Coloring question - issues with contrast

How do you achieve the rich and vibrant colors that people are using for their graphics on tumblr (examples under the cut)?
I tried different color layers on Color Burn and Overlay, but they only change the screencap's own colors and don't saturate the screencaps the way I want to.
I'd also like to know how can have saturated colors like in the second image and have it still muted, mine always have too much contrast.

I use Photoshop CS4, TIA.
