USA has finished the US summer as cable’s No. 1 network across all key demographics for the seventh year. All three series rank among the top 10 scripted shows on cable networks in the all-important 18-49 demographic.
Covert Affairs, currently airing in Australia on Seven, has won a fourth season of 15 episodes.
Royal Pains, another Seven brand, will return for two additional runs of 13 episodes each, totalling a 26-episode order for seasons five and six.
White Collar, which airs here on TEN, wins 15 more episodes for its fifth season.
“All three of these series have found ways to stay creatively fresh and culturally relevant” USA co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber said in a statement. “The execution in writing, acting and production is among the best on television. In an increasingly competitive landscape, these series got new-season pickups the old-fashioned way, they earned it!”
Yet to be determined are other USA shows Common Law, Fairly Legal, Necessary Roughness and Political Animals.
Burn Notice was renewed for its fifth and sixth seasons in 2010.
