TNT has renewed gritty cop drama Southland for a 10-episode fourth season, the network announced Tuesday.
What's next for Southland? Our burning questions answered
"John Wells, Chris Chulack and their teams created a brilliant roller coaster ride this season, with countless riveting scenes and unforgettable character arcs," Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT said in a statement.
The roller coaster metaphor is apt...
Monica Potter, Eric McCormack
TNT will no longer put its trust in Trust Me.
The network pulled the plug on the freshman advertising drama Friday, according to The New York Times. The show, which starred Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh
as creative executives at an ad agency, received mediocre reviews for its premiere, which drew only 3.4 million viewers and lost half the audience of its The Closer lead-in. The following week, the numbers fell to 1.9 million viewers.

When last we saw Tommy Gavin (a very long 19 months ago), he was sitting next to his dead dad in the stands of a minor-league ballpark. He'll bury Michael Gavin tonight with his characteristic flair, then get on with his life. Priority No. 1: Deal with that Section 8 procedure Chief Feinberg has initiated against him. Why, then, is Feinberg acting so nice? Meanwhile, Colleen has a new boyfriend she doesn't want Tommy to know about, and so does Janet. Michael J. Fox guest stars.

8 pm/ET CW
Don't fear, the reaper is back — but he's out of work. Fans have waited since last May for the second season to begin, and it finally arrives tonight. Unfortunately, the vacationing Sam, Sock and Ben return from a little R & R to discover they have all been fired from the Work Bench. And to make matters worse, they've also been evicted from their apartment. One bright spot for Sock is that he learns he has a gorgeous stepsister (Eriko Tamura). And, of course, the Devil shows up with a helluva assignment for Sam.

Sarah Clarke, Trust Me
Suffice it to say that Sarah Clarke, aka 24's first and perhaps fiercest mole, always brings something special to every role. Currently, she's the missus of Eric McCormack's Mason on TNT's Trust Me (Mondays at 10 pm/ET), but don't write off her Erin Maguire as just any homemaker.
After the jump, Clarke teases changes to come for her Trust Me character, ponders her fate as Bella's mom in the blockbuster Twilight film series, and reveals whether she misses being nasty as 24's Nina.

House is my favorite show, but I am getting sick of this season's Thirteen-centered storylines. When will we see more of Wilson, who has been woefully underused? — Gillian
MATT: Personally, I'm (Olivia) Wilde for Thirteen, partly because her portrayer gives great quotes on the red carpet (and, ahem, is definitely not chilly). But I hear your woe, and can promise that Robert Sean Leonard has meaty stuff coming up later this season, only some of which has to do with Wilson's long-lost brother. Also, for what it's worth (and as hinted at this week), we'll also be spending a bit more time with Peter Jacobson's Taub.
I hear that either Hayden Panettiere or Ali Larter wants to be released from her Heroes contract. Is this true? — Brian
TIM: One of the key Heroes dies at the end of this volume, so that would be an easy out. But Larter ...
At first, Lie to Me's similarities to CBS' hit The Mentalist made it seem like the most likely winter show to shark-jump from the beginning. But it's actually pretty good. And so we turn our gaze to Trust Me. Despite the show's stellar cast — which includes Tom Cavanagh, Eric McCormick and Monica Potter — we have mixed feelings. Do you think Trust Me has potential?

The adventurous heroine of Ian Falconer's book series comes to life in a charming new animated series that debuts today. (Additional new episodes air all week.) Olivia is a curious, outgoing young pig with a vivid imagination. In the opener, that imagination has her worrying that her little brother is going to grow way too big, so she tries to stunt his growth. Then she has some friends over and creatively transforms her house into a make-believe hotel, complete with guest rooms and room service. —Jennifer Sankowski.

Tom Cavanagh, Trust Me
Are you buying what Tom Cavanagh and Eric McCormack are selling this Monday at 10 pm/ET? In the new TNT dramedy Trust Me, TV's former Ed Stevens and Will Truman play Connor and Mason, creative partners at a (modern day, ahem) ad agency. As the series kicks off, the buds' professional and personal bonds are tested by the departure of a cold body and the arrival of a hot blonde. Can TV's newest ad men draw eyeballs? Cavanagh gave us a sneak peek.
TVGuide.com: I think you and I last talked during your Love Monkey days.
Tom Cavanagh: That show [about an indie music label] was a massive success. [Laughs] But thank you for your support!
TVGuide.com: Better to have a show go off the air and have a few people saying, "Darn it," than...
Cavanagh: Yeah, we got that a lot. We shot it in New York, and ...
