USA Sets Return Dates for White Collar, Burn Notice, and More

While the major networks pack their summer schedules with musical chairs, palaces full of STDs and catfights, and more singing than a single human can possibly consume, cable takes advantage of the open field and programs lineups that you might actually watch.

USA Network has announced its summer premiere dates, meaning we finally know when we'll be seeing more Matt Bomer. Here's the list!


Common Law, May 11 at 10pm
This new buddy cop drama about two cops who are having trouble being buddies makes its series debut.


Royal Pains, June 6 at 9pm
The medical drama about a small-town doctor in a rich beach community kicks off its fourth season.


Necessary Roughness, June 6 at 10pm
Callie Thorne stars as a therapist to a pro football team as this drama returns for Season 2.


Burn Notice, June 14 at 9pm
Spies! Pastel-colored clothes! Swimsuits with girls' butts hanging out! Bruce Campbell! All that and more in Season 6.


Suits, June 14 at 10pm
It's Season 2 of the fast-paced odd couple legal drama.


White Collar, July 10 at 9pm
Matt Bomer is a con artist. Tim DeKay is an FBI agent. They'll partner up again for wacky hijinks in Season 4.


Covert Affairs, July 10 at 10pm
More spies! This time it's Golden Globe nominee Piper Parabo being sneaky in the third season.


Political Animals, July TBD
This six-episode miniseries follows a former first family as they hang on to what power they have left in Washington, D.C. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, James Wolk, Sebastian Stan.


I'm going to spend my summer hovering over a BBQ until mid-September. What about you?

Really excited for all of them except for Covert Affairs and Necessary Roughness. I just couldn't get into those two. Looking forward to Common Law, it should be fun from what I've seen of the pilot clips. Suits and Burn Notice are by far my favorites, and I was hoping Psych would return in the summer. It looks like we have to wait til November.

If you haven't watched Necessary Roughness yet it is a really good show. If you loved Callie Thorne from "Rescue Me", then you will love her in this.

Common Law, Royal Pains, Suits, White Collar, and Political Animals... I used to watch all the others but I stopped. Though there is definitely some thing in their schedule for everyone.

Suits and White Collar

I gave up on Covert Affairs in the second season. I stopped in Burn Notice in their second season but plan to start over at some point because I loved the show. Maybe this summer I should catch up.

Summer time means.... White collar, true blood, Louie, Wilfred, Pretty Little Liars. And its ok that I watch so much tv in Summer, because I live in Ireland, where it never stops raining. So its not like I'm missing outside time or anything.

Thank you for the info! I was wondering when Common Law was going to debut and when Royal Pains, White Collar, and Burn Notice were coming back.

Big fan of Burn Notice and White Collar.

Not big, but a fan of Suits.

Was a fan of Royal Pains and Covert Affairs but stopped watching both during their second seasons.

Might become a fan of Common Law -- will definitely give it a shot.

Not a fan of Necessary Roughness.

Not a fan of the premise of Political Animals, but the cast is great, so I might give it a shot.

I like all of these shows. The only one that sounds not interesting is Political Animals, but because Sigourney Weaver is in it will give it a try.

Suits and Covert Affairs are my favorites along with Fairly Legal.

I wish USA would stick with a spring/summer run for these rather than bringing some back for the late fall/winter then returning again just a few short months later. In other words, give the major networks their fall/winter season, as usual, and let all the cable networks have a spring/summer even if episodes are reduced to 13 or 18.

I missed Burn Notice. Is it messed up that my son knows who Michael is?? LOL.

I really enjoyed Suits and I did not expect to like it at all. Looking forward to more White Collar not just cuz of Bomer but because I like where the story is heading and am interested to see what is going to happen after Neil took off.

Uuuuungh. My body is ready.



Seriously. USA shows have such great, mid-season, cliffhanger finales that I can barely contain myself when they return. Suits and White Collar's returns are the ones I'm looking forward to most, but all the shows went on hiatus with some really good episodes.



Can't wait! *goes back to waiting*

Hooray Suits is finally back!

I'm pretty much looking forward to every show up there, except Political Animals, with Burn Notice taking the top spot on my list!

I still don't know if I'll bother with Common Law, it just seems so much an amalgam of many other USA show types.



But Royal Pains, Burn Notice, Suits, White Collar, and Covert Affairs are all big YAY for me.



CRAP! White Collar's premiere date is the first night of Comic-Con.
