In the upcoming fourth season of "Medium," Allison (Emmy winner Patricia Arquette) and her family's world is turned upside down after her abilities are publicly exposed, resulting in sweeping changes both professionally and personally. For the past three seasons, Allison has served as a part-time consultant to the district attorney's office in Phoenix, Arizona, using her psychic abilities to solve violent and horrifying crimes that have mystified authorities, including her now former boss D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval, "The Division") and others within the criminal justice system.

Academy Award-winning screen legend Anjelica Huston ("Prizzi's Honor") will guest-star this season as Cynthia Keener, an investigator for a national firm called "Ameritips," who strikes an unusual professional arrangement with Allison for her crime-solving abilities.

Jake Weber ("Meet Joe Black") stars as Allison's exceptionally supportive husband Joe, also left looking for work after recent traumatic events. Sofia Vassilieva ("Eloise at the Plaza") and Maria Lark ("10.5") star as Ariel and Bridget, the two eldest DuBois children, who both share their mother's psychic gift to varying degrees. David Cubitt ("10.5: Apocalypse") stars as Detective Lee Scanlon and Madison Carabello plays the DuBois' youngest daughter, Marie.

Caron is creator and executive producer. Kelsey Grammer ("Girlfriends"), Steve Stark, Rene Echevarria and Oscar winner Ronald L. Schwary ("Ordinary People") are executive producers. "Medium" is produced by Picturemaker Productions, Inc. in association with CBS Paramount Network Television and Grammnet Productions.

NBC's reality series "The Baby Borrowers" is an intriguing new social experiment based on the hit British program that asks five diverse teenage couples -- ages 18-20 -- to fast-track to adulthood by setting up a home, getting a job and becoming caring parents first to babies, toddlers, pre-teens and their pets, teenagers and senior citizens -- all over the course of three weeks.

Through this emotional, dramatic journey, each young couple will get a unique opportunity to peer into the future and see what they (and their partners) might be like if they remain together and decide to build a family. Tested by the everyday ups and downs of taking care of others and maintaining a relationship, most of the teens find themselves looking at all of their relationships and notions of parenthood in a new light.

"The Baby Borrowers" is produced by Love Productions. Richard McKerrow (the U.K.'s "Cirque de Celebrite") and Tom Shelly ("Survivor") are executive producers. "

The Guinness Book of World Records - Live!" special will feature a countdown to the craziest world records held in history leading up to a live, death-defying stunt never seen before on television. "The Guinness Book of World Records - Live!" is produced by True Entertainment.

"Top 100 Most Outrageous Moments" is a fun-filled special featuring 100 of the most outrageous moments of all time. It's the ultimate countdown to the best of the best clips that will keep viewers laughing out loud for hours. Clips include viewer submissions, TV show bloopers, games show flubs, classic outrageous moments and all-new never before-seen moments. "Top 100 Most Outrageous Moments" is a follow-up to NBC's successful "Outrageous Moments" franchise. "Top 100 Most Outrageous Moments" is produced by Scott Satin ("Who Wants to Be a Superhero?").
