Renewal Imminent for TNT Medical Drama; Fate of One of Net's Summer Shows Still to Be Decided Deadline.com
It appears that an announcement is imminent from TNT that it will renew the Jada Pinkett Smith nurse show “Hawthorne,” Deadline.com reports.
That leaves the Dylan McDermott police drama “Dark Blue” as the only summer TNT series whose fate has yet to be determined.
Other network programs, including the Emmy-winning "The Closer" and the new, hot ratings hits "Rizzoli & Isles" and "Memphis Beat," as well as the Timothy Hutton caper show "Leverage," were never in doubt, but "Hawthorne’s" chances for renewal were considered iffy. The show does about half as well as "The Closer" and "Rizzoli" ratings-wise.
