USA canceled “Fairly Legal,” which ran for two seasons starting in January 2011.

The network also announced that “Common Law” has also been axed this week. The show centered around two Los Angeles Police Department detectives (played by Michael Ealy and Warren Cole) who can not get along and have to go to a couples therapist to true to mend their fences.

Michael Sardo created “Fairly Legal,” and Michael Trucco, Viriginia Williams and Baron Vaughn also starred. Peter Ocko became the new showrunner before the second season, and he brought on a new character named Ben Grogan that Ryan Johnson portrayed.

Shahi, who played mediator Kate Reed on “Fairly Legal,” has appeared in “Old School,” “The L Word” and “Life.” She also contributes her voice to “Young Justice” on the Cartoon Network.

Fear not, though, Shahites; she will soon be appearing on NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” which stars Jesse Spencer.

USA has announced that “Suits” “Necessary Roughness” and “White Collar” will return. A new drama called “Graceland” by Jeff Eastin will be launched next summer. The show “Political Animals” is still awaiting word on its fate.

I loved Fairly Legal and I really enjoyed the new show Common Law. I swear I think I am the only one that loves certain shows. If USA keeps taking off good show they are certainly going the way of NBC and ABC.

I truly enjoyed Fairly Legal and will miss it. What a shame to cancel a show when people look forward to watching it. USA you sure missed the mark.

USA Network was looking to be the one to bring quality shows and now has shown that it is going the way of ABC and not giving quality shows a chance. I will miss Common Law and Fairly Legal.

Too bad. I thought USA vouched for that show, but I guess not. And am not comforted by the Chicago Fire news - a show whose future prospects (and my interest therein) continues to diminish
