TNT, who are just great, great people, have rescued Southland, the cop drama NBC tossed out so it could focus on lesbian super heroes and Jay Leno. Now, TNT has the rights to rebroadcast the seven-episode first season, along with the six-episode second season that had been produced before NBC pulled the plug. TNT is playing things safe. They’ll wait to see how the show does before deciding on whether or not to move ahead with new episodes. But on a network on which Kyra Sedgwick has played a sassy, tough-as-nails police detective for more than four years, I’m not sure how the show wouldn’t be able to find an audience. As with all things, time will tell. Southland will premiere on TNT on January 12.
