Guess ABC is not swooping in to save Medium. After seven seasons, this supernatural show/mystery/domestic drama is coming to an end. Was it revolutionary? No. But it featured one of the most realistic families on television (all the psychics aside), its leads had tremendous chemistry, and I for one will miss it. Let's take a moment to list some of my favorite episodes.

Deadline Hollywood reports that “Medium,” despite its radically diminished ratings, is likely to come back for a second season on CBS and a seventh season on network television.

Again we’re hearing about a new economic model that favors renewals for shows owned by a network’s parent company because they provide big ancillary revenue.

According to Deadline, CBS gets $1.3 million per episode from Lifetime for repeats of “Medium,” which are wholly owned by CBS. “Ghost Whisperer” is only half-owned by CBS and generates only $.7 million per episode from its repeats on Syfy, We and Ion. “Medium” was also the top-rated scripted show on Friday and garnered a bigger total audience than the NBA playoffs:

Pundits have had a hard time predicting whether this will be the final season for Patricia Arquette’s five-year-old “Medium” – or not. Arquette herself seems ready for either a yea or nay. 

“You never know as an actor what the future holds. I’ll always be grateful for this a great time in my life,” she tells us. “I’ve been able to play really interesting things the writers have written – different time periods, different personalities, all kinds of amazing things.”

She’s also enjoyed her on-camera family, series hubby Jake Weber and daughters Sofia Vassilieva, Maria Lark, and twins Madison and Miranda Carabello (who share the role of Marie). “It’s so great to watch these girls grow up into such incredible young women. All the girls are taking on more and more and expressing their voices as actresses. Me and Jake love acting. We have great respect for it. They literally at us down and asked, ‘How do you prepare for a part? What do you do first? How do you break down a scene, a script?’ It’s impressive.”

Prognosis looks very good for CBS’ supernatural procedural Medium to return for a seventh season. There had been some renewal chatter over the past couple of days and, while the network has not made its final decision yet, signs point to a second season of Medium on CBS following the show’s infamous dismissal by NBC a year ago. (That's when then-NBC topper Ben Silverman called the crime drama starring Patricia Arquette "an aging franchise, without a single fan letter, with no passion").

It certainly didn’t hurt that the Medium jumped 29% in 18-49 on Friday vs. last week and ranked as CBS’ top program of the night with a 1.8 demo rating and 7.1 million viewers overall. It also doesn’t hurt that CBS owns Medium and in 2005 inked a rich off-network deal with Lifetime that licenses the series for $1.3 million an episode.

CBS reportedly is looking to keep some scripted presence on Friday, probably mixed with newsmagazine or unscripted programming. Conventional wisdom would have similarly-themed Ghost Whisperer and Medium staying on together, which is certainly a possibility. While down sharply from last year, Ghost Whisperer still provides a solid 8 PM anchor for the night. Economically, it is not as lucrative as Medium as it is only 50% owned by CBS and it sold for $700,000 an episode to Syfy, We and Ion. (It does very well internationally though, and CBS may opt to keep a show that could end up on a rival network, ABC).

CBS has several strong contenders among its comedy pilots, which may embolden it to drop most, or all, of its existing half-hour shows except for How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, and Two and a Half Men (contingent on making a new deal with star Charlie Sheen, which appears likely). That way the network can introduce 3 new comedy series in the fall.

ABC and CBS tied in the adult demo with a 1.6 rating each. FOX had a 1.3, NBC a 1.2 and The CW, 0.6.

The actor talks about playing his character for six years and dodging the cancellation bullet
By ABBIE BERNSTEIN, Contributing Writer
Published 5/3/2010




Jake Weber, known for feature film roles in WENDIGO, U-571, the remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD and THE HAUNTING OF MOLLY HARTLEY, is now in his sixth season of playing Joe Dubois on MEDIUM. Joe, a science-minded engineer, is married to Patricia Arquette’s psychic character Allison, who uses her gifts to help the Phoenix district attorney’s office. They have three daughters, all of whom seem to have inherited some aspect of Allison’s otherworldly gifts. However, nobody foresaw that, after five years on NBC, the series would be cancelled, so that the fifth-season finale was a cliffhanger that saw Allison comatose in the hospital. Happily for all concerned, CBS picked up MEDIUM; the show is now airing first-run episodes on its new network Friday nights.

iF MAGAZINE: Would you have felt bad about where your character Joe was left off if MEDIUM had ended with last season’s cliffhanger?

JAKE WEBER:
Not so much for my character, but there are two hundred and fifty people there with families and jobs that would have had a real hard time right now – it’s a tough time to be unemployed. It would have been nice if we’d known we were going to finish – it would have been nice to have some closure to it, rather than leave it on a cliffhanger. So many great shows have just ended like that. It would have been a shame to end it without having some sort of storyline that was satisfying for an audience. And also, it would have been sad for the two hundred and thirty people who worked on the show to all of a sudden be made [unemployed].

“I hope everyone who comes will leave with a more clear and serene understanding of life after death”



LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allison DuBois, the inspiration for CBS’s hit TV series MEDIUM, begins her largest tour ever, offering audiences in more than a dozen cities in the U.S., Canada and Australia the opportunity to reconnect with those who have passed on.
