Jennifer Slept Here
27 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just wanted to see if anyone remembered a old TV show called "Jennifer Slept Here"? This series focuses on teenaged Joey Elliot and his family, who move into the home of the late Jennifer Farrell (played by the beautiful Ann Jillian). She still walks the halls, but is a ghost, and is only seen by Joey. I was a big fan of this show! When I was a kid, I was in love with Ann Jillian! She was my dream girl. I wanted to move into a haunted house also! This was a great show that never really got a chance. It never ranked above #25 in The Nielsen Ratings. So the it was canceled. Ann Jillian went on to do other movies and TV shows. NBC has no plans of a Jennifer Slept Here DVD release, but it sure was a great show!
