    Puppet Up Uncensored was an hour comedy special that aired one time on TBS.

    I went on TBS.com and it said new episodes every Wednesday. I checked for this Weds but it's not on the air. Does anyone when the show premieres on TBS?

    The "show" won't be premiering on TBS. "Puppet Up!" doesn't (and isn't planned to) air on TBS.

    TBS aired a once-and-done Puppet Up! television special in November 2006. It was an hour-long special as part of TBS' coverage of the Comedy Festival in Las Vegas.

    Now (starting in March 2007) TBS is releasing new "episodes" (i.e. sets of individual sketches) online for viewing via their website video service entitled "Laugh Lab". Every Wednesday new "episodes" are posted on TBS.com.

    Although Brian Henson (and others) have said they hope to possibly adapt Puppet Up into a television show, there are currently no formal plans lined up to do so.

    So as of now "Puppet Up! – Uncensored" is a live stage show, a once-and-done television special and a weekly web series on TBS.com. Maybe one day we can add TV show to the list, but as of now it is not airing on TBS (or anywhere) as a TV show.

    I was introduced to Puppet Up! in my puppetry class a couple of quarters ago. However, I think it was in its infancy. I watched the linked clips. Hilarious! The show is a great example that puppets are not just for children.

    When I share my interest of puppetry with others they usually ask if I'd be interested in entertaining for a children's event.
