There really may be life after death … for the supernatural drama "Medium."
NBC canceled the CBS Television Studios-produced drama Tuesday, a decision that CBS found "inexplicable," according to industry reports.
"The ratings don't lie," reads a statement by CBS. "'Medium' outperforms many of NBC's renewed shows. Despite inconsistent scheduling, 'Medium,' under the creative vision of [creator] Glenn Gordon Caron, one of the most preeminent producers in television, has always performed with distinction both creatively and commercially. Multiple award-winning actress Patricia Arquette and the cast have delivered a stellar series for five consistent seasons. The awards and ratings speak for themselves. We believe the show has a significant future and await developments."
It's possible that if CBS gives "Medium" new life, it will be a companion show for "Ghost Whisperer" on Fridays for double the speaking-to-the-dead action.
Your thoughts? Would this be a wise move by CBS? What about NBC's decision?
