Glad to see this happen. If the show had stayed on NBC, it might have been cancelled before the second season ended. It's also ironic that by the time TNT was able to air Southland, The Jay Leno Show was practically history.

Between Law & Order, Southland, and Conan, NBC has done a great job in building both TNT and TBS. Too bad Comcast/GE owns neither.

Any guesses on which cast members won't return because of other commitments, or because the money is too small/episodes too few? Gotta have Michael Cudlitz and Ben McKenzie, because while Officer Ben may have figured out his mentor is a drug addict, he still hasn't figured out Cooper admires his ass in those tight pants, and I want to see how that goes down. OTOH, if Detective Sammy's wife mysteriously disappeared, I wouldn't be heartbroken.

Because, despite an interesting premise, Kings had the personality of Shakespeare painted onto fresco.
