USA has canceled its freshman series Common Law, TVLine reports. More details as they become available.

  • Kevin Somerhalder

    Sad to hear this. Loved the show, but what could we expect? The ratings were bad.

  • Tommy

    Potential good news for “Fairly Legal”?

  • richard

    monk and psych. i dont hate other usa shows. just never watched them is all.

  • Bob

    Boo! Bad news.

  • Mark

    I really liked this one, bah!

  • Dre

    That stinks.

  • Lisa

    That sucks! My Mom and I really loved this show!

  • DeeAgeaux

    The best part of the show was Sonya Walger and there was not enough of her on CL.

    Sad to hear it, but the leads were released from their contracts months ago. I’m just surprised USA bothered to make it official.

    I won’t be watching “Fairly Legal,” anymore, even if they do renew it. I was rooting a bit for the show after season one, but season two was really awful. Nothing to do with “Common Law,” even if it was probably a choice between one or the other.

    They did kind of wrap up the main premise of the show in the 12th episode. While i enjoyed it this doesn’t surprise me. Once we found out why they were really in couples therapy the gimmick was over. I had thought of it a few times but couldn’t think of any reason for a second season.

  • SJ

    USA cancelling a show after the first season – is that a first?

  • SarahL

    Farewell, my pretties. I will miss the eye candy.

  • merrranga

    awww… i was kinda thinking about watching that someday… maybe.

  • Joe Smith

    I couldn’t get through the first episode. It was a bad spin of every tired crime show cliche. I can overlook that if characters are interesting and the acting is good. This show had neither of those.

  • chrisjozo

    It was a good show. I felt it would have had a better shot paired with Psych or any lead in other than Fairly Legal. Given how many times U.S.A. pushed back the premiere date I don’t think they really ever had faith in the show.

  • Holly


    First since The Starter Wife in 2007.

  • Jason50

    It was an ok buddy cop show. It’s no Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg but it was fine for TV. Although my buddy cop idea of Mike Tyson and Charlie Sheen has the makings of one awesome trainwreck.

  • Jane Elliot

    I wonder how this will affect Necessary Roughness’s chances, if at all.

  • Tea

    Too bad. I quite enjoyed this one, and I haven’t been too impressed with many of the other USA original series lately. The pilot was horrible and too long, but the show and characters improved after that.

  • Russell

    @Joe Smith – I totally agree. I couldn’t get past the first episode. Once you get really good shows that you would rather watch, you know something is wrong.
