USA’s new show Necessary Roughness premieres tonight at 10pm after the season premiere of Royal Pains.  Normally I’d guess that it does about as well as Suits did in its premiere last week (1.6 adults 18-49 rating and 4.6 million viewers), but my love of sports blinds me and it seems like scripted shows that have any kind of a sports tie-in don’t do as well as legal-themed shows in the ratings.  As ever, critical reviews are absolutely worthless in terms of predicting ratings, and as with Suits, I saw both good reviews and bad reviews. I’ll give it a look.
