CBS Cancels 'Cold Case,' 'Ghost Whisperer' and More; 'Medium' Renewed

Cold CaseCBS officially canceled seven series today, the Live Feed is reporting.

Among the shows axed is the Sunday-night procedural 'Cold Case,' which slipped in the ratings in recent seasons but still drew relatively decent numbers in its 10PM timeslot. 'Cold Case' ends after seven seasons on the network.

Meanwhile, in a somewhat surprising decision, CBS will bid farewell to its steady Friday-night drama 'Ghost Whisperer,' starring Jennifer Love Hewitt.

'The New Adventures of Old Christine' will also depart the network this season, though it's possible it may be saved by ABC. No official decision has been made.

Also getting the boot: the freshman comedy series 'Accidentally on Purpose.' The Jenna Elfman vehicle performed fairly well in its Monday-night timeslot, but dipped when it was temporarily moved to Wednesdays.

Rounding out today's cancellations are 'Miami Medical,' 'Gary Unmarried' and 'Numb3rs,' which was given a reduced episode order back in November.

But it wasn't all bad news today: According to reports, CBS has renewed 'Rules of Engagement' and 'Medium' for another season.

More developing ...

The only good shows seem to be cancelled. I love Cold Case and I also like Medium and now all I see are shows imitating others and they are not as good. I always looked forward to these shows and now I hear Closer will be cancelled. What is wrong with you people.

SUPER SAD to see Cold Case go. I absolutely love everythimg about this show and they could make so many. Who doesn't wanna see cold cases solved by a superb cast? Can TNT pick up where CBS dropped the ball? I pesrsonally don't like CBS anyway and watch cold case on TNT now at 1:00 in the afternoon. Hey I can make due with watching the reruns, but would jump for joy if someone else picked up Cold Case. I would love hearing more songs that are perfectly picked for the moment.....on COLD CASE.
