Good News for Southland Fans

TNT has renewed the show for a third season, set to premiere in January of next year. I’m so thrilled that this superbly written series, with one of the best ensemble casts currently on television, has survived after changing homes from NBC to TNT. As you may or may not remember, Southland aired one season on NBC and then was dumped due to the now infamous 10 PM Jay Leno Experiment. TNT swooped in and saved the day by picking up the show, re-aired the first season and debuted the show’s second season.

If you haven’t already checked out this gripping drama, you absolutely need to. Here’s a little promo clip from last season…

  • NBC recently announced their new “artist in residence” program, and appointed rocker Jon Bon Jovi as the first artist. What does that mean? Who the heck knows…but it’s only a matter of time before he shows up on 30 Rock…a little thing called “synergy”. — The NY Observer
  • Speaking of 30 Rock, it was finally announced that Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will co-host the next Oscar telecast, airing in March.  Okay, good, I’m glad that’s been settled, now we can move on to other earth-shattering stuff. —  Variety
  • Remember how distraught I was that NBC canceled Southland? Well, TNT was obviously upset too, because they picked up the show.  THANK YOU, TNT! — Entertainment Weekly
  • Kirstie Alley, how do you do it? How do you continue to get TV shows made about you? Scripted, reality, skinny, not skinny, blonde, brunette, it doesn’t matter. You are an enigma. — Radar Online
  • Here’s a little dose of awesome:  Comedy Central has given The Onion the go-ahead to work on a pilot for a scripted series inspired by The Onion’s online sports network. —  Entertainment Weekly
