Why I love the USA Network

Share Article

I don’t really do reality TV (with one to two exceptions). I’m not into America’s Next Top anything. I already know I can dance. And I’m way past the MTV cut-off age. So, in the summer of off-season programming, USA Network has really stepped up to the plate for me.

In no particular order, after the jump.

  1. Not only do they show my favorite rerun show, Law & Order (all three, please, with Criminal Intent at first priority), but several years ago, concocted Monk, featuring former Wings taxi driver, Tony Shalhoub. I don’t follow Monk as much, but it’s returning on July 18 for its seventh season.
  2. Last year, USA debuted Burn Notice, which is my latest obsession. I have the Tivo all set up to record the season one marathon on July 3. Don’t tell, but I totally have a crush on main character Michael Westen. How could you not? Hot ex-spy, repeatedly avoids attempts on his life, saves others’ lives. The next season starts July 10.
  3. Psych, which kicks off its third season on July 18, is sprinkled with just enough cheese to be surprisingly entertaining. If the video below doesn’t make you smile, well, you need to start watching Psych. The duo Shawn and Gus (James Roday and Dule Hill, respectively) is hysterical. See video below as evidence.
  4. And finally, the much-hyped In Plain Sight, is really shaping up to be worth its weight. After the several month-long promotion, I was a little disappointed in the first episode. However, I didn’t give up, and the show is really coming into its own. Check out last Sunday’s episode with guest star Dave Foley.
  5. Even better, because it’s the USA Network, they rerun things all the time (so you don’t have to be tied to your TV in the summer) and they stream everything online as well.
