Question: Why did NBC run a repeat of Medium last Thursday when they promised us a new episode? Are they trying to tick off the "16 million" people that gave the show a chance? Timothy
Ausiello: Here's the statement NBC gave me: "We launched the show successfully on Monday so we had the luxury of saving the episode originally scheduled for Thursday for the regular time period and the long battle ahead versus CSI: Miami. We thought we made the change in time to avoid confusing viewers, and we apologize for any confusion." Clearly, viewers forgave the Peacock. All 16 million viewers who tuned in for last week's premiere returned for Episode 2 this past Monday. The moral of the story? Lying breeds loyalty.
