The sub-industry of TV pilots is completely different from what it used to be, with networks switching to yearlong schedules, and Amazon allowing viewers a chance to give feedback. But this is still one of the strangest pilot stories we’ve ever heard, and it involves Robert Jordan's classic fantasy novel series Wheel of Time.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one of the great comedy shows of the 21st century. And thanks to this ambitious video, we can all now watch the Paddy's Pub gang celebrate the use of the phrase “goddamnit,” something they say far more than many of us have ever imagined.
Of all of the new series premiering this spring, Man Seeking Woman was high on my most anticipated list and it ended up being love at first sight. Based on Simon Rich's collection of shorts called "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," the FXX comedy starring Jay Baruchel is a much needed fresh take on the stale sitcom format.
Today, FXX simultaneously gave us some good news and bad news when the network made an announcement about The League. On the bright side, The League will be returning for a seventh season next year. However, unfortunately Season 7 will also be the final season for the show.
Did you think that your days of enjoying The Simpsons in marathon form were over? Guess again. In an effort to make audiences even more aware of the series’ 25th Anniversary spectacular The Simpsons Take the Bowl, FXX will be airing a mini-marathon featuring episodes whose musical numbers will be showcased at the live event.
With the six season premiere headed onto the FXX schedule tonight, we sat down and thought about all of the fantasy football lessons The League has taught us.We feel we’ve come up with a pretty good list, but if there’s anything additional you’ve learned from The League, feel free to let us know.
FXX's planned Simpsons marathon event has officially begun. The 12-day marathon kicked (or kicks, if you're on PST) off at 10:00 a.m. today and will run for 24 hours a day for nearly two weeks. Those tuning in this morning will be treated to the early years of the long-running Fox animated comedy, complete with all of the ay carambas, don't have a cows and eat my shorts'es that fans can handle.
For diehard Simpsons fans, the next 12 days are going to be some of the best that time on Earth has to offer, as FXX begins its massive marathon,To help you figure out the best times of the day to escape your own city and head to Springfield – or at least when to set your DVRs – we’re picking five can’t-miss episodes from each day of the marathon.
FXX is celebrating the iconic series by hosting a Simpsons marathon that will feature every single episode from all 25 seasons. This will hereby be known as the “Greatest Marathon the World has Ever Known.” (Or at least half of it will be known as that.)
Television viewers will soon be able to get their weekly Baruchel quota now that FXX has put in a 10-episode series order for the half-hour comedy series Man Seeking Woman. Expect more chuckle aches than heartbreaks with this one.
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.
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.
It has been a huge week for TV, with the upfronts laying out everything that the basic cable networks will be offering viewers for the next year or so. Not to be outdone, the quality control specialists at FX and FXX have released their summer schedule, covering both returning shows and those new to the airwaves.
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.
We recently caught up with the hilarious Australian to talk about the quickly approaching second season of Legit, which begins Wednesday, February 26. Aside from learning that his birthday is on Valentine’s Day and that he has no interest in watching the hours of footage for his Funny or Die Valentine’s video...
