The Mentalist (Tv Series) 2008

The Mentalist is an American crime procedural television series which debuted on September 23, 2008 on CBS.

Premise: Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker stars as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the fictitious California Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his amazing skills of observation. He also makes frequent use of his mentalist abilities and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium using paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. He abandoned his pretense out of remorse when his attention-seeking attracted the attention of a serial killer who killed his family.
Reception
The pilot episode had an audience of 15.6 million viewers in its first airing, and 7.8 million in a re-airing three days later. It also introduced some of Jane’s backstory, indicating that his wife and daughter had been murdered five years before the series began by a serial killer known as “Red John.” On October 15, 2008, CBS ordered a full season of The Mentalist. The December 2, 2008 episode (“Flame Red”) was the highest-rated television show of the week, marking the first time a program in its first season had achieved that distinction since Desperate Housewives four years earlier. On January 7, 2009, the show won the award for “Favorite New TV Drama” at the 35th People’s Choice Awards.
