USA Network has renewed three of its hit shows for additional seasons.
Covert Affairs, which stars Piper Perabo as young CIA operative Annie Walker, has been renewed for a 16 episode 3rd season. The show was the top cable series on Tuesdays this summer among total viewers and the adults 25-54 demographic.
My personal favorite of the three, Royal Pains, was renewed for a 4th season. The medical dramedy will also receive 16 episodes.
Lastly, freshman series Necessary Roughness, starring Callie Thorne as a therapist with high profile clients, was renewed for a 16 episode second season.
All in all, it looks like another successful summer for the cable network. This summer was USA was the most watched network ever for any cable network. With other returning shows, such as Psych, White Collar, Fairly Legal, Suits, and Burn Notice, it doesn’t look like they will lose that title any time soon.
