USA Networks ends Covert Affairs

NBCUniversal’s cable channel USA Network has cancelled spy series Covert Affairs after five seasons.

The US net cited low ratings as the reason behind axing the Piper Perabo-fronted drama, which NBCUniversal International Television Distribution sells on the global market.

While season one rated well in 2010 ­– coming close to five million viewers on debut – season five’s final brought in just 1.6 million.

The Universal Cable Productions-coproduced Covert Affairs follows Perabo (Coyote Ugly) as a young CIA operative that goes undercover with the help of a blind special ops agent.
