Ah, geez: It's a new 'Fargo' season 2 trailer

FX just released the full-length trailer for "Fargo" season 2, a prequel to the first season starring Patrick Wilson as young Lou Solverson, investigating crime in late '70s Minnesota. This one puts the whole cast — including Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Jeffrey Donovan, and many more — on display, and uses Dr. John's "Right Place Wrong Time" to help set the period mood.

It's time to meet 'The Muppets' new mockumentary style for ABC sitcom

Most prospective TV shows need a full-length pilot episode to be considered for air. With Bill Prady and Bob Kushell's new take on "The Muppets," all ABC needed to see was this 10-minute proof-of-concept video, directed by Randall Einhorn, that takes Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and friends out of their usual variety show format (though they still work out of the Muppet Theater) and instead puts them in the context of the faux documentary format popularized by "The Office," "Modern Family," "Parks and Rec," et al.

'Trainwreck' director Judd Apatow channels Bill Cosby on 'The Tonight Show'

"Trainwreck" director Judd Apatow has been a relentless critic of Bill Cosby's since the rape allegations resurfaced in the media. During a promotional appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," Apatow got to simultaneously return to his stand-up comedy roots while skewering The Cos with a cruel and reasonably accurate impression (and one that also calls back to the punchline from Eddie Murphy's Cosby routine from "Eddie Murphy Raw"). It comes at about the 2:35 minute mark of this clip, after he first jokes about his own modest level of fame and what it's like to live in a house with three women:

Ask Alan, Episode 12: 'X-Files' fears, and which characters went from worst to best?

Ask Alan, Episode 12: 'X-Files' fears, and which characters went from worst to best?

And what genres are due for a revival?

Due to a few technical issues, we're a day late with the latest installment of Ask Alan, where I take your questions about this thing we call TV.

In today's video, I talk about my hopes and fears for "The X-Files" miniseries, identify characters (like Britta on "Community") who went from the worst part of a show to the best, and pick a few mostly-dormant TV genres I'd like to see revived.

As always, you can send questions — the more concisely-worded, the better — to askalan@hitfix.com.
