Just two weeks prior to the October 23 debut of Southland, NBC pulled the plug on this NBC drama. Much to the chagrin of Michael Cudlitz, who played Ben McKenzie's partner on the series. He Tweeted:

"Don't go quietly. People need to know when they f--k up this big. Saw ep 2.1...Dumb f--king people. Call NBC and ask them where the promos are. I am serious."

Earlier this week, CBS announced full-season orders for NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife.

Cougar Town Quotes

Laurie: Jules told me never to ask, but why do you call me Jellybean?
Ellie: Well JB, when Jules first hired you I thought you were so simple minded she could convince you that Jellybeans were more valuable than gold and subsequently pay you in Jellybeans. This concept was eventually shorted into your nickname, Jellybean.

Grayson: You can't stand to be along for a second can you?
Jules: That is ridiculous
Grayson: So why did you go out with father time?
Jules: Because I am a history buff and I haven't been in a car with only a lap belt in a long time
