Jake Weber seems to be keeping busy by helping out fellow Medium co-star, Patricia Arquette, with aiding the people in Haiti. There are at least two pictures posted on the tweetpic account for GiveLove.org. Jake has also recently appeared in a HONDA HYBRID commercial. There's also a pretty nifty Japanese Website for Medium's Sixth Season you should check out as well.

How would you like to meet up for some Green Drinks? Although Green Drinks may sound like the perfect name for some newfangled, health-conscious, eco-friendly beverage, it's nothing of the sort.

It actually stands for something much better: the name the Green Drinks nonprofit uses for its meetings, where South Florida members -- area professionals who share a common interest in being "green" -- get together for drinks to discuss ways to protect the environment. And this year, Green Drinks will be raising its glass to more than just good ideas when it celebrates its second-annual Eco-Lifestyle Gala with actress Patricia Arquette, this year's recipient of its Eco-Lifestyle Pioneer Award.

Green Drinks will honor Arquette for her work with GiveLove, the nonprofit Haiti relief organization she founded alongside Rosetta Millington-Getty in 2010. Arquette will also host the special fundraising event, set to take place May 19 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.Recently, Charlie had an opportunity to speak with the celebrity philanthropist about her work with GiveLove, discuss what the Green Drinks award means to her -- and even get the scoop on her favorite eats when she's helping out in Haiti. Here's what actress Patricia Arquette had to say:

The Defenders dipping to a woeful 1.1 adults 18-49 rating on Friday brought out the aggrieved Medium fans complaining that their show had been cancelled for an even lower rated show:

  • user #1: CBS is missing the 1.5 of Medium now. Defenders suck and CBS is getting what’s coming to it–loss of an entire scripted night as the ratings are falling as they anger regular fans.
  • user #2: MEDIUM isn’t looking so bad now, huh???? Revenge is sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • user #3: Well, Medium’s numbers weren’t so bad after all, were they, CBS?


Nonsense. Medium was cancelled because its ratings were terrible. The Defenders will also certainly be cancelled because its ratings are terrible. Once this season’s initial ratings results were in, there was/is absolutely no chance either show would make it to the 2011-12 season.

If you never had a chance to watch the supernatural drama Medium on NBC, don’t get too down on yourself. Yes, the show got many noms for Hollywood’s most coveted awards (and won an Emmy), and Patricia Arquette did a fabulous job portraying real-life medium Allison Dubois. But why watch an actress pretend she can see ghosts when you can meet someone who claims they actually can?

Allison Dubois, the real-life inspiration for Medium, was recently featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but if you’re into the crystal-ball gazer thing, head to Krave this weekend to meet her face to face. Ms. Dubois herself will be conducing a Valentine’s Love & Relationship Seminar at the gay nightclub this Saturday. Select audience members will have the opportunity to ask the medium about past loves, relationships and more at this very unique Valentine’s Day event.

Whether you’re dying for the closure you never received or just want to party it up with the diviner (and surrounding spirits)—Dubois will also host the nightclub’s Heart On Valentine’s Day party following the event—head to Krave this Saturday and get spiritual.

VALENTINE’S LOVE & RELATIONSHIP SEMINAR

Saying goodbye to Medium, the surprisingly Jewish television show that perfectly captured the realities of parenting, the depths of grief, and the joys of everyday life



Medium, which ended its seven-season run last week, was a show about ghosts, the afterlife, and general spookiness. But what it was really about was the messiness of family life. It presented the challenges of parenthood—funny, irksome, intimate, quotidian—as worthy of attention. “Can you make it to make our daughter’s soccer game?” was as important as “Why has the ghost of a murder victim taken possession of our video camera?”

If you weren’t a Medium watcher, let me fill you in. The show’s heroine, Allison (Patricia Arquette) was a psychic in Arizona who worked for the Phoenix District Attorney’s office, helping to solve crimes. She had to juggle her psychic visions, her relationship with her engineer husband, Joe, and the needs of her three quirky daughters.

It’s ironic that a show about the paranormal was so, well, normal. Allison didn’t look like the cookie-cutter starlets populating the TV universe. She wasn’t a size 2. She never wore spike heels to a crime scene. Her house looked like a real home, with unfortunate blue-and-yellow kitchen tiles I’m certain she hoped to replace as soon as they could afford it. Her girls squabbled at the breakfast table, and not in an adorable smart-assed sitcom-sassy way. I loved the show’s depiction of a loving marriage in which the partners fought and made up and had the same arguments over and over. (“Allison! Maybe that was just a regular dream, not a message from beyond the grave!” Oh, Joe.)

WASHINGTON — It's said all too often that you can't argue with success. But you can. The argument: CBS is doing a disservice by airing so many crime dramas. The counter-argument: Doing a disservice to whom? CBS is the most-watched network in America. Precisely the point. The more people who watch, the more people can get drawn into a worldview that we live in dangerous places in a dangerous society.

It's true that Marshal Matt Dillon gunned down some outlaw virtually every week on "Gunsmoke" — another CBS program — and that series ran 20 seasons. But by the time the show premiered in 1955, the Old West was a thing of the past. All of CBS' crime series are set in the present day.

Let's look at all of the CBS crime shows that aired the week of Jan. 16-22: "CSI: Miami," "Hawaii Five-O," "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Criminal Minds," "Blue Bloods," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "The Mentalist," "The Medium," two installments of "CSI: New York" and two reruns as part of the network's "Crimetime Saturday" package.

MEDIUM revolves not only around the fact that Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette) is psychic, but that she has a family. For seven seasons, the audience has watched the Dubois daughters – sensitive Ariel, forthright Bridget and little Marie – grow up on camera. Likewise, actresses Sofia Vassilieva (Ariel), now eighteen, Maria Lark (Bridget), now thirteen, and identical twins Madison and Miranda Carabello (sharing the role of Marie), now eight, have spent a significant portion of their lives acting in the Dubois household.

The long-running MEDIUM airs its final new episode tonight on CBS. This interview was conducted while it was not known whether there would be an eighth season. Here’s what they had to say.

TV's best husband talks the end of the run, growing co-stars and Zack Snyder.



For seven years on MEDIUM, Allison Dubois, played by Patricia Arquette, has seen and heard dead people, an ability she’s used to help the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. Her three young daughters all share some version of her gift. The only person in the household who doesn’t have psychic qualities is husband and father Joe Dubois, played by Jake Weber. Joe may at times be bewildered, skeptical or even totally exasperated, but he is unshakably loyal and loving, attributes that have had the character rated in multiple polls as one of the best spouses on TV.

MEDIUM spent five years on NBC, ending on a cliffhanger on both sides of the camera before the series was picked up by CBS for another two seasons, which will come to an end this Friday night. This interview with Weber was conducted when it was not known whether an eighth season might be forthcoming. The actor, whose film career includes starring roles in U-571, WENDIGO and the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, sounds philosophical in any case.

GiveLove co-founders Patricia Arquette and Rosetta Getty, along with Jacqui Getty, welcomed guests to a private LA residence for the 1st Annual GiveLove to Haiti Dinner on Sunday, August 29th, 2010. The event’s mission was to raise awareness for GiveLove — a collaborative project to rebuild communities, homes and livelihoods for displaced Haitian earthquake survivors.

The exclusive dinner, which drew out “giving” celebs including Maria Bello, Odette Yusman, Rose McGowan and Rachel Bilson, featured Maestro DOBEL Diamond Tequila, which guests enjoyed throughout the nights. James Van Der Beek and “Brothers and Sisters” co-stars Dave Annable and Balthazar Getty all sported the Choose Haiti H.E.L.P. Bracelet, while they toasted Maestro DOBEL Diamond Tequila. The H.E.L.P. Bracelet which is created by Haitian artisans is available at BlanketAmerica.com; all funds for the bracelet and for the GiveLove event benefit the Haiti relief efforts.

After a yo-yo ride of breakup, then makeup and now divorce, Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane's relationship hasn't exactly been stable. But Arquette says the split isn't as acrimonious as one might assume...

"We're both really good," she told us last night at the Judith Leiber boutique in Beverly Hills, where she cohosted the Don't Forget Haiti benefit for Vital Voices.

Arquette insisted she and the Hung star remain friends. The pair, who were introduced by friends in 2001, got married four years ago and have a 7-year-old daughter together. About a year ago the Medium star filed a divorce petition, but the two eventually reunited. "I don't think people would even imagine that it could be so friendly and not weird," Arquette said. Sounds like we may be able to add them to our list of "Good" Hollywood Divorces".

PATRICIA ARQUETTE needed a clairvoyant to turn around her career in 2005 and she found just that in Allison Dubois, the humdrum housewife who solves major crimes with her dreams in the hit US series Medium. Up to then, Arquette was best-known for North-East director Tony Scott’s 1993 movie True Romance and others like Ed Wood and Disney’s Holes and her shortlived 1995 marriage to Nicolas Cage.

Now she’s an Emmy award-winning actress, who has just been commissioned to star in a seventh series of Medium, which has been treated disgracefully by the BBC (should Arquette have seen that coming?) with a scatter-gun broadcasting of the early series. Now Living is showing the latest episodes, which still command eight million viewers in the US.

“I had a feeling that women wanted to see something different. Different types of body shapes, different faces,” Arquette said of the success of Medium, which features her as a working mum with three daughters and a loving husband, Joe (Jake Weber). “She’s not some supermodel, but he’s hot for her and she’s hot for him. It’s a committed sexual marriage which you rarely see in film or TV,” is her summing up of the backstory.

Teenagers out of control! Now we're talking. Stories about dangerous, scary teens threatening adults have been a staple of B-movies and bad TV shows for decades. But recently, teens tend to be portrayed in a more pleasant light ("High School Musical," "Glee," the Justin Bieber phenomenon). So I was happy to see the scary-teen theme return with a vengeance in "Bond of Silence" (9 p.m., Lifetime), starring Kim Raver ("24").

Like many TV tragedies, "Bond" begins in yuppie heaven. Gorgeous wife Katy McIntosh (Raver) is preparing soup when her handsome and triathlete-running husband lawyer Bob (David Cubitt, "Medium") comes out of the shower and gives her a hug. What could go wrong?

Set against this scene of domestic bliss, a New Year's Eve party assembles across the street, teeming with underage drinkers and unsupervised youth. What could go wrong?
