Cancellations
Despite talk of them being potentially resurrected at other networks, both NBC’s original “Law and Order” and CBS’ “Ghost Whisperer” will not be spared the axe.

Meanwhile there was speculation that ABC was looking into picking up ‘Ghost’ as it co-produces the drama, but the network has officially confirmed it will NOT be acquiring the show.
