NBC may have canceled 'Medium,' but the show's producer, CBS Television Studios, is not ready to pull the plug just yet.

Insiders say that corporate sibling CBS may pick up the show, and EW speculates it could be paired with Friday-night hit "Ghost Whisperer."

Then it got ugly: "The ratings don't lie. 'Medium' outperforms many of NBC's renewed shows. Despite inconsistent scheduling, 'Medium,' under the creative vision of Glenn Gordon Caron, one of the most preeminent producers in television, has always performed with distinction both creatively and commercially.  Multiple-award-winning actress Patricia Arquette and the cast have delivered a stellar series for five consistent seasons.
