Louis' next move revealed in 'Suits' promo -- exclusive

21 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Suits fans have been waiting months to see what will happen now that Louis (Rick Hoffman) has figured out that Mike (Patrick J. Adams) doesn't have a law degree—and that those closest to him at the firm have been hiding that fact. In August's midseason finale, Louis used the knowledge as leverage to make a demand: "Pearson Specter Litt." Will Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey (Gabriel Macht) make him a name partner? And what might that mean for Mike? Get a sneak peek at the new promo below. Suits resumes its fourth season Jan. 28 at 10 p.m. Et on USA. »

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman deserves Globe and SAG nominations

24 November 2014 5:35 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There wasn't a more impassioned and heartbreakingly gut-wrenching performance by an actor on TV this past year than that delivered by Rick Hoffman on the mid-season finale of USA Network’s legal drama "Suits" back in August. Let's hope Globe and SAG voters agree by bestowing a much-deserved nomination on Hoffman next month. -Break- Hoffman plays Louis Litt, an insecure, eccentric and misunderstood attorney who steadily unravelled this past season. He snapped when he found out that his closest friends and colleagues have been lying to him for years. Litt's cathartic explosion as he unleashed the anger and hurt that had been pent up for so long left fans of the show reeling. Hoffman's ability to convey this raw and unbridled rage, as Litt confronts those that have betrayed him, made him one of TV's most impressive performers of the year. As I can't get his performance out of my mind, »

The Leftovers Recap: The Way We Were

24 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The penultimate first season episode of The Leftovers takes us back in time three years, to the days leading up to the Sudden Departure. And, although the hour shows us exactly what its title promises — “The Garveys at Their Best” — it also reveals the cracks in the foundation of the family that probably would’ve broken it up even if the world hadn’t been turned upside-down. Shall we rewind?

'Suits' creator talks Louis' resignation, teases midseason finale

20 August 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Suits fans were shocked after the Aug. 13 episode when Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) resigned from Pearson Specter—seconds before Harvey (Gabriel Macht), accompanied by Donna (Sarah Rafferty), was to deliver the news that Jessica (Gina Torres) was firing him. Creator Aaron Korsh says there were many incarnations of that ending: “When the writers first pitched me that he was gonna get fired, I didn’t like it. If he was gonna help get them out of this jam, I didn’t like Harvey for wanting to fire him, and I didn’t like Jessica for wanting to fire him. I »

Suits: Season Four Ratings

14 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, the ratings for the Suits TV show dropped quite a bit. Will they continue to fall so that the series is in danger of being cancelled, or is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed for a fifth season (so there will be enough episodes for syndication)? Stay tuned.

Suits revolves around the exploits of superstar attorney Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht) and his associate and protegé Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). The show's cast also includes Rick Hoffman, Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, and Meghan Markle.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

5 August 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is returning to Pearson Specter on this week’s “Suits,” but will his homecoming change the dynamic between the prodigal son and his stubborn mentor, Harvey (Gabriel Macht)?

If Variety‘s exclusive preview of Wednesday’s episode is any indication, it appears that the law firm’s resident tiger may be capable of changing his stripes after all.

On the Aug. 6 episode, titled “Exposure,” Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey try to outmaneuver the relentless Sean Cahill (guest star Neal McDonough), as he goes after the firm’s files on the Gillis Industries takeover. Meanwhile Louis (Rick Hoffman) struggles to hide the illicit deal he made to win that fight; evidence of which will bury the firm. And Mike acclimates to his new situation, while reeling from some troubling news.

Suits” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on USA Network.

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman talks Louis' dangerous moves

23 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Suits, “Litt the Hell Up,” stop reading now.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) once again made a move that unintentionally hurt Harvey’s position in the battle for Gillis Industries. Louis fixed it by tricking Charles Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts) into doing business with him by making him believe he hates Harvey as much as Forstman does—a move that Harvey called brilliant, and rewarded by suggesting they drink scotch from Louis’ “You Just Got Litt Up!” mugs. But Forstman had the last laugh, insisting that Louis run »

23 July 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We’re still adjusting to seeing former dynamic duo Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Mike (Patrick J. Adams) on opposite sides of the conference table, but “Suits” seems to be relishing the chance to toy with our emotions — and Variety has an exclusive preview of tonight’s episode to prove it.

We can’t help but love Mike’s swagger now that he has the upper hand on his former mentor, and in the sneak peek below, Mike seems to be enjoying seeing Harvey come to him hat in hand — but will the pair be able to make a deal?

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of Suits, “Pound of Flesh,” stop reading now. Creator Aaron Korsh talks about the “guns-down” hour that gives Sean Cahill (Neal McDonough) and Charles Forstman (Eric Roberts) more ammunition.

Mike didn’t really want to get in bed with Forstman, so he hadn’t officially taken his money yet. In the end, Forstman went behind Mike’s back and got Jonathan to accept it—twisted—and was like, “We’re partners, even if you don’t want to be.” Tell me about casting Eric Roberts. As a viewer, you »

'Suits' creator thinks you're being too hard on Mike

16 July 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The battle for Gillis Industries has fans of Suits (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Et on USA) wondering just how low Mike and Harvey will go. To recap: Harvey revealed a portion of Mike’s questionable past to Gillis, and to retaliate, Mike momentarily kept Harvey’s father’s master tapes from him. To throw Harvey’s ally Louis off his game before a court appearance, Mike made Louis believe that his ex, Sheila, had gotten engaged. Letting his emotions distract him cost Louis the respect of his “best friend” Harvey, which made Louis angry enough to gloat when he cut »

In a sneak peek of tonight's 'Suits,' Louis practices his pitch to Jessica (with visual aids)

It’s clear from our sneak peek at tonight’s episode of Suits (below) that when we start the hour, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) has yet to learn that Jeff Malone (Db Woodside) has joined Pearson Specter. As he preps his long overdue pitch to Jessica on why he should be the one to lead the charge against Eric Woodall’s (former) minion, just imagine the intrigue when they presumably team up to face off with Woodall’s new SEC bulldog—played by recurring guest star Neal McDonough—later in the season.
