List of Funny Crime Dramas TV Shows like Psych

Updated on August 28, 2011

Psych You Out In The End

We've followed Psych's fake psychic Shawn and long suffering buddy Gus through more seasons of weird situations and even weirder solutions.

Here's our list of other TV shows like Psych that you just might love too. The common threat that makes them similar to Psych is that they are off beat crime dramas that have varying levels of humor, and weird unexpected solutions to a range of problems.

Read on to enjoy our list of TV show similar to Psych.

The Mentalist

Does this plot premise sounds similar to Psych? A former charlattan psychic now consults for the police, more specifically the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Patrick Jane is a more polish version of the "psychic" on Psych. Although there are laughs to be had on this show, its has an overall darker atmosphere, with chilling serial killers among other things. 


This is a detective that uses his fantastic powers of deduction to solve crimes, even as he battles the inconvenience of his own pesky mental issues.

This is one of the funniest dective dramas around. Dare I say that this TV Show might even be funnier than in some aspects than Psych.

Lie to Me

This show stars Tim Roth with a fantastic cast of sharp intelligent characters.

This is a smart and intelligent TV Show about a group that specialises in using science to discover the truth from people. Its use of science in solving the different mysteries is similar to Psych. Although it is a more serious show than Psych, it does have its funny moments.

Watch this series if you want to learn how to spot the next lie that comes your way.

      There is only one Psych, so out of principle I've refused to watch The Mentalist. The humor of Sean and Gus is beyond what I've seen on any other show but maybe there will be more shows developed inspired by the premise. Good hub.
