NBC gives 'Medium' an early renewal


NBC has handed out an early renewal to drama "Medium," which will return for a fourth season in the fall.

"'Medium' is a quality show with an outstanding star that has always delivered a very loyal audience," said NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly. "We are pleased to know that we can look forward to more of its unique storytelling next year under executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron's superb creative vision."

The renewal follows an order for six additional scripts made by NBC last month (HR 4/10).

This season, "Medium" is averaging a 3.0 rating/8 share among adults 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers overall in the Wednesday 10 p.m. time slot, building onto its lead-in from "Crossing Jordan."
