    rehabber, I hope so too! But…it’s not looking good. Michael Trucco (AKA Justin) said this morning via his Twitter account that “The Proverbial Fat Lady has sung.” in regards to Fairly Legal. Looks like it’s not coming back. :( Sad, sad news!!

    I guess USA is cleaning house. This was a fun show after a couple of bad first episodes.
    Do we just not like fun buddy cop shows anymore?
    I think there’s room for one or two buddy cop shows on TV and this was a pretty good one.

    I am sorry for those who are fans of Common Law and Fairly Legal, but I am really anxious for news of Burn Notice. Although ratings-wise it does very well for USA, it’s getting older and probably more expensive to produce.I am just hoping for some kind of seventh season!!

    Miami Vice-wannabe cancelled? Say it isn’t so!

    What *were* the show’s typical ratings?

    Always interesting to find out the approximate “bottom line” that will get a show cancelled (I know, I know, there are a lot of variables…who owns the show…how close to syndication…yadda yadda).

    Deadline is reporting that Fairly Legal is cancelled. I think Political Animals has also been canned just leaving word on the future of Necessary Roughness

    Aaargh, I didn’t see all these comments before I posted my breaking news. Stupid I Pad

    I always watch at least the first episode of every scripted show and I love the shows from USA channel, but I couldn’t finish the Common Law pilot. It was really boring and desapointing.

    Are you kidding right? All TNT shows underperformed this summer, no show has critical claim or buzz, most of them skew old.

    USA shows does very well in 18-34 (meaning more buzz, more adv money, better ratings and “brand” of the network). TNT shows do abysmal in the 18-34.

    Despite the many misses, USA found a good ratings performer in Suits in the last couple of years, I think it’s their best performer in 18-34 (not that I personally like the show, but that’s not the point).

    Interesting that after a long run of really good, hit shows, USA’s formula has finally started to wear thin. I’m a big fan of a number of USA shows, but I never even tried this or the (also canceled) Fairly Legal.

    The end of a winning streak for USA. It was a remarkable run, having hit after hit, while NBC continues to struggle big-time and can only dream of having the success that USA had recently.

    After seeing the ratings for Common Law, it does not surprise me that it can cancelled, finishing the lowest of all USA shows, in total viewers and in the key demo.

    Believe it or not, Fairly Legal actually had more total viewers than Psych, yet Psych is still around and Fairly Legal is gone, thanks mainly to the key demo.

    No surprise. I watch alot of USA shows. I really like USA shows but could not get into this one. I used to not like anything TNT offered but I have to say lately I have been liking some of the TNT shows such as Falling Skies and Rizzoli and Isles (I think those two actresses on R&I have the best chemistry together then any others I have seen, amazing chemistry). I would not say USA is doing bad now I think they are still doing well. I thought they were still number 1, that being said I would also not say that all TNT shows are bad either.

  • Elizabeth M.

    I think that TNT’s Rizzoli and Isles has good ratings for TNT it does skew old but get’s 1.1-1.3 (1.3 was the finale but it was consistent with 1 or higher)and I beleive it gets buzz too. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander work great together.

    I’m so disappointed, really enjoyed Common Law!
