Jason Lee and Sam Hennings in Memphis Beat

Boy, it is not a good month if you’re on a crappy TV show. First NBC’s “The Playboy Club” was cancelled (did anyone watch that?), today we got word that ABC’s newly rebooted “Charlie’s Angels” got the boot, and now, TNT has decided to cancel their sophomore show “Memphis Beat” after two seasons.

The cop drama, that starred Jason Lee, Sam Hennings and DJ Quall, centered on on Dwight Hendricks, a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection to the city, a passion for blues music and a close relationship with his mother.

“TNT has decided not to pick up a third season of Memphis Beat,” the network said through a spokesperson. “The network thanks everyone involved in the production of Memphis Beat for their work on the series, including the great cast and crew. TNT wishes everyone the best.”

This is the third show TNT has cancelled from their lineup. The previous two being Jada Pinkett-Smith’s medical drama “HawthoRNe” and Ray Romano’s “Men of a Certain Age”.

    “Memphis Beat” was a refreshing and unique light crime drama that will be hard for TNT to replace..I guess we will get another reality TV show, when will they stop, and there will be nothing left for network re-runs ten years from now..
