TNT Cancels ‘Hawthorne’, ‘Memphis Beat’ May Not Return Either

I guess it doesn’t pay to be Jada Pinkett Smith these days. First, rumors surface of your alleged affair with Mark Anthony which made Will Smith cry and now TNT has decided not to renew your TV show.

That’s right, for those of you watching Smith and her co-stars each week on Hawthorne, the show will not be back for a fourth season. This news comes after TNT recently canceled another show that, at least in my opinion, was pretty good and worth watching: Men of a Certain Age.

Apparently also “on the bubble” is the Jason Lee starrer Memphis Beat, which has been on for two seasons already. According to reports, the odds of it returning are pretty much even money.

Here’s the official statement about Hawthorne from TNT:

TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe. TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in HawthoRNe. The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show’s talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with HawthoRNe nothing but the best.

Nothing but the best. Isn’t that nice? And they say people in Hollywood don’t care.

    Didn’t care much for Hawthorne, but I love Memphis Beat.

    This cancellation is so ridiculous.  Hawthorne is one of the BEST series on t.v.  It involves a diverse story line with many that refer to life as we who watch it go through each day.  The question is what caused this cancellation.  I can’t believe it to be low viewership because most of my friends and most of their friends cannot be contacted when this show is on.  I know that does not say millions watch it still. . . . . . .  We should call and write and demand that it be brought back.

    Please do not drop Memphis Beat;  it is one of the best, if not THE BEST, police show on TV.
