Southland Moves to TNT

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, NBC, TNT-HD, News,

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.

So You Think You Can Dance

(You can view TV Envy’s Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 5/18)
  • 24 (FOX, 8pm):  Two-hour finale. “Jack reaches an emotional breaking point.” I would advise everyone to stay out of head-butting range from Bauer.
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 9pm):  Season premiere. “Jillian Harris, the 29-year-old Canadian who was a runner-up for the heart of 2009 Bachelor Jason Mesnick, gets a new perspective on the rose ceremony.” She plans on being much more selective about those she jumps into hot tubs with hands stems to.
  • Table for 12 (TLC, 9pm):  “The Hayes family embarks on a 420-mile road trip to Canada.” The free health care will make up for the cost in gas.
  • Gotti’s Way 2 (VH1, 10:30pm):  “While in therapy, Debbie realizes a need for boundaries on her relationship with Irv.” The audience at home will still be allowed full access though.
