Medium gets picked up for another season

yay!!! Our previous posts on Medium here. I have been a Patricia Arquette fan since Freddy 3…

HA! Eat THAT NBC you TOOLZ!!!!! Recall the prxck saying it was ‘an aging franchise without a single fan letter’ a year ago. Frakkers.

THR Live Feed has it:

…Veteran procedurals “Cold Case,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Numbers” will not be renewed. Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Miami Medical” is likewise canceled, as is fello newcomer “Accidentally on Purpose,” which mainly aired in the network’s Monday night comedy block. Veteran Wednesday night comedy “New Adventures of Old Christine” is also cancelled.

Meanwhile the network has just picked up “Medium” and “Rules of Engagement” for next season.

With the CBS’ upfront on Wednesday, the network suddenly has launched into a flurry of bubble show decision making.

The most surprising outcome here is canceling “Ghost Whisperer,” which many insiders expected to return and consistently won its Friday night time period….

Medium ‘Night of the Living Dead – Bite Me’ Episode airs Friday, 900pm

SciFiWire has it, sounds awesome. We love the show, our previous posts on Medium here.

…Medium is planning one of the more amusing Halloween episodes we’ve come across, a TV mash-up with Night of the Living Dead. The episode is (also amusingly) called “Bite Me” and runs Friday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m.

“We literally insert Allison into the 1968 George Romero movie Night of the Living Dead,” said Medium creator and executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. Of course, there’s also a mystery to be solved in her waking world, involving a missing funeral director.

'Bite Me' airs Fri., Oct. 30th at 900pm on CBS

Caron said the idea of putting a character from one of his series into an old movie has been kicking around for 20 years. “Actually I was going to do it on Moonlighting years ago. We were going to do it with an AIP movie. I think it was Godzilla vs. Mothra.” (Now, that’s an episode we would have watched!)…

…”Craig and I thought it sounded like a fun idea, but we had to find the right film,” said Doherty. “We did a search for public-domain films and realized that Night of the Living Dead was public domain. It was really amazing and perfect. Craig and I are huge zombie movie fans. … We also thought it was perfect for a Halloween episode.”

To provide some sense of jeopardy for the dream, the writers decided to do something they haven’t done before on Medium, where Allison begins to suffer real physical damage from her adventures into the world of black and white. “You have to be as worried about Allison as you would be if this were her waking life. So a zombie bite in the dream will follow her out into her waking life.”….

Update: Interview with the ‘real’ Allison DuBois after the break:

Fall Lineup – Network Executive Freaks continue to diss fans: NBC disses Medium, CBS picks it up…

WTH is wrong with these network executives?? Why are they dissing fans? Now this loon at NBC calls a highly successful show, the only NBC show I watch in fact, Medium which I DVR, an ageing franchise without a single fan letter”?? WTH?! I mean look at TSCC we wrote thousands of letters and Reilly kicked us in the teeth too..

At least CBS which produces Medium defended it, I would LOVE to see WB and Halcyon puulllleeeeeze pick up TSCC and defend the honor of our show and fans like this….

SciFiWire:

..After a sniping match between NBC and CBS executives about Medium, CBS added the Patricia Arquette supernatural drama to its Friday nights, following Ghost Whisperer, in the upfront announcement of its fall schedule on Wednesday in New York.

As expected, CBS canceled the sci-fi series Eleventh Hour.

The buzz had been that CBS would pick up Medium, which is produced by CBS TV Studios, if NBC decided to cancel it, which it did on Tuesday.

NBC co-chairman Ben Silverman had said Medium was “an aging franchise, without a single fan letter, with no passion” after the show’s cancellation.

CBS TV Studios shot back in a statement: “NBC’s cancellation of Medium is inexplicable to us. The ratings don’t lie: Medium outperforms many of NBC’s renewed shows.”

Since it’s unlikely Silverman would diss the show that had served them well for no reason, his statement likely reflected the knowledge that CBS would pick up the show…
