Our sports options may be a bit more limited this week (hope you like basketball and hockey), but while the Daytona 500 tries to get under way, there's a few other items to keep an eye on in this week's listings. One of our favorites is coming back on the air, while a couple of brand new shows also compete for our attention. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

Daytona 500
Yes, again. The Great American Race has been bumped to Monday night, and could even slide to Tuesday if the rain in central Florida doesn't let up by tonight. Hopefully they get the race in, seeing NASCAR's premiere race under the light's is sure to be a wild affair, if they can get in all 500 miles.
(February 27th, Fox, 7PM)

Psych
One of our favorite shows, it features fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer and his best friend Gus bumbling their way through various murder investigations. This usually includes a pineapple and multiple 60s/90s references, so if that sounds like your kind of procedural, you should be watchin this week as it returns from midseason hiatus with guest star Cary Elwes again filling the role of master art thief Despereaux.
(February 29th, USA, 10PM)

Awake
If that's not your kind of detective show, try this one on for size. NBC's latest attempt features Detective Michael Britten alternating between two different worlds after a tragic car crash, where in one he and his wife survived, while in the other he and his son are the only survivors. The hook seems to be figuring out which one is the dream and which is real, while of course solving various murders the whole time.
