We'll miss you, Royal Pains!

Dr. Hank Lawson is what Gregory House would be if House weren't a handicapped, drug-addicted, mentally ill misanthrope. Hank is a skilled doctor with a strong moral code who treats diagnoses like mysteries. But that's where the similarities between House and Hank, and House and Royal Pains, end.

USA getting Royal Pains

It's only the first Monday of 2009, but basic cable has already picked up its first new show. The USA Network has picked up Royal Pains for a 12-episode first season, says The Hollywood Reporter, in preparation for a summer launch.

The new medical drama-comedy Royal Pains is making a push for House's fan base -- unsuccessfully.

Royal Pains: The Name Says It All
The Royal Pains pilot had something nice going on: two brothers (who actually get along) decide to stay in the Hamptons, hang out with beautiful women and run a private business servicing the rich and famous. But the writers abandoned this idea since the pilot, or at least they've been forced to package the show for popular, widespread consumption. And, man, is that a shame! The show is trying to capture House fans, even mimicking the FOX drama down to the way sick patients are introduced.

Blog Spotlight: Most-watched summer ever; 'Royal Pains' tops list

Though you wouldn't know it from following broadcast network ratings, summer TV viewing is at an all-time high.

According to a Turner research report, the average person watched a whopping 32.2 hours of TV per week this summer. In 2004, the average number of TV hours viewed during the summer was 29.8.

The gains were driven by cable TV programming, which continues to erode the traditional advantage of the Big Four networks.

Among new shows on ad-supported cable, the most-watched program was USA's "Royal Pains," with TNT's "The Closer" leading the list among returning shows.

Blog Spotlight: Why You Should Watch “Royal Pains

If you’ve been watching any of USA Network’s other shows, you’ve probably seen the promo trailer for the new series, Royal Pains, starring Mark Feuerstein. Maybe that trailer was enough to peak your interest. Perhaps you’re on the fence about it and would like to know a bit more about the show. I may be able to help you. In a recent conference call with the show’s executive producers/writers, Andrew Lenchewski and Michael Rauch, I asked them to tell us, in 20 seconds or less, what Royal Pains is about.

Blog Spotlight: Extreme Social Climbing: An Advance Review of USA's "Royal Pains"

I'll admit that I was a bit wary of USA's new summer series, Royal Pains, prior to watching the 90-minute pilot episode.

After all, Royal Pains' cutesy title, oddball casting, and fluffy subject matter could have made this either an unwatchable hot mess or a winning summer series that's equal parts dry wit, flashy environs, and winsomely quirky characters.

Fortunately, having watched Royal Pains' first episode, which airs tomorrow night on USA, I am happy to say that it's the latter. Royal Pains, which stars Mark Feuerstein (Defiance, 3 Lbs.) as disgraced doctor Hank Lawson, is exactly the sort of thing you want to be watching on those long, hot summer nights. It's the television equivalent of snacking on a Popsicle: cool, sweet, and relatively fat-free. Read more
