Meanwhile, Closer offshoot Major Crimes will wrap Aug. 19 and finish up its second season with a run of episodes beginning in November. The Eric McCormack-starring Perception, which goes on hiatus after Aug. 27, will unspool the rest of its second season after the new year.

    Looks like King & Maxwell and Franklin & Bash are goners!! Glad these shows survived, along with Falling Skies and Dallas to come back in 2014!!

    • Meghan says:

      too bad, I loved King & Maxwell. but it didn’t get much press, so it’s not too surprising.

    • Cody says:

      Franklin and Bash didn’t get picked up until long after everything else last year, I think still might have a shot

    • F&B is very underrated , I will miss it ,if it gone

    • chris says:

      I love F&B. K&M got better and better. Hope both of them return.

    • sally says:


      • Barb C says:

        Perception is boring….get rid of it and make sure Franklin and Bash continue !!!

        • TV for me is disappearing. I got in late on Franklin & Bash so glad I didi, takes a lot to make me laugh, now its gone.

          Now please, Major Crimes, I love the actors but no Brenda Lee Johnson why save this, I watched everyweek and well what can I say. Fritz is going in the right direction lol.

          For Bates Motel love the actors but no more.

          I LOVE Robin Williams but I’m afraid these younger people won’t get his humor, way out humor us older folks love, I’m praying.

          I could go on but for it’s not the same everynight my TV stood ready but now??

          Believe it or not to get my laughs I’m watching yes watching SENFIELD everynight on TBS

          There’s something wrong here!!

    • Frank Eveans says:

      My name is ANITA , from U.S.A am 25 years old i got married at the age of 24 i have only one child and i was living happily .After one year of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange and i don’t really understand what was going on, he packed out of the house to another woman i love him so much that i never dream’s of losing him, i try my possible best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail i cry and i cry seeking for help i discussed it with my best friend and she promise to help me he told me of a man called Dr NICE OKSE, he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love issues he cannot do that is why they call him Dr NICE OKSE. I contacted his email address at ( And i told him everything that happen all he told me is that i should not worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after 3days my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happen i was very surprise and very, very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again. So my advice for you now is to contact this same email address:(, if you are in any kind of situation concerning love issues and any other things that give you problems. THANKS..

  2. King & Maxwell Fan says:

    Ahhhh, I love King & Maxwell! Still will keep my fingers crossed (and toes)…

    • Mel says:

      I thought King & Maxwell was pretty good, and I can’t believe they would not renew F&B. I refuse to be a negative Nelly. Only positive thoughts! I am glad about Perception; hubby and I really like that show.

  3. Flowbee Rida says:

    While I am not optimistic about F&B or King and Maxwell, its true F&B was renewed very late in the game, and K&M is also a new show, so i am thinking it’s less “automatic”. That being said, TNT continues to prove itself to be less savvy with shows like those than their counterparts at USA….not a diss per se, but an observation….

  4. Eric7740 says:

    Woo-hoo!!! More RIzzoli & Isles and Major Crimes!!!

  5. Alichat says:

    Hmm….Major Crimes has been disappointing this season. I hope that run of episodes in November fixes that, but I highly doubt it.

    • cookie kirk says:

      I’m with you I am getting really tired of the Rusty story that has gone nowhere. I can’t wait for Sharon to run into Rusty’s ex girlfriend and she tells Sharon the real reason they broke up. That. he has been getting those letters and no one knows. Sharon has been keeping him safe and he’s betraying her. So when this sociopath comes after him he’ll probably kill him. Loved when sharons ex returned.

      • Alichat says:

        I think Rusty is the most compelling character on the show, and they’ve absolutely wasted that story. The writing has been lazy, especially regarding the letters. When the show started, Rusty was aggravating and annoying, but they were able to develop him into an interesting, layered character. Then cut to this season, and they started off pretty good with the threatening letters and the fear he will be moved from Sharon’s care, and then it just went downhill. All of these letters, as far as we know, are going through DCS before being given to Rusty. Why are they still being sent to him? Do the writers want us to believe that Sharon is so stupid and absentminded that she wouldn’t tell his social worker that the letter was threatening, and if any others appear, they should be forwarded to the major crimes team immediately? The social worker hasn’t found it odd that he’s gotten 11 of them without an explanation as to who it is? “Rusty, is your father contacting you? Is this your mother contacting you? Who is this person that keeps sending you letters?” Nothing. No one in major crimes has asked if he’s gotten anymore? I just find that to be very lazy writing. They’ve had a few good scenes between Rusty and Sharon, but never really expanded on them. It wasn’t until this last episode that we finally got a decent answer to why he’s been acting so weird. And this new ADA was a pointless addition. Why would you add Sykes last season, then do absolutely nothing to expand her character? Instead we’ve been subjected to this clueless, whiny character. I’d rather see Sachez hook up with Sykes than this woman. And I was disappointed in how they handled the exit of Berenger’s character, in that what Sharon did to him was so 180 from her character. It was a Brenda move, not a Raydor move.

        • elr says:

          I agree with everything you wrote. I’m particularly annoyed with the new APA. They seem to give her more screen time than anyone else, and she is nothing but a whiny, clueless, nincompoop who doesn’t deserve to be there.

        • Diane Brand says:

          Agree with you about Rusty — he is a fascinating character who has developed slowly but with purpose and direction. I always care what’s going on in his life. We in this country, and in the world for that matter, have so many lost young people who are worth saving… Rusty is one of those kids. Agree with you about Sykes… she deserves much more space and time than she’s getting. A match between Sanchez and Sykes is something I hadn’t considered but is definitely worth exploring. I adore the entire team of detectives, and Sanchez certainly needs a love interest… Agree that Tom Berenger got the shaft — would like to see him continue to maintain a presence in Sharon’s life. He was one of the handsomest of his generation (nothing lasts forever). I found him to be a sympathetic and loveable character in spite of his issues. He was very good for Rusty, and I certainly didn’t agree with some viewers who thought he could be the one writing the Rusty letters — what a ridiculous thought (lousy detecting). Think the ADA is playing her part as intended — not the actresses’ fault that no one likes her… and she’s getting better. I liked what she said to the judge in the next to last episode — that if they had acted sooner, a life would have been saved, and even though it was the life of a criminal, it was still a life. The judge didn’t agree, but I thought she had something there… a big plus for her and the growth of her character!

  6. Tina says:

    Love Perception so cool about that, keeping my fingers crossed for King & Maxwell

    • Diane Brand says:

      Love Perception and Major Crimes… Also keeping by fingers crossed for KING & MAXWELL — and excellent show… Please bring it back, TNT!

  7. mac says:

    The shows on this show I care least for got renewed…if Franklin and Bash is going so am I. They didn’t renew Leverage last year, if F&B falls victim to TNTs horrible decision making process I might finally be able to say goodbye for good to this network

    • mac says:


    • Cassie says:

      I’m still reeling over the loss of Southland. The fact that it had come off it best season yet IMO made the news even harder to take.

      • b cap says:

        I agree. southland was the best cop show on television. I thought tnt was smart for picking it up when it was cancelled on regular television, and all of a sudden, after its best season it is gone?? also I had a beef about getting rid of Monday mornings. I think it should have been rolled out in the summer when they usually start new shows, they didn’t even give it a chance. the characters were just starting to fill out, and become funny, sad etc, like all of david Kelley’s shows. I wasn’t that fond of king and Maxwell because of Rebecca roman..bad actress.

        • ivbc11 says:

          I also say get rid of southland and keep dallas??? let’s talk about 80’s drivil

        • Diane Brand says:

          I can’t believe they cancelled Southland — an exceptional cop show! And they left it in a dark and terrible place — how can they do that? A very poor decision — TNT is known for those types of decisions, especially when it comes to outstanding shows that don’t live up to ratings expectations. Cable television is the one venue that has the opportunity and responsibility to provide courageous, visionary, and cutting edge programming… when TNT bails on excellent shows, it’s always a major disappointment. I don’t expect them to be as susceptible to ratings, politics, and viewer negativity as the networks are. The most important viewers on cable TV are those who are passionate and committed to fighting for superior programming and, of course, include the broadest possible base I’m extremely sad that so many channels (for example, A&E, Court TV, Bravo, and even The Animal Planet) that began as venues for educational and exceptional quality programming have turned to shows that now seem exclude such content altogether.

  8. Abbie says:

    Yay for Major Crimes!

  9. Cherry says:

    I really lost interest with Major Crimes, it got a little tedious after the first couple of episodes. I was worried about Perception, but it really is a clever, fun show! – I wish they’d renew King & Maxwell! I need more Rebecca Romijn in my life.

  10. MoshiMoshi says:

    fingers crossed for Franklin & Bash!

  11. Brooke says:

    So glad about Rizolli & Isles. I love this show, and it’s quite a treat watching two female best friends solving crimes together. That’s not so common on TV!

  12. raiza says:

    Good for both shows though Major Crimes has been a bit of a let down..even misused Doris Roberts and all that great cast episode..and yeah for Sasha, got a girl crush on her. :)

  13. Astrid says:


  14. Babygate says:

    Not surprised about Rizzoli and Isles. It is consistently on the top of the most-viewers list. Major Crimes is not doing anywhere near as well as The Closer but it looks like it’s solid enough, even though it skews older. I am kind of surprised about Perception. It has not been doing all that well. As far as King and Maxwell, I would not expect it to be renewed. It has performed even worse. I wanted to really like this show but there is no true chemistry between Jon and Rebecca. Their banter always feels forced. And the ‘savant’ they have working for them freaks me out with the greasy hair, the oversized, ridiculous glasses and that god-awful vest. The optics are not very aesthetically pleasing.

  15. Kate Garner says:

    Well, I hope King & Maxwell do see a season two. I like the cast and I ADORE Edgar!

  16. Brandy says:

    Happy for Rizzoli &Isles

  17. S. says:

    They’ve got to renew King and Maxwell. I really like it. I wasn’t sure when I started watching, but its gotten better, the chemistry of the cast is starting to shine through, and they’ve gotten me hooked on the whole Ritter mystery.

    • Cindy says:

      I totally agree!! We loved this show, and Edgar became a big part of what we loved about it. Really hope the powers that be bring it back.

  18. Leah says:

    love r&I & f&b. the lead in major crimes annoys me in the commercials, I can’t even imagine watching the show. the other one, I watched the first episode and wasn’t impressed. I MIGHT watch perception again eventually.

  19. Jon says:

    I love Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes. I never miss an episode of each. Perception, however, meh. Could never get into it.

  20. Vanka says:

    I can’t believe F&B might be gone. Heather Lockear has had so much bad luck in this past few years. I hope it gets renewed.

  21. Kim R says:

    So glad Major Crimes and Rizzili and Isles are coming back. We also like King and Maxwell and LOVE Edgar so are hoping for the best. :)

  22. Elyse says:

    I love Franklin and Bash!!!! I hope it gets picked up for next summer!

  23. Jared says:

    King and Maxwells total viewers are close to Perceptions but it’s the demo that’s killing that show. I dont expect it to get a renewal.

  24. Maryann says:

    I love Perception and Falling Skies and I’m glad they got renewed. Now if King & Maxwell could just get a pickup, I would be quite happy with TNT.

  25. TV Line “Jane and Maura will take break after Sept. 10 and return in early 2014.”

    TV Guide “Rizzoli & Isles is the No. 1 basic cable series of the summer to date and will conclude on Sept. 14, ”

    Tsk, tsk. TV Guide got it wrong.

  26. as Walter said I am impressed that anybody able to profit $4307 in 1 month on the internet. have you read this site.>>>

  27. Justin says:

    Sounds good. I like all three. Now if TNT would renew King &Maxwell, I’d be completely happy.

  28. K. says:

    I really hope they renew King and Maxwell I love that show! For me they could have let Falling Skies go, it was really a bad season for it!

  29. Joey says:

    I hope Franklin and Bash gets renewed for season 4.

  30. Hermione Granger says:

    RIZZZZZZZZLES. Whoooooo-hooooooo!

  31. Andy says:

    I’m enjoying Perception and am happy that it’s getting a third season, and I’m planning on getting to Rizzoli & Isles at some point, so I’m glad that it’s staying, but some more King & Maxwell would be great. It was an enjoyable season and with the book series for ideas, there is a lot more story right there that can be told.

  32. 3dhouseofmagic says:

    Franklin and Bash is sooo underrated! The comic chemistry between the two is so great, it just makes me happy to watch it. I will say the finale last night was a bit boring – but it could have been a tidy tie-up in case it isn’t renewed. Hoping for good news!

  33. I’m sooooooooooo happy about all three shows!

  34. twilight123 says:

    I’m excited for Rizzoli & Isles. Now all I need is a pick-up for Franklin & Bash!! C’mon! Zach Morris and Tyler from Clueless grow up and become lawyers together! It’s like the world’s best fanfiction, except it’s real.

  35. Kasper says:

    I really hope Franklin & Bash gets picked up. It’s the only TNT show I watch!

    • Rukia says:

      I love this show! I really hope that this is not the end for Franklin & Bash. I hope TNT get a move on and renew Franklin & Bash for a 4th season. Heather Locklear is probably the reason the shows ratings have declined. They need to ditch Heather and then they’ll see ratings improve. So happy that TNT picked up Perception for a 3rd season but they better renew Franklin and Bash.

  36. Yayyy! for both Perception and Major Crimes ! Love them both so much !

  37. RobMF says:

    I got my hopes up for Franklin and Bash and almost threw a glass at the wall when I didn’t see it. Now that I’ve calmed myself down with some meditation… please TNT renew the brilliant Franklin & Bash.

  38. greysfan says:

    Very happy about all 3 :)

  39. Ethel says:

    Rooting for King and Maxwell as it did end on a cliffhanger of sorts. Guess Jon Tenney might be back on Major Crimes sooner than later.I surely hope not, though as I really like this scruffy look more than the suit and tie.

  40. Hepha says:

    Congrats to Rizzoli & Isles which is rock solid and a pleasure to watch !

  41. Justin Burnell says:

    Reblogged this on thehiltonburnellfiles and commented:
    Happy for Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes!!!!

  42. Rachel says:

    Franklin and Bash is hilarious, I hope that TNT doesn’t get rid of it, I just got into it!

  43. Georgia says:

    I am not giving up hope that King & maxwell and Franklish & Bash won’t be renewed. They are terrirfic shows! Never miss an episode! Fingers crossed!

  44. Bella says:

    I’m happy about these, but am really hoping that King & Maxwell gets renewed, too. It wasn’t promoted much, but if it were, it would really find an audience.

  45. Bob Axsom says:

    King & Maxwell became my favorite show on TV during the short “season”. The cast evolved as the season progressed and there is a warm chemistry developing with trust, expertise, honor, support and all the good things that we need to foster in society and Maxwell is by far the most beautiful and tall actress across all shows – TV or movies. When in the last show she showed her distress privately with no words at being on a road that would force her to give up on one of her two future career options … well, it was deeply felt and would melt the heart of a stone man. Sean is a really good partner in the detective business and EGAR IS OUTSTANDING!

    • Becky Ward says:

      We especially love Edgar.
      We have a high-functioning autistic grandson and appreciate a show sharing the intelligence in someone “different” – warms the heart!

  46. Kathy Dennis says:

    So glad R&I waas renewed, one of my favorite shows. please reconsider and renew King and Maxwell.

    I got married in 2009 and since then we had no children. Due to this and several other reasons, me and my spouse were always quarreling and fighting and I was regretting seriously ever getting into that marriage. I believed that something spiritual was affecting my marriage and I later confirm with the belief that a spiritual husband was involved somewhere. By this time, my marriage was on the verge of collapse. But when I say a testimony about one D.RRIVERSHEBALIST spell caster on the internet so he told me the problem is over after the spell have be cast, my understanding / mindset started changing, especially when I got the reading and the casting was completed : Spiritual Warfare, Back to Sender ;revolutionized my mindset and whole – being. I then called my wife and reconciled with her. I taught her what I learnt from the spell caster D.RRIVERSHEBALIST and your messages and now the result is a happy marriage. There is now peace in my home and my business has been revived. My wife is finally pregnant and we are expecting our first baby with joy.HELP ME To THANK D.RRIVERSHEBALIST for the joy and happiness he brought to my him

    server you would like to be administrator on, and then this tool will
    let you to do so! This device is extremely basic to use, and
    in this publish I will be displaying you how to use it!

    Just Stick to the instructions below!

    1. You need to obtain the Force OP from the url under.

    2. The following action would be to extract it from the ZIP file to your desktop or
    wherever you want it…
