FX Networks has renewed its two freshman summer comedies, Married and You’re The Worst, with 13-episode orders, up from 10 episodes for their rookie runs. Married will continue on FX, while You’re The Worst is headed to sibling FXX.
Neither has been a breakout, but both have done OK by cable comedy standards. On a weekly basis, Married has averaged 1.96 million total viewers and 1.35 million adults 18-49, and You’re The Worst is averaging 1.65 million viewers and 1.09 million adults 18-49 (through the first seven episodes). FX notes You’re the Worst‘s strength among adults 18-34.
Nat Faxon and Judy Greer star in Married as spouses who can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia — but every now and then they are reminded what drew them together in the first place: They’re best friends. Brett Gelman and Jenny Slate co-star. You’re The Worst puts a darker spin on rom-coms. Chris Geere and Ava Cash go home together after a wedding and, despite their better judgment, begin to fall for each other. The cast also includes Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue.
“We love these shows and the creative visions of Andrew Gurland of Married and Stephen Falk of You’re The Worst,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Prods. “These shows are honest, 360-degree looks at relationships, and we’re excited to see how they evolve.”Nick Grad, President of Original Programming for FX Networks
You’re The Worst‘s move to FXX offsets that channel’s loss of the Jim Jefferies comedy Legit, which was cancelled in May. The sophomore comedy joins veteran comedies It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and The League, which were moved to FXX along with Legit in March 2013.
