TV picks for Dec. 13-19: "Psych,” "Andrew Zimmern, Sherlock Holmes, Michael Buble, Christmas Carol

  • Updated: December 14, 2013 - 2:00 PM

Dulé Hill and James Roday, center, will sing and dance in “Psych.”


James Roday and Dulé Hill may not be ready for Broadway, but they’re more than capable of livening up a two-hour musical edition of “Psych” (8 p.m. Sunday, USA). The lighthearted detective series features 14 original songs, as well as a guest appearance by Ally Sheedy, who reprises her look from “The Breakfast Club.”


The Twin Cities’ own Andrew Zimmern brings it all back home in an episode of “Bizarre Foods America” (8 p.m., Travel) that’s all about the grub at the Minnesota State Fair. By the time the hour is up, you’ll be planning on serving your Christmas ham with a side of cheese curds.


“Walking Dead” star Andrew Lincoln narrates “How Sherlock Changed the World” (8 p.m., TPT, Ch. 2), a look at how reclusive detective Sherlock Holmes managed to make things more elementary for future generations of real-life criminal investigators. The piece also serves as a promotional tool for the brilliant “Sherlock,” which returns to PBS on Jan. 14.


Michael Bublé is out to prove he can sing with anybody in “Michael Bublé’s 3rd Annual Christmas Special” (9 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11), doing duets with both Mariah Carey and Cookie Monster. Hope the caterers don’t mix up their backstage demands. Mariah hates ginger snaps, and Cookie can’t handle Champagne.


The Guthrie Theater isn’t the only institution that has a take on “The Christmas Carol.” TCM hosts an evening of five Hollywood interpretations of the Charles Dickens classic, starting with 1970’s “Scrooge” (7 p.m., TCM), featuring a definitive performance from Albert Finney. If you get through all five, treat yourself to a Christmas goose.
