'Psych': Shawn Spencer Is Running For Office In Exclusive Sneak Peek (VIDEO)

Shawn Spencer (James Roday) of "Psych" has been a Santa Barbara resident for years, but does his status as a longtime resident mean he'd be a good mayor?

Possibly not, if his behavior as a mayoral candidate is anything to go by. In the Huffington Post's exclusive clip above from the May 1st episode of "Psych," titled "Santa Barbarian Candidate," Shawn goes on local TV to discuss his bid for political office, and that goes about as well as you might expect.

Gus (Dule Hill), who is forced to watch Shawn's interview from the sidelines, does not look like he's having fun. But the whole gambit is part of the "Psych" team's investigation into the murder of Santa Barbara's mayor in what appears to be a surfing accident.

"Psych" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
