TV Briefs: Gary Unmarried, Worst Week, Medium and Monk all renewed

Renewal season is in full swing, with some shows being axed, and others being renewed.

Fresh off the renewals list today:

CBS gave an additional seven-episode to “Gary Married” which starts Jay Mohr, Paula Marshall and Jaime King. The new order is on top of a previous 13 episode order.

CBS also extended situational comedy Worst Week, the American version of the UK sitcom The Worst Week of My Life. The show only has a short reprieve, getting only a 3 episode order, after initial strong ratings have fell away mid season.

NBC has ordered a half dozen more episodes of Medium according to THR. The show is being positioned as a mid-year replacement. More episodes may be ordered.

USA Network has picked up the eighth, and what it calls the final season of “Monk.”

USA has ordered 16 episodes of Monk for its eight seasons, but is billing the order as the final season.
