FX and FXX Cancel 'Legit' and 'Chozen'

Sister networks FX and FXX just canceled two of their comedies. THR reports that FX has canceled Legit and that FXX has canceled Chozen. Both series have been suffering from low ratings.

Legit, co-created by and starring Australian comedian Jim Jeffries as a fictionalized version of himself, concludes its second season tonight on FX.
