I promised all the other “Venture Brothers” fanatics out there that I’d update them as soon as I heard anything about a new season. Well, since Jackson Publick has not posted anything of substance on his blog for about four months, I wasn’t checking every day and missed the post he put up on Saturday about the new season. I saw it yesterday after I’d already written yesterday’s column so I’m sure most of you die hard fans have already seen it. For those of you who haven’t; Season 4.2 will begin airing sometime in August, there’s no official date yet. Yes it blows, but that’s what’s happening. There are also “Venture Brothers” action figures set to come out sometime around July, and season 4.1 will get it’s own DVD release sometime in late summer or fall. For more complete information you can go visit Jackson Publick’s LiveJournal. And here’s Wednesday night’s TV:
8:00 p.m.: “America’s Next Top Model” on The CW.
“Human Target” on Fox.
“PBS Special: Tavis Smiley Reports: MLK: A Call to Conscience” on PBS. Look, I love Public Broadcasting as much as the next heathen liberal, but someone needs to go revoke their supply of colons.
8:30 p.m.: “The Middle” on ABC.
9:00 p.m.: “American Idol” on Fox. Someone’s getting voted off. I can hardly take the suspense!
“Fly Girls” on The CW.
“Ghost Hunters” on SyFy.
“Modern Family” on ABC.
“Mythbusters” on Discovery Channel. OK, so this week is the week that Kari comes back. It’s on Twitter from the Mythbusters main account and both Adam and Grant have retweeted it. And is it just me or does Mythbusters not do well with blondes who work with cars? I still miss Scottie.
“PBS Special: American Masters: I.M Pei: Building China Modern” on PBS. Seriously, take them by force if necessary.
9:30 p.m.: “Cougar Town” on ABC.
“High Society” on The CW.
“The Inbetweeners” on BBCA. Second season finale.
10:00 p.m.: “Addicted” on TLC.
“Destination Truth” on SyFy.
“Dog the Bounty Hunter” on A&E.
“In Plain Sight” on USA. Third season premiere.

“Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit” on NBC.
“The Real World” on MTV. 23rd season finale. This means “The Real World” has had as many seasons as I’ve had years in my life. Scary.

“The Ultimate Fighter” on SpikeTV. Eleventh season premiere.
