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
A while back, I told you about "Burn Notice," the new USA show about an exposed spy trying to figure out who let his name be known, starring Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell. It got a commercial-free premiere after the final episode of "The Starter Wife" and ended up pulling in 4 million viewers, even more than the "Starter Wife" finale.
It's normal for a show to drop some viewers after its premiere, but not "Burn Notice." Last week — a holiday week, no less — "Burn Notice" stayed steady. I haven't been watching the show, but numbers like this, plus some strong reviews, make me think it must have something good going for it. Tell me: Are you watching "Burn Notice"? And, if so, why should I check it out?
This summer's first fizzy TV pleasure draws to a close tonight, as "The Starter Wife" airs its sixth and final episode. I've been surprised at how much I've enjoyed getting to know Molly, Joan, Rodney and the rest of the Malibu crowd, and I'm curious to see how it all wraps up tonight (hopefully not with Molly in the arms of the judgmental, cheesy, annoying Sam, but we'll see). While not every episode of this series has been a winner, it's had some great one-liners, some funny self-referential Hollywood references, and a ton of great moments from Debra Messing, who's shown charm and range in a role that could have been two-dimensional.
After "The Starter Wife," USA will show the premiere of "Burn Notice," a show about an exposed spy (Jeffrey Donovan) trying to discover who sold him out. It seems a bit odd to pair a spy thriller with "The Starter Wife," but the show looks like it could be funny — and hey, Bruce Campbell's along for the ride as a former military intelligence officer, which should get the series some cult fans, at least.

I happened to catch this Old Spice ad on TV the other night, and it's so subtly hilarious that I just had to share it. Featuring Bruce Campbell — star of such cult classics as Army of Darkness and Evil Dead II — the campy spot just seems perfect for a retro brand like Old Spice. I particularly love the ascot, the never-ending sailboat panorama, and the chainsaw propped up against the fireplace. My favorite user comment on the YouTube page: "He willed that fire into existence."
