Psyched up

The premiere of the new USA Network series PSYCH is the highest-rated opening episode of any new basic cable series this year. Bill Rabkin & I wrote an episode for PSYCH that will be airing later this summer.

In all, 6.1 million total viewers tuned in,
scoring USA’s best numbers since the two-hour "The 4400" debut
harvested 7.4 million viewers in July 2004.

The news wasn’t so good for MONK, which kicked off with strong ratings but they were the lowest season debut numbers since it’s first season. One reason for the dip could be MONK’s new timeslot — the series was shifted an hour earlier to accomodate PSYCH. Bill and I have also written an episode of MONK, which airs July 28th.
