Suits, Necessary Roughness: USA to Renew Shows for Second Seasons

Suits season twoWord out of the TCA summer press tour is that USA Networks is close to renewing freshman series Suits and Necessary Roughness for second seasons. The execs weren’t ready to announce the renewals yet but USA co-president Chris McCumber teased, “The outlook is sunny.” Co-president Jeff Wachtel added, “The future is so bright, we feel like wearing shades.”

Starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams, Suits debuted on June 23rd with a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic and 4.64 million total viewers. The demo took an alarming 26% dive for episode two. Over the course of the last couple episodes however, the numbers have been building back up. Thursday’s episode attracted a 1.5 in the demo and 4.44 million viewers. So far this season, Suits is averaging a 1.4 in the demo and 4.37 million.

Necessary Roughness stars Callie Thorne and premiered on June 29th with a 1.4 in the demographic and 4.67 million viewers. The numbers dipped after that but have also been climbing back up. Last Wednesday’s installment garnered a 1.3 in the demo and 4.21 million. The show is averaging a 1.3 and 4.3 million after five episodes.

Suits is expected to complete its first season of 12 episodes on September 8th. Necessary Roughness will wrap its first dozen installments on September 14th.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear Suits and Necessary Roughness are being renewed? Which do you like better?

My family watches both. Actually a pretty good shows that teenagers can watch and there isn’t that much sexual comments made.
Better than most shows on ABC,NBC and CBC…
I would challenge it against all these stupid reality shows.
Love them both and hope they continue for awhile.

I’m not a big fan of television, but when I was introduced to Suits, I fell in LOVE! It would be spectacular if there were a second season.

I’ve watched both but “Suits,” without question, is the better show — better written, better acted. I love the relationship of the 2 leads. It’s been nice to see Macht get a series which showcases his obvious talent. Adams is pretty good, too, but Macht makes the show.


Ava August 3, 2011 at 7:09 pm

So so so happy to hear suits is coming back. It’s an amazing show, really well written. People have mentioned that it is similar to White Collar, which I am also very much a fan of. However, Suits has Gabriel Macht who is handsome and plays Harvey to perfection. I am loving the relationship between Havery and Mike and can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store. Yeah!!!! :D

I love Suits so far. Really suprised at the quality of shows that USA continues to have. Havent had really any interest in Neccessary Roughness though and I watch too much tv anyway.. :)


Alex August 3, 2011 at 3:55 pm

I watch both, and while I enjoy both of them, but ‘Suits’ is by far my favorite of the two. And I have to agree with the critic who compared their onscreen interactions to a Clooney and Pitt like friendship.
