There's going to be a lot more Archer on TV in 2015. Comedy Central has obtained off-network syndication rights to the FX series and will start airing reruns of it in May 2015, Deadline reports.

Archer reruns will also be airing on FX's sister channel FXX, who has exclusive rights to reairing the show after midnight while Comedy Central has rights to airing it before midnight.

The once respected super-spies have been operating without the consent of the government (and betrayed the government, but hey, as Sterling Archer says, "Potato, patreason") and are turning to drug dealing [...]
Here's the latest ISIS training video from Archer, which serves as a reminder that ninjas are super dangerous and also as a reminder that Archer comes back for Season 5 on January 13th.
Bob Belcher and his restaurant may be cursed with an unlucky streak, but even before the fourth season premieres this Sunday, Fox has already renewd Bob's Burgers for a fifth. While portraying a dysfunctional, blue-collar family struggling to stay afloat, the show has successfully challenged Seth MacFarlane's hegemony in the world of animated primetime comedy while attracting a growing fanbase.
