LOS ANGELES, September 30, 2014 – FX Networks is staying in relationships with its new comedies, Married and You’re the Worst, with the second season of Married continuing on FX and You’re The Worst moving to its new home on FXX, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions.
FX Networks ordered 13 episodes of both Married and You’re the Worst for their second seasons. Both series recently completed their 10-episode first seasons on FX. The first seasons of both are currently available on FX’s VOD platform FXNOW for authenticated subscribers of the network. Married and You’re the Worst are produced by FX Productions.
“We love these shows and the creative visions of Andrew Gurland of Married and Stephen Falk of You’re the Worst,” said Grad. “Both series have terrific ensemble casts and outstanding lead performances – Nat Faxon and Judy Greer in Married, and Chris Geere and Aya Cash in You’re the Worst. These shows are honest, 360-degree looks at relationships and we’re excited to see how they evolve.”
On a weekly basis, Married is averaging 1.96 million in Total Viewers and 1.35 million in Adults 18-49, and You’re the Worst is averaging 1.65 million in Total Viewers and 1.09 million in Adults 18-49 (through the first seven episodes and will increase with the accumulation of more data). You’re the Worst showed particular strength among Adults 18-34, increasing delivery in that demo for episodes six, seven and eight (ratings data through episode eight). Both series rank in the Top 10 in Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 for new comedy series in 2014 on basic cable.
Married is a half hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ and Lina Bowman can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance – but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place – they’re best friends. The show also features Russ and Lina’s friend AJ, who is recently divorced and pretending he’s over his wife, and their other friend Jess, who is married to a much older man who can’t keep up with her. Married stars Nat Faxon as “Russ,” Judy Greer as “Lina,” Brett Gelman as “AJ” and Jenny Slate as “Jess.” Paul Reiser guest stars as “Shepard,” Jess’ husband. The series was created by Andrew Gurland (The Virginity Hit, Mail Order Wife), who wrote and directed the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner, alongside Executive Producers Peter Principato and Paul Young.
An original comedy from writer and executive producer Stephen Falk, You’re The Worst is a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people who haven’t been very successful with either. It’s the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners.
