Yay for a full season! I'm not sure how many episodes it will be. I hope it will be 20-ish.

A ”full season” usually means 22 to 24 episodes but networks have become a little tricky with that term lately

Ghosts Adds Veep Vet Matt Walsh to Play Hetty's Robber Baron Husband

ghosts-cbs-matt-walsh-cast.jpg?w=620&h=4

Matt Walsh will play Elias, a “gregarious robber baron” and “philandering scoundrel of a man” from the 19th century who also happens to be the husband of Sam’s ancestor Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky). For now, he will appear in one episode.

They're adding another character to an already bloated cast?

Cool. So we'll get elaboration on that story about Elias sitting for the portrait, then sleeping with the artist. There might be more gay subtext to fly over Isaac's head.

CBS Entertainment Head Kelly Kahl Talks ‘Ghosts’ Success, More ‘CSI: Vegas’ as Midseason Schedule Takes Shape

CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl says “I think ‘Ghosts’ is on its way to being the breakout comedy of the year. And it’s not slowing down. People are still discovering it. What we always have to remind ourselves these days is that it does take a little longer for people to discover shows. So the people who have discovered it really love it. And now the plan is just to try to get more eyeballs on it as the season goes on.”

I’m laughing at Crash. Does anyone remember the movie “Soap Dish” with Robert Downey Jr, Sally Field, Whoopi Goldberg, and a host of other name actors? If you haven’t seen it, it’s a movie about the behind the scenes drama of a daytime soap opera and they’re going to bring back Kevin Kline’s character after 20 years just to piss off Sally Field, and it turns out he’d been written off the show by being decapitated in a car crash. It sets up a great scene for Whoopi where she’s yelling at the director, “I can’t write for someone WHO DOESN’T HAVE A HEAD!”

That's a shame. Hope whoever it is feels better soon. 

On a lighter note...from Matt's Inside Line over at TVLine:

Anything on the back half of Ghosts? –Connor
Let’s see what I can scare up, shall we? Among the tidbits from a recent CBS panel for the show: We will learn what happened to Trevor’s pants; Sam and Jay will open their B&B by the end of the season; Pete and Jay will become basketball-watching buddies; an upcoming episode will delve into Sasappis’ backstory and feature Román Zaragoza’s real-life dad as Sas’ father. Also in the back half of the season, every ghost will appear in every episode, so you can stop asking, “Hey, Where’s [Insert Missing Ghost]?”

Lol at the bolded part. So apparently it wasn't just us here! It was noticeable to the audience in general, it sounds like.

He's been trapped on the property but the two of them haven't seen each other in 130 years? 

hmmmm... there are possible explanations here...

a) he's been hanging out with the plague victims in the basement

b) he's been hanging out with Issac's war buddies in the shack

c) he's been having an affair with Flower, so hiding out of sight (OK, that only explains the last few decades)

I'm not sure how I feel about this...  I really don't want any "new" ghosts, unless they can plausibly be one episode characters, like Issac's military opponents.  I don't see how that could happen with Hetty's husband.  Of course, it would be hilarious to have Sam, Alberta and Flower giving Hetty some bedroom pointers...

I am confident that these writers thought this out thoroughly, and my guess is that the purpose of introducing Hetty's husband is to inform the characters and the audience of a situation in which a "new" ghost might appear.

Maybe he was trapped in the attic? We have basement ghosts might as well have attic ghosts. And no one has probably gone to the attic in 130 years. 

Interesting that Hetty's husband is a ghost, I figured he'd be in flashbacks only.

If so, I hope he wasn't alone all this time.🥺

ETA: Or maybe ghosts can have Rip Van Winkle nap experiences?

I once read a story about some sort of spirits who could not cross running water. The ones in a city were trapped where they were, until the water system went down.

With this whole "can't cross property lines from where you died" thing, maybe the lines changed between when Hetty and her husband died, keeping them separate, and the new owners just had a new survey and changed them back again.  Yeah, it's all arbitrary, but what ghostly government entity is keeping track of property lines?  They must change for them as they change for us or else those who died long ago [like the Viking and the Native American] wouldn't be constrained by today's property lines - and certainly the love interest of our Native American wouldn't be constrained by the building she is in.

And why am I blanking on everybody's names?

We know Hetty doesn’t want any memory (or at least painting) of her husband around. Maybe he feels the same and has avoided the house? I’m going to guess theirs was an arranged marriage. His family had a respectable name but no money while her family had money but no name. What’s certain is Hetty is no one’s chattel especially after she learned to vote. Was Hetty deferential while alive? Will Sam and Jay’s relationship of equals guide her to resolve her past marital feud? (I also don’t think they need another ghost. Maybe we’ll see someone sucked off just so we know what happens?)

I did not recall that, but now that you mention it, that sounds to me like a pre-planned hook for the entrance of Hetty's husband.
That is: I'm guessing if she sees a portrait of her late hubby, he will appear. 

And, yes, maybe his appearance will lead to:

This is how the CBS Lineup stacked up against each other on Thurs, Jan. 6th.

Young Sheldon returned to 7.2 million total viewers (veritably matching its season high) and a 0.7 rating, holding steady in the demo vs. its fall finale — as did B Positive (4.8 mil/0.4). United States of Al (5.4 mil/0.5), Ghosts (6.2 mil/0.6) and Bull (4.6 mil/0.4) all rose in the demo while hitting audience highs for the season.

According to my cable guide, Ghosts is bumped next week by 2 episodes of B Positive on 1/27. Big Brother Celeb Version (ugh) premieres on 2/3 at 9. Sheldon and Ghosts reruns at 8 and 8:30. Who knows what happens during the Olympics. More reruns?

Next 2 weeks are repeats for sure. Futon Critic suggests new episodes for 4 weeks after that and then March Madness basketball will take over on CBS in March http://thefutoncritic.com/showatch/ghosts-cbs/listings/
