NBC has canceled ‘Medium’ but it looks like the series has been given a new life on CBS, the home of the very similar ‘Ghost Whisperer.’ CBS has picked up the Patricia Arquette vehicle for its Friday lineup. But not before giving a stern smackdown to the peacock network, in the form of a just-released statement about the harsh cancellation.

CBS says:

NBC’s cancellation of MEDIUM is inexplicable to us.

The ratings don’t lie: MEDIUM outperforms many of NBC’s renewed shows.

Despite inconsistent scheduling, MEDIUM, under the creative vision of Glenn Gordon Caron, one of the most preeminent producers in television, has always performed with distinction both creatively and commercially. Multiple award-winning actress Patricia Arquette and the cast have delivered a stellar series for five consistent seasons. The awards and ratings speak for themselves.

We believe the show has a significant future and await developments.”
