Ben McKenzie: Two Million Viewers for 'Southland' Season Finale

Ben McKenzie: Two Million Viewers for 'Southland' Season Finale

Ben McKenzie keeps it casual as he heads to new Hollywood hotspot Trousdale on Tuesday (April 6).

The 31-year-old actor’s show, Southland, ended its second season on Wednesday (April 6) with 2.07 million viewers on TNT! That’s consistent with what ratings were the week before, according to TV By The Numbers.

“We all hope we can make more of it,” Ben wrote on his TVGuide.com blog. “But at this point, the decision is out of our hands. The ratings have been solid (particularly the DVR numbers), but not spectacular. It is up to TNT to decide whether there will be more Southland.”

    I hope TNT has the sense to renew it Season 2 has been so good but very short, I don’t know what NBC were thinking.

    The ratings have been steady week after week, what more do TNT want?!, tell me they are renewing and I can breath easy once again!.

    On a really shallow note Ben looks mighty fine in the cop uniform especially when he is holding a baby, like on Tuesday’s epi!!, he also looks great in those photos above.

    Well that article is right…. Men of a Certain Age and Southland are absolute must sees!!!

    Fingers crossed for a renewal….they could trim the fat and that would help with viewers.. Tammy, bye, bye!!!

    Glad to see Men getting so much love. That is my #1 pick for the season and I had no idea it was doing so well.

    I simply cant say enough good things about this show, the performance week in and out has been consistently of excellent awesome quality. i figured someone knows a good thing when its staring them in the face when it came back.
    i pray they still do. the character are already old friends its simply one of the best shows on tv at the moment

    Southland is one of Steven Spielberg’s favorite shows. He calls it “genius” and I agree with him.
    TNT must renew this great show.
