Last night an episode of Law & Order: SVU that had already aired on NBC on USA Network bested a new episode of Southland on TNT across-the-board.

With adults 18-49, the SVU rerun was 7% better (1.117 million vs. 1.043 million), with adults 25-54 SVU was 10% better (1.163 million vs. 1.059 million) and with total viewers it was also 10% better (2.517 million versus 2.280 million).

But  there’s at least a tiny silver lining for Southland fans.  Last night improved noticeably versus last week.    Last week Southland managed only a 0.7 rating with adults 18-49 (this week 0.8) and viewers grew too, from 1.86 million last week to 2.28 million this week.
