Just another reason to cancel cable. One of the few shows left we cared enough to watch. Good bye USA.


why is it when you find a show you like, enjoy and has a little intellegance, someone decides it has to go, so they can bring in some reality/nonsence to replace it. I also like the defenders it was a cute show, and intellegent, but that went too. maybe they should do a focus group and see what people enjoy instead of what they think we should enjoy. The ratings seem high enough for more seasons, and i hate only 8 shows, what happened to 13 weeks, if you havent noticed i think tv has been in reruns since thanksgiving, with 450 channels, i still cant find anything to watch!


I agree it's bs to keep taking off good well liked
shows and putting on or keeping boring stupid
shows. In Plain Sight has good ratings leave
it on. Your going to lose your viewing public.


I can't understand if the ratings are good then why cancel it????????????????? People get on my nerves. You the network of USA should really look at the ratings and how it brings in an audience. This should really be looked at!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I love this program please reconsider dropping it after season 5. What's up with Marshall on Blue Bloods? Hope its just temporary and he goes back to In Plain Sight.


They can't do this! In Plain Sight is an amazing show, it has potential to go on for at least another season, that longer than 8 episodes! I am very disappointed.


I can't believe that they're taking "In Plain Sight" off on USA. I am very disappointed, because this is one of the few shows that we look forward to every season. We (my husband and I) are still hoping that the USA network will reconsider. I can't really understand the dates that the show is supposed to come back on. That is the reason I was looking on this website to find out when Mary will have her baby.


I c
believe they're taking In Plain Sight off on USA It is one of the few


OMG!!!! "In Plain Sight" nooooooo!!!! They taking all my shows!!!


I agree it is BS, when it is one of USA best shows, really the only one I like, Necessary Roughness is boring and stupid along with most of the other shows. If fifth season is it, it is probably it for me with USA.
