It doesn't look like The Unit will be doing any more tours. The drama has been left off CBS' schedule after four years on air. Also on the outs were a pair of NBC shows: My Name is Earl and Medium. However, they may find a new home.
In the wake of recent cancellations of My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle, NBC has decided to puff up its remaining shows starting with midseason's Medium. The network is asking Medium producers for six more episodes on top of its shortened 13-episode order.
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 ...Read more
NBC may not be willing to wait around for Medium to cook a little longer. The network has asked for three more scripts of the drama, says The Hollywood Reporter. What does this mean for the show? Well, could be a few things.
One of the more interesting network maneuvers to come about at this year's upfronts was CBS' decision to import Medium into its fold after NBC decided it no longer wanted the drama. Now on a stable network, the producers of Medium finally have an idea of what's to come, and it's shaping their creative process for the better.
CBS has given a full-season order to its freshman series Jericho. The network credits the series with boosting its ratings for the night in key demographics.
Jericho averages 11.3 million weekly viewers, and has lifted CBS's Wednesday 8-9 p.m. ratings almost 50 percent over last year. The show stars Skeet Ulrich, Gerald McRaney, and Ashley Scott in a tale of a Midwestern town dealing with the aftermath of a nuclear bomb explosion.
Jericho is the second new series to get a full-season pickup. NBC gave Heroes a full-season order last week.
NBC has confirmed it is bringing back the Patricia Arquette mystery drama Medium. Beginning November 15, Medium will air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m., in the spot Kidnapped is vacating.
Freshman action series Kidnapped was moved to Saturdays last week after it was announced the show will wrap ...Read more
There's been a lot of hubbub on the Web over the status of Kristen Bell's contract with Heroes. The former Veronica Mars star joined the NBC show last season as the electric Elle after reportedly turning down a role on Lost (which went to the fabulous Rebecca Mader).
But because she hasn't signed on for season three of Heroes, many sites stirred the rumor pot by trumpeting the fact that she isn't yet under contract with the show and could bail on Hayden Panettiere and company.
Bell spoke with TVGuide.com to put any worry to rest.
"I've had an unbelievable experience thus far and they seem to like me and want to keep me onboard, so we're going to keep that ball rolling for as long as we can," said Bell. "I think we ...Read more
