    I must admit USA is my favorite cable channel for scripted tv so I mostly watch anything they produce or air, even WWE from time to time lol.

    But anyway can’t wait for both shows to return.

    I’ve been sseing the SUITS ad at the top of this site for a few days. A couple of times, I thought for a second it said “S-L-U-T-S.”

    USA has a better lineup than the networks. Thank goodness for USA, the only channel worth watching in the summer.
