FX Sets Return Dates for Justified, Archer, and More

There's a lot of good (and not as good) television going dark early next year, as Homeland, Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, and Revolution are all wrapping up their seasons for the year or taking the winter off in favor of a spring return. But that doesn't mean TV is going to suck in January. And one stud in a 10-gallon hat is going to make sure of that.

FX has announced its winter 2013 premiere dates, highlighted by the return of Justified on January 8. The fourth season of the Southern tale of crazed butchers, backwoods rednecks, and one handsome man who is quick on the draw will see Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) tangling with a cold case and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) going toe-to-toe with a wily Pentecostal preacher.

Anger Management, Charlie Sheen's multi-cam sitcom, returns January 17 with back-to-back new episodes starting at 9pm, and will be followed by the Season 4 premiere of Archer at 10pm. Sharing the 10pm hour with Archer is the new comedy Legit, which stars Jim Jeffries as an Australian comic who's looking to live a more legitimate life. I'm trying to find more information on this show, but I haven't yet, so that's all you get for now. Finally, a new round of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will also begin January 17 in the 11pm hole.

Adding Justified and Archer to the TV schedule sure takes the pain away from what looks like an otherwise cold, cold winter.

Archer is the one I'm most excited about returning, followed closely by Justified which only lost that top slot after an uneven 3rd season. Archer however not only held up great last season, it actually improved. Plus, it's BEEN LONG ENOUGH GODDAMNIT! How the hell does FX get away with airing a show for 2 months a year?!?

I'm always saddened by the winter hiatus, and I don't really understand it. Why wouldn't people want shows during the coldest time of the year? They would be indoors more often after all. I get the Holiday hiatus, everybody's busy around that time of year, but not all Winter.

I know, it sucks. I'm already stockpiling episodes for the winter break. I got some Dexter, a bit of Castle, The Good Wife and since Price has talked so much about My So Called Life, I've downloaded that too. So it's not gonna be such a cold winter :)

Finally! Now if only they'd release a trailer for Justified Season 4 I'd be happy :)

It's not gonna be the same without Quarles, but Justified won't disappoint.

And Archer, you still got it...bow chicka bow bow! Uh huh huh!

"Justified" and "Archer" will keep us warm... until March, when winter is coming.

I wonder can the greatness of Justified will clear my mind of the awfulness that was Revolution?

They just started shooting earlier this month I think, so maybe summer? Or Spring?

Plus, yes. It vibrates.

Justified and Archer: FX makes me so happy. Almost Krieger happy.

"If I find one dog hair when I get back, I'm going to rub sand in your dead little eyes."


That said, I'm actually more excited for Justified. I love Archer though too. And actually really can't wait for the Americans, the premise sounds cool, and I've really enjoyed the spots we've seen so far, very clever.

Archer: "And why couldn't it be the Brazilian mob? Estou aprendendo portugues. Plus I can only assume a Brazilian mob would be a jillion times sexier. Seriously, these potato-heads have to be the unsexiest mob of all time."

"I'm not saying I invented the turtleneck. But I was the first person to realize its potential as a tactical garment. The tactical turtleneck! The... tactleneck!"

The hilarious quotes are endless!

All of the characters have ***-loads of awesome quotes.

Though I have to say Krieger has some of the best "random" quotes. Often when jabbering as part of a group but even his solo scenes.

Krieger kills me! Probably my second favourite character behind Archer. In my opinion, we don't see him enough, or his virtual girlfriend.

Pam: "Come on Ms. Archer, you've been in there ten hours. Meet us half way and Kreiger will let you out of there, or else he'll crank up the heat again."
Cheryl: "I love that you know how to do that."
Dr. Krieger: "And I love that I have an erection, that didn't involve homeless people."

No date yet for The Americans, but it is slated for January. Frustrating.

It's looking like Tuesday is going to be an awesome night of TV. Justified and Archer, back to back. Two of my most favorite (contemporary) shows.

Justified is an awesome show! Can't wait to watch the new season. I love the ambience, the locations, anything about Justified. I'd like to go to those places. Greetings from Italy.
