"Southland" is turning in its badge -- TNT has decided not to move forward with the cop drama. Its demise comes just weeks after its fifth-season finale, and while that episode brought a slight uptick in viewers, "Southland" wasn't a strong performer for the network; it hovered around the 1-million mark. Concerns grew for the show, about a group of LAPD officers, when word spread that three of its lead actors -- Ben McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy -- were in pilots for new series.

Indoor trampoline parks are springing into action throughout Southern California, along with leaping games of dodge ball, highflying basketball and rigorous calisthenics. Just ask Akory Coates, who lived out his basketball dreams for an hour recently at a Sky Zone trampoline park in Torrance. He jumped, he twirled in the air, his fingertips grazed the rim and he made four baskets. Not an easy feat for a 9-year-old, but a series of trampolines beneath his feet gave him all the lift he needed.

The Southland's move-up market showed some signs of life as the region's median home price improved for the second consecutive month in May, new data show. The median home price rose 5.4% in May from the same month last year to hit $295,000, real estate research firm DataQuick reported Wednesday. That was a 1.7% improvement over the prior month. Sales throughout the Southland also improved, up 20.6% from May 2011 and 15.1% from April to hit 22,192. Helping boost the median was a narrower share of foreclosures selling as part of the market for previously owned homes.
