'Burn Notice' and 'Royal Pains' Return to USA in June

While most viewers glaze over at the amount of dreck major networks spew out during the warmer months, fans of USA Network's original series vibrate in anticipation for the return of the favorite programs.
And why not? USA is doing what its big brother NBC hasn't been able to do: create character-driven programs that mix humor with drama, all wrapped up in a nicely written script. Not only do fans have a right to be excited, but the network can crow a bit itself. As it will do in June when two of its most popular shows return.
On Thursday, June 3rd, 'Burn Notice' and 'Royal Pains' return to the schedule with all new episodes. For 'Royal Pains', which debuts at 9PM ET., it will be the sophomore season. At 10PM ET. 'Burn Notice' begins its fourth season, ranking it the second-longest running show behind 'Psych' (not including 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent', which originally ran on NBC).
When these shows return look for some new cast members. On 'Royal Pains' Henry Winkler will take on the role of Hank and Evan's father. 'Burn Notice' will introduce two new characters: Coby Bell, who will play a spy that comes in contact with Michael and the gang and stays in Miami (who wouldn't?), and Robert Wisdom, who will play the season's baddie.
If this isn't enough for you, then stick around--'White Collar' and 'Psych' return to the schedule in July.
