American High is back on PBS.

American High is back on PBS.
American High returns to prime-time tonight, starting with the first episode. Unlike FOX’s brilliant programming, putting the show opposite Big Brother (which, despite its crappiness, had Survivor‘s lead-in), PBS is running American High at 10 p.m. ET (although you should check your local listings just in case). It’s only real competition comes during the second half hour, when Comedy Central debuts That’s My Bush! Hmm: Watch a funny talking fetus puppet or the second half of a smart reality TV show?
+ chat: creator R.J. Cutler and cast member Anna, 11 p.m. ET tonight.
