Psych's James Roday on Shawn and Juliet, Gus' Growing Pains and Breaking All the Rules

James Roday

You don't have to remind Psych star James Roday that his USA series has a rabid fan base — especially after those fans were forced to wait an extra three months for the show to return.

"The Psych-O's are impatient, that's why we love them," Roday tells TVGuide.com. "They're foaming at the mouth. Sometimes it's for Psych episodes, sometimes it's for turkey."

But with great fans, comes great responsibility. So the show had to be very careful when, after five years of will-they-or-won't-they tension, Psych kicked off its sixth season with Shawn (Roday) and Juliet (Maggie Lawson) as a full-fledged couple. It's been a long time coming, but Roday is all too familiar with the TV graveyard filled with shows that died after their lead characters coupled up.

"You're always worried you're going to jump the shark with stuff like this because... read more

The outrageous comic played it straight — well, for her anyway — as the owner of an adulterous dating website who became a suspect in the murder of one of her clients. Silverman held her own in dramatic scenes opposite the formidable Julianna Margulies, as her character's non-monogamous philosophy caused Alicia to ponder her extra-marital attraction to law-firm colleague Will Gardner (Josh Charles).

Question: I was just watching Human Target, and as someone who lives in San Francisco, I was wondering how often shows are actually shot on location and what are the factor conditions. I get a San Francisco vibe from Human Target, which I didn't get from Monk. Both Dexter and Burn Notice take place in Miami, but I usually get more of a Los Angeles vibe from Dexter. Many shows have episodes that take place at universities and I swear I am always looking at the UCLA campus.

Critic's Notebook: Who Should Win the Emmys?

Jon Hamm, Julianna Margulies

Most years, the best we can hope for from an Emmy night is a few new winners and a few (arguably, as always) correct winners. This year, the probability for fresh blood at the winners' podium is especially high, given what a terrific season it was for freshman series. (The same will not be said for the batch of new shows about to premiere over the next month.) What follows aren't exactly predictions, because that game can be such an unhappy crapshoot, given the capricious nature of Emmy voters, who tend to vote for what they've always voted for, year after year — until they suddenly don't. (For a list of nominees, and a chance to play along, click here)

This is my take on how I'd like to see things go in the major categories, with some handicapping on why some are more likely to win than others... read more

Premise: An ex-cop suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder solves crimes with various (and usually exasperated) sidekicks in tow in this first-rate mystery with a breakout Emmy-winning star in Tony Shalhoub. The 'defective detective' may have an abundance of phobias (heights, crowds, and even milk, among them), but he also has razor-sharp deductive skills, which he uses to help the San Francisco police with especially baffling cases.
