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!

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
