Trivia

Southland premiered on NBC as the Thursday night, mid-season replacement for ER which had ended its long run in the spring of 2009. A critical success, Southland was picked up by NBC for the 2009-2010 season. Also in 2009, NBC's agreement with Tonight Show host Jay Leno ended and his 11:35PM time slot was given to Conan O'Brien, a clause that was a part of O'Brien's contract with the network. In a move to keep O'Brien and Leno, NBC created a new, nightly variety show at 10PM for Leno thus Southland lost its Thursday slot. Although Southland was tentatively moved to Saturday night at 10PM and was to premiere in October of 2009, NBC canceled the show before the show aired. TNT promptly picked-up the show and made it a part of its lineup of original programming. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, real Los Angeles thoroughfares or sections are named (e.g. Rodeo, Florence, Vermont), while scenery is nowhere near the real life locations. Even fictitious addresses aren't within the range seen on the real street (e.g. 1024 Rodeo Rd. can't exist on a street that only goes as far east as the 2000 West block). See more »

This show is my favorite show ever
14 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am going to school to be a police officer in WI. The pilot was so REALISTIC. Awesome. This show is probably going to let a lot of people know that being a police officer, Detective, or any job within the police is really just a job, an awesome one, like the FTO said "this is a front row show the greatest show on the earth..

I am a big 24 nut and I actually prefer watching southland.. cuts out all the bullshit.

I would have to say.. Really good acting especially on the FTO's behalf.. he did a great job at letting everyone watching what it is like to be a rookie police officer, and how hard it is to complete the training guidelines and pretty much be a prick to your trainee.

Keep it up... That pilot was amazing.
