FX and FXX’s The League has quietly sprinted toward the end zone of its seventh and final season in recent weeks, but may find its victory lap marred by a disturbing truth. Series lead Steve Rannazzisi has publicly admitted to fabricating a long-told story of nearly perishing at the World Trade Center in the 9/11 attack of 2001.
FX spinoff network FXX may still seem like the pasture for less favorable shows, but its September lineup of premieres should put plenty of eyes in focus. Not only will the final season of sports fantasy comedy The League premiere this coming September, but also the second run of critical breakout You’re The Worst.
Earlier in the year, we heard rumors that FX might look to spinoff its comedy properties into a separate network titled "FXX," to debut in September of this year. Now, as news pours out of the cable network's Upfront presentation, we've learned that FXX will indeed break off from FX and debut in 74 million homes this September, but will it be a comedy-central channel, or appeal to a broader demographic?

Who else is on deck for 'The League' season 4?
Dabbling in TV News has its downsides, particularly when one actor known for a specific show gets cast on other, usually foretelling some kind of doom. We're certainly hoping that's not the case with 'Glee's Jayma Mays, whom FX's 'The League' has just cast for a multi-episode arc! Might it mean the worst for troubled lovebirds Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) and Emma Pillsbury? Learn what 'League' role Jayma will play inside!
New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, 'Prometheus' comes home, as well as some snappy, smart TV, and a classic on Blu-ray. ...
While we might know him best as hard-nosed charming Marshal Raylan Givens, of FX's 'Justified,' it's easy to forget that actor Timothy Olyphant has quite the comedic talent as well. Olyphant appeared on 'The Office' several season ago (in an arc that went precisely nowhere), but for his next sitcom gig ,he won't have to travel very far. The 'Justified' star will next popl up in an upcoming episode of 'The League's fourth season, but what is it that rubs him the wrong way with the guys?
For all the new's we've been pumping out of FX lately (with more 'American Horror Story' yet to come!), we could use a laugh. 'Wilfred' and 'Louie' are on their way out, so when are the boys from 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and 'The League' going to return?
