Why do my image colors look drastically different in Photoshop than Lightroom on two calibrated monitors?

I am using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS5. I have two monitors, both are calibrated, (one is a better screen and more precise but they are very close.) When LR is open I can drag it from one screen to another and there is very minimal change in color. But when I export the image from LR as a psd or tiff and open that in PS, the colors are very *very* different from one screen to another, as well as very different from the image I am seeing in LR. Note that: * The image in LR has had adjustments made it to * Tiff files look fine from screen to screen in Preview * exporting as adobe 1998 RGB and Prophoto space causes the same problem.
