CBS’ loss, USA’s gain: William Shatner is returning to TV in a guest role on Psych next season.

Shatner will appear on the sixth season playing the estranged father of Detective Juliet O’Hara (Maggie Lawson). He’s described as “a charming con man who wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter. But when the opportunity to pull off a dream con is presented to him, his decision to stay on the right side of the law becomes more complicated.”

Shat’s $#*! My Dad Says was axed after one season despite fairly solid ratings. Psych returns in the fall.
