Memphis Beat: Canceled!

by at . Comments

TNT will not be revisiting Jason Lee and the southern precinct of Memphis Beat again: the network has canceled this drama after two seasons on the air.

“The network thanks everyone involved in the production of Memphis Beat for their work on the series, including the great cast and crew,” TNT said statement this afternoon.

This cancelation follows a similar fate for TNT's Men of a Certain Age and HawthoRNe, although the network does have a string of hits.

Rizzoli & Isles and Falling Skies fared very well this summer, while a second season of Franklin & Bash was ordered and The Closer returns on November 28.

    Memphis Beat was husband and I watched it together! Looked forward to it each week. It was original, funny, poignant and the music was an added bonus. BIG MISTAKE guys!!!! boo!


    You just can't stand to have a great show for every member of the family, of course you cancel it! Memphis Beat has been missed since the final show of last season. Why would you keep a show w/interesting plots, great music & character interaction? Dwight singing in a neighborhood style bar @ the end of the show was a must. Never liked Men of a Certain Age. You keep Franklin & Bash over Memphis Beat? Rizzoli & Isle & Leverage are good, not better than Memphis Beat. The Closer is great, oh yes, it is ending also. Hawthorne was okay if nothing else was on. Sounds like you might lose some viewers!


    One of your best shows has been cancelled. WHY!!


    T&t will never be taken seourisy because when thay come up with a good show like Memphis beat thay cancel it


    Finally get a program worth watching and you cancel it. I couldnt wait each week to see it. Jason Lee was awesome. Who ever made this move Sucks.


    A big mistake was made in cancelling such a good show. this was a show the entire family could watch together. They cancel good shows and keep ones that are not worth watching. Wish another network would pick up Memphis Beat.


    I loved Memphis Beat, me and my friends couldn't wait each week for it to air. I'm so sorry the show won't be on again. TNT In my opion made a mistake.


    I am so disappointed Memphis Beat has been was such a fun show, I enjoyed it very much. I looked forward to watching it every week. Who made the decision to cancel? Are there anymore episodes out there waiting to be aired? This needs to be re-visited and something needs to be done to bring this show back.....I have saved some of the episodes.....Please bring it back. There was a good chemistry between the actors, they seemed to enjoy what they were doing.......


    I actually liked Memphis Beat, it had that right blend of drama, humor, and southern wit that made the series what it was.


    What are you thinking? Memphis Beat is fantastic! Let's revisit this decision!!
