TNT Acquires Off-Net Rights to ‘Hawaii 5-0'

CBS’ '70s cop-show revamp has found an off-network home

TNT's lineup just encountered a refreshing tropical breeze.

The cable station has acquired the off-network rights to CBS' "Hawaii 5-0," the company announced today. TNT will begin airing the series, which premiered last fall, in summer 2014.

The series joins CBS crime drama "The Mentalist," which will begin running on TNT later next year.

In addition to being a solid live-viewing ratings-getter for CBS, the new "5-0", which stars Grace Park, Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan and Daniel Dae Kim, is currently on pace to smash DVR viewing records, currently averaging 3.27 million total viewers per week via time-shifting.
