Its shows of recent vintage, including the sleek, sexy and casually profane Suits and the gritty undercover drama Graceland, have started to move USA into edgier, bolder territory. Two new Thursday dramas, Rush (9/8c) and Satisfaction (10/9c), are furthering that evolution, threatening to go over the top with their shock-value content in what looks like a bad case of FX/AMC envy. The results are decidedly mixed.

Lucas Neff and Shannon Woodward

Alert to Great Pumpkin fans: You'll need to be almost as patient as Linus for this year's annual showing of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which ABC is saving for Halloween night itself, at 8/7c, kicking off Wednesday's great lineup of comedy (though considerably less great without The Middle in the equation).

Responsible mom Kate even gets into the Halloween spirit herself, accepting an invitation from her cute neighbor to attend a costume party at his house — and not being shy about showing her interest in him when she arrives.
