Wilfred Season 4 Review: Mythologizing Is Serious Not Funny Business image
It almost didn't happen. When we last saw Wilfred, the comedy still hadn't been renewed for its fourth season, which makes the ending of last year's finale seem even more audacious. Obviously, FX ended up coming through with the renewal, especially good news since Season 4 is just as unique, compelling and stunningly shot as the previous three although not quite as funny. Trying to provide answers when crafting a characters' mythology can be serious and often dark business.

Tracy Morgan's FXX Comedy Will Be Waiting For Him When He's Ready image
As comedian Tracy Morgan lies in the hospital recovering following his limo bus accident over the weekend, he definitely has a lot on his plate to worry about. The most important thing is getting better, obviously, but when he pulls through, his previously announced FXX series will “waiting for him,” the network said in a statement.

Legit Season 2 Review: The Maturing Comedy Starts With A Bang And A Racist Whimper image
Simply by being an FX sitcom, Jim Jefferies’ rollickingly raunchy series Legit came out of the gate last year in the same conversation as Louie and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and though it never feels like a replica of either show, the “strong-willed ne’er do well does no one well” tone matches up. Its debut season was crassly hysterical in all the right ways, though some episodes approached material a little too broadly.

The Simpsons Is Finally Headed To Cable In Huge FXX Deal image
The Simpsons has aired on Fox for a lengthy 24 seasons, but in all that time, the network has never once struck a deal to air the famous animated comedy series in syndication on cable. All of that has now changed, thanks to a deal Fox has struck with FXX. The fledgling cable network has earned the rights to air all 530 episodes of the The Simpsons, beginning next year on cable and via Video On Demand, securing non-linear rights to the series.

Ali G: Rezurection To Hit FXX In 2014 image
Sacha Baron Cohen is by now famous for theatrical films like Borat and Bruno, making it easy to forget the character that made him famous, Ali G., a hip-hop loving, foolish personality that aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. and later on HBO in the U.S. Now, FX’s new sister channel FXX is sort-of rebooting Da Ali G Show.

The League Preview: Season 5, Episode 4 - Rafi And Dirty Randy  image
Who would have thought that moving nights and networks would have a negative effect on the ratings? It stands to reason that the two-way trade, moving The League from FX to FXX and from Thursdays to Wednesdays, is mostly responsible for the fantasy football comedy's drop in numbers, especially since it started the fifth season off strong. And a visit from "Rafi and Dirty Randy" should help.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 9 Review: New Channel, Same Brilliance image
The main characters on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia are amateur critics. They interact with and enthusiastically judge every single object, human being, beer, restaurant or philosophical idea they come across. During the early seasons, watching that aggressive scheming and unrelentingly selfish behavior was a bit jarring for many viewers. Now, it’s almost comforting in a way.

The League Review: Season 5 Offers Hilarity And A Destination Wedding image
The League is moving to a new network this month, but the guys and gal in the series are up to the same sort of hijinks, which include plenty of off-color jokes, a destination draft, and guest appearances from some of football’s best and brightest. At it’s heart, The League is still about coming together to mercilessly tease and trample upon anyone who might stand in the way of the ultimate goal of winning the Shiva trophy and being declared league winner. If that’s not the perfect excuse for a comedy, I’m not sure what is.

The League Season 5 Spot Teases NFL Stars And Seth Rogen image
Since the show not only resumes in about a week but is also moving nights and networks, it’s probably past time to talk about the upcoming fifth season of The League. The fantasy football comedy that was formerly a staple of FX’s Thursday line-up will instead be airing Wednesday nights on FXX, co-anchoring the new network with It’s Always Sunny. And most of the pre-season promos have been focusing on the move, using the series’ never-ending list of NFL guest stars spread the word.

Comic-Con 2013: Archer Panel Recap image
Just like last year, the Archer panel began with a special clip made specifically for the Con and it was hilarious. Pam's helping Sterling shoot a video for the attendees (all unattractive asthmatics according to him) which details his new plan on how to get laid in a room full of geek girls. Instead of intimidating the ladies with his Sterling Archerness, he's going as Tony Stark (mostly) nude! Guess where the core is located?
