“Southland” renewed for third season


*Despite modest ratings, “Southland” has been renewed for a third season by TNT, the cable network that picked up the drama after NBC cancelled it last October. TNT has given the green light to 10 episodes of the critically acclaimed John Wells cop drama, which will begin airing next January, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “’Southland’ is a challenging, visceral show that engages viewers with its immersive style, provocative storylines and complex characters,” said Michael Wright, head of programming for TNT. “These qualities have made ‘Southland’ a favorite among critics and appointment viewing for an extremely loyal audience.” TNT points out that “Southland,” co-starring Regina King, gains about 50% more viewers via DVR time shifting, which is above average. In live-plus-same-day ratings, the final episodes of the show averaged about 2.2 million viewers. The show averaged 2.7 million viewers for the season once seven-day DVR gains are added.
