'You're the Worst' creator explains the dark, brilliant turn of season 2

What does Stephen Falk say to fans who just want their funny show back?

"You're the Worst" just concluded a terrific season, which went darker than I think anyone would have expected even last year, as the show dealt bluntly with Gretchen's battles with clinical depression.

My review of the finale is here, and I have a lot of thoughts on the season as a whole from creator Stephen Falk coming up just as soon as I wear my booby shirt...

'Fargo' & 'Better Call Saul' win HitFix's 4th Annual Television Critics Poll

Other big winners: 'The Americans,' 'Master of None,' 'Mad Men' & 'Mr. Robot'

"Fargo" has repeated to win HitFix's fourth annual Television Critics' Poll;, though it was unable by rule to sweep both categories the way it did a year ago.

"Fargo" was an easy winner in both last year's overall poll and new series poll, and it finished more than 100 points ahead of this year's second-place finisher (and FX channel-mate) "The Americans."

TV Top 10 of 2015: 'The Leftovers,' 'Fargo,' 'Mad Men' & more

These shows were the absolute peak of Peak TV in America

From almost every angle, the idea that there will be over 400 original scripted comedies and dramas — many of them, particularly on the drama side, ranging from very good to great — airing in primetime this year, across the broadcast networks, cable, and streaming, is a high-class problem. The only people it really negatively affects are TV critics like yours truly, and even I'd rather people have far too many different viewing options than far too few.

Still, it's hard not to gnash my teeth a bit when December arrives, and top 10 season right along with it.
