TNT Cancels 'Southland' & 'Monday Morning'

It tucks, I know. I too was a fan of Southland. Great show all around - writing, directing, acting, cinematography, diverse cast, etc.

Southland

It tucks, I know. I too was a fan of Southland. Great show all around - writing, directing, acting, cinematography, diverse cast, etc.

But I'm not surprised. The drama series has been "on the bubble" at TNT (I mentioned this in a March post). And Regina King, who's one of the series' stars, recently expressed her uncertainty in its renewal for another season.

Dorian Missick, Bokeem Woodbine, Carl Lumbly, and Laz Alonso all have been recurring players in the series over its 5 seasons.

Word on the street is that while the show has been a critical darling for TNT, it just hasn't drawn the numbers they'd prefer, for it to justify its stay,

Secondly, and likely a drama that even fewer of you watched, TNT has also cancelled its medical drama series, Monday Mornings, which came from Emmy-winning writer-producer David E. Kelley and CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, on whose book the project is based.

Ving Rhames starred in the freshman drama, along with Alfred Molina, in a series set in a fictional Portland, OR hospital called Chelsea General, and followed the lives of doctors as they "pushed the limits of their abilities and confronted their personal and professional failings."

The series uses as a backdrop, the hospital’s Monday Morbidity and Mortality conference, considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine, where doctors gather for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.

Rhames played Dr. Jorge "El GatoVillanueva, the hospital's trauma chief, described as a "physically imposing former professional football player who now is the most celebrated trauma chief in the country."

The reason for the cancellation? What else? Ratings - averaging around 1.3 million viewers.
