Two USA Network shows bit the dust as Person of Interest squeezed past Suits, and Castle knocked out Covert Affairs. Now the two NYC-based procedurals, both featuring civilians with unorthodox relationships with cops, face off.
Person of Interest – A crime thriller about a presumed dead former-CIA agent, Reese, who teams up with a mysterious billionaire, Finch, to prevent violent crimes by using their own brand of vigilante justice.
Castle – After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard “Rick” Castle (Nathan Fillion gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes. He partners with Detective Kate Beckett, and uses a fictionalized version of her as the main character of his new series.
