Title Card


June 28th 2011

Welcome to the Royal Pains Fun Page! There are lots of sources for Royal Pains information on the internet. First and foremost is the official USA Network Royal Pains site (news, episode guide, photo gallery, et-freakin’-cetera) and the official Royal Pains Facebook and the official Royal Pains Twitter feed. Considering the wealth of information (and other cool stuff) available at the fingertips of the average fan, I was hesitant to wade into the fray with a mere fan site. After all, what can you find here that you can’t find from an official source? Just a fan perspective, I suppose, and all the information that one obsessed fan can dig up.Right now that’s not too much, but I’ll be adding to it as the seasons pass. (Royal Pains third season begins June 29th 2011.) My plan includes episode reviews, ratings, spoilers, interviews and more. The Royal Pains Fun Page joins a few other fun pages I have up now, including The Monk Fun Page and The Psych Fun Page. Yes, I really like the USA Network shows. The “Blue Skies” and “Characters Welcome” formula works for me. I’m happy to contribute in any way I can. I would appreciate any and all feedback. Please, enjoy!

The Season 3.0 Press Release from USA Network

USA will premiere the third season of its #1 hit series, ROYAL PAINS, on Wednesday, June 29, at 9/8c. The show will be the launching pad for USA's new original series NECESSARY ROUGHNESS at 10/9c. For the final cliffhanger last season, we find Hank (Mark Feuerstein) left alone as the summer comes to an end. Now that summer has returned, will things at HankMed resume to its normal rhythms or will it be a whole new summer in the Hamptons?

ROYAL PAINS was USA’s #1 show in 2010 in P25-54 (3.5 million), P18-49 (3.1 million), total viewers (7.33 million) and households (5.16 million).

In ROYAL PAINS, Mark Feuerstein stars as Dr. Hank Lawson, the go to "doctor for hire" for all of the Hamptons. The series also stars Paulo Costanzo, Reshma Shetty and Jill Flint. ROYAL PAINS is written and executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski and Michael Rauch. Rich Frank also serves as executive producer along with Paul Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz from Prospect Park. The series comes from Universal Cable Productions. ROYAL PAINS films entirely in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations around the Hamptons.

The season picks up at the start of a new summer. Has Hank healed his relationship with Boris (Campbell Scott)? Will the impending birth of Boris' child change him? What happens to Divya now that she's defied her parents and called off her wedding to Raj (Rupak Ginn)? When we last saw Jill, she was flying off to work at a South American clinic; how has her trip impacted her relationship with Hank? How has Eddie (Henry Winkler) survived his prison stay in Florida? Evan left the Hamptons with dream girlfriend Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) for a vacation; is she too good to be true? These questions and more will be answered this coming summer.

Emmy-Award winning actor Ed Asner (“UP,” “Mary Tyler Moore Show”) guest stars as Ted Roth, Hank and Evan’s grandfather, who has not been in contact with Eddie Lawson (Henry Winkler) for over 35 years. Other guest stars this season include Shiri Appleby (“Life Unexpected”), Natalie Zea (“Justified”), Emily Bergl (“Desperate Housewives”), Jonathan Tucker (“The Black Donnellys”), Joanna Gleason (“The West Wing”), David Rasche (“Rubicon”) and NFL wide receiver Greg Jennings.

Multiple Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actor Henry Winkler continues to recur in his role as Eddie R. Lawson; plus Campbell Scott returns as Boris, Brooke D'Orsay returns as Paige Collins, Christine Ebersole returns as Ms. Newberg and Paola Turbay returns as Marisa.
