FX x FX = Twice as good? Or half?

Reports say cable channel will split its comedy and drama series across two different channels

When it comes to original programming, FX is one of the most consistent, entertaining channels in all of television. But will two FX channels be better than one?

According to several published reports (like this one in Broadcasting & Cable), Fox Networks is on the verge of changing its Fox Soccer channel into an FX spin-off network, tentatively titled FXX, with a focus on both comedy and a slightly younger audience to differentiate itself from FX.

Review: Jim Jefferies tries to go 'Legit' in warm new FX comedy

Australian comic helps out a disabled friend

"Change is good, you know?" comedian Jim Jefferies announces early in his new FX series "Legit," which debuts tomorrow night at 10:30. "Can't keep going on like this. I think I'd like to have kids."

Jim sounds sincere as he explains this to his friend Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), but quickly adds that he doesn't want to get married — that, in an ideal world, he would meet a woman, get her pregnant, and she would stick around long enough to get the baby through the sleepless nights/dirty diaper phase before conveniently dying.

"That would really be best for everyone," he explains to a horrified Steve, who tries to work around his friend's narcissism by suggesting, "My therapist says if you want to get out of your head, you do something nice for someone else."

"Legit" is the story of a selfish pig who decides to do something nice for someone else, but it's not a fairy tale. Jim does the right things, but inevitably for the wrong reasons, and always with a twisted logic that makes it hard to see any of his actions as entirely generous.

AMC resurrects 'The Killing' for season 3

Murder mystery series will return with stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman and producer Veena Sud

Because someone, somewhere, demanded it, "The Killing" lives.

Back in July, AMC declined to order a third season of the mystery series, and though Fox Television Studios insisted they would seek another buyer for the series, instead it's returned to its original home, with original showrunner Veena Sud still in charge, and stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman reprising their roles as Seattle cops Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder. Production will begin in Vancouver in late February.
