    Thank you!
    It did make sense. So the demographics are very important regarding it getting cancelled or not! well this is a great season so far, so I hope it wont get cancelled for a while!

    Eh, I bet Castle will go down after this week and Medium will do better comparitively. But it doesn't help that Castle's lead-in is Dancing with the Stars.

    6.56 mil viewers - wtf!?! This makes me sad.

    As you predicted, Edward_Nigma, Castle's numbers were down, but I guess I didn't expect Medium's numbers to take such a beating. Here's to hoping this trend doesn't last...

    This makes me sad too!!! It's such a good show, especially this episode! When I saw patricia arquette at the paley center it was very crowded and everyone was a big fan. Hopefully Medium's ratings will boost, although 6.56 isn't terrible, it should be higher. Maybe it was just a bad night?

    So is this being the last season NOT a done deal?

    I haven't really checked on this much this season but I was under the impression that it was nearly axed last year and that they decided to bring it back for a shorter, mid-season LAST season this time.

    Was that not definite or was it dependent on ratings this season?

    I've just been watching thinking this was it.

    That was not the case. Actually, the show demonstrated a ratings improvement last year and it was one of the first shows to be renewed by the network for the 2008-099 season. As for a 6th season of the series, it remains to be determined, although I am confident it will get one.

    Nice to see it's beginning to climb back up in the ratings again, and that it's still building on its Chuck/Heroes lead-in. Looks like Castle is going down the drain in a hurry, which is good news for Medium. As long as Medium continues to build week to week, I'd say it's a sure bet to return next year. Probably not in the fall, but at the very least at mid-season, which is fine with me, as long as it comes back. Don't know what's gonna happen in two weeks when Heroes ends its season. I know Medium has a two hour movie event coming up in a few weeks, but I don't know how it's going to hold up against DWTS and 24 in the 9 o'clock hour. That'll be the best indicator of how it would do next season at 9. But hopefully by then NBC will have made a decision about it.

    #2 in viewers & demos??? Sa-weeeeeeet!

    I am glad to see the series' ratings rising again and holding its own against the competition *and* building on its lead-ins. I really can't see how NBC could justifiably ax this show right now, considering it's one of the network's most consistent performers.

    Don't worry. It's going to be back next season. It's just a matter of NBC making it official. With the way Castle has been sliding recently, I think Medium's numbers could easily get back up to the 8-9M mark, and might even (hopefully) reach at least a 3.0 in the demo. That would be awesome, and would most definitely guarantee its renewal (though I'm fairly certain that's in the bag.)

    Medium will get another season next year, I just hope it isn't thrown to mid-season again. I wish we would get a full season of 24 or so episodes though be cool. I think it'll probably be back next year, probably mid-season.
