    I just binge-watched the first ten episodes...good show! The first episode or two was too crude, but it moved away from that and got better.

    If you haven't watched Sirens, I definitely recommend it.

    Sirens is centered around a three-person paramedic team, their fire station co-workers, and the people they encounter on their calls. Each episode is only a half hour long. And they do use salty language.

    Not renewed. Cancelled. Kaput.

    The season finale from last week is the series finale.

    A real shame, this was one of the better sitcoms airing these days. Fresh, funny, moved fast, always witty.

    This makes me sad. I loved this show!

    Just hearing Cash or Billy talk (regardless of what they said) always cracked me up! And the fact that Cash always called Brian, "Kevin" always made me laugh too.

    The episode where Billy talked about their pet pony named "Tony" was hilarious.

    Boo. As usual, if I like a show, it's going to be cancelled.

    I don't get USA today. They've made some good shows like Sirens and tat cop show they had (forgot the title) but keep pushing it off to focus on Modern Family reruns. I miss the old USA.

    I'd love Netflix to grab this show!

    Common Law? It was a buddy cop show with an uptight white guy and laid-back black guy (played by Michael Ealy, who coincidentally played an android cop in Fox's cancelled Almost Human and is now in The Following)

    I liked Sirens, too. The relationships and interactions between the characters were great.

    USA seems to handle hour long shows ok, mostly, Burn Notice, White Collar, Suits, Covert Affairs, and probably some others I'm forgetting... In Plain Sight

    Great show gone...

    Yet that abominable "Chrisley Knows Best" is still on the air.

    I think I read somewhere that USA wants to change its image. It no longer wants to be the "blue-sky, we love characters" channel, but wants to be darker, edgier, more hip. And of course draw a younger demo (who doesn't? :rolleyes:).

    The problem is shows like White Collar and Covert Affairs and whatnot had strong, loyal audience, even if they were a bit long in the tooth. And their newer shows either aren't working well (looking at you DIG), or have yet to premiere (Mr. Robot?).

    And sadly, the sitcoms they had/have, even the popular ones like Sirens, don't fit that new style, so there is little incentive to keep them, promote them, or find ways to grow them.

    Reminds me of A&E, and their desire for hipper eyeballs. Throwing away Longmire really pissed off a bunch of viewers, who now don't watch any A&E, nor have any desire to.

    Honestly, I rarely understand the brains running today's networks.

    Sirens kind of DOES fit that new image. I noticed that even their existing shows like Suits have started using more and more bad language, I'm guessing to get younger viewers to watch (and wife and I have a drinking game going on the number of times they say Sh**, I think one episode it was like 50 times in an hour long show).

    I'm so tired of Networks playing follow the leader. They are all trying to emulate AMC.

    Yes, that was it. I enjoyed both Michael Ealy shows personally.

    The problem is most of those shows are either off the air, or are getting close.

    I hope someone swoops in and saves it like Netflix did with Longmire.
