Mad Men has the critical buzz, but Burn Notice — another cable show entering its second season — had the viewers last Summer. The USA series brought in 4 million viewers for its premiere and stayed close to that level all season, jumping up to 5 million viewers when DVR-watching was factored in. That's pretty striking for a cable show.
Tonight, Burn Notice is back, with Jeffrey Donovan once again helming things as Michael Westin, a former spy who was "burned" (or fired) and has set out on a mission to find out who ended his spying career — and why. The show's Miami setting is perfect for a sizzling Summer series, and it has Bruce Campbell. What's not to love? Plus, to make things even hotter for season two, the first episode features an appearance by Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer.
If you didn't see the first season, the whole thing is up on USA's site. Will you be watching when the show starts tonight? You can watch a promo for the second season and one of Donovan's funny "Ask a Spy" videos if you read more.
