Medium has been circling the drain for a few years now. It was cancelled by NBC and saved in the last hour by CBS (who produces it). Then about a month ago CBS cut its order from 22 to 13 episodes essentially guaranteeing it’s cancellation, but never formally announcing it. Well earlier today Patricia Arquette spoke to Entertainment Weekly and to quote her; “We got cancelled”. Now there’s no word yet from CBS, but the ex-Mrs Cage’s word is pretty good on the subject. I wish I could write more of a post-mortem, but I didn’t watch it – at least not since episode 5 or 6. Medium will be missed by its fans… but not really anyone else.
