This is it! The final two episodes of the season for Playing House starting at 10pm/9c on USA . We kick things off with “Officer of the Year” where Emma (Jessica St. Clair) organizes the Pinebrook Policeman’s Ball with the help of Maggie (Lennon Parham) and Rabbi Dan (Kyle Bornheimer). With things on the fence with Tina (Lindsay Sloane), Mark (Keegan-Michael Key) debates who to bring as a date.  Later, the celebration gets wild when Maggie and Bruce (Brad Morris) hit the dance floor.

Playing House season two finale “Celebrate Me Scones” culminates when Maggie (Lennon Parham) surprises Emma (Jessica St. Clair) with tickets to go see their musical hero, Kenny Loggins, in concert.  When things don’t go as planned, the two best friends and Maggie’s younger brother Zach (Zach Woods) risk it all to get closer to the “Danger Zone.”

It’s time to show and share the love for one of the funniest shows on television so be sure to watch live, watch it again On-Demand and tweet your hearts out!

USA Network’s original hit series, Psych premiere’s its fourth season this Friday August 7th at 10/9c. Recently I had a chance to participate in a group interview with the stars of the show James Roday and Dulé Hill to discuss the new season, some funny pop culture references and whatever craziness lives in the minds of this funny and talented duo.

EM: You’ve both played very different characters in other things. I know that Mr. Roday had actually played alongside to Maggie Lawson in Fear Itself and Mr. Dulé you had a wonderful part on WEST WING for a while. So how do you feel now about playing comedy? Do you enjoy it better; do you like doing horror or drama more? How does it feel?

Dulé Hill: I actually enjoy comedy; it’s a lot of fun. After doing seven years of drama on WEST WING to be able to come and work with Roday and the rest of the cast has been a blast. It’s something different, especially working with Roday where he likes to improv a lot it challenges me to work on different muscles that I haven’t used before.

James Roday: Well, first of all I just want to thank you for reminding me that I did in fact appear in Fear Itself; I often forget that. Secondly, I would say I’ve actually done a lot more comedy than I’ve done drama. It’s weird the way that worked out, because when I came out of theater school I took myself way too seriously, so it’s kind of ironic that I ended up sort of going down the comedy path.

Mark Feuerstein is Hank Lawson in the new USA Network original series ROYAL PAINS, which premieres tonight, Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 10/9c, immediately following the hit series BURN NOTICE (at its new time, 9/8c). Recently I had a chance to visit the set of ROYAL PAINS to meet the cast and had the pleasure of chatting with Mark to discus his new role.

EclipseMagazine:    So, should we just start with you telling us about your character?

Mark Feuerstein: Sure. That’s an easy way to begin. All right. So, I am playing Hank Lawson. And my character is, at the beginning of the pilot, a doctor in an ER in Brooklyn. And he’s playing hoops with a bunch of neighborhood kids. And one of them drops down.

I guess the conflict of Hank is that he’s somewhat—I mean there’s one thing that you don’t know from the pilot, which is that in his past, his father lost all the family money in the stock market. And they had to downsize from a nice house in maybe Passaic, New Jersey to a little two-bedroom apartment, and so money is fraught for Hank. And so now he’s got to take care of rich people while resenting them too.

EM: Maybe she’s never known it.

CE: Isn’t that great? Yeah, I think it’s like—it’s like Mr. Big, right?

EM: Yes.

CE: Fantastic! It could just be any number of possibilities. So, what did you ask me?

EM: Just to talk about your character a little bit.

CE: Yes, it’s Mrs. Newberg, and I’m very rich and live in the Hamptons, probably just for the summer. I have other residences, but they’re somewhat—some of them are undisclosed at this point. So, I have a house in the Hamptons in the summertime, and I’m a grandmother of a 22-year-old. That’s showbiz. Yeah, I’m a grandmother of a 22-year-old. And you know, in the first episode—did you see it? Did everybody see it?

EM: Yeah.

CE: Was it good?
