It's a ratings war for two celebrity psychics and no one saw it coming! Tyler Henry – star of E!'s hit show Hollywood Medium – and his ABC counterpart, Monica Ten-Kate aka Monica the Medium, are facing off for viewers and only RadarOnline.com has the inside story.
Season One of Monica The Medium ended in October 2015 with a reported .63 million viewers for the final episode. Tyler, meanwhile, averaged 1.6 million viewers through its first five episodes. And an insider said for Henry, the victory is sweet.
A source close to production for ABC told RadarOnline.com exclusively, "Before Tyler signed with E! network, he was in negotiations with ABC."
"ABC chose to go with Monica rather than Tyler, which is when Tyler was snagged by E!"
According to the insider, "ABC's plan backfired because Tyler is on fire right now!"
Because of Henry's success, RadarOnline.com has learned that he signed a multi-million dollar contract to return for Season 2, which began filming today.
