    Relax, will ya? USA has ordered 13 episodes of Burn Notice, and the ratings are good.

    Postcards have almost no effect, especially if you pelt the network with them - they usually wind up in the trash. One nicely worded letter will do the job, as does one well-worded e-mail. That's why USA has a feedback e-mail address. Moderation will assure what you write gets read.

    Not according to NBC Universal Media, and they own USA. They may still be in production, and have only released titles for five episodes. NBC only releases episode names a couple weeks in advance, although you can find them a bit earlier when they go out for casting if you know where to look.

    Don't believe everything anyone says on the web. Most of it is baloney. Make sure to get a valid source before you believe anything.

    Since the nut thing worked so well, I'm stock piling matches for the fight!

    There are definitely 13 episodes, it's #2 for original cable programs (#8 overall) and there is NOTHING to worry about at this rate.

    Today's (Friday) issue of Variety has an article about NBC Universal's cable programming. It says that if Burn Notice's ratings for this week's episode hold up, they anticipate it will be renewed, possibly as early as THIS WEEKEND. This is a major industry publication, along with Hollywood Reporter, so this is seriously good news!

    Cross your fingers, all!

    They are - that is really good news - and may attract even more viewers, as they will wonder what the fuss is all about!

    Didn't expect much from this show, but I am really supprised.

    Thank god that someone told Gabrielle Anwar to drop the stupid Irish accent.

    One of the shows I looked forward to seeing now.

    I don't watch much TV but I actually like this show. I recognized Jeffrey Donovan from Hitch so I kept it on and it's good.

    In my experience, emailing and petitions are a waste of time. The only thing you can do is inform others on how good the show is and hopefully the ratings will speak volumes and keep the show on the air.

    So when the network advertises this show as a summer series, that means it will continue after the summer ~ just asking.

    No. Summer series run strictly during the summer, and most series finish by the week before the fall season starts. The nice thing about them is their seasons are usually about 13 weeks (versus 22-24 episodes for the regular season) with no interruptions as compared to the constant interruptions after Christmas during the regular season.

    Sorry, just had to say--networks are starting to listen to viewers who have something to say.

    That being said--all Shaun did was provide contact information for Burn Notice. I don't think it could hurt to write letters and tell them how much we're enjoying BN. Networks like praise too. Everything doesn't have to be negative, nor should it be.

    Bruce Campbell and Gabrielle Anwar were on the Today Show yesterday morning, and had nothing but good news about the show. It's still in production, it's a hit, and the future is rosy. You could sure tell they enjoyed one another as they talked, and that everyone was having fun making the show - always a good sign. They also said that unlike CSI Miami, Burn Notice is filmed entirely in Miami.

    Just discovered the interview on the Today Show page on MSNBC. The link will take you to the main video page. Look for Wednesday's videos, and scan down - it's near the bottom of the list. It even works on a Mac: will wonders never cease.

    This is a wonderful show. At least USA isn't like Fox where they have great critically acclaimed shows that they cancel. Hopefully this one will be on for many seasons. *CHEERS*
