USA is shaking things up a bit come January. They've decided to give each of their three returning series -- Burn Notice, Psych and White Collar -- their own nights, according to The Futon Critic. Not only that, but they're all on at 10:00 ET, which means they can compete directly with NBC's The Jay Leno Show.
I doubt that was a major factor in USA's decision regarding these returns, but I like to think it is. I like to think everyone in television is looking for ways to make NBC's programming move look bad.
The fun begins on Tuesday, January 19 with the return of White Collar's inaugural season at 10 ET. Then, on Thursday, January 21, Burn Notice returns to round out its third season. Fans of Psych will have to wait an extra week, as the network is holding off the continuation of its fourth season until the following week. It premieres Wednesday, January 27.
Once everything is in full swing, USA will have a new scripted drama on at 10 ET for three days straight, smack in the middle of the week:
Tuesdays - White Collar
Wednesdays - Psych
Thursdays - Burn Notice
