Show Summary

Toby Logan is a paramedic who can read people's thoughts. Toby did not manage to know his parents and grew in foster homes. Until now Toby has kept his ability secret and the only one he has shared it with is his old counselor and confidant, Dr. Ray. While he crosses the city of Toronto in his ambulance with his partner Oz, Toby tries to help persons in crisis and on the way treat his own wounds. With the help of Detective Marks and his ex-girlfriend Olivia, an E.R doctor, Toby realizes that his gift can serve to help other people. The show, which contains humorous and tragic elements, follows Toby as he uses his power to solve crimes. The Listener is produced by Program Partners in association with Shaftesbury Films.

    Dear CBS, Why did you stop producing this tv series? I've been following this for quite a long time already and I'm still hungry for more! Please reconsider producing season 6!

  • THE PHILANTHROPIST CASHES IN IN JUNE, BUT FOUR-NIGHTS A WEEK OF I'M A CELEBRITY… GET ME OUT OF HERE IS OVERKILL.

    NBC's summer has sizzle, but more fizzle

    Remember last year's NBC summer lineup? Centered around the Olympics, NBC went all red-white-and-blue with "NBC's All-American Summer," which included American Gladiators and Nashville Star. The network pushed its lineup hard, presumably while wearing an Uncle Sam mask and…
