E: Here it is, Monica the Medium. She's a junior at Penn State, not in high school. Wikipedia says it got picked up for a second season.

Episode summaries at IMDb

How many reality shows exist with this sort of stupid premise that make it a few seasons yet fly under the radar? I don't really pay much attention to the genre, and I don't really see how it's really any sort of long-term programming solution. Is the cheapness of such shows really worth it when their popularity expires after five years if not sooner? Seems like a lovely investment.

No, it's still about the genre the Duggars inhabit, and how it seems that shaming idiots like this doesn't keep them off the air. I don't really see anybody watching Duggar reruns five years in the future, even if they manage to avoid any more scandals.

I've been saying that Sister Wives is the worst show on TLC, but I keep forgetting about Long Island Medium. I hate that poo poo so much.

Goddamned loving "psychics".

When I still lived on Long Island, there was more than one otherwise rational, intelligent person that lost their loving minds when I said that woman is full of poo poo. And I'm still pissed about her ruining my friends' parents anniversary dinner because she showed up to the restaurant with the camera crew and spent an hour walking around to tables asking people about their dead relatives.

You've got to have a little bit of respect for someone who is capable of convincing otherwise rational people that she can see their death by rubbing their hands.

Eh, people have little blind spots about poo poo, especially if they've not experienced someone cold reading people and then having it explained afterwards, for example. Somebody waltzing up to you and nailing a rapid succession of life details is stupefying in the moment, but you've got your life on Facebook. I bet there's a face search app. Our brains take useful shortcuts that often are at odds with things like logic, reason and evidence.

Per one of the episodes where they talk about technology, only the guys are restricted in their online access, the girls likely visit whatever websites they want, since theyre the keepers of the net nanny password.

The girls are actually given the passwords needed to access the internet. Because men are lustful beasts and a single gaze upon a woman's countenance will allow Satan to build a fortress within their hearts, whereas women are sexless beings, despite the fact that they must hide their shameful bodies, who are nothing but receptacles for a man's seed.

It's not appropriate to use the word 'oval office' to describe someone who lies to people and exploits their grief about dead relatives/friends in order to scam them into some kind of 'psychic reading' in order to profit and have a TV show?

huh.
