Annie Must Protect Danielle From a Rogue Agent on 'Covert Affairs' Finale (VIDEO)

'Covert Affairs' season finaleAnnie and Danielle got to spend some quality sister time together on 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA) in this season finale. It's just a shame it was while they were hiding from the rogue agent looking to kill them. These scenes brought a close to one chapter of Annie's professional life, and ushered in another as she coolly and confidently took down the agent in order to save her sister.

But as cool as she was in that moment, it still marked her first kill and that's not something you can simply brush to the side and move on. We were thrilled to see her and Danielle reach a reconciliation, and even more thrilled that Annie gets to come home!

Annie's Got a Gun, and Specialized Training With it, on 'Covert Affairs' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2011 6:00AM
'Covert Affairs'Remember that Annie wasn't even supposed to be brought up to the big leagues quite as quickly as she was on 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA). Nevertheless, she's proven herself savvy in the field, clever and maybe just a little lucky along the way. But it's the luck that concerns her.

After her more recent takedown led to her closest encounter yet with a whizzing bullet, Annie requested specialized training, and Joan quickly approved it. Now Annie will have some training and a greater confidence with a weapon when her luck's being tested, making her an even more impressive agent.

'Covert Affairs' - 'The Wake-Up Bomb'USA is out to take on the big boys in the regular season with some of their biggest hits. 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 9PM ET on USA) returned to the network, continuing its second season with an explosive episode.

Annie has been thrown out of her sister's house, which is actually a good thing for her character, but the friendly new chef she finds herself staying with on a temporary basis suddenly becomes a potential terrorist suspect.

Things take a decidedly dangerous turn when Augie advises her that they've found traces of explosive compounds in a safehouse, and she uses her own knowledge to guess that a bomb had been planted at the good chef's place.

USA Renews 'Necessary Roughness,' 'Covert Affairs' and 'Royal Pains'

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 15th 2011 6:20PM
USA has renewed its original series 'Necessary Roughness,' 'Covert Affairs' and 'Royal Pains.' The pick-ups cap a strong summer for the cable network in terms of ratings. Each series has received a 16-episode order.

"USA's original programming blew through all expectations this summer. We had an unprecedented number of original series on our air -- and every single one of them was great," Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, USA Network co-presidents, said in a statement.

"The actors who make our shows unique aren't just stars, they are character actors in the finest sense. Our writers, directors and producers truly understand what it takes to create sustainable success. It's a rare and wonderful thing to announce the pick-up of our entire summer of programming."

Earlier this summer, USA renewed its other originals: 'White Collar,' 'Suits,' 'Burn Notice' and 'In Plain Sight,' making them seven for seven in pick-ups.

Annie Has to Fight to Save a Young Boy on 'Covert Affairs' (VIDEO)

'Covert Affairs' - 'Around the Sun'What wouldn't a parent do for their children? On shows like 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA) they often go to jail for them. In this week's installment, though, dear old dad was genuinely doing some bad things -- giving NASA secrets to a rebel Colombian army -- but he was doing it to protect his son.

Annie took that protection much more literally, as she wound up battling it out with a woman in an industrial complex with the kid looking on. Of course, this being Annie, she pulled off the win for the home team. But consequences being what they are, despite this being TV land, the kid's dad has to go away for his crimes.

Is Tuesday 10PM the New Thursday 9PM?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 27th 2010 10:01AM
Rescue Me, Denis LearySummer TV programming used to be a wasteland of reruns, reruns and more reruns. Seasons ran from September to May, and that's the way it was and we liked it! OK, we didn't really like it, but it got all the kids outside for the summer. But no more of that nonsense. We'll keep 'em glued to the tube year-round now.

Cable networks have been launching new and returning shows in the summer, and it makes sense, because they don't have the tough competition from the broadcast networks. Along with that, though, are seriously competitive timeslots, especially Tuesday at 10PM. If we didn't know better, we'd think it was Thursday at 9PM. You know, 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'The Office,' 'CSI,' 'Fringe,' and 'Supernatural,' among others. That's some serious competition.

How did USA become basic cable's most popular channel? They found a formula that works, and they stuck with it.

This week sees the season premieres of USA's 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' (Tuesday's debut, introducing a new detective played by Saffron Burrows, marks the beginning of season 9) and 'In Plain Sight' (starting its third season on Wednesday). Both series feature USA doing what it does best: offering quirky crimefighters who nail bad guys even as their own lives are falling apart.

USA getting involved in Covert Affairs with Piper Perabo

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 31st 2009 2:00PM
Piper PeraboPiper Perabo's most recognizable roles have been in the Cheaper by the Dozen films, as well as a turn in Coyote Ugly. And yet, hers is one of those names unique enough to remember. Someone at USA recalled Perabo well enough to cast her in Covert Affairs, a pilot about a young CIA trainee abruptly called up as a field operative. While she thinks it's because she's so awesome and all, it turns out that it has more to do with some secret in her past.

In other words, she may be woefully unprepared for the cases she finds herself involved in. At least she'll have Christopher Gorham (Harper's Island) on hand to help her navigate, though I wouldn't trust him. Plus, he's blind which limits his abilities in the field.

For those of you tracking which of the Harper's Island alumni would be the first to land regular work elsewhere, it looks like it was the most unstable of the bunch. I guess that means Gorham won't be available for that Weekend at Bernie's style reunion special.
