"I don't want to pull the rug out from under our fans every week and slap them in the face with stuff, but this was the season finale, and it was the long-awaited return of Mr. Yang. Yeah, we kind of wanted to load in with as much stuff as we could. That's a fun way to end the season, I think," Psych's James Roday starts when discussing tonight's finale episode, "Mr. Yin." And for Roday, the airing comes with a lot at stake. Not only is he the star of the show but he directed the noir-style episode, an homage to famed (and one of his favorites) director Alfred Hitchcock, as well. "[Psycho] is the original jaw dropping twist [film] that sort of set everything else in motion. I love that movie; Anthony Perkins is fantastic, and it is shot amazingly. Yeah, that would be my number one!" Roday, talks about not only his favorite Hitchcock film but his favorite scary movie in general. Therefore, he was super psyched (please excuse the bad pun) about the 82nd Academy Awards featuring not only his series guest star Ally Sheedy in a John Hughes tribute but also a horror film montage tribute.

Watch a sneak peek of the season finale of Psych "Mr. Yin Presents..." Season 4 Episode 16 airing Wednesday March 3 at 10pm on USA. Episode Synopsis: Mr. Yang makes good on her promise to return, and this time she's in a cinematic frame of mind as she tests Shawn's knowledge of Hitchcock films and lore in return for clues to the puzzle she's set. Source & Preview
* Ugly Betty (10:01/9:01c ABC) A fire may have ruined the Suarez house in Queens a month ago, but as the investigation drags on in this episode, the family is still under one roof: in Betty's Manhattan apartment. And she'll do just about anything - including dating an obnoxious firefighter (Rich Sommer) - if it will help to speed up the process. Meanwhile, Hilda's nervous about meeting Bobby's parents (Lainie Kazan, Nestor Serrano), and Ignacio and Justin confide in Amanda and Marc, respectively, about their recent displacement. * America's Next Top Model (8/7c The CW ) The 14th cycle begins in typical Top Model fashion with 32 would-be models in Los Angeles bringing out their fiercest expressions for Tyra and the J's in hopes of being one of the 13 finalists. But, this being ANTM, there is plenty of drama before that number is whittled down to a baker's dozen. And the lead dramatist is Angelea, the tough-talking Buffalo gal who just missed the cut last season. Is that why she's back? Tonight's 90-minute season debut also features a guest appearance by Perez Hilton. * Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (10/9c NBC) Lena Olin guest stars as Ingrid Block, the fierce defense attorney of a businessman who's suspected of murdering a woman linked to a Ponzi scheme. Benson and Stabler realize their investigation resembles a murder from 20 years prior, so they reopen that case. Soon Block's tactics get extreme, to the point where the legality of her actions is called into question by DA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston). * Psych (10/9c USA Network ) Shawn once again becomes the target of a madman (or madwoman?) in the fourth-season finale. After finally capturing the serial killer that had eluded his father years before and discovering that the killer was, in fact, a she, Shawn thought he had put Mr. Yang behind him. But a series of deadly scenarios modeled after classic Hitchcock films seems to point back to the imprisoned Mr. Yang. Ally Sheedy returns as the clever psychopath. * High Society (9:30/8:30 The CW ) Welcome to the low-brow of High Society, where drinks and insults are thrown, backbiting is a sport and people are like empty designer handbags - there to impress those who care, but nothing going on inside. The reality series follows Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her inner circle, which includes her mother and sister - and a friend who, after explaining that her friends usually aren't Jewish, black or gay, reveals that her dream job is to work for the United Nations. In the opener, Tinsley relocates to a midtown loft following the breakup of her marriage. Source Here
