The Hunt Is On: The cross country horror continues, as season two ‘Ghost Hunters International’ premieres June 18 at 9pm ET/PT on SCI FI. The first episode will take the adventurers into Wicklow, Ireland to investigate an 18th century prison – where they’ll come face to face with an actual ghost. The team will then embark on trips to Chile, Ireland, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and Argentina. Check out clips and previews on Fancast.

Tracey’s State Of Funny: The very funny Tracy Ullman’s headed back to TV now that a third season of ‘Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union’ has been picked up by Showtime. And no one is safe from her celebrity roasting. Last season she parodied celebrities like Cameron Diaz, RenĂ©e Zellweger, Dina Lohan, Tony Sirico and David Beckham and media personalities like Nancy Pelosi and Arianna Huffington – and also made savvy political observations by portraying regular struggling folks – an Indian pharmacist to a homeless woman without health insurance to a soldier on temporary leave from Iraq. The season will air sometime in 2010.

Hammer Time!: The Hammer Pants dancers are back! This time with a sequel to their first hit over at the GAP, where they’ve moved to Santa Monica Blvd – clear in the middle of the street – to surprise hipsters waiting in line to watch a band. Check out the clip and watch Hammertime Sunday nights on A&E.

Green Summer: Planet Green has something special planned for this summer. The month-long ‘Blue August’ will feature series that deal with clean drinking water – like the ‘Blue Planet series,’ and all new episodes of ‘Focus Earth with Bob Woodruff.’ The network will also premiere Sigourney Weaver’s ‘Acid Test: The Challenge of Ocean Acidification.’
