Psych

"Psych" review by Suzanne
Returns Monday February 29th on USA Network

USA Network sent me two episodes of the show that air on February 29 and March 14. As usual, the show is hilarious! I thought the March 14th one was the funnier of the two, but both are great.

In the first one, they do a lot of Indiana Jones-type stuff. Cary Elwes returns as Despereaux and does an awesome job.  We also get to see John Rhys Davies in a small guest-starring role (he was in the original Raiders of the Lost Ark movie!).

In the second episode, Shawn and Gus go undercover in a Bachelor-type reality show. It's a lot of fun. Greg Grunberg (Of "Heroes" and many other shows) is the guest-star, among others.  I laughed a lot.

Don't miss them! Future episodes this season sound fun, too, and have a lot of great guest-stars. The show is getting better and better.

MUCH ANTICIPATED NEWS OF USA'S "PSYCH" SEASON 7 PICK UP
 

STARS JAMES RODAY AND DULÉ HILL ANNOUNCE PICK UP OF SERIES

Pineapple Puzzle Presents Fun Mystery for PSYCH-Os to Decipher on Facebook and Twitter

http://www.facebook.com/psych and http://twitter.com/psych_usa

NEW YORK – January 10, 2012 – USA Network's favorite faux psychic and his best friend, along with Santa Barbara's finest, are back in business as PSYCH, starring James Roday and Dulé Hill, has been renewed for a seventh season. Currently USA’s longest running series on air, PSYCH will be back with 16 all-new episodes with fun-filled storylines and A-list guest stars later this year. The announcement was made today by USA Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel.

Actually, it was the series stars who made the announcement though as PSYCH fans first heard the good news from Roday and Hill personally through USA’s popular PSYCH Facebook page and Twitter feed. To build intrigue and momentum of the special news throughout the day, the network shared multiple pieces of a pineapple puzzle and alluded that when complete the puzzle may reveal a special message. The final fourth piece and most delicious slice of pineapple unlocked a special video message from Roday and Hill about the pickup. Roday first told fans in his character Shawn Spencer’s typical nonchalant fashion, that he’s decided to get a new brown belt and needed their help. He then goes on to casually mention, “Oh, and also, PSYCH is officially coming back for a seventh season, which is very cool, but I'm kinda working on this belt situation right now.” Hill, who plays Shawn’s best friend Gus, followed with a shout out to fans thanking them for their support for the show.

"We are always trying to find ways to reward our PSYCH brand ambassadors for their loyalty and passion and social media plays a critical role in how we connect with the people who matter most -- the fans,” said McCumber and Wachtel. "It was exciting to deliver this historical news to them first and before traditional media.”

In 2011, PSYCH delivered more P18-49 (2.31 million) and P18-34 (1.22 million) Live+7 viewers than ever before in its five year run. The show returns to complete its sixth season on Leap Day, Wednesday, February 29 at 10/9c.

With 2.1 million Facebook fans, this cult favorite stars Roday as a police consultant who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic. With help from his best friend and reluctant sidekick (Hill), he continues to solve the mysterious and often bizarre crimes of the Santa Barbara Police Department. PSYCH also stars Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson and Kirsten Nelson.
