In Plain Sight to Conclude After Season 5

by at . Comments

Talk about your good news/bad news scenario:

USA Network has both renewed and canceled In Plain Sight simultaneously: the show has been picked up for a fifth season, and then call it quits.

Mary McCormack as Mary Shannon

“We’ve built a contract with the audience and want to give them a sense of closure,” USA Network Co-President Jeff Wachtel told Variety, the first outlet to report the news.

Earlier today, USA made another decision regarding next summer: it renewed Suits for a second season.

Canceling smart, funny and interesting shows seems to be the wave of the future hence the boob tube monicker. I am a male 25 to 45 age bracket
self employed entrepreneur and will be changing the channel.

USA should join with TNT and cancel all the good shows that the viewers enjoy and fill them with stupid reality shows, night soap operas and other brain rotting forms of non-entertainment. This was an awesome tv series..and I even have to say I liked the slams between Mary and Marshall..and the way Mary actually put things into perspective..to hell with your feelings. In Plain Sight will be a missed show.

I can only think of earlier times and Murphy Brown...Mary is the Murphy of this time and the story should told, so sad that they still do not get it. Perhaps if the execs spoke to more ladies they may have a chance to understand what female business professionals, who are independent are not so damn OVER the TOP such as, fairly legal (fairly tooooo much), may help, but I doubt it since so many loose touch once you get to The Hollywood sense. My experiences alone could be 10 seasons....once again a strong lady is cancelled.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY ARE TAKING THIS SHOW OFF THE AIR. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES AND ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THEIR NEW SEASON. BIG MISTAKE TAKING IT OFF.

I can't believe they are taking this show off. My husband and I have been waiting for it to come back on. We love the characters and all the storylines. I hate it when there is a good show that the whole family can watch and all of a sudden they take it off. Every one I know loves this show. I t really makes me not want to watch the USA network. If they take psych off I will quit watching for sure!!!!!

I want the USA network to explain why they are committing viewer suicide by cancelling yet another program. "They" seem to run our lives, and I am sick of it. Why is it that you cannot listen to the viewer's who incidentally pay for your salaries by subscribing to USA in the first place. You can keep the Psych, and the one about the doc in Hamptons (forgot name, hmmm wonder why), but will not keep IPS? There are not enough shows that are not full of bad words, gory displays, and no humor. And we wonder why our children are the way they are. Their parents are censored by some muckety-muck at USA, Come on USA have some guts and explain WHY you are doing such a ridiculous move, or are you not man/woman enough. Before I get my mouth in trouble, let me leave you with this final thought-you are gutless wonders that decide what we the customer should see. Maybe if enough of us cancel you, you might remember what goes around, comes around.

Great show but I can't argue that a story has a natural arc of conflict and resolution. Some series just keep rewinding and repeating the middle over and over again. If Mary can resolve some of her personal issues, I will say good-bye regretfully but with satisfaction.

In Plain Sight Quotes

One of the most difficult moments in anyone's life is when the fog of childhood lifts and we see for the first time our parents as people.

Mary

Marshall: You are in a different kind of mood this morning.
Mary: Actually, I'm in a really good mood. Which is kind of weird considering where I was 48 hours ago. Then I had a witness off herself and, like that is not bad enough, I've got to play second fiddle to a knucklehead like you.
Marshall: Thanks for lumping me in with kidnapping, attempted rape and suicide. Can't tell you how much that means.
