Southland: TNT Will Air Existing Episodes, No New Episodes Ordered - Featured

TNT has obtained the rights for the 13 existing episodes of Southland, including six that have never aired.

The 13-episode block will premiere on TNT on Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 10/9c. A TNT rep confirmed that the network will evaluate the performance of the show before deciding whether to order additional episodes.

"We're delighted that TNT has stepped forward to pick up Southland. We are all extremely proud of the show," said executive producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing).

NBC canceled the edgy cop series last month, before its second season premiered, claiming the show was too dark and gritty for its timeslot.

The show debuted in April 2009 on Thursdays at 10 p.m., the spot previously held by ER. With a ratings decline and the addition of Jay Leno's nightly prime-time show, the network had planned to air it on Fridays at 9 p.m.

WOOOOOO!!! I just hope TNT decides to order more episodes this show is to good to not be on the air. I would agree with the notion that the show is dark and too edgy for NBC Thursday time slot which also has 30 rock and The Office on those days. But all I can say is that I am extremely happy to hear this :)
