The clock has run out on USA’s Necessary Roughness. The cable network  is passing on picking up another season of the football-themed sports dramedy. The show starred Callie Thorne as a psychologist who worked for a New York team.

“We are proud of this show and its writers, which had a unique ability to address topical subjects before they unfolded in real life on the sports pages,” said USA in a statement. “We want to thank [creators] Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, the incredible cast led by Golden Globe nominee Callie Thorne and our partners at Sony Television.”

Necessary Roughness averaged 4 million viewers across three seasons. I dunno. Anybody want to say anything?
