According to the network, "Southland" was "too dark and gritty" for broadcast, as if viewers are too fragile to handle an adult show. As for Wells' line about how NBC doesn't have time periods available, the way "Mercy" and "Trauma" are performing, NBC will likely have had better time-slot options for "Southland" than Friday nights soon enough. Bottom line: If NBC had faith in "Southland," the network could tell a grown-up cop story at 9 p.m. this season.
