Characters Welcome

  • Simon

    So, the same return and end date as last year then! Any word on what is an obvious 7th season yet?

  • DCC

    When will we have news about Fairly Legal and Common Law? I really hope both shows get renewed.

  • tv#1

    I can’t get into any USA network series. They are all uninteresting. Very bland plain stuff. No interesting characters or exciting plots. I am surprised they all do so well.

  • Georgia

    I wish USA would be available somehow on my Roku.

  • JRR2

    Psych please!

  • Ram510

    How have they figured all this out, buy still no word on when Psych will return. Come on USA

  • Eric_Philly

    Uh… what? Almost none of that makes any sense.

  • Lucazzy

    @tv#1 Burn Notice has some of the most likable and interesting characters on TV, and the plot really heated up with a 24-type twist at the end of the mid-season finale.

  • Iowan

    Psych needs to come back!!!

  • Jen

    Love Covert Affairs! and White Collar and Royal Pains! and yes, USA please bring back Psych!
