Archer and Justified and then some other shows get premiere dates
FX has released its annual schedule of reasons not to smash your television into kindling, but rather to watch basic cable while using your furniture and pets for that. January 8 will see the return of Justified, with Timothy Olyphant's Raylan Givens diving deep into yet another Kentucky-fried crime bucket that leads him to meet "the hill people" (though not these hill people), while Walton Goggins' Boyd Crowder tangles with a fiery Pentecostal preacher who's probably also doing something he shouldn't be, as is everyone in Harlan. Then January 17 sees the debut of FX's Thursday night comedy block, kicking off with the contractually mandated back-90 episodes of Charlie Sheen's Anger Management that you'll catch the last couple of minutes of and subsequently sneer at when you DVR Archer, which returns in the 10 p.m. ET slot immediately after.
Following that is the premiere of FX's new series Legit, an autobiographical, slightly more sitcom-y sounding play on Louie that stars Australian comic Jim Jefferies as… Australian comic Jim Jefferies. The night concludes with the recently renewed Totally Biased With Kamau Bell and then, before you know it, spring will be here and you can go chase butterflies again. Enjoy your few months of mercy, butterflies!
