NBC's "Wedding" Crashed; "Medium" To Live
NBC has announced it is pulling the low-rated reality series "The Real Wedding Crashers" putting repeats of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" in its place, while Patricia Arquette-fronted "Medium" got an early renewal for a fourth season.
"Law & Order: CI" as well as its original incarnation are considered to be "on the bubble," but there now seems to be hope for the former as the network puts its fall schedule together.
The new schedule will of course be unveiled at next week's Upfronts event in New York. NBC has however decided not to wait that long and give its Wednesday night series "Medium" an early renewal.
The show has struggled in its new timeslot, but it nevertheless manages to build on its lead-in "Crossing Jordan." Last month the network ordered more scripts, always a good sign for a show's survival.
Meanwhile, there is still no news on the fate of "Friday Night Lights," the network's other "on-the-bubble" Wednesday night show which has awed TV critics and its small but loyal audience with its quality storytelling.
There has, however, been some positive buzz that the cast will be attending the event in New York next week, which means the drama may also get the network's bode of confidence.
