    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").
