'Medium' gets picked up by CBS
CBS announced its Fall 2009 lineup on Wednesday morning, and Medium, which was just dropped by NBC after five seasons, has found a new home. Confirming a report by EW’s Michael Ausiello, the Patricia Arquette starrer, produced by CBS TV Studios, moves to Fridays on the Eye, between Ghost Whisperer and Numb3rs.
After NBC cochairman Ben Silverman had axed the show, labeling it “an aging franchise, without a single fan letter, with no passion,” CBS TV Studios had issued a sternly worded statement: “NBC’s cancellation of Medium is inexplicable to us,” it said. “The ratings don’t lie: Medium outperforms many of NBC’s renewed shows.”
