Oh, yay. More craptastic TV on the way
TLC has renewed its hit series LONG ISLAND MEDIUM for a third season.
The network has ordered 16 half-hour episodes for season three, set to premiere September 2012.
To-date, season two is averaging 1.9M P2+ viewers.
With a waiting list of over two years, Theresa Caputo has turned numerous skeptics into believers as she helps countless individuals connect with their loved ones on the other side.

I’ll make no bones about how much I dislike this show. It’s silly, shallow and presents a pathetic sense of “reality” to people. Why is it renewed? It is ragingly popular in terms of cable TV ratings much like the equally craptastic Finding Bigfoot program.
See this piece to reveal that TV is about what sells as entertainment, not reality.
The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) named Caputo this year’s Pigasus performer of the year for her psychic showwomanship. Once again we ask: SHOW the world, do good for the world, take the JREF Million Dollar Challenge, Theresa! If you don’t, it tells us you like the money too much and prefer the celebrity culture instead of helping us understand. Putting yourself on a TV show year after year instead of truly sharing your “abilities” with the world by participating in scientific study speaks volumes about what we should think about the Long Island Medium and ALL celebrated psychics.
