"Medium" could perhaps be headed to the TV afterlife. CBS has cut the veteran show's order this season from 22 to 13 episodes, which will help make room for the network's midseason series and may signal an end for the drama, which has dropped in the ratings this season. [ Variety]

The midseason FOX show formerly called "Ride-Along" has a new title: "The Chicago Code."
