20th Century Fox TV
Robin Williams’ biggest commitment to series television since the days of “Mork & Mindy” highlights a 20th TV slate that is deep, even if not necessarily brimming with international star appeal.
Williams is teaming with another recognizable face, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in the single-cam, father-daughter workplace comedy “The Crazy Ones,” from the pen of a scribe with no small amount of global cachet himself: David E. Kelley.
Kelley’s star Stateside hasn’t shined quite as brightly of late — “Harry’s Law” (NBC) lasted only two seasons, while “Monday Mornings” (TNT) didn’t make it past one, and half-hour isn’t exactly where the “Picket Fences” and “Ally McBeal” creator made his bones, but a series starring Williams in an accessible setting is filled with worldwide potential.
A slam dunk for interest is the limited-series return of Kiefer Sutherland in “24: Live Another Day.” The condensed format »

The Turner networks' upfront presentation to advertisers in New York City didn't have much in the way of news, but did reveal TNT plans to finally premiere Frank Darabont's "Lost Angels" (starring Jon Bernthal of "The Walking Dead" and formerly known as "L.A. Noir") in late 2013 and TBS is developing a reality show starring Oscar-winning "Juno" writer Diablo Cody.
TNT already made most of its notable programming decisions -- renewing "Dallas" and "Boston's Finest," cancelling "Southland" and "Monday Mornings" and ordering "The Last Ship" and "Legends" -- ahead of the upfronts.
But both TNT and TBS unveiled a laundry list of shows in development that may or may not ever see the light of day as pilots, let alone series.
Among those titles at TNT:
- "Portal House" executive produced by Steven Spielberg, about a group of young scientists who "stumble upon a portal into the time-space continuum"

The axoim what goes up must come down ” was certainly true this season for two of primetime’s heavyweight reality series.
Here’s a look at those who choked and those who smoked in the just-about-spent 2012-13 season:
This will go down as the year the Fox music contest came back to the pack — down 25% in adults 18-49 and 23% in total viewers on the heels of double-digit losses a year earlier. “Dancing,” meanwhile, has tumbled by 25% in the demo and 19% in total viewers.
NBC’s “The Voice” could be credited with contributing to the »

With the five major American TV network upfront presentations set to take place next week, each of them has been locking down their schedules for the new season.
That means the axe has fallen on numerous shows over the past 48 hours, while others have scored renewal orders. Decisions have also been made as to which pilots will be ordered to series. Here's the breakdown by network:
New Shows: Marvel's highly anticipated "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," the 'Once' spin-off "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," the Hannah Ware and Stuart Townsend-led murder thriller "Betrayal," the remake of »

Update: TNT has cancelled Monday Mornings after »
Monday Mornings follows the lives of the talented yet flawed doctors at the Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The title refers to the tough peer review meetings that are run by the hospital's sarcastic Chief of Staff. The cast includes Ving Rhames, Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan, Bill Irwin, Keong Sim, Sarayu Rao, Emily Swallow, and Alfred Molina.
The show started off the season with just 1.36 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That was less than half of what the Dallas premiere lead-in drew with 2.98 million and a 0.8 demo rating.
The numbers for Monday Mornings didn't get much better as the weeks wore on. The season ended up averaging just 1.39 million »

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 »

"Southland" is no more. The gritty police show has been canceled by TNT, which picked the series up after it was canceled by NBC, the cable network told TheWrap on Friday. The network also canceled the medical drama "Monday Mornings" on Friday. "Southland," which revolved around the Los Angeles Police Department, ran for five seasons. "TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew 'Southland' for another season. We are enormously proud of 'Southland,' which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made," the network said in a statement. "Executive producers John »

"Southland" has been canceled.
"TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew 'Southland' for another season," the network said in a statement. "We are enormously proud of 'Southland,' which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made ... We also want to thank the amazing cast for their impassioned, no-holds-barred performances, and the production team for their tenacity shooting on the streets of real-world Los Angeles. We wish everyone associated with 'Southland' the very best.
Hatosy and McKenzie tweeted to "Southland" fans mourning the end of the show:
A sad day for #Southland fans. Much appreciation to all the fans who supported us through 5 seasons; It's been an amazing creative journey.

TNT has pulled the plug on Monday Mornings. The medical drama lasted just one season on the cable network, limping out of the gate and never finding an audience. While the fate of fellow drama Southland was up in the air until Friday, Monday Mornings' fate has been sealed for months. The series, from David E. Kelly and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, opened to a dismal 1.34 million viewers -- and just 472,000 in the Turner network's coveted adults 25-54 demographic.

TNT has officially cancelled David E. Kelley/Sanjay Gupta’s Monday Mornings after one season. There was not much hope for the medical drama, which opened with an underwhelming 1.34 million viewers and ended its freshman run at the same level, with the finale drawing 1.37 million. But, like Kelley’s previous series, NBC’s Harry’s Law, Monday Morning quickly developed a small but devoted and passionate fan base. Monday Mornings, about the lives of a group of surgeons, starred Ving Rhames, Alfred Molina and Jennifer Finnigan. “(David E. Kelley, Bill D’Elia and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose novel the series was based) crafted a unique and powerfully moving drama full of memorable situations and characters brought to life by a terrific ensemble cast,” TNT said in a statement. “Unfortunately the show never built its audience enough to warrant its continuation.” Related: TNT’s ‘Southland’ Cancelled After Five Seasons »

Speaking of Morbidity & Mortality… TNT has opted not to renew the hospital drama Monday Mornings for a second season — news that comes on the heels of the cabler’s longer-running Southland getting the hook.
Sadly, @tntweknowdrama has decided to cancel #MondayMornings . Some things just don't make sense. Thanks to all the fans. So grateful for u!—

TNT has cancelled crime drama Southland (while calling it “one of the best police dramas ever made”) and freshman medical drama Monday Mornings. Southland aired five seasons, first starting out on NBC before switching to TNT, while Monday Mornings was a freshman show.
Here’s the network statements:
TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew Southland for another season. We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made. Executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco, along with creator Ann Biderman and our partners at Warner Bros. Television, have »

It is the end of the road for Southland after five seasons, one on NBC and four on TNT. The critically praised cop show has been a source of pride for TNT brass who rescued the series after NBC dropped it before Season 2. “TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew Southland for another season,” the network said in a statement. “We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made.” Southland most recently drew 1.8 million viewers for its fifth-season finale. With the end near, three of the show’s four main actors — Ben McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy — booked pilots, with McKenzie playing the male lead in a drama produced by Southland studio and TNT sibling Wbtv. There had been talk about about doing a movie or four-hour mini wrapping the story but insiders say the chances are slim as »

There's no word on the futures of Southland or Monday Mornings yet but TNT has picked up their reality series, Boston's Finest, for a second season. They've ordered six episodes this time, vs last season's eight installments. They'll start airing in early 2014.
Here's the press release:

TNT has greenlit spy drama Legends, starring Games of Thrones alum Sean Bean and executive produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary. TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the series, which is being produced by Fox 21, for a 2014 debut. (Watch trailer below) It joins another “popcorn” new TNT drama, the Michael Bay-produced The Last Ship, which was picked up yesterday. They will likely join the network’s Sunday lineup anchored by sci-fi drama Falling Skies. With the pickups done, TNT is now expected to move to cancelling Monday Mornings and Southland. Gordon, Cary and Jonathan Levin serve as executive producers on Legends, along with showrunners Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris. Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Mark Bomback serve as consulting producers. The pilot was directed and executive-produced David Semel and written by Nachmanoff, who developed the story with Gordon and Bomback. Based on the book by master spy novelist Robert Littell, »

As expected, TNT has renewed Dallas for a third season. No final decision on veteran Southland and freshman Monday Mornings, but neither is expected to be renewed. TNT will likely make the end of the two dramas official in the next two weeks as the cable network is gearing for its May 15 upfront presentation. Also likely coming up in the next week or so are the new TNT series pickups, with the Howard Gordon-produced Legends and Michael Bay-produced The Last Ship expected to get a nod. Produced by Warner Horizon Television, Dallas is a follow-up of the iconic 1980s series. TNT has ordered 15 episodes for the third season, which is slated to launch in early 2014. “Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J. »
