If you either tried to attend our Open Mic last night, or went to read the transcript, then you already know of my plight. I live straight in the path of the Snowpocalypse, so last night’s CBS lineup was pre-empted by local news coverage of the storm. I live in a pretty big news market, and I’m sure my affiliates weren’t the only ones to do so. Despite all of this, Medium improved its numbers over last week.
CBS easily won the night, yet again, with Ghost Whisperer and Medium both earning 2.2 million in the 18-49 demographic. Medium had slightly more total viewers than Ghost Whisperer, with 9.10 vs. Ghost Whisperer‘s 8.77 million. Numb3rs didn’t quite score as high in the coveted demographic, but still earned an impressive 2.0. It also once again scored the highest number of total viewers for the night, with 9.18 million. In fact, Numb3rs and Medium were the only two shows to end up with more than 9 million viewers for the night.
Obviously I have absolutely nothing to base this on, but I do have a general feeling that if Medium keeps averaging over a 2.0, it has a high likelihood of being renewed for a seventh season. Ever since Medium returned from its winter hiatus, it has pretty consistently been doing just this. I feel good about these numbers, and with each passing week, I feel better and better about Medium’s chance for renewal.
