NEW YORK, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- James Roday, who stars in USA Network's new hit show PSYCH, received a "Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical" nomination for the International Press Academy's 11th Annual Satellite Awards. Roday is in good company. His competition includes Steve Carrell ("The Office"), James Spader ("Boston Legal"), Ted Danson ("Help Me Help You"), Stephen Colbert ("The Colbert Report") and Jason Lee ("My Name is Earl"). PSYCH, which premiered on USA in July to critical and ratings acclaim, stars Roday ("The Dukes of Hazzard") as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic -- at least that's what he lets them believe. Series also stars Dule Hill ("The West Wing") as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick Gus and Corbin Bernsen ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," "L.A. Law") as Shawn's disapproving father, who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child. Also featured are Timothy Omundson ("Judging Amy," "Deadwood"), Maggie Lawson ("Crumbs," "Inside Schwartz") and Kirsten Nelson ("Everwood").
