One TV network in Toobworld that doesn't exist in the real world is Trial TV. We used to have Court TV, but now I think it's called Tru-TV.

Trial TV has been around since the late 1990's and it's still going strong. Recently, the consultant for the CBI by the name of Patrick Jane, who's sometimes called 'The Mentalist', was on a memorable episode of 'You've Been Served' starring Karen Cross, in which he revealed the true murderer of another killer (using candles held by the audience.)
Back in 1999, Trial TV reported on the upcoming trial of a mobster named Michael Sanricci, which was supposed to be presided over by Judge Harold Wabash. As it turns out, they were in cahoots together and thanks to the manipulations by a modern-day Paladin known only as Mr. Chapel, they both ended up dead.

Here are some frame grabs from both reports by Trial TV:

The network serves as a trivial link between 'The Mentalist' and 'Vengeance Unlimited'......
