TV Junkie: Interviews with Roday & Hill from 'Psych'

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

At last week's USA Network upfronts we talked to the principals of "Psych," James Roday (above) and Dulé Hill (below) who gave us some insight into the upcoming season. Hint: Malcolm McDowell is in the premiere! We also talked with Roday about last season's epic "Twin Peaks" episode which was a must-watch for everyone, not just "Psych" fans. Tomorrow we'll have cast of "Fairly Legal" in video interviews here on the TV Junkie.

Got your barf bucket handy? Here you go: Ryan Seacrest makes $15 million per year to "host" Fox's "American Idol." I not sure if that's more disgusting than the fact that the show makes $240,000 per minute that it's on the air. "Host" is in quotes because Seacrest is unimpressive as the host of the show - there is nothing that he does on that show that is remarkable or interesting. Contrast that with his radio show where he truly does behave as a host and you can understand the sticker shock of his "Idol" fee.
Lakers fans, if you have a sense of humor about your plight, watch "Sports Show With Norm Macdonald" tonight at 10:30pm on Comedy Central as you can be sure that Macdonald will take the team to task.
