You know, say what you will about the myriad of programming on USA that sometimes slips beneath the radar, they sure do have staying power. Plenty of USA series remain on the bubble, but at least for the moment fans of con-man drama 'White Collar,' spy drama 'Covert Affairs,' and rich doctor drama 'Royal Pains' have it made in the shade with additional episode orders. Just how long will the new seasons be, and what's still missing from the line-up?
Whether or not you enjoy USA's long-running con-man comedy 'Psych,' there's no denying its ridiculous reverence for all things '80s. John Hughes' "Brat Pack" in particular has long been a target of 'Psych's endless references, from casting to conversation. To date, they're just two actors shy of having featured all five major stars of 'The Breakfast Club,' now to be remedied with Anthony Michael Hall! So what's the deal, Emilio Estevez?
Patton Oswalt has a habit of turning up in strange TV places, in lieu of petitioning the world for a 'Ratatouille' sequel (seriously? 'Finding Nemo 2' first), but the portly comedian is always a welcome presence on some of our favorite shows. That's why wen't were surprised, but intrigued to learn that Oswalt would stop by USA's long-running actioner 'Burn Notice,' but you'll never guess just who they have him trading wits with Michael Westen as.
In what might be one of the final nails in MTV's critically-acclaimed, yet surprisingly-cancelled indie comedy 'I Just Want My Pants Back,' it would seem that one of its leads is trading in 'Pants' for 'Suits.' Actress Elisabeth Hower has just picked up a recurring gig on USA's hit series, one that may preclude any possibility of 'Pants' being revived from cancellation. But if Hower won't be putting on 'Pants' anymore, who will she play on USA?
Fear not, Will Forte! Where once it seemed like all hope had been lost for Forte's post-'SNL' FOX series 'Rebounding,' it seems like the series might get another chance for a pickup. FOX surprisingly passed on the series when it came time to announce its fall 2012 lineup, but which network might decided to pull the series out of the bin, and to pair it with what?
If you thought John C. McGinley was scary as a doctor, just wait until you see him join the C.I.A.
TV Guide reports that the forthcoming sixth season of USA's powerhouse hit 'Burn Notice' will be paging former 'Scrubs' doctor John C. McGinley for an extended arc as Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan)'s former C.I.A
When the news broke that Sigourney Weaver would finally throw her metaphorical hat into the TV ring for a political drama that sadly lacked any towering aliens, we drew a sad face. Now that another major sci-fi and nerd-friendly babe has joined the cast, we find ourselves with a much deeper need to watch USA's upcoming political drama. Now if they just moved the setting to space, we'd be hooked!
I know, we'd all like to see Ellen Ripley fighting (or in the case of 'Avatar,' peacefully co-existing with) otherworldly aliens 'til our dying day, but at the very least, now we won't have to wait years in between our Sigourney Weaver fixes.
