shows from the original Star Trek on down, a night that Syfy has managed to make any kind of television destination only through relentless diligence and the rise of DVR technology, Ghost Whisperer has been pulling in steady, solid numbers for CBS.
On Friday, March 5, Ghost Whisperer will air its 100th episode, and the occasion was marked by having Hewitt, one of the show's executive producers and a Saturn Award winner for Best Actress, return to the director's chair. In a genre where quality sometimes gets short shrift and shows can be canceled after only 9 days, it's always fantastic to see a series build a fan base and survive for the long haul. Congratulations to the creators, writers, cast, and crew of Ghost Whisperer.
