USA Network Delays Premiere Of ‘Common Law’

The USA network has decided to push the premiere date of its new freshman series Common Law to the summer of 2012, instead of its originally planned January 26th debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The network will instead rely on the return of its other hit shows, airing new episodes of White Collar with stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, as well as Royal Pains that features leading actors Mark Feuerstein and Paulo Costanzo.

The character network looks to be bringing Common Law’s premiere to the summer schedule, a time that seems more promising to USA Network, who has previously launched new series with great success during those hot months.

For the unaware, Common Law stars both actors Michael Ealy (The Good Wife, Californication) and Warren Kole (The Chicago Code, NCIS:Los Angeles), who play two dysfunctional Los Angeles detectives by the name of West Mitchell and Travis Marks. The duo will have to attend couples therapy as ordered by their captain. The series is written by Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley.
