Medium summons renewal

Allison DuBois will see more dead people...at least for another season.

NBC has picked up Medium for another season, its fourth, ending the question of whether or not the drama would return, according to Reuters. Before the announcement, Medium was considered one of the network's "bubble shows"--programs with futures that were still undecided.

In the drama, Patricia Arquette plays as DuBois, a research medium who forgoes forensic tools in favor of her ability to speak to the deceased. The show debuted on January 3, 2005, and also stars Jake Weber and Miguel Sandoval. Medium carried decent ratings, averaging 8.5 million viewers this season.

DuBois won't be speaking with Oxygen's Tori & Dean: Inn Love anytime soon. Reuters also says the women's cable channel has given the reality show new life and picked it up for a second season. The show follows former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress Tori Spelling as she and her husband run a bed and breakfast, and it's Oxygen's second-highest-rated original program.

This is good news! I wonder if Allison "knew" before we did? Its good to share the joy of success with people who are supportive. I have read that the people who work on this show are a very close group and have a great working relationship. It really shows in the whole production. I say bring on the next season and many more!!!

Medium is a fabulous show, it's my favorite. Makes CBS' Ghost Whisperer look like a joke. Medium is real life, GW is supposed to be based on fact, but her flitting around is so annoying. Give me Alison any day!

Medium is an excellent show! I have never missed an episode, either. I tape most episode to watch them again. Patricia Arquette (and all the other actors) are wonderful and believable. The story-lines are compelling and the timing and rhythm of the show is dynamic. Please keep making this wonderful show!

That is great news, why would they get rid of one good show, I mean they took wednesday from medium, for bionic woman. how stupid is that and it won't start until late January 20th. they kept other dumb shows. I mean why would N.B.C. get rid of a show that did good for them I mean they are hurting, Bionic women won't do the job I wish it started sooner. why don't they get rid of 1vs100 that show is dumb.

What a weird transition sentence from Medium to the Tori show. I had to read it like 5 times to figure out why the two were put together.

Not a bad show or a bad decision on NBC's part for that matter. I like these shows a little darker, but that's just my personal preference.
