USA's Pearson cancelled
That’s too bad. I thought it was starting to find its footing.
usa tends to cancel any series i like, so i tend to avoid the channel (with a few exceptions) - i'm liking treadstone, so i fully expect a cancellation notice any day now...
We watched three episodes and we were done. I never really liked her character on Suits and had a hard time finding a reason to even root for whatever she was doing. We just found it kind of boring.
Don't say that! I have only watched E1 of Treadstone, but liking it and it's the kind of show that appeals to me.
I've found USA Network shows to be going downhill the last few years. I remember when there were at least 4 or 5 shows I'd regularly watch on there, and now, it's just Mr. Robot (which ends after this season) and Treadstone.
They made a decision to change their programming style a few years back. USA used to be "Characters Welcome", the Blue Sky era. It was lighter fare, more optimistic, less gritty (hence "blue sky"). Series like Psych, White Collar, Royal Pains, In Plain Sight, The 4400.
Then in 2016, they became "We the Bold", and programming turned grittier. Mr. Robot, Queen of the South, Colony, The Sinner.
Some good shows in both groups, and some bad shows. But a definite change in style.
I miss White Collar. It was so fun, and I'd watch Matt Bomer read from the dictionary.
One of my favorite shows at that time.
He's very good in Doom Patrol.
I see this syndicated from time to time. Always fun to tune in.
I'm not really one for re-watching shows, though, and I've seen all the White Collars.
The USA shows of that era are odd for me...I always enjoyed them to begin with, and they all gradually wore out their welcome with me. I think Burn Notice is the only one that I stuck with until the end, and I pretty much resented it the last couple of seasons...
White Collar, Monk, Psych, I'm sure there are others.
For me the only I didn't get into was Psych. I liked Monk, Royal Pains (though it was starting to get a bit tedious at the end), loved White Collar, and Burn Notice (another one that was starting to bore me with the endless peeling the onion).
These days I've got Mr. Robot and Treadstone (for now). It seems I'm watching less and less on regular TV/Directv and more on Amazon, Hulu and Netflix.
I liked all those lighter shows on USA. Starting with the 4400. Royal Pains, White Collar, Burn Notice, In Plain Sight to name a few. I think once AMC and FX started having success with darker, grittier stuff, they felt the need to compete. But to me, those USA shows hit the sweet spot. Fun, interesting, a bit different than broadcast TV, but not so dark that you felt like you needed a shower after watching them.
In Plain Sight has started in reruns here, and it just reminds me how much I like Mary McCormack's acting. I'd like to see a new hour-long series developed around her.
At some point we're going to get back to posting news about new, cancelled or renewed shows, right?
What a buzzkill! Do you also go up to people chatting at a party and tell them to steer their conversation back to your preferred topic?
Dude, every one of those USA shows has been cancelled!
In Plain Sight has been renewed for me . . . as reruns.
