I’m a few days late delivering this news, so I’m sure most “Venture Brothers” fanatics are already aware of this, but for those of you who don’t follow James Urbaniak on Twitter, haven’t already listened to all the commentary on the new complete season 4 blu-ray set, or don’t regularly check Jackson Publick’s blog: “Venture Brothers” has been renewed for two more seasons, and a long form “Venture Brothers” special. There’s no word yet on when season 5 is set to begin airing, but that’s pretty much par for the course for this show and the Adult Swim network. Those of us who are fans of the show can now breathe a sigh of relief (or maybe it’s just me that gets nervous after every season finale that Adult Swim will unceremoniously cancel the show in the gap). Exact details are here for those of you who are interested. For those of you who aren’t, you can ignore everything you just read. Good on me for telling you that afterward, right? Anyway, here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC
“Dateline NBC” on NBC
8:00pm: “The Amazing Race” on CBS
“America’s Next Great Restaurant” on NBC
“The Family Crews” on BET
“Food Network Challenge: Easter Cakes” on Food Network
“Nature: Outback Pelicans” on PBS
“Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes” on OWN
“Secret Millionaire” on ABC
“The Simpsons” on Fox
“Taking on Tyson” on Animal Planet
8:30pm: “Bob’s Burgers” on Fox
9:00pm: “The Apprentice” on NBC
“Army Wives” on Lifetime
“Californication” on Showtime. Fourth season finale.
“Chopped: All Stars Tournament” on Food Network
“Mildred Pierce: Parts 1 & 2” on HBO. Starring Pajiban favorite Kate Winslet in the title role and lots of lovely vintage late 20’s/early 30’s costumes and sets. That’s a whole lot of pretty happening right there.
“Oprah Presents Master Class: Oprah Winfrey Part 1” on OWN. So now we’ve moved on to a show produced by Oprah, on Oprah’s network, that’s about what Oprah has to teach all of us. I’m not complaining, really, it’s her money and if this is how she wants to spend it it’s not my place to argue, but I fail to see why other people would bother to watch.
“Sister Wives” on TLC
“Undercover Boss” on CBS
9:30pm: “American Dad” on Fox
10:00pm: “Breakout Kings” on A&E.
“Comedy Central Special: Lisa Lampanelli: Tough Love” on Comedy Central. All I know about Miss Lampanelli is what can be gleaned from her many appearances on various Comedy Central Roast specials which boils down to: she likes having sex with black men. I’m still not sure why that’s so hilarious, but perhaps I’m missing some kind of nuance or subtle undercurrent of social commentary.
“Coming Home” on Lifetime
“CSI: Miami” on CBS
“Kourtney and Kim Take New York” on E
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo
“Shameless” on Showtime. First season finale.
“William and Kate: Inside the Royal Wedding” on TLC
