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.

Neal and Mozzie Try to Stay Ahead of the FBI on 'White Collar' (VIDEO)

Neal finds a fake Degas on 'White Collar'Neal Caffrey always walks a thin line on 'White Collar' (Tuesdays, 9PM on USA) between his former life as a con-man and his current life working with the FBI's Peter Burke. Things got even more dicey for Caffrey when he tried to balance working with his trusted friend and former colleague Mozzie with an art scandal Burke was pursuing with his old mentor.

At times, Caffrey had to stay one step ahead of Burke, almost literally: He tried to avoid his elevator and nearly lost his hat. The art fraud case involved a fake Degas, which Caffrey had to replace before Burke could get to it in a penthouse.

Mozzie was helping Caffrey remotely, opening doors in the apartment complex and keeping him updated on his time. But would it be enough to keep Burke from finding him and the fake Degas?

'Real Housewife' Jill Zarin Is Bidding for a Bachelor on 'White Collar' (VIDEO)

Jill Zarin ('The Real Housewives of New York City'), 'White Collar'The men of 'White Collar' (Tue, 9PM ET on USA) went undercover as wealthy bachelors at a dating auction to try and lure out a mysterious black widow. While she's wedded and "deaded" four husbands, she didn't take any of their money.

Jones does well pretending to be a pastry chef, while Peter comes across as more genuine and winds up the "winner." Neal, on the other hand, was so good at playing utterly despicable, Diane had to bid on him or watch the auction derail as no one was interested.

In a fun cameo, Jill Zarin of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' was on-hand as another woman in the speed-dating format. We particularly enjoyed her disgust at Neal talking about how he hunts fawns and then takes a phone call during their very short date.

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.

Tim DeKay Breaks Down His 'White Collar' Success

by Mike Hess, posted Mar 9th 2010 2:00PM
In yet another hit for cable, USA's 'White Collar' -- with a cast led by star Tim DeKay -- is just another reason why people are jumping to cable for quality television. "Culturally, the opportunity to look at different venues in general -- not only on TV, but online, on our phones -- has put in our psyche that there's so much there to watch and so many avenues," DeKay explained during a chat with us.

So, to someone who maybe hasn't ventured out and watched 'White Collar' yet, what's your Cliff's Notes summary of it?
'White Collar' is a show about the unlikely pairing of an FBI agent and an ex-con solving smart, glamorous, interesting and provocative crimes in a sometimes very funny way. It's 'Thomas Crowne Affair' meets 'Midnight Run.' That relationship between Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin, they're very different but you can tell they kind of like each other even though they're quite opposite. And the 'Thomas Crowne Affair' gives it that snap and hipness.

White Collar is back tonight at last

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 19th 2010 10:30AM
white_collar_duo_usaHas it really been over a month since White Collar left us hanging on the cliff? Yes, I guess it has. Thank goodness USA has given this show an order for a second season. It's delightful. I know, it's a fruity word, but I can't think of a better one that describes the show. Okay, fun.

Tonight, apparently, we're going to resolve the Kate/Neal/Peter question in some way, shape or form because clearly there are other cases to resolve and the partnership between Neil and Peter is moving on. It's the premise of the show, so it was inevitable that they were going to have to keep it together.

How do I know for sure, well... take a look at the preview. After the jump.

What to Watch: January 19

by Kim Potts, posted Jan 19th 2010 6:00AM
'White Collar' (10PM, USA) midseason premiere
Nothing like the threat of imprisonment to provide an extra bit of incentive, as Neal (Matthew Bomer) finds out when he and Peter go undercover to take down a ring of shady Wall Street brokers. The duo is facing off against some Madoff-y type dudes, which means even Neal is being challenged by this level of deception. But back to that incentive business: Turns out that if Neal can't prove his worth and thwart these white collar (we mentioned the title of the show, which means if this were the What to Watch drinking game, we'd all be doing shots right now) baddies, his deal with the FBI will be called off and Neal will be shipped off back to the hoosegow.
