'Necessary Roughness' Gets Third Season Order

USA Network has ordered a third season of "Necessary Roughness," the network announced Monday.

The 10-episode pickup completes the renewal of the network's full summer slate, including "Suits," "Burn Notice," "Royal Pains," "White Collar," and "Covert Affairs."

The announcement came from USA Network Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

The drama, which stars Callie Throrne (pictured), averaged 5.3 million viewers on Wednesday nights last summer.
