LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC has renewed paranormal crime drama "Medium," sources said.

Details have not been determined, but the renewal is expected to be in the 13- to 18-episode range.

The Patricia Arquette-starring series has become a utility player for NBC -- a consistent, if modestly rated, performer and a reliable midseason backup.

On the eve of NBC's Monday programing presentation to advertisers, the network also picked up midseason cop drama "Southland" and was finalizing a renewal of midseason comedy "Parks and Recreation," starring Amy Poehler.

There is still no final word on NBC's two remaining "bubble" series -- modestly rated shows walking a fine line between renewal and cancellation -- quirky sophomore "Chuck" and veteran "Law & Order," which is looking to tie "Gunsmoke's" record run with a 20th season pickup.

Both series appear likely to return, but the decision probably won't be made until after the network's Monday presentation.

As for "My Name Is Earl," NBC and producer 20th TV have been engaged all weekend in negotiations for a full-season pickup of the comedy series.
