I thought I learned by now never to be surprised by any of Psych‘s ‘Psych-out‘ moments, but who would have guessed that I would bear witness to an acoustic performance of Tears For Fears‘ ‘Shout‘ (the Comic-Con remix) performed live by Curt Smith himself with vocal assistance from James Roday and Dule Hill? I‘m not even sure Shawn Spencer could have foreseen such an epic performance. Panel members included cast members James Roday (Shawn), Dule Hill (Gus), Tim Omundsom (Lassiter), Maggie Lawson (Juliet), Kirsten Nelson (Chief Vick), and Corbin Bernsen (Henry Spencer) as well as Executive producers Kelly Kulchak and Chris Henze and creator Steve Franks.

How about some of today‘s TV news in 300 words?USA USA USAThe USA network continues its cable dominance with the renewal of 3 hit shows: White Collar, Psych, and Royal Pains. Add the 3 returning shows to the already renewed: In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Burn Notice, and you‘ve got yourself a real rival network on your hands. At this point, USA crushes in the summertime ratings. Bringing these 7 shows back means USA is looking forward to a hot summer 2011.  But if they are able to work their mojo in the fall, basic network channels need to look out. The network could soon be a major contender. USA has their tone, style, and whatever they‘re putting in the water over there on lock. They have successfully mastered their brand to the point that almost every effort is a hit. [THR]Chuck Lands Rob RiggleChuck‘s 4th season has brought with it a ton of casting news. The show cast Linda Hamilton as Chuck‘s mom, and a whole slew of actresses (Olivia Munn, Summer Glau, Stacy Keibler) to play Greta, the revolving undercover agent. Now we have news that funnyman Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) is set to guest star. Riggle will play Jim Rye, a slightly off CIA agent who is brought in to help Chuck with his spy skills.
