I watched the pilot and 2nd episode tonight. The banter was funny, but otherwise it's pretty much your average LA cop show. It's fun, but the premise may start to get predictable.

Anybody else watching?

Watched the first two episodes. That was enough. As predictable as they come.

I've watched both episodes too. Definitely not 'must see' TV, but OK. I'll keep it in the scheduling but won't worry if I miss an episode or two.

I'm a big fan of other USA original programming (Psych, White Collar, Necessary Roughness, Covert Affairs...) but decided to skip this one. Just didn't look that entertaining to me. Seems that some others here agree. My girlfriend likes it though...

I like it. Nothing great but I've seen worse. Fairly Legal is way better.

Yeah I caught the pilot after the other weeks episode of Fairly Legal (big fan here lol).
Its not the best show around but its entertaining and thats enough for me, If I happen to be home around that time Ill catch the episode.
Otherwise my DVR will, Its not one of those shows I would consider staying home for but I have a feeling if they flesh out the 2 mains a bit more it could get pretty good if they can manage to avoid some of the "cop/bromance show" cliche's

I've caught myself laughing out loud a time or two during each episode. Great TV? No. Fun? well for now yes.

I agree. I like most of the USA shows, but I finally knocked Fairly Legal from my DVR and I dropped this one after the first 15 minutes.

The pilot got better as it moved along. The opening scene at the group therapy session was a bit over the top, but the interplay between the two leads gets interesting later in the show.

Several people have mentioned Fairly Legal. Ratings for the first season weren't very good, but the show managed to get renewed after several changes. I'm not really thrilled with the new guy and the forced "I hate you but find you really hot" interaction between him and Kate. And the story lines they've written for the evil stepmother have been really clumsy. Sadly, it's about to get the axe from my DVR list as well.

We enjoy "Fairly Legal" as USA shows go. It's no "Monk," the show that started the Characters Welcome theme for the network but its characters are ok.

Last week the three airings brought USA 1.1 in the 18-49 demo and 4.91 million viewers total.

The suits at NBC, USA's NBCU broadcast network sister, would like to be able to sell those numbers on many of their prime time shows.

DVR'g it was a pain in the butt. Kept missing the ending. On the 3rd try I padded it.

It's not on my hit parade, but preferred over fake reality programs.

Have only watched the pilot so far so I will have to reserve judgement as shows can change dramatically between the pilot episode and when it gets picked up.

How does that compare to the other USA shows like In Plain Sight, Psych and White Collar? My vague memory from last year was that it was one of the weaker shows on their schedule, but they renewed it anyway. Maybe it's doing better this season.

The other summer series are starting soon - Royal Pains, Suits (yeah!) and Burn Notice. I love that USA gives us some great dramas to watch in the summer.
