    You can’t take the, current, best rated reality show and use it as an example. TV doesn’t work that way. On the reverse, should every drama be cancelled because it doesn’t reach True Blood or The Walking Dead- esque numbers? No, that’s not the reality of the business. And you note, I wasn’t comparing it to Duck Dynasty, or The Voice. But House Hunters. On HGTV. Yeah, it’s “on par” with that.

    And none of the shows you mentioned get anywhere near the “modest” (and again I’m being kind) demo and viewership totals that SouthLAnd is getting. Even scaled down to a cable level. If any of those received a down from last season ~.5 demo and ~1.5 mil viewership in its now fifth season (fandom aside) where growth is highly unlikely, even with a reboot, it would get the axe too.

    Also, a reboot would not work at all. There’s no incentive for TNT to cast it. And the budget is already at bare minimum levels, reportedly. A lot of the cast, again reportedly, are taking less money for their “passion project.” Also, the potential fan backlash… i.e. I won’t watch SouthLAnd without Regina, for example… makes it too risky for execs. Not to mention, as Regina herself stated the promotional budget has not been there this year. To execute a reboot, TNT would have to dump additional funds (already not available) to promote it. Sorry, but a reboot is not going to happen, realistically. For everyone wanting to see season 6 of SouthLAnd, hope that somehow Netflix gets involved a la The Killing. As I mentioned before, it totally sucks but great shows get the axe due to financials/ people’s preference.

    About the only person leaving who would cause me not to watch Southland would be Michael Cudlitz because he is the heart of the show. I really don’t think the “if so and so leaves, they’ve lost me as a viewer” applies here because the story is about everybody. In fact, when they showed Regina King’s ex-partner last week, I’d completely forgotten he was ever on it. People come and go. Who would have thought originally that John and Ben wouldn’t be partners for the whole show?

    I can’t imagine that TNT would be dumb enough to cancel this show – they’ve cancelled others that I really liked, like Memphis Beat, but Southland is so different from anything else – so much more intense – that a small but devoted group of viewers should be able to keep it going.

    Last week’s show was the MOST intense thing I think I’ve ever seen on TV and if TNT has THAT kind of nerve, they shouldn’t shy away from some low ratings.
