Jay Mohr comedy among other TV pick-ups
Al Madrigal also star. Ed Yeager, Ric Swartzlander and James Burrows exec produce. “Worst Week,” from CBS Paramount and Universal Media Studios, scored some of the fall’s best reviews but has so far performed mildly on Monday nights. Show, exec produced by Matt Tarses, Marc Buckland, Jimmy Mulville, Garrett Donovan and Neil Goldman, stars Kyle Bornheimer, Kurtwood Smith, Erinn Hayes and Nancy Lenehan. “Medium” received a shortened 13-episode order for this season. But with several holes developing in NBC’s sked, Peacock probably anticipates a greater need for the show. “Medium” had originally been slated for Sunday nights when it returns, but could now conceivably air on Mondays — in the slot that will be vacated by the cancelled “My Own Worst Enemy.” Patricia Arquette stars in the CBS Paramount show, which is exec produced by Glenn Gordon Caron, Steve Stark, Kelsey Grammer and Ronald Schwary.
