Over the last few weeks I've been talking about USA network and how its shows have the perfect mix of characterization and scripting that make them some of the most popular programs on television today. One of these shows, which has been given numerous mention, is 'Burn Notice.' Now, before its fourth season begins on June 3rd, news comes in about the show's future.
USA has order two more seasons of the series, which follows former spy Michael Westen and his friends as they try to help the wronged of Miami. This is good news all around. For USA, they establish a potential anchor show that can be used to launch other new shows on Thursday night; if they continue to keep the show at the same time slot. For Miami, it means more free publicity for future visitors who fall in love with the show's tropical settings.
A bit of trivia: if 'Burn Notice' completes its sixth season in Miami it will supplant 'Miami Vice', with five seasons under its belt, as the longest-produced television show in the city.
