FX Could Split Into Two Separate Channels

dayman

Odd news out of cable TV powerhouse FX today. According to Broadcasting and Cable, Fox is eyeing a move for the network that would have it split in two.

The new network would be called FXX, and would attempt to appeal to the younger millennial crowd. FX comedies like The League and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia would make the jump to the new channel, while shows like Justified and Sons of Anarchy would stay put.

Turner has already done this years ago, which is why we have TNT for drama and TBS for Comedy. When you think about it, it’s not the craziest idea in the world, and most people would get both channels already. It might take some adjustment, but people would probably get the hang of it at some point.

That said, it doesn’t seem entirely necessary. FX has built up a stable of great shows, and in reality, probably has the most worthwhile line-up on TV throughout the course of the year, other than maybe AMC and HBO. I don’t really see that the channel is cannibalizing itself by offering dramas and comedies on the same network, but I suppose I’m not an executive and don’t know these things.

Would Archer be heading to FXX as well? That’s the real question.
