USA renews White Collar, Royal Pains and Psych

http://www.deadline.com/2010/09/usa-...-collar-psych/

After another successful summer of original scripted programming, USA Network has made more renewals: sophomore series Royal Pains and White Collar for a third season and veteran Psych for a sixth season. The Royal Pains' order is said to be for 18 episodes, while I hear Psych and White Collar are being picked up for 16 episodes each. The decision was made while the 3 series are still in production on their current seasons (White Collar wraps this week, while Royal Pains and Psych are filming their last couple of episodes) to give producers the opportunity to lock in key crew members. With the pickups, which follow similar renewals for Burn Notice and In Plain Sight (both picked up for 2 more seasons) and freshman Covert Affairs as well as a miraculous final season eight-episode pickup for Law & Order: Criminal Intent with original star Vincent D'Onofrio on board, the top basic cable network is bringing back its entire 7-series slate. "To have such success with our existing series gives us a platform to experiment and push the envelope with our next generation of shows," said USA's president of original programming Jeff Wachtel.
To summarize:
Royal Pains gets 18 episode season
White Collar & Psych get 16 episode seasons

USA does know how to produce hit shows. Every show that aired on USA last spring and this summer got renewed.

I know it's the Fall and there is so much shit on, but this is great news for next summer.

And for the people who were bitching about procedurals in that other thread, at least USA knows how to develop great character-driven procedurals.

Awesome. I was a little worried about White Collar.

USA knows it's summer shows.

White Collar: Hooray!
Royal Pains: I don't watch it, but it seems like a good show from the commercials.
Psych: Hooray!

Great news for Psych. I wish they were getting the extra eps. I watch White Collar but could take it or leave it and I dropped Royal Pains after the first season.

Great news for both White Collar and Royal Pains. Just wish they didn't take almost a full year break on Royal Pains. I prefer the White Collar route where they take a much smaller hiatus.

Cool. I just started watching Psych a couple weeks ago, so I have a long way to catch up. White collar is at the top of my Netflix queue right now. I plan to get caught up on that one by January.

Great news on Psych one of the better shows out there
I thought Royal Pains season 1 was good, I gave up on Season 2
Not too fond of White Collar either.

I remember reading an article about the lady in charge of programming for USA, she chooses shows that are character oriented, and she does a very good job of it.

USA is the one cable channel that I wish I had (I currently don't have cable or satellite).

Royal Pains and White Collar both return in January. USA tends to give 13 episode orders for the first season and run them straight through. The second season and beyond get the 16-18 episode order and get the split season.

The only show they haven't done that with is In Plain Sight.
