    It needs to be brought back. Common Law’s viewers have been consistant based on these numbers, if not increased during each episode. This is a very original series that deserves a second season. :)

    I love Common Law. Bring it on for another season. I like the story line. It’s original. Plus Michael Ealy is not hard
    to look at every week.

    Keep Common Law on USA! It’s a refreshing take on the relationship of two cops who obviously care for and respect each other but just have trouble showing it sometimes. Watching them sift through their fears/feelings was great. They’re more than partners; they’re brothers. I want to see that bond grow in season 2 and beyond.

    Really hope that Common Law gets renewed. Also wanted The Finder renewed … and thinking back, I liked Memphis Heat too and still wish it had been renewed.

    Hope, hope, hope that Common Law gets a second season — after all, it’s been stuck on a Friday and I admit, I usually watch it on the DVR b/c Friday nights aren’t big TV nites around here or for a lot of people.

    I love this show. KEEP IT!!! I also love “The Finder” bring it back, too!!!! I don’t know who’s opinions your following but in my opinion these are the types of shows I enjoy and there are many many people like me who’s preferences should matter even if your ratings are what you want them to be. Quite frankly, so much of what is on doesn’t come anywhere close to what is worth my time. Please consider those of us who enjoy something more than the norm.
