    I'm not a Rizzoli and Isles fan myself, but those who are might be interested in King, a Canadian series premiering tonight on Reelz. (Channel 238, 10PM EDT) Looks like the show originally aired north of the border in 2011.

    "The show’s creators [...] appear to be trying for something that has the breezy jokiness of the summer crime dramas on TNT and USA but with a little more substance and grit. They make a good-faith effort to avoid one-dimensional characters and pat, sentimental conclusions, and “King” is slightly wittier and more interesting than shows like “White Collar” or “Rizzoli & Isles.” That isn’t saying a whole lot, though, and the final result is just about as formulaic as those American counterparts.

    I'll give it a try... Just saw this today and see that they are not re-airing the first episode though.

    It was sort of cliched, but I enjoyed it as summer fare. Same as Rookie Blue.

    I was wondering the same.

    I watched the show and enjoyed it as well.
