FX Announces January Premieres for ‘Archer,’ ‘Totally Biased,’ and Jim Jefferies’s New Show
FX just announced that it’s premiering a Thursday night comedy block on January 17th, 2013. Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management (which was recently picked up for 90 episodes as part of mindless march towards syndication) will kick things off with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 before settling into the 9:30 timeslot for good. The fourth season of Archer will air at 10, followed by Legit, a new series starring Australian comedian Jim Jefferies at 9:30. The supporting cast for Legit features Dan Bakkedahl (The Daily Show), D.J. Qualls (Road Trip), and Gillian Vigman (MADtv), and the show follows Jefferies in his quest to “become legitimate in life.” So, basically, an Australian Louie. Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will air its second season at 11, with Brand X with Russell Brand returning on February 7th. With shows starring an Australian guy, a British guy, an African-American guy, a crazy guy, and a cartoon spy, this is the most diverse block of programming of shows that only feature male stars ever.
