TV Tonight: Burn Notice and Royal Pains on USA

A lot of action is going down on USA tonight, where one of the shows on my Summer TV top 10 makes its season premiere — and a brand new series debuts right after.


The first is Burn Notice, the slick, Miami-set spy show that's become a big hit for USA over the past couple of years. This season finds super-spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) breaking free of the people who burned him, trying to negotiate the world on his own terms again — and, undoubtedly, causing a little trouble along the way.

The second is Royal Pains, about Dr. Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein), a medical superstar who suddenly finds himself making house calls to the rich and famous in the Hamptons. It's the sort of premise that might have worked better when people still, y'know, had money — but hey, we're still watching Real Housewives, so why not give this a shot?

You can check out previews for both shows — plus a funny clip in which Michael Westen welcomes Hank Lawson to the USA family — if you read more.
