2017 Emmys Opening - Stephen Colbert

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were broadcast on CBS last night, handing out awards to HBO’s Big Little Lies and Veep, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Netflix’s Black Mirror, NBC’s This Is Us, FX’s Atlanta, and many more (get the full list of winners right here). But if you weren’t able to watch, we have the best moments from the show for your viewing pleasure.

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert served as master of ceremonies, opening the show with a musical number and an extensive monologue that featured one surprising guest that not only shocked people, but also made them feel a little uncomfortable. Plus, we get to see Emmy come to life thanks to Ru Paul, and Stephen Colbert breaks down during his hosting gig and needs a little Westworld check-up.

Check out the 2017 Emmys opening monologue, musical number and more below. Read More »

Archer Dreamland teaser trailers

Though it started out as a spoof of James Bond-style spy stories, Archer‘s reinvented itself a couple of times over the past few years. There was that time it became a Miami Vice riff in season five, before “un-rebooting” itself in season six. It re-rebooted itself in season seven, this time as a Magnum P.I.-inspired private eye series. And it’s getting yet another makeover for season eight, refashioning itself as a 1940s noir mystery called Archer: Dreamland. Get your first look via two new teasers below.

‘Archer’ Moves to FXX for Season 8

Archer FXX

Archer is plotting another big move for season eight, and I don’t mean to another glamorous and exotic city. The animated comedy is heading over to FXX, the sister network to its former home FX. No return date has been announced for the series, but we can probably expect it to stick around its new digs for a while — Archer received a three-season renewal last yearRead More »

FX’s ‘Archer’ Ending After Season 10

Archer end date

Over the summer, FX renewed its spy spoof Archer for not one, not two, but three seasons, bringing the total season count up to ten and keeping the show on air through about 2019. Once that season ends, though, it’ll be lights out for Sterling and Lana and Malory and the rest of the gang. “The plan is to end Archer after season 10,” series creator Adam Reed said in a recent interview.

Archer renewed

If you think about it for even two seconds, it’s incredible that Sterling Archer and his colleagues have survived as long as they have. Never mind the fact that their line of work (espionage, usually, but sometimes private investigation or the illegal drug trade) puts them in danger on a regular basis — these people are often impulsive and foolish and downright incompetent.

But they always live to fight another day, and now we know for sure they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. FX has just renewed Archer for another three seasons, taking the animated spy spoof all the way through season ten.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Archer

The characters of Archer have only changed so much over the years. If they ever truly evolved as people, after all, they’d no longer be the unrepentant assholes we’ve come to love. But the show itself has morphed a couple of times, first into a crime show in season 5 and then into a P.I. series in season 7. Might Archer make an even bigger leap someday? Like into the world of live-action films, perhaps?

Executive producer Matt Thompson isn’t ruling out a possible Archer movie, revealing that he and series creator Adam Reed “have definitely talked about it.” And while they’ve yet to make up their mind about whether this (purely theoretical, at this point) movie would be animated or live-action, they know exactly who they’d want playing Sterling Archer if they go the latter route: Mad Men star Jon HammRead More »
