Favorite

Psych is an American television comedy-drama aired on the USA Network. It made its debut on Friday, July 7, 2006. Primary filming of the show takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Viewers with a keen eye may notice that in every episode a pineapple appears in frame.

The title of the show refers to the character Shawn Spencer. His is not psychic; he simply has an astonishing capability of noting very small details often missed by investigators at a crime scene. His talent is so impressive that the police, somewhat grudgingly, seek out his assistance with tough cases.

Along for the ride is Shawn's straight arrow best friend, Gus. Gus has a normal job as a pharmaceutical representative. While he often pretends to be disinterested in Shawn's endeavors, he finds himself deeply invested in them anyway. Best friends since childhood, Shawn and Gus share a camaraderie that makes them seem more like brothers instead of friends.

The quirky show found itself a success when it premiered with more than 6 million viewers, making it the highest rated scripted show ever to debut on a cable network. Numerous critics have also roundly hailed Psych as fun, charming and intelligent. The show was nominated for an Emmy in 2010 in the Outstanding Music Composition for a Series category. Also nominated in 2009 for an Emmy in the Best Actor in a Comedy category was the star of the show, James Roday. The show was recently renewed for another season consisting of 16 episodes.

After Eight Seasons, 'Psych' Gets the Boot

Say goodbye to Shawn and Gus... "Psych" has gotten the boot. After eight seasons, USA Network has cut the popular crime comedy staring James Roday and Dule Hill. Wednesday, March 26th will mark the show's final episode. After the show's airing at 9 p.m., the cast, along with series creator Steve Franks, will participate in a one-hour live show and Q and A session, "Psych After Show." "It has been an amazing joyride these last eight years," Franks tweeted.

'Psych' Season Six, Episode Two 'Last Night Gus' Recap

Welcome to the second episode of the sixth season of “Psych” on USA. If it’s cool with everybody, let’s get this party started. Speaking of, that’s how it all started this week: with Shawn (James Roday) trying to spice up a retirement party for the Santa Barbara Police Department desk jockey Jim Dubois before it died a slow death and consumed him and Gus (Dule Hill.) One second, he’s making a probably ill-advised – and awkward – toast. One second that’s exactly what he was doing: commending Dubois on his years of service and mistaking Dubois’s for his mother.

Tonight's Fall Premieres: 'Psych' Returns, Pineapples and All [10/12]

USA Networks has been working hard to promote the popular show "Psych." Besides launching a social media game and sweepstakes  at Hashtagkiller.com leading up to tonight's season premiere, they've been promoting a new phenomena called #pineappling, where, much like planking or coning, the "pineappler" takes a picture of themselves in some sort of unusual position with a pineapple. Not that kind of unusual position, you pervert. The meme (which hasn't exactly taken off like gang-busters) is a reference to the fact that there is a pineapple in every episode of the USA show.

'Psych' Builds To New Season With Social Media Challenge

Admit it, folks. Murder, theft and all, Santa Barbara's not a bad place to spend this coming fall. Well, there's bad news: chances are, no idyllic beach-front home for you or me. But if you dig "Psych," it's probably a nice place to visit. That's exactly where USA Network would love to send you, if you don't mind doing Shawn and Gus a favor before the hit comedy kicks off its sixth season Oct. 12. Stars James Rodday and Dule Hill have filmed a set of special videos based at HashTagKiller.
