    Covert Affairs has been an engaging story line I would like to see continue. White Collar is entertaining as well. If either is replaced with another fraudulent contest I will leave the network for elsewhere.

    I hate the reality shows, what they portray is far from real life, I agree they are staged, and when they run into overtime it screws up my recordings. I hope they don’t cancel White Collar or Covert Affairs, they are two of my favorites, I don’t like the long breaks between seasons. I remember when a season went from Sept to May, now they basically last for 6 to 13 weeks? C’mon writers can’t you do better than that?

    I have no problem with taking a month off, its the 6-12mos breaks that I cannot tolerate. I hardly ever watch network television anymore. I primarily watch USA and TBS and FOX news. I never watch reality shows anymore. I love Covert Affairs and White Collar and cant wait for the next series of episodes. Suits is by far my favorite.

    If USA cancels White Collar or Covert Affairs we’re turning off the cable. I completely agree about the reality shows and they should all be canceled. They help nothing and are mostly staged. Anything else worth watching can be seen for free on CBS, NBC or ABC, even White Collar reruns. Jmho.

    I agree. I don’t like the breaks either. I always fear the viewers will get in the habit of watching something else and forget to come back. Both of these shows should be renewed. White Collar is the most fun on TV and Covert Affairs is probably next. They are 2 shows I never miss and would be sorely disappointed if they are not renewed. If USA has to dump anything, it should be their new “reality” shows. I much prefer the fantasy.

    I’m not a fan of these midseason breaks. Sometimes, they’re so long that one almost forgets what’s already happened in the season, and I think it makes it harder for a new show to build a secure fan base. That said, a month isn’t too bad.

    Regarding “Covert Affairs,” I love the show and hope it gets renewed.
