UPDATED: The network cleaned house this morning, pulling the plug on Cold Case, Numbers, The Ghost Whisperer and The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried as well as struggling freshmen Miami Medical and Accidentally on Purpose. As expected, it renewed Rules of Engagement and Medium.
While Cold Case and Numbers were pronounced dead weeks and even months ago (Numbers star Rob Morrow already has a new series, the new ABC legal drama The Whole Truth) and newcomers Miami Medical and Accidentally on Purpose had virtually no chance to continue, the decision on Old Christine and Ghost Whisperer came down to the wire. In both cases it was reportedly based on financials. Old Christine‘s producer Warner Bros. TV has also been talking to ABC about potentially taking over the veteran sitcom.
