FX's 'Justified' to end after season 6

Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant didn't want to extend Raylan Givens' adventures too much further

It's FX's day at the Television Critics Association press tour, which, as always, brings with it a load of news about new shows (Louis C.K. and Zach Galifianakis are developing a comedy for Galifianakis to star in), new deals (the FX Now streaming app is finally ready to launch, if your cable system cuts a deal with FX), and on returning shows. On the latter case, the biggest news was official confirmation that "Justified" will end after next season, the show's sixth. (The second episode of the fifth season airs tonight at 10; I'll have a review up later, but it's a good one.)

Review: FX's 'Archer' reboots & 'Chozen' is introduced

What did everybody think of the new 'Archer' direction and the new comedy that followed it?

Major change was afoot in FX animation last night, with the return of "Archer" on a new night — the first time (at least post-"Shield") that FX has programmed originals on Monday — in an episode that massively upended the show's status quo, and with the debut of "Chozen," teaming up various creative people from "Archer" and "Eastbound & Down." A few thoughts on both coming up just as soon as I can remember the name of Beaker's partner...

Talkback: 'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Slapsgiving 3'

What did everybody think of the latest slap bet episode?

The final season of "How I Met Your Mother" means we're supposed to get closure on a bunch of long-running stories and gags, but because Marshall got a slap bet extension a season or two ago, "Slapsgiving 3" did not feature the final slap ever. (I remain hopeful the last one will take place far in the future, when both are elderly gentlemen.) 

But as for Official Slap #4, what did everybody think? Did you enjoy the "Kill Bill"/kung fu movie homage, or find it hokey? Did you like the idea of having most of the episode take place in a mid-slap flashback? Enjoy seeing the cast as slap mentors? Did you applaud the very special musical guests from the tag? 

Have at it, folks.

HBO renews 'The Newsroom' for third and final season

Aaron Sorkin will team with 'Office' alum Paul Lieberstein to wrap things up

HBO announced that Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" has finally been renewed for a third season, which will go into production in the spring and air in the fall, and that this will be the show's final season. This qualifies as a good news, bad news kind of day, though different segments of the show's audience — some of whom thrill to the Sorkin-y dialogue and/or to his critique of the dire state of American politics and the media that covers the politicians, some of whom (yours truly included) who feel the show magnifies pretty much all of Sorkin's worst instincts as a dramatist — will disagree on which piece is the good and which is the bad.

'New Girl' to welcome Prince for Super Bowl episode

Special 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' ep will feature Joe Theismann and the return of Fred Armisen

We already knew that FOX would air episodes of "New Girl" & "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" after the Super Bowl this year. Now we have a better idea of what those episodes will look like, with Prince playing himself on "New Girl" while "Brooklyn" will welcome back Fred Armisen and Dean Winters while also guest-starring Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Theismann.(*)
