FX renews 'The League' for third season

Continuing this sports-themed day of Inside TV blog programming, FX just announced a third season pickup for its comedy series The League. The second season of the scripted show set against the backdrop of a fantasy football league was on the bubble for the network, averaging 1.4 million total viewers and 1.1 million adults 18-49, but that’s up five percent from season one. Says creators Jackie and Jeff Schaffer: “FX truly is like the parents we wish we had growing up — every time we say something naughty, they reward us.”

    Ok, I’m embarrassed to admit this, but this show cracks me up. It is dumb, potty-mouthed, childish humor, but it cracks me up.

    One of the funniest shows on right now.

    Great news. I’m usually not a fan of crude humor, but this is one of the few shows that actually pulls it off. Def one of the funniest shows currently on the air.

    Cool. I didn’t see any of season 1, but I caught a handful of episodes of season 2 and it always had me laughing. Hopefully they’ll pair it with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia again.

    Yay! This show is freaking hilarious, so glad to hear there’s going to be more.

    When I first heard about this show, I figured you’d need to be a football fan and into fantasy football to find it funny. But I know nothing about fantasy football and I only watch football on occasion, yet I think this show is a riot! I’m so glad I decided to check it out.

    One Of The best shows on TV, Season 1 was great, season 2 got off to a great start and then kind of fizzled at the end, but its way better than most of the trash thats on TV.
