FX

It's FX's day at press tour, and before John Landgraf addresses the press to talk about his own slate of shows – as well as the exciting/terrifying explosion in scripted programming on TV – the network made a bunch of announcements about its upcoming slate. In no particular order:

* “Fargo” season 2 (the first episode of which was a huge relief for me after watching most of “True Detective” season 2) will debut on October 12.

* Kurt Sutter's new series, “The Bastard Executioner,” will debut September 15, while the new season of “American Horror Story” will debut October 7.

* “Better Things,” a comedy starring Pamela Adlon and co-created by Adlon and Louis C.K., has been ordered to series for FX. FXX, meanwhile, ordered to series “Cassius and Clay,” a new animated comedy starring Lake Bell and Kaitlin Olson.

* Though FX isn't going comedy-free, “Archer” will be moving to FXX in an attempt to boost the newer comedies and help clarify the difference between the sibling channels. (FXX, for now at least, is all-comedy, and the few remaining FX comedies are older-skewing.)

* “The Strain” has been renewed for a third season.
