USA Network has awesome shows.
new seasons of Burn Notice, Suits, Royal Pains, Necessary Roughness, and White Collar.
Mehki Phifer is joining White Collar this season.
Funny, I was just thinking what a pile of crap USA turned into after such a promising reboot. Of course, they had Silk Stalkings, which was lame, but also Weird Science and freaking Duckman in the 90s, both of which rocked. But post reboot, they started out so strong with Dead Zone and Monk. Then Monk turned to crap, laughing at him instead of with him. 4400 was so-so, and now it's full of uninspired crap full of nothing but "hot" actors and writers who take craps on any original or witty plot or concept. Considering I don't watch anything on USA, and have never tried to since the Monk finale, I might be judging books by their covers, but aren't they all pretty much uninspired mystery of the week with hot chicks and dudes running around half naked, with the possible exception of Burn Notice, which I have read plenty of good about?
Again, not to crap on your post, but it's something I was actually *just* thinking about on Wednesday, and how such a promising network with really, really, really original shows in Monk, 4400 and Dead Zone became nothing but reject shows and reject actors from network trash. Same thing for plot goes with actors. From Tony Shalhoub and AMH to the dude who made Chuck into the intersect, Bruce Campbell, and whoever or whatever is on Royal Pains, Necessary Roughness and Suits.
I'm just finishing Touch and Fringe on the Playstation Store... Give me more original stuff like that, totally from left field. Granted they are both sci-fi, but Monk is a prime example. Totally uninspired tripe mystery of the week crap. But insanely original and awesome concept having the investigator having OCD. Perfect example of how, even with tired and old concepts, you can have a totally original take on something, and not rely on "hot" half naked actors rehashing the same old same old, with just a slightly different take.
/rant off. Sorry for the long post, just something I'd actually been thinking a lot about this week.
