Sirens

USA Network brings back two dynamic series in January, including a comedy series. But first, from Creator and Executive Producer Aaron Korsh, the critically acclaimed drama Suits returns on Wednesday, January 28 at 10|9c for the remainder of its 4th season. Sirens, the half hour comedy from Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, returns to USA's Tuesday night comedy block on Tuesday, January 27 at 10|9c for a hilarious second season, following a stack of Modern Family reruns from 7-10pm ET. The mid-season premiere of Suits picks up from the stunning cliffhanger, with Louis gaining the leverage needed to finally achieve his ultimate goal - becoming a partner of the firm. Guest appearances this season include Pretty Little Liars star, Troian Bellisario, Billy Miller and Tricia Helfer as well as the return of Stephen Macht, Wendell Pierce, Neal McDonough, Eric Roberts and Zeljko Ivanek.

Season two of the popular comedy series Sirens returns Tuesday, January 27 at 10|9c with two back-to-back episodes. The season reunites Chicago's best EMTs Johnny (Michael Mosley), Hank (Kevin Daniels) and Brian (Kevin Bigley) as they navigate their way through professional and personal drama. Together the comedy-trio discusses and debates its way through life issues, including chance versus coincidence, white knights versus nightingales and strippers versus magicians. Sirens also stars Jessica McNamee, Bill Nunn and Josh Segarra. Guest stars appearing in the 13 episode season include Lenny Clarke, Nora Dunn, Loretta Devine, John Scurti, Steve Schirripa, Jonathan Sadowski, Nikki DeLoach, Aya Cash, WWE Superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin, Brian Doyle Murray, Wayne Knight and Andy Kindler. In its first season, the comedy quickly drew a loyal and consistent audience, earning its place as one of the top new basic cable comedy series debut of the year among total viewers P2+ averaging 1.62MM and in the key P25-54 demo averaging 870,000.
