The U.S. TV drama “Southland” returns to TNT for another season. This show features the city of Los Angeles as well as the lives of the LAPD officers who fights crimes and keeps the order in the city. The third season of “Soutland” ends on Tuesday since they split the 13 episodes into two seasons. The show did not have much critical support and its ratings are not that spectacular, but that is enough for TNT to continue the show. The next season is to be announced soon. Although the ratings of “Southland” is not that strong except during the first part of the series, they still continue to have followers tuning on the show. The series averages around 2.9 million viewers, which is about 5% more than the previous season. In the studies, it showed that 1.3 million viewers tune in to that show each week, which is a good number.
Aside from “Southland”, TNT continues other TV series including “Men of a Certain Age” by comedian Ray Romano who it gives the network a high profit, the new show “Rizzoli & Isles” soared high during its opening week in July having 7.5 million viewers, and TV drama “The Closer” which stars Kyra Sedgwick still remains on top even if the show’s season is about to end.
TNT sees a bright future for the TV series “Southland” because of its talented cast and the network hopes to see some Emmy nominations or awards this coming season. Some of the show’s lead characters such as Michael Cudlitz and Ben McKenzie received good feedbacks from critics. LAPD detectives Regina King and Shawn Hatosy also showed promising performances.
The TNT show originally aired on NBC in 2009, but the network under the management of Ben Silverman thought that, despite getting good critics and reviews, it does not give the network any profit. In 2008 to 2009 season of the show, it only averaged around 2.8 ratings per eight share in the 18 to 49 demo, and only 8.4 million viewers tuned in during its first two weeks of airing. The show from Warner Bros. Television and John Wells Production thus moved to NBC and was changed from broadcast to cable.
A source said that they have reached the benchmark for the show and very proud of their achievement last season. The only thing that the producers of the show were waiting for is if TNT would take them back before it is too late. “Southland” was executive produced by Wells and Christoper Chulack.
