With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our lineup of USAs original signature dramas. The renewal comes mere weeks before Covert Affairs returns for the second half of its fourth season, which wrapped its summer run in mid-September. It was one of summers top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million viewers. When Covert Affairs returns for the remaining six episodes, co-creatorsMatt Corman and Chris Ordpromise a “totally different show” following CIA agent Annie Walker’s (Piper Perabo) decision to fake her own death and go deep undercover in her continued mission to topple Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). “This change that we see in Annie at the end [of the finale] is a seismic one and a major one,”Corman told THR in September . “It’s going to launch us into a back six where we see a totally different Annie and a totally different show, and we hope people enjoy it.” “Every episode and every script we’ve been doing is exciting because we get to see a whole new side to Annie and how she operates, and the choices she’s forced to make are a whole new chapter. She’s never been faced with many of these challenges and she doesn’t have the support system to help her. It’s very interesting how she copes with this new paradigm,” Ord told THR. Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Hill Harper also star in the Universal Cable Productions series fromCormanandOrd, who are executive producers along withDoug Liman, David Bartis, Gene KleinandStephen Kay. Gorham will direct the fourth episode of the remaining half of the season. International locations featured this season include Medellin, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva. Covert Affairs’ renewal comes as USA preps its big original comedy push following the syndication debut of Modern Family, and the return of veteran drama White Collar later this month.

Although Demi had already seated these 4 girls they were not guaranteed a spot on “X Factor” live programming. Any or all could be eliminated and their seat taken by another act that Demi felt had more potential. Here are the results for “X Factor” USA’s 4 chair challenge for the “girls” category. Simone Torres sang first. The “X Factor” judges were not impressed. Simon Cowell thought her performance was a little too much like Karaoke but Demi Lovato didn’t agree. Demi couldn’t let Simone go so she gave her a seat and sent Bree Randall home. Danielle Geimer was up next. She gave a beautiful rendition of “Georgia on my Mind” which blew Demi Lovato away. Danielle took a seat and Demi sent Simone Torres packing. Rylie Brown wasn’t as lucky.

“Your organization never attempted to contact me directly to discuss this matter. Had you done so, perhaps you would have a better understanding of my love for amateur boxing and my commitment to protect fighters by giving them the best possible opportunities this business can offer.” Butler, in his letter addressed to Tyson that was released to the media, said, “These young boxers are foregoing their Olympic hopes and the hopes of our nation in exchange for a professional boxing contract now. You are offering these athletes pennies on the dollar of what they could be worth with an Olympic medal, or even potentially just being an Olympian.” Tyson, a former amateur heavyweight champion who just missed making the 1984 U.S. Olympic team, defended his signing of 152-pound prospect Erickson Lubin on Tuesday, the day he turned 18. “No one knows better than I the pitfalls of amateur and professional boxing,” Tyson wrote. “This is precisely why I am compelled to make Iron Mike Productions a transparent company. Our priority is the well-being of our fighters and to produce the most exciting fights we can and in the process uplift the sport of boxing.” According to The Post, Tyson added, “I love my country and I love the liberties living in a democracy affords. These young fighters have worked diligently and deserve the right to pursue the best path they deem fit for themselves. Unfortunately, many of them can’t wait around for a very slim shot at Olympic glory.” Tyson said USA Boxing’s poor record of producing medalists in the last several Olympics might have something to do with young boxers deciding to forgo Olympic training for a pro career. “Our country hasn’t had a male boxing gold medalist since 2004 (Andre Ward) , which could be why many young hopefuls decide to turn professional sooner,” he wrote. He also wrote, “Many of these boxers are like me in that they are from poverty-stricken communities and boxing is their only way to a better life. They have obligations beyond your personal vision for them.
