Thinking it might be cool to just hang out and lawyer some more, TNT has issued a totally casual third-season renewal to Franklin And Bash, all chill and whatever, just like the law, brah. The series—in which Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer don special lawyering suits that conceal their secret identities as, respectively, a kegger and a flip-flop—has remained a solid ratings winner by TNT's summer programming standards, building on last year's audience to an average of around 4.3 million viewers who have warmed to its breezy, brewski charms and reminders that the penal system doesn't always have to be such a downer (particularly when it sounds like "penile system"). In fact, more often than not, a case can be solved by the simple donning of a costume or use of elaborate props—as first theorized by Clarence Darrow, the original Bash, who famously said, "Objection, your Honor: It's time to party." Objection sustained.
