I'm sorry to hear about this too. I did like the show and the season (series) finale was good. I hope that another outlet picks it up.

'Southland' might have new home at TNT
By Nellie Andreeva

Four days after the abrupt cancellation of sophomore series "Southland" by NBC, chatter intensifies that the gritty cop drama may find a second home at TNT.

TNT was an obvious choice as it shares a corporate parent with Warner Bros. TV, which produces the critically praised series with studio-based John Wells Prods.

But sources on Monday indicated that talks between the two sides are advancing.

"We continually look at all programming opportunities that fit our portfolio of brands," TNT said in a statement.

"Southland," which stars Benjamin McKenzie, shot six episodes of its second season before being shut down by NBC last week.

TNT has been active in the cop drama genre, from its biggest hit, "The Closer" to its most recent offering, "Dark Blue," both from WBTV's sister Warner Horizon.

TNT has yet to decide on the future of "Dark Blue," which recently wrapped its first season.

I thin kthis would be a great fit for TNT, the only issue is will everyone, including Wells take the massive pay cut that it will require to make it happen.

DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Just had a flashback to "Johnny Dangerously": 'Iceholes' and 'fargin' and a few others.

I stand corrected. In that example, euphemisms are better than the actual words. :)

Yeah that Beckett, she's a card. :-) Now, had it been Nicki Heat, I don't think it would have been the door getting shut....<smirk>

I always liked BSG's use of the made up word "frak".
