USA Network announced today that it is not picking up the Tom Ellis medical drama for Season 2.

The news was better, however, for fellow freshman drama Satisfaction, which scored a renewal despite drawing very similar numbers to Rush.

Satisfaction premiered in July to 1.7 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, while Rush debuted to 1.7 mil and a 0.4. With their recent finales, Satisfaction wound up with 1.3 mil/0.4, while Rush drew 1.6 mil/0.3.

Explaining the pick-up, USA Network President Chris McCumber said in a statement. “Satisfaction sparked a cultural conversation about modern love and marriage in today’s world.” Also helping the Matt Passmore starrer was better Live+7 DVR playback lifts (+74 percent in the demo, per Deadline) than Rush delivered.
