Once again, Medium is not on its scheduled night. No. Instead we have an hour of American Gladiator and two hours of Deal or No Deal. That's your entertainment, folks! So much for prime time TV.
So I went to NBC and searched. Not a word about why Medium has not been running for the past three weeks. Never mind that the new season only just began after a long, long, long wait, but after 3 episodes, poof! gone without a trace and no explanation of when it will resume.
No, I don't believe it has anything to do with the writers' strike. They had all summer and fall and some of winter to get at least most of the episodes in the can, and so far they've only shown three.
After searching the NBC site and finding nary a word about Medium (except a lot of advertising for it), I sent them an email to ask them what was going on and when was it coming back.
A few minutes later I got this response:
Thanks for your email. NBC values your comments, but unfortunately, due to the volume of emails we receive, we cannot respond to each one. Please check our FAQ section to see if your question is answered there:
I'm tempted to say something rude here, but I won't. Because I'm a polite person even if NBC doesn't give a fig about its viewers. And they wonder why they're losing so many viewers to cable!
