Jamie Kennedy's Nine Lives

The funnyman is returning to TV -- again! -- with 'Supreme Court of Comedy'

Ghost Whisperer may be dead -- but Jamie Kennedy’s career lives to see another day. Kennedy (who recently split with Ghost costar Jennifer Love Hewitt) serves up comedic justice tonight on the DirecTV 101 reality show, Supreme Court of Comedy (10 p.m. ET).

The show is in its third season, but it's Kennedy’s first as a regular. Think The Marriage Ref meets Judge Joe Brown, where highly untrained comedians argue real cases in front of joker judge Dom Irrera -- playing it for laughs, naturally. Case in point? A mom and daughter fighting it out over the same bra. Yes, really. Tonight, Kennedy goes up against comedian Kevin Nealon, best known for his turns on SNL and Weeds.

Is it just us, or is Kennedy like those unstoppable Whack-a-Mole games, where carnival customers try -- but inevitably fail -- to keep him from popping back up, over and over? Yeah, I thought so.

Talk about nine lives: The actor started out as the resident film geek in the Scream franchise, then nabbed his own show, the 2002 candid-camera prank comedy The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, which aired for two years on the CW.

Post-JK Experiment, though, Kennedy has been hiding out mostly behind the scenes, doing voices and Fanboy and ChumChum, producing and writing Living With Fran (starring Fran Drescher), while filming the occasional straight-to-dvd comedy, like Son of the Mask and Jamie Kennedy: Unwashed.

Kennedy landed the Ghost Whisperer spot in 2008, playing a sort of nutty professor on the supernatural drama, which was a new direction for the comic chameleon. And he may see a further career revival if he ends up signing on for the fourth installment of the Scream series, as rumored. He's as tenacious as he is talented, clearly, and we can't help but expect that we'll be seeing him for years to come.

Does Jamie Kennedy make you laugh? Chime in below!
