With the demise of the gritty, old-fashioned cop show Southland , TNT's dramatic lineup has been left with a gaping hole that may be impossible to fill - especially if the cabler's new procedural, King & Maxwell , is any indication. Starring Jon Tenney ( The Closer ) and X-Men 's Rebecca Romijn, it premieres at 10 p.m. Monday. It's one of three new basic cable shows, including Sinbad and Primeval: New World , a pair of family fantasy adventure series on Syfy that premiere Saturday at 9 and 10 p.m. respectively.

Sam Hinkie's tenure in Houston was never about Sam Hinkie, he'll tell you. It was really about the system. Now that Hinkie has become the new general manager and president of basketball operations for the 76ers, the question is: Can he bring that system to Philadelphia? Will Hinkie use the same methods he employed as executive vice president of basketball operations for the Rockets? Or will he do things his way, emphasizing some stuff the Rockets did and ignoring others? "I think we just need to be opportunistic about the things that come along," Hinkie said.

AMSTERDAM - Millions of Dutch people dressed in orange flocked to celebrations around the Netherlands on Tuesday as the nation welcomed its first king in 123 years. With his mother, Queen Beatrix, 75, abdicating after 33 years, Willem-Alexander, at 46, becomes the youngest monarch in Europe and the first Dutch king since Willem III died in 1890.

Brandon Copeland enjoyed a stellar senior season with Ivy League champion Penn and continued the momentum during offseason workouts. Now the Penn defensive end hopes to hear his name called in the NFL draft this weekend or to be signed as a priority free agent.

In nine of the 14 drafts with Reid as head coach, depending on which side of the ball required more attention that year, the Eagles took either an offensive or defensive lineman with their initial selection.
