    If you keep moving the times around and no one knows where and when its on …it’s bound to loose ratings. It’s one of the best and for some dumb reason they pull the good ones????

    I love this show…it is one of my favorite shows and I look forward to watching it….I always record it so I don’t miss an episode….please keep it going…

    This is a great show I love it and wondered why it hadn’t been on. Its sad that unless the show has people disrespecting, stealing or killing each other then its not a hit. This is a show that I can watch with my family and not have to be so worried about how it will affect my family. I think the world would be a much better place if we had more shows with substance. Please USA bring them back for a 9th season!!!!!!

    A truly dependable show. I could always tune in & know it was going to be entertaining, often uplifting and informing on how we think and work together both as a family and as people. Especially when it comes to our health and well being. So many medical shows are all rush and maihem. It was a reprieve from all of that rush and expected chaos on all medical shows today. So yes, I welcome it back for another turn or two and I will sit down with each episode and remember when television was really about relaxing for the evening after a long day to enjoy your favorite show.

      I can’t wait for season 7 to be on Netflix so I can watch it. I love this show and it is so relaxing for me. It’s my secret escape to the Hamptons!

      Jean I couldn’t say it better myself. I love Royal Pains, and when you’re sitting and watching it, you feel so relaxed. It’s enjoyable and you also learn something at the same time. I love all the characters and I really wish we could get a couple more seasons. I mean, it’s only 10 eps per year, so why can’t they just leave it be and don’t remove it. It’s a wonderful, wonderful show and I love it.

    I hope ROYAL PAINS continues to renew their contract for several more seasoins. I enjoy this show so much! It is so bright and cheerful! Love the Hamptons!!

    Royal Pains appeals to those who have some semblance of intelligence, unlike “Here comes Honey Boo Boo”, or “Real Wives of some city”.
    .
    Just because it doesn’t appeal to the masses of the 16-29 age group, is not a reason to drop a show. There are people 30-85 that should be considered.
    .
    A few good shows that were dropped, “10-8”, “Trauma”, “Harry’s Law” ( with Kathy Bates ), “Longmire”, and others …. are educational as well as entertaining.
    …dropped because the young apparently didn’t get it.
    .
    Royal Pains can still go in other directions to keep it fresh and interesting. Having multiple personalities and story lines always makes a show more interesting, and successful, … look at “Mash”.

    It was a good show. But I think it’s had its run. Continuing it now is just over doing it. Leave it go while it’s still good instead of taking it to the point where ppl are sick of it.

    I liked the royal pains show. It was light hearted n caring. Something different from the murder n pain most of the other shows are now. The actors melded together great. I looked forward to my Wednesday nights for the show
