I've been enjoying this season. I was worried when they announced they were changing direction and writers. But even though it's a little more "precedural" than it used to be, it's still the same show.
Good news/bad news: Good news is that the ratings have been great! This week's ep was the most-watched show on cable Wednesday night.
Bad news is, the season is being cut short because of a "medical leave" by the exec producer:
EXCLUSIVE: USA EXTENDS "BURN NOTICE," "ROYAL PAINS," EXPLAINS "IN PLAIN SIGHT" CUT
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- USA is giving "Burn Notice" and "Royal Pains" their longest seasons yet.
Both series are set to run 18 episodes this season with their summer finales (after 12 episodes) set for Thursday, August 26. Each will then return in the winter for their six remaining installments.
In addition, USA has provided the details behind its decision to wrap "In Plain Sight's" third season after 13 episodes:
"John McNamara, executive producer and showrunner of USA Network's IN PLAIN SIGHT, took a leave of absence for medical reasons," producer Universal Cable Productions said in a statement released to the site exclusively. "John Romano assumed executive producer responsibilities for the remaining episodes. Given the unexpected change, we decided to end the season at a natural spot -- with the surprising cliffhanger of episode 13."
Originally set for 16 installments, the current season will instead conclude Wednesday, June 30 at 10:00/9:00c.
