[On Crossing Over with John Edward, a TV show where the guy allegedly talks with dead people using cold reading]

i think that is that most stupid show ever - the guys just communicating with demonic spirits who tell him stuff about the family

No, he's communicating with his plants in the audience who tell him stuff, or people who tell his \"spies\" (probably overstating it to call them that, but it's the best word I can think of for it) all about who they were hoping to hear from.

And of course their is the question forums that the audience fills out before the taping starts. Add in the fact that for each 1/2 hour shown on TV there was about 2 hours of material actually filmed and the conman theroy is a lot stronger then the demon theroy.

Penn and Teller did an entire episode of \"Bullshit\" showing how a skilled person can pull off this act. So did \"South Park\".

Right conclusion, wrong premise.

Failure. If that was actually true, it would be the most AWESOME show ever.

I agree it was a really stupid show, but not for the reasons you think. He was not talking to demonic spirits he was a con man with no abilities to speak of what so ever.
