TV briefs: USA orders new season of 'Suits'

Very "Suit-ed": The USA Network has ordered a 16-episode fifth season of "Suits."

The series centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm co-led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). This season saw a major shift at the firm that left Harvey at odds with his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) who left to go to Wall Street as an investment banker.

In your "Face": "Face Off: Judge Match" is a Syfy Channel special showcasing the talents of "Face Off's" Ve Neill, Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page, as they go head-to-head in a special make-up competition for their charity. McKenzie Westmore will host the high-level and visually stunning competition that will air 9 p.m. Sept. 2 on the cable channel.

For the competition, the judges will pair up with two team members — a former "Face Off" all-star contestant, as well as a former champion — to create a pair of living chess pieces designed to appear in a colorful, stylized fantasy film.

In keeping with "Face Off's" current season theme of "Life and Death," one of the characters must be pure and pristine while the other is evil and twisted.

At stake is a cash prize for the winning judge's favorite charity and $5,000 for each of their team members.

Father knows best: Season two of the USA Network reality series, "Chrisley Knows best," will premiere with two back-to-back episodes starting at 10 p.m. Oct. 14.

The real-life family comedy follows the lives of Atlanta-based outspoken and overprotective, but very loving husband and father, Todd Chrisley and his colorful clan, including his lovely wife, Julie, and their charming, yet scheming expansive brood.

The buzzy series struck a cultural chord with a large and loyal fan base, and earned its place as the network's youngest original series to date with a median age of 35.
