For those of you who don’t know the TV show Psych, you are missing out on many levels. It is one of the best TV shows out there (my personal favorite).

Psych also has many online platforms to engage fans.

If you’re talking social media, Psych is great at that too. Its Facebook page has 2,671,099 likes with 120,712 people talking about the page. Twitter is filled with fans liking and interacting with the stars of the show @DuleHill (Gus), @corinbernsen (Poppa Bear Henry), @Odmunson (Lassie), @maggielawson (Jules), and the official Twitter pages of the show. Feel free to find all of the Twitter pages and check out the engagement on each. I can assure you there’s a lot of it.
