With ratings being ever so low (hovering at around 1.6 million viewers, as opposed to the usual 3-4 million for a USA show- and that would be for a show that is more than 1 season!), it seems like the experiment that is Rush on USA Network may be over after it’s freshman run of 12 episodes. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up, and regardless if the show is cancelled after season 1 or not, I still commend and applaud the channel for taking some risks in trying to change up the genres of their shows, just to try to gain more viewers, and restore the network to the glory days in terms of cable ratings. So if you were a new viewer, would I encourage you to watch Rush, the show that deals with an egocentric concierge doctor for the rich and famous, who treats clients who are discreet? Or is this show a bypass? I would encourage you actually (the show takes a few episodes to find its feet), as Rush (Tom Ellis) is a very interesting person, it’s as simple as that.
