OK, apparently some cable shows do get canceled after all.
The good news this week was that both "Southland" and "Onion News Network" were renewed for a second season. The bad news came this afternoon: "Lights Out" won't be back.
That's too bad, but it's easy to see the up side: This is a show with a logical one-season arc, as "Lights" Leary struggled for a comeback bout to avoid bankruptcy. It's ending with:
-- This week's brilliant episode, with an Emmy-worthy performance by David Morse, as a former champ. That one airs one more time, Sunday night (technically, Monday morning) at 1 a.m.
-- Next Tuesday's episode, 10 p.m. March 29.
-- The April 5 finale, with what turns out to be Leary's final bout. I'll have more on those, in the next two Tuesday columns.
