    Interesting how much it improved in its usual 10 pm slot. Too bad for the million + viewers who tuned in late only to find out they had missed the first hour of a 3-part arc.

    Glad to see numbers reaching the 8 million mark again.

    Actually, the 10 pm numbers are among the best of the season. That's at least encouraging. I hope the series can rebound a bit next year.

    The program is actually picking up viewers late in the hour? That's intriguing. Like those numbers, hopefully we get an even nicer boost once the DVR results come in. I watched live.

    Not bad, considering this season stretched into June. Although, too bad these numbers don't count toward the show's season average.

    Thank you, Tesser, for keeping us posted on this throughout the season!

    Medium made its CBS debut last night with a repeat episode at 10 p.m.

    4.027 million viewers with a 1.0/3 18-49 demo & 0.6/2 18-34 demo.

    It pulled 47% less than the network's average in the slot this summer. But hey how many people even knew it was on after Big Brother and this isn't its new day for the fall.

    Yeah, this airing was a sort of random. Big Brother isn't exactly the right lead-in for Medium.

    i'm kinda in two minds about that rating. on the one hand it's great for Medium and i'm bloody excited... on the other... Dollhouse looks like it won't survive a second season...
