'Ghost Whisperer' dead and buried

Despite rumors last week that ABC may be picking up CBS' canceled show Ghost Whisperer, it is simply not to be.

Reuters is reporting the long-running show starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as medium Melinda Gordon won't be "crossing over" to the rival network after the surprise cancellation.

Executive producers Kim Moses and Ian Sander said in a statement that, "after five wonderful seasons and over 100 episodes, we are disappointed to announce Ghost Whisperer will not be returning for a sixth season."

There's probably a good pun to be made here about the show becoming a specter, but we don't care enough are too choked up to try.
