For its first four seasons, THE LEAGUE, the half-hour comedy created by Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, was a staple for FX Network. Now FX is moving THE LEAGUE to its new outlet FXX for the show’s fifth season, which debuted Wednesday September 4 at 10:30 PM, following fellow FX transfer IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, which is now on FXX Wednesdays at 10 PM.

Voices: Danny DeVito, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, Zac Efron, Betty White, Rob Riggle, Jenny Slate Writer: Screenplay by Ken Daurio & Cinco Paul, Based on the book by Dr. Seuss Director: Chris Renaud & Kyle Balda  Suggested Retail Price: $34.98 Translating Dr. Seuss’ wicked children’s books into live action or animation for that matter has not been an easy task. Perhaps the only time it’s been done correctly is the 1966 animated Christmas special of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS!

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Mary Steenburgen, Steven Weber, John Michael Higgins, Rob Riggle Writers: Reed Agnew & Eli Jorne, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays at 10 PM Original Telecast: August 16, 2012 Most WILFRED episodes are respectably, often outstandingly weird even, at those times they fail to be funny. “Service” is rarely funny, which is all right – but it’s not intriguingly peculiar, either, or even touching, apart from one moment at the end that requires knowledge of a Season One […]Read On »

It will be interesting to hear whether the WILFRED creative team has decided on this as a way to go with the series or […]Read On »
