NBC Cancels MEDIUM and CBS picks it up. This probably caused ELEVENTH HOUR not to get renewed and I hate this because it was a damn good show. WITHOUT A TRACE, I thought, was a good performer and I'm surprised it got the axe as well. THE UNIT pretty much sucked this year and I'm not surprised it got cancelled.

Boo on breaking up the How I meet your mother/Big Bang combo. Heroes' time slot also kills this as well. I was hoping to DVR Heroes then watch it at 9:00 pm then again that show needs all the ratings help even though its NBC's number 2 show. The only good news about CBS is they re-signed a two extension with the NFL, so hopefully it will make a strike next year less of a possibility.
Reading thru the coverage the last few days, it sounds like NUMB3RS was the Last Show In after Medium was picked up, beating out Without A Trace because NUMB3RS had a cheaper budget. (I'd like to score that as ME 1, WILBON 0, so I just did.)
They're actually pitching that Friday night lineup as 8: ghosts 9: crime solving ghosts 10: crime solving
It seems silly that the NCIS spinoff is on right after NCIS, but I guess you just lock all those people down easily.
Big Bang Theory I love, and recently started watching HIMYM. Caught Rules of Engagement this week and it was OK. Bummed they are moving TBBT opposite Raw, it was perfect at 8:00. Only CBS show(s) I watch and Scrubs is the only ABC show I watch. If it wasn't for cable I would barely watch TV :(
THIS WEEK IN TV, OR THE RETURN OF NETWORK TELEVISION Well technically last week was, with the premiere of Saturday Night College Football. But that's dependent upon the NCAA schedule, so we're not going to count that.
