USA NETWORK INVITES “Psych” FANS TO STAY Up All Night AT THE

 

Psych SLUMBER PARTY”

FRIDAY NIGHT FEBRUARY 15 BEGINNING AT MIDNIGHT

 

 

 

FANS TO VOTE FOR THE EPISODES TO AIR DURING THE MARATHON

 

7 EPISODES. 6 HOURS. ZERO SLEEP.

 

 

The Seventh Season of Psych Premieres on USA on Wednesday, February 27 at 10/9c

To get Psych’s loyal fans of delicious flavor fired up for season seven of PSYCH, James Roday, Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson and Maggie Lawson will host the first-ever, all night PSYCH SLUMBER PARTY on Friday, February 15, 2013, starting at 12/11c PM through 6/5c AM on February 16. This special pajama-worthy festival will feature some of the cast enjoying their own slumber party along with a smorgasboard of social zaniness that only Santa Barbara’s Finest can deliver to its legions of self proclaimed PSYCH-Os.

 

Starting on Friday, January 18, USA is inviting the show’s loyal fans determine the episodes to air during the PSYCH SLUMBER PARTY! The show’s creator Steve Franks personally selected his favorite 20 and the fans will vote from there to narrow it down to the final seven. Fan participation in the voting also enters them into the PSYCH sweepstakes to win one of 500 exclusive Slumber Party Prize Packs, which they’ll receive in time for the PSYCH-tivities. Fans can vote everyday through Thursday, January 31, on the PSYCH official website psych.usanetwork.com, or the show’s Facebook page, facebook.com/psych.

From pillow forts, sleeping bag races, a pajama fashion show, to late night snacks – fans will see their favorite psychic detective and the rest of the cast like they’ve never seen them before.

 

The six-hour slumber party is all about the fans, the PSYCH-Os who have made PSYCH USA Network’s current longest running original scripted series with over two million Facebook fans. The show follows the adventures of a young police consultant who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute, he attempts to convince the precinct detectives that he's psychic.

 

PSYCH is executive produced by Steve Franks, Kelly Kulchak and Chris Henze, from Universal Cable Productions in association with Tagline Pictures. Mel Damski serves as executive producer/director. Bill Callahan is executive producer. Saladin K. Patterson, Andy Berman and Todd Harthan are co-executive producers/writers. Kell Cahoon is consulting producer.

    So, very limited commercials b/c 7 40min shows in 6 hrs means just in shows alone that leaves less than 80mins for commercials plus all that slumber party breaks to cover all 6hrs.

    I wonder if the advertisers are going to look into just how much interest this gets b4 they place ads & probably even product placement in the slumber party “skits”. I also wonder if some advertisers are already paying up front for higher than normal ads/placement to cover that loss of over 40min of overnight commercials. I also wonder if USA thinks that loss of 40min of ads won’t matter b/c PSYCH-O’s will watch the ads much more live (b/c they don’t want to miss the slumber party skits) & b/c PSYCH itself overnight would do better than normal overnight programming.

    I think that with a Friday to Saturday overnight is the best night to do it & PSYCH is def USA’s best show to attract all those 18-49 & 18-25 male & females demo’s.

    Seeing as I have no tv, & I have no interest in rewatching episodes b/c I have so much new to me shows that I want to watch, I wonder if the Slumber Party “skits” will be available on psych.USAnetwork.com or at the very least youtube or the sites that online viewers watch episodes w/o commercials.

    This is what they call promoting, airing repeats late night? USA just throws this show out there and doesn’t care if anybody watches
