Clairvoyance Pays Off: USA Renews "Psych" For Third Season

Fans of USA's procedural mystery series Psych have a reason to be, well, psyched this morning.

The cabler has ordered a third season of the dramedy, which stars James Roday, Dule Hill, Corbin Bernsen, and Maggie Lawson.

"We are thrilled to bring Psych back for a third season," said USA Network's Jeff Wachtel. "The series has been a critical and ratings sensation since it premiered last summer and continues to gain new viewers and grow its fan base."

USA has ordered 16 new episodes for the third season of Psych, which it plans to roll out in Summer 2008. I guess it didn't take a psychic, fake or otherwise, to predict that announcement.

Hooray! I love Psych! I didn't know there was a debate. It had better be coming back. I can't imagine any show on USA skews younger than Psych. Plus, it brings the funny.

I recently started watching Psych, and it's good fun. Sure, it isn't in the same league as many of the more "serious" programs, but its fun to watch for a good laugh.

I have to say I'm surprised that its being renewed though, I'm used to many of the big networks cancelling shows way too quickly...

Psych is one of the funniest shows on Television, so the fact that it's being renewed doesn't surprise me one bit, but I'm thrilled to know that it's coming back.
James Roday and Dule Hill are one of the best duos on TV (and the best on tv during the summer and winter "seasons" when most things are in reruns.)

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
