USA orders more Psych

Psych_gus_shawnUSA Network is losing Monk this year, but it's not about to let Psych go. The adventures of Shawn and Gus will continue. USA announced today that Psych is coming back for season five, with 16 new episodes ordered up.

This, my friends, is a no-brainer. Psych is one of USA's more reliable hours, a comedy-mystery series that has a loyal following. This past summer season -- which will soon be completed in the winter when the second half of the episodes air beginning in late January (the date hasn't been confirmed yet) -- the show performed especially well in younger demographics.

For me, Psych has always been more about the characters than the crimes. It's the teamwork between James Roday and Dule Hill that makes Psych tick. They're like a really good comedy team, in the tradition of Abbott & Costello or Martin & Lewis, but without either guy being a stooge. Maybe that makes them more Cheech & Chong, sans the smoke?

Well, whatever the allusion, they have terrific chemistry, and creator Steve Franks knows it. If they're not improvising a lot of the shtick they do, the writers are working with them for all the little goofy references in there. It makes everything more interesting and fun.

Thanks so much for the tips on finding the pilot of White Collar, been watching the show anyway but w/no idea who the girlfriend is and why she's missing...kind of like coming into the middle of a story.

Lisa, if you go to the usa network web site you can look at the schedule and they replay all there shows multiple times. Some saturdays they have marathons of all the episodes. Also if you go to videos and then pick white collar they have all the episodes there to watch online for free.

Question for anyone...White Collar has taken Psych's spot while the latter is on hiatus. WC is not available on demand as is Psych and Monk. Anyone know why not and I think I missed the pilot - is it on Hulu?

I'm so psyched about this!

Someone has to say it, may as well be me.
