Sure, there were real-life Russian spies who spent decades undercover, ducking America’s defenses and sending intel back to the Motherland, but at what point does The Americans start to feel unrealistic when two Soviet spies are living and operating just across the street from an FBI agent?

Parks and Recreation. Nurse Jackie. Mad Men. Justified. Those are just a few of the television series saying goodbye this year after solid runs. For Justified, the end comes after six seasons of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) bringing justice to his hometown of Harlan, Kentucky. Why is the series going off the air now?
Denis Leary is going to fit in perfectly when it comes to the rock star life.
The Rescue Me alum is returning to FX for his new series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, in which he plays a middle-aged former rock star whose career fizzled in a haze of drugs and alcohol. Now, 25 years after he was on top, he’s trying to make a comeback. During TCA’s winter press tour, Leary dropped no less than 50 f-bombs while promoting his new series. Here are some of the highlights:
Oh, you want new details on Fargo’s second season? You betcha, we got ‘em!
During TCA’s winter press tour, FX CEO John Langraf revealed that Ronald Reagan will figure into the second season of the network’s hit anthology series.
The new chapter travels back to 1979, where a young Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson, played in the first season by Keith Carradine) returns from Vietnam and begins to investigate a local gang and a mob syndicate.

“I’m not a huge fan of change,” quips super-spy Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) at the end of tonight’s premiere. Boy, will he ever be happy with the start of season 6 of his titular show, then. After last year’s dalliance with a whole host of dangerous pursuits—drug-dealing, governmental coups, country-music stardom—the spy comedy has reset to its original format.
Of course, the gang is all here and back in fine form. Pam (Amber Nash) is plump again, Ray (Adam Reed) is walking unassisted, and Carol (Judy Greer) has ditched her Cherlene persona. They’re even working out of a perfect replica of the old ISIS offices, down to Brett’s bloodstains (though, sadly, not made with Brett’s actual blood). READ FULL STORY
The sixth season of FX’s animated series Archer (premiering Jan. 8 at 10 p.m.) finds the show’s bickering spies back in the espionage game, after spending the previous year trying to sell a metric ton of cocaine. But creator-writer Adam Reed had originally planned to send self-obsessed Sterling Archer, new mom Lana, booze-sodden boss Malory, and the rest of the team to the hoosegow to pay for their crimes.
“It was an offhand comment by someone,” says Reed of the idea to put Archer & co. behind bars. “We sat down and talked about it and were laughing about it, and instantly story ideas were spilling out. Then some wet blanket said, ‘Well, you know, it’s going to seem like we’re ripping off Orange Is the New Black.’ It just sucked all the air out of the room.”
Not wanting to let a good idea go to waste, we asked Reed and the animators to give us a taste of how the season would have looked if they’d gone through with their “Archer behind bars” idea. You can see the exclusive, prison-movie-referencing Archer-in-the-bighouse illustration above.
