What’s This TV Show About?
A USA Network legal drama, Suits centers on ace attorney, Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht) and his college dropout protegé Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). The cast also includes Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, and Meghan Markle. Dulé Hill joins in season seven as Harvey’s old friend, Alex Williams, a senior partner at the rival law firm of Bratton Gould. This year, Harvey will step up to fill the void left by Jessica’s (Gina Torres) departure, while Mike is balancing pro bono work with corporate cases.
Season Seven Ratings
The seventh season of Suits averaged a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.30 million viewers. Compared to season six, that’s down by 20% and down by 19%, respectively. Check out how Suits stacks up against other USA Network TV shows.
Although Suits has been a big hit for USA, the show’s growing a little long in the tooth. In addition, Universal Cable Productions is developing a spinoff with Gina Torres in the lead. Is this the beginning of the end for the legal drama, or will USA order season eight? The ratings are down again this year but it’s still one of USA’s highest-rated original scripted series. Unless the costs are an issue, I suspect Suits will return for another season. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and will update this page as needed.
