The unflappable Jeffrey Donovan is the key to the success of the smash Burn Notice, which debuted in the summer of 2007 on USA Network. Audiences love him, and obviously the producers do too.

They've just given Donovan a raise. Instead of making a mere $55,000 an episode he's getting three times that. The new contract also adds a year to the actor's 7 year deal.

Donovan stars as former spy Michael Westen who is hunting for the people who betrayed him and, along the way, helps people who have troubles of their own. The show is the highest-rated cable drama among 18 - 49 year old viewers, a demo beloved by advertisers.
