NBC (ended 2013)
|Southland has been canceled. Read about it here: NBC Shuts Down Southland. The good news? The show might go to cable. Personally, I'd rather watch the show on USA Network on a decent day with a decent timeslot anyway.|
I will watch this on any cable channel any day...but my only fear is that USA shows usually have cheesy effects/graphics so hopefully it ends up on TNT (Dark Blue? Seriously, this is 10x better) or better, F/X.

Great stuff Michael Cudlitz! Glad the actors are speaking out. I really, really hope some cable channel gets this show. It's too good to pass up. Wha bugs me now is that NBC didn't even give it a shot for season 2 and they already pulled the plug. Terrible NBC, just terrible...if it wasn't for the office and friday night lights, I wouldn't watch this network anymore.
|There's an excellent interview with star Michael Cudlitz at http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/10/09/southland-star-on-shows-axing-im-pissed-off/#more-3287, and I hope I'm not breaking some tv.com rule by saying so. He rips NBC a sorely-deserved new one.|
I am extemely dissappointed that they network has decided to cancel the show. This was a well written, well acted show with a terrific cast and the networks just don't give the shows a chance. This is why more and more people are going to the cable channels, better writing and it seems like the shows seems to favor a little better before they are cancelled in lieu of reality series or 5 solid hours of Jay Leno during prime-time....Yet another reason for me to jump ship from NBC....
Hopefully someone will be wise enough to pick the series up and run with it, instead of created CSI 15 or some crazy nonsense like that, humm maybe that is an idea, Let's just repackage Southland as another CSI, maybe then they can sell it!
|TNT might be Southland's new network. Talks between the two sides are advancing. Read more about it here: The Hollywood Reporter.|
This is great news and I'm confident this goes through! When it does, there are some things that need to happen:
1) I hope that since it's on cable, the production value doesn't drop, and it still has that same feel/look that it did on NBC.
2) They already have 6 episodes done, hopefully they don't wait too long (January at the LATEST) to start airing this
3) I hope it goes back to the original format and stops with the plan to follow only the main 2 beat cops and the two main detectives. The ensemble cast made this the best!
