CBS picks up Medium, insults NBC

MediumWell, this is a rather interesting development, and a good one for fans of NBC's Medium: CBS has picked up the show after NBC canceled it.

You don't often see that happening, but it's been happening more and more lately (and this upfront week is crazy in general, with lots of renewals for shows we all thought were pretty much dead). CBS didn't just pick up the show, they got in a few digs at NBC too. CBS Television Studios produces Medium, and they say that "NBC's cancellation of Medium is inexplicable to us," and went on to point out that "the ratings don't lie. Medium outperforms many of NBC's renewed shows." They also talk about how NBC scheduled the show inconsistently.

No word yet on what exactly CBS will do with the show. Perhaps pairing it with Ghost Whisperer on Friday nights? (Note: CBS will not, however, pick up Knight Rider. Sorry, fans!)
