Three USA dramas—Royal Pains, White Collar and Covert Affairs—have officially been renewed, the basic-cable network announced on Tuesday.
The move was expected, as each of those series has proven to be a reliable ratings performer, with the trio ranking among the top 10 basic-cable summer dramas in adults 18-49 (aka the catnip-to-advertisers demo). Collectively, the shows recently helped USA notch a seventh straight win as summer's No. 1 basic-cable network in all key demos.
