Psych cancelled...psych!

It's not an easy deal to be an original show on a basic cable channel. Without the ratings numbers and budgets associated with programs on the major networks, any show that can only be seen beyond channel 13 pretty much already has its head on the chopping block.

However, more and more shows on cable networks, such as USA, TNT, FX, and others, are slowly proving their worth, sticking around for multiple seasons, picking up Emmys, and, most importantly, actually getting viewers.

The latest to stop the axe from falling is USA's Psych, a comedy starring James Roday, Corbin Bernsen, and Dulé Hill. USA has renewed the show for a third season consisting of 16 episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Psych focuses on a "police consultant" (Roday) who has convinced the police department he is psychic. To keep his job and avoid getting prosecuted for a crime he didn't commit, he has to keep up the act and use "heightened observational skills" to solve crimes.

The series debuted in July 2006 and was the highest rated new basic cable show. For more information on the show, read TV.com's previous coverage.

Not my favorite series in the world, but it's a welcome alternative to all the redundant crime shows out there.

As everybody else, I'm also glad Psych has been renewed. I hope this one sticks a while (I've lately been watching, and really liked, a couple of series than has been canceled after no more than 8 or 9 episodes).

Psych-outs should be reserved for those on the show not for those on tv.com. Almost gave me a heart attack and I'm a healthy 25 year old.

I literally freaked (for a few seconds) out because I watch this show intently. So I sent the link to another friend who also really likes the show.

I don't watch Psych, but if it would've been one of the shows I do watch, the headline would've freaked me out.

Good for the people that do watch it.

A couple of the season 2 episodes were really funny, better than Monk even. Regarding cable network shows, is it just me or did the final couple episodes of Rescue Me season 4 feel like a sendoff...

Whoops... correction made! Glad to see the headline is giving people heart attacks though

Whew! That is a scary little title! It's a good thing I read all three words or I would be very unhappy ;) There is one mistake in this story though. Mr. Roday's character is not a cop, he's a private detective. His father was a cop and he wanted him to follow in his footsteps, but he didn't.
