russell brand fx brand x cancelled

Another one bites the dust.

Russell Brand’s TV talk show, Brand X, has been cancelled by FX, as announced by the network’s CEO John Landgraf Thursday.

Though this must come as a blow for the actor-comedian, it’s not all bad news! FX will be continuing its professional relationship with Russell and has picked up one of his pilots! They're even working on the actor's scripted live-action comedy already!

Looking forward to seeing what Russell has in store for us next!

FX Announces They Will Be Launching A New Network This Fall!

fx announces launch of new network fxx in the fall

FX is looking to make some big moves this fall as they recently announced they will be launching a new network later this year!

Network President John Landgraf confirmed their plans to launch of of their new channel, FXX on September 2nd. That's right. It's like FX, just with another X. How original!

FXX will aim for a target audience of 18-34 year olds, a demographic that shouldn't be to hard to reach considering the network will be inheriting HIGHlarious veteran shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League when their new seasons start!

The new channel will also feature reruns of classics like Rescue Me and Arrested Development, which is definitely a good thing because who doesn't love the Bluths??

While FX is certainly lending a helping hand to their new baby bro, they aren't giving up hits like Louie, Archer, or Wilfred, meaning they will probably have to launch a few pilots for original programming. But considering the network's recent track record with comedies, that probably won't be too difficult!

We're always down for a good laugh, so we're definitely looking forward to FXX! Hopefully it can keep up with the rest in this golden age for cable television!

american horror story has best premiere ever for fx

FX president John Landgraf totally called this!

After the initial ratings came in for American Horror Story's series premiere, the FX prez had the following to say about it:

"We’re really thrilled by the premiere ratings performance of American Horror Story. We know that when the Live+7 ratings come in, that of the 13 drama series FX has premiered, AHS will rank at least No. 2 all-time in Adults 18-4 and there is a possibility that it could be our highest ever."

He was right! The Live+7 ratings are in and thanks to people watching the AHS premiere on DVR, the show landed a total of 3.14 million viewers, making it the highest rated series premiere for FX ever!

Very exciting! Between this and the renewal of The Walking Dead, it's become quite clear that Americans are LOVING the horror genre more than ever!
