List of Medium episodes

The third season of Medium, an American television series, began November 15, 2006, and ended on May 16, 2007. It aired on NBC.


Despite a decline in the ratings during Season 2, NBC renewed Medium for a third season, but was missing from the fall schedule. The series was slated to return in 2007, however, in October 2006 NBC announced that Medium would return on November 15, 2007 at 9pm with a 2-hour premiere before settling into its 10.00pm slot the following week. The series moved from its previous Monday 10.00pm timeslot to Wednesdays at 10.00pm. Its move to Wednesday, airing against CSI: NY and Lost, resulted in further erosion in the ratings, falling into single digit millions of viewers. The ratings decline resulted in the show being on the bubble for renewal but during the season NBC ordered a full 22 episode season. The show was renewed for a fourth season in May 2007.
