Good news for fans of fantasy football comedy minus the fantasy football part. Just in time for fantasy football playoffs, FX has renewed The League for a fourth season. The comedy's third season has built on its audience to the tune of 1.7 million viewers, a 25-percent increase from last year. Translation: After starting out and becoming known as "the show that's paired with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," The League has found its stride and is getting more popular. Season 4 will premiere next fall.
The League is billed as a comedy about a group of friends involved in a fantasy football league, but you don't have to know your Peyton Mannings from your Peyton Hillises to enjoy it. It's really just a show about a group of friends who joke about wacking off and penises, and who sometimes do other things, time permitting. Plus it has Nick Kroll and Paul Scheer and a revolving door of great guest stars.
The League is currently airing on Thursdays at 10:30pm on FX.
