On Gear Live: Tidal Force Wave 5 headphones review

Southland's Benjamin McKenzie isn’t only a place for countless Law & Order reruns. The cable channel is now home to another former NBC show.

Starting early next year, TNT will officially begin airing episodes of Southland, the John Wells-produced drama starring The O.C.‘s Benjamin McKenzie.

Despite critical acclaim and an October start date, the program was pulled from NBC just weeks before it was set to return. Now the entire series - including Season 1 and the unaired episodes from Season 2 - will have a new opportunity.

“This is a great win for fans of Southland and a perfect opportunity to introduce the series to new viewers,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, said in a statement. “It’s also another outstanding example of how TNT has established itself as the go-to place for the best dramas on television.”

will debut on January 12.

  • The Closer (TNT, 9pm):  “Brenda reopens a murder case when it’s surmised that a father may have offered a false confession to cover for his schizophrenic son.

MONDAY (7/13)
  • Great American Road Trip (NBC, 8pm):  New day. “The six remaining families hit the road, leaving the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and skirting through Missouri, where they land in Branson to perform skits before crooner Andy Williams and comic Yakov Smirnoff.” Apparently, the families also journey back several decades.
  • Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Amy needs assistance with her chaotic schedule, so her dad and sister lend her a hand.” When the supportive applause died down, she put the baby back to sleep.

  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In this drama focusing on the lives of teen gymnasts who strive to make it to the Olympics, new girl Emily Kmetko begins training alongside veterans who are both impressed with and threatened by her.” This could bring a whole new definition to the term “punch front.”
  • Run’s House (MTV, 10pm):  “The family rallies around JoJo after he’s charged with marijuana possession.” This whole time they had a connection within the home.
