Allison's Gift Altered in the New 'Medium' Promo

CBS is going full throttle in promoting its new series " Medium " which was snatched this summer from NBC. The latest promo shows the more creepy and darker side of having a gift to foresee the future, putting Alison in situations which are beyond her control. Executive Producer Glen Gordon Caron said Allison will deal with the aftermath of her health problems and how it changes her gift. In the season premiere, Allison is slowly, sporadically regaining both her physical abilities and her psychic talents. Unfortunately, she becomes more confused then enlightened when her "gift" re-emerges as a strange form of deja-vu, that hinders rather than helps her in her investigation of newscaster Sophie Cullen's alleged stalker, Peter Winant. The show is fittingly paired with another supernatural show, " Ghost Whisperer ", on Fridays starting September 25. Previously while attending TV Critics Association press tour, Caron said that the right to adapt horror classic "Night of the Living Dead" as one of the episodes has been acquired. There will be a time within the new season where Allison will have to deal with monsters and zombies. To Watch The Promo Click Here . Source Here

Medium: Allison vs. Zombies and Jennifer Love?

A move to CBS means fresh ideas for the paranormal drama, including a Halloween episode and a potential crossover. One of the more interesting network maneuvers to come about at this year's upfronts was CBS' decision to pick up Medium after NBC dropped the paranormal drama. Now on a stable network, the producers of Medium finally have an idea of what's to come, and it's shaping their creative process for the better. One of the perks of being on CBS is having a set schedule -- Medium frequently bounced around NBC's schedule and spent its last few seasons as a midseason replacement) -- and that means it's Halloween-themed episode time! But don't expect spirit-channeler Allison Dubois to carve a pumpkin and call it a day. Medium characters will be stepping into the 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead, creating a "sort of landscape to her dreams," creator Glenn Gordon Caron told Zap2It. Sounds very cool, but alas, we'll have to wait until October to see how it works out. In another potential stroke of creativity, CBS is considering a crossover episode by pairing Medium and its new Friday night mate, The Ghost Whisperer (can you handle the Jennifer Love Hewitt/Patricia Arquette hotness!?!?). CBS president Nina Tassler told reporters at the TCAs that the network has to get Medium comfortably suited in its new home -- but once that happens, they'll certainly look into making the sexiest scripted Ghost Hunters-esque show EVER.

Medium Revels in Place Among Living Dead

Medium will pay tribute this season to Night of the Living Dead - which couldn't be more appropriate, given the show's recent history. NBC dropped Patricia Arquette's supernatural crime drama last season, but it was quickly revived by CBS, whose production division produces the show. "I'd been told unofficially we were getting picked up," Arquette said at Monday's Television Critics Association fall-TV tour. "I was about to buy a house, then I got told we got dropped. I was unemployed. And then I got a job. It was like, you're hired, you're fired. You're hired!" Executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron said he tried to leave NBC no choice but to renew the show by writing a cliffhanger finale. "I did not know we were going to CBS, but for that matter I wasn't certain that we'd be picked up by NBC," he said. "So what I was trying to do was write an ending that was so provocative it would be impossible to cancel the show. ... It was sort of me being a wiseguy." Caren said he isn't bitter at NBC, but did take a few jokey swipes at his show's old home. "CBS has already run more promos than NBC in the whole five years," Medium was on the air, he said. "But I say that with love in my heart." The show's tribute to Night of the Living Dead, in which Arquette will be inserted into actual footage from the George Romero classic, will air the night before Halloween. It marks a return to horror for Arquette, who made her film debut in Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. Source Here

CBS Considering 'Medium' & 'Ghost Whisperer' Crossover - Featured

Now that " Medium " is under CBS' roof, there is a bigger chance that it will crossover to " Ghost Whisperer ". Both shows, being the ones with supernatural elements, are to fill the Friday night slots for the network this Fall. CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters on Monday, August 3 that CBS indeed has a lot of plans for "Medium". When asked whether Patricia Arquette's Allison may bump into Jennifer Love Hewitt's Melinda somewhere along the season, Tassler won't say no. "It's never too soon (to consider)," she said. "Their mythologies are different, and we haven't talked about a crossover, but it's possible. I think right now, the shows have a different language. They have a different skill set, different rules, etc., but once we get the show launched and comfortable in its time period, we could certainly talk about it." During the occasion, Tassler also revealed the network's happiness in taking over "Medium" from NBC. "On behalf of the studio, I don't think NBC really treated the show the way it should have been treated, where it was put on the schedule, how it was supported. To get Emmy winner Patricia Arquette on Friday night for us was a home run," she gushed. Both "Medium" and "Ghost Whisperer" premiere on September 25. Creator Glenn Gordon Caron revealed he has bought the rights to horror classic "Night of the Living Dead" in order to put monsters inside "Medium". Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Monday, June 1, 2009 - Featured

* I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! (8 pm/ET NBC) Do you ever wish some "celebrities," like Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag and Janice Dickinson, would just go away? Well now they are. Sort of. In this reincarnation of the 2003 series that aired on ABC, 10 shameless famous people are dropped in the heart of the Costa Rican rain forest to have their survival skills tested in a series of challenges voted on by viewers. The C-listers featured on the previous version included Cris Judd (J.Lo's ex), Bruce Jenner and Melissa Rivers. And hey, we haven't seen much of Cris Judd lately, so maybe one day "Speidi" really will go away. We can only hope! * The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (11:35 pm/ET NBC) After more than three months off the air, Conan O'Brien makes the leap to the 11:35 pm/ET time slot. Replacing Jay Leno as host, the lovable carrot top settles into his new studio on the West Coast, but some things haven't changed. The band, including leader Max Weinberg, also made the move to L.A., and Andy Richter is back on the show - this time as announcer. Will Ferrell kicks things off as Conan's first guest (he was the last guest on Late Night, too), and Pearl Jam perform. * Jon & Kate plus 8 (9 pm/ET TLC) Last week's awfully somber Season 5 premiere drew record ratings for TLC, as Jon and Kate offered a surprisingly honest glimpse into their troubled marriage. From the looks of it, a reconciliation is nowhere in sight, so we doubt Jon will be too involved in tonight's episode, which was filmed on Kate's birthday. But have no fear, Duff Goldman is here. The fun-loving star of Ace of Cakes will be on hand to help the kiddies make their mom a memorable birthday cake. * Medium (10 pm/ET NBC) Domestic dream weaver Allison DuBois continues to put the "super" in "supernatural" in tonight's Season 5 finale. (The paranormal crime-time show is slated to rematerialize for a sixth season in September, moving from NBC to CBS.) Allison has endured ghastly and ghostly imagery throughout the years, but tonight's visions are perhaps her most nightmarish yet. She dreams of her very own family's massacre, only to then be comforted by an unfamiliar man. But when this male stranger appears in her actual life, a shuddering Allison fears that her chilling visions will come true. * The Hills Presents: Speidi's Wedding Unveiled (11 pm/ET MTV) Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag tied the knot - officially - in last night's Season 5 finale. This 30-minute special offers a behind-the-scenes look at the attention-loving pair as they prepared to say "I do" in the fairy-tale wedding Heidi has always dreamed of. Source Here
