Here's your Scheduling Five-Spot for the week ending April 10, 2011:
I predicted it wouldn't stick around. Fortunately for the show, it stabilized in the low 2's soon after and has had retention similar to that of Fox's other second-tier animation shows (American Dad! and The Cleveland Show). The bad news is that it only scored 13 episodes, so it may not get a chance to shine in fall when the animation is always much stronger.
Ted Linhart filled in a couple more days of the USA summer schedule this week. Joining previously-announced White Collar/Covert Affairs Tuesday (beginning June 7) are a Royal Pains Wednesday leading into newbie Necessary Roughness (on June 29) and a Burn Notice Thursday leading into newbie Suits (on June 23). Suits is the legal drama previously known as A Legal Mind. That means it'll be the first time since 2005 that USA won't have Psych in the summer; that show will kick off its season in the fall (where it aired its back half last year).
