Royal-Pains-premieres-season-35-jill-hank-kissI was just telling you about White Collar return on January 17, but folks at USA will not give us a break and are premiering season 3.5 of Royal Pains the next day. Now that´s what I call a week to look forward to. A great one two punch from the number one cable network.

So, mark your calendars, Royal Pains is coming back in a few, premiering new episodes Wednesday January 18 2012 10/9 C.

Royal Pains returns, When viewers last saw Dr. Lawson, he was attending to an unconscious Eric Kassabian (guest star Wilmer Valderrama) after he was apparently given the wrong type of medicine by Dr. Van Dyke (guest star Kyle Howard) and Divya (Shetty).  Things get tense in the summer escape of the Hamptons as Divya tries to juggle two jobs, Evan (Costanzo) tries to fit into his fiancée’s complicated family life and Jill (Flint) continues to hide Divya’s work secret. And most importantly, will “HankMed” lose its first patient as Kassabian life hangs in the balance?

Tom Cavanagh returns in a multi-episode arc as Jack, a professional golfer and HankMed client.  Jack’s sudden return to the Hamptons surprises everyone — especially Jill, who continues to find herself drawn to him.  As Hank grows his friendship with the now healthy Jack, he will soon find himself facing a whole new set of challenges as his medical caregiver.  Although Jack’s previous condition has healed, he will soon discover a new medical obstacle tougher than any golf course on the tour.
