TNT renewing 'Memphis Beat'

Jason Lee drama has averaged 4.5 million viewers

TNT is renewing its other freshman drama of the summer.

Sources say the network is bringing back "Memphis Beat" for a second season.

The word comes following last month's pickup of TNT's new ratings smash "Rizzoli & Isles."

"Beat" stars Jason Lee as Tennessee detective and is produced by Warner Horizon.

The drama has been a solid performer, averaging 4.5 million viewers and a 1.1 in adults 18-49 rating through 10 episodes.
