    “Medium” was saved from NBC by CBS.
    “Conan O’Brien” moved from NBC to TBS.

    “Cougar Town” moved from ABC to TBS.
    Network TV is not a good home for dramas like Awake. AMC, HBO, Showtime, FX, TNT, Starz these are the channels viewers are increasingly turning to for serious storytelling.
