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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
