NBC's Southland Gets Canceled

The O.C. alums are not having much luck in television this season. First, Mischa Barton’s The Beautiful Life gets canceled after a two-week run, and now Southland, which stars Benjamin McKenzie, has gotten canned.

The NBC drama was canceled last night because of poor ratings, but producer John Wells doesn’t seem to think this is the end quite yet. He says he’s going to start shopping the show around to other networks.

Wells said in a statement, He says, "I'm disappointed that NBC no longer has the time periods available to support the kind of critically-acclaimed series that was for so many years, a hallmark of their success. We remain extremely proud of Southland and are actively looking for another home for the series."

It has happened before, so it’s not totally out of the question. But this was a long time ago. The last time a show got canceled and hoped to find a new home was earlier this year with My Name Is Earl. Unfortunately, it looks like Southland may be done for good.
