Russell Brand And W. Kamau Bell's Late Night Shows Nab Additional Episodes
Over the summer, FX decided to take a run at late night programming. The network hired actor Russell Brand to host BrandX and stand-up comedian W. Kamau Bell to host Totally Biased. The network started tentatively with both series, signing on for six episodes each. Both shows were later given a few more episodes, and now each has signed on for the biggest contract yet.
Both shows are nearing their episode run, and FX announced today that BrandX with Russell Brand and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell have both been given additional 13 episode orders. Both shows will begin airing again after the holidays, although one of the programs will undergo a few changes before it returns. BrandX has been given a big push, as it will go from a half-hour series to a full-hour series at the start of the next cycle. Deadline is reporting the final episode of this cycle of BrandX will air this Thursday, and will be given the full-hour treatment to let fans know what to expect.
Totally Biased will be the first late night program to return to the schedule, reappearing on January 17. BrandX will follow on February 7. Both shows look like they are around to stay, at least for a little while. If you havenít caught them in the past, you can get a taste this Thursday. Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will air its final episode of the cycle on Thursday, November 29 at 11 p.m. and BrandX with Russell Brand will follow at 11:30 p.m. ET on FX.
