Tv Season Info

Therapist Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) has her hands full during the second season as she juggles her secret relationship with athletic trainer Matt Donnally (Marc Blucas), IRS woes and a full roster of athletes in crisis. One such athlete is New York Hawks wide receiver Terrence "T.K." King (Mehcad Brooks), who struggles to rebound from his shooting and turns to drugs to cope. As the pressure to return to the field mounts, the arrival of promising rookie Damon Razor (guest star Gaius Charles) only increases T.K.'s worries. But despite the problems facing the individual players, the team's biggest challenge comes in the form of owner Marshall Pitman (guest star Evan Handler), whose contentious divorce and money woes lead him to rope team "fixer" Nico Careles (Scott Cohen) into some dubious practices that could jeopardize the Hawks' future.

Critic Reviews for Necessary Roughness Season 2

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

If the show doesn't score a touchdown, that's mostly because its subject is more complex and darker than USA "character dramas" are designed to handle. That's not a knock on Roughness or other USA shows, which are some of cable's most delightful.

I just don't get the appeal.

I see an entire season of a whole new wonderful kind of crazy for Dr Dani to deal with. Bring it on.
