“Suits” Scores Renewal

suitsNow USA’s number one original series, Suits scored an expected pickup for season five Monday afternoon.

Through the first eight episodes in season four, Suits is averaging 2.59 million viewers and 0.8 A18-49 demo.  Compared to the first eight episodes last season, Suits is down slightly in total viewers (vs. 2.89 million viewers) and in the A18-49 demographic (vs. 1.0).  Last season; however, Suits aired on Tuesday nights and began in mid-July.  It now airs on Wednesdays and premiered in early June.

Even though ratings have slipped this season, Suits is the number one original on USA.  In addition, the two most recent debuts on USA, Rush and Satisfaction, failed to impress.  They are currently averaging 0.5 and 0.4 A18-49 demos, respectively.

The fifth season of Suits will premiere next summer.  It has been given a pickup of 16 episodes.
