Necessary Roughness: Season Three for USA Series
USA Network is reportedly renewing Necessary Roughness for a third season of 10 episodes.
This will be the show’s smallest season order to date. The first season had 12 episodes and there are 16 in the current second season.
Necessary Roughness hasn’t been a big hit for USA but the cable channel recently cancelled some of its other struggling shows — Fairly Legal and Common Law.
The 11 episodes of season two that aired over the summer averaged a 0.7 rating in the demo with 2.71 million viewers. That’s down significantly from the first season which averaged a 1.2 rating with 4.18 million.
The remaining five episodes of season two kick off on January 23rd.
What do you think? Should USA have renewed Necessary Roughness or should they have cancelled it?
