TNT renews 'Southland'

Miracles do happen. Just seven months after NBC chose to cancel it before showing a single minute of a Southland3 seven-episode second season that was already paid for, cop drama Southland has been renewed by TNT.

TNT, which earlier this year aired the episodes that NBC tossed in the dumpster, was pleased with the Nielsen results. Southland averaged 2.7 million viewers per episode, decent enough by cable standards. Better yet, more than half of them were in the 18-to-49 age demographic that advertisers like; with a median age of 47, the Southland audience is the youngest of any TNT original series.

TNT ordered 10 new episodes for the third season, which kicks off in January 2011.
