FX has decided to hand out a second season order to its new comedy series Man Seeking Woman. The show stars Jay Baruchel, Britt Lower, Maya Erskine and Eric André and is currently amidst its first season now.
Man Seeking Woman hasn’t thus far had strong ratings, but FX has been known to show extreme patience with its original content in the past and is once again demonstrating its support by giving the freshman series the go ahead for Season 2. The show initially opened to 326,000 total viewers but according to Deadline that dropped to 185,000 in Week 2. Now after episode 5, the first season currently averages 254,000 adults 18-34 and 353,000 adults 18-49.
The lesson… sometimes it just takes a little time to find your audience. With It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (now in its 10th Season) to serve as a model, the network clearly understands how to cultivate a viewership. The »

Fxx has greenlit a second season for its high-concept comedy series "Man Seeking Woman." The sitcom follows Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel), a dorky 20-something embarking on a fantastical quest to find true love. His encounters range from basic one-night stands to blind dates with a (literal) troll. "Man Seeking Woman" has fared well on the young Fxx, which was established as an offshoot to FX in order to target younger viewers: Average viewership among 18-49 year-olds is 67 percent higher than Fxx's primetime average, and the median age of its viewers is 32. The comedy also earned strong reviews from critics out of its January premiere. "Working on 'Man Seeking Woman' has been the creative highlight of my life," showrunner Simon Rich said in a release. "Fxx gave us the freedom to make the show we love and they let us build some truly disgusting monsters. I'm so grateful to »

Good news for Gorbachaka fans! Fxx announced on Tuesday (March 3) that "Man Seeking Woman" has been renewed for a 10-episode second season. The first new series to originally premiere on Fxx is also the first new series to originally premiere on Fxx and earn a renewal, even with ratings that, on the surface, don't necessarily appear that impressive. To date, through its first five episodes, "Man Seeking Woman" is averaging 353,000 viewers among adults 18-49 and 254,000 viewers among adults 18-49 in Live+7 figures. Again, that doesn't sound huge, but FX notes that the 18-49 audience is 41 percent better than Fxx's primetime average in that demo, while the 18-34 number is 67 percent better than Fxx's primetime average. Created by Simon Rich and based on his short story collection "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," "Man Seeking Woman" stars Jay Baruchel as a newly single young man facing a quest for romance under the most heightened of circumstances. »

Toronto, Ontario. It's mid-November on the Toronto set of Fxx's "Man Seeking Woman" and a strange "Cutting Edge" reenactment (kinda) is taking place. Series star Jay Baruchel, writer of one of the finest hockey movies ever made, is flopping around the ice at the Weston Lions Arena making a fool of himself. In this episode's piece of heightened reality, Baruchel's Josh has been invited to accompany sister Liz and her boyfriend on a dancing evening, only to discover that the dancing is ice dancing and it's competitive ice dancing. As Liz and Leo shine on the rink, executing flips and synchronized moves, Josh flops and flounders to Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams Come True," slamming into the boards and crawling desperately across the ice. [No, Baruchel doesn't play the hockey player in "Goon." And yes, this ice dancing isn't likely to play an ongoing part of the "Man Seeking Woman" continuity. So yes, it's only barely like the hockey-to-figure skating transformation in "Cutting Edge." But I'm sticking to the comparison.] At the end of each take, »

Wednesday February 18) night's episode of "Man Seeking Woman," titled "Gavel," was actually one of the initial three episodes sent to critics this winter. As always with "Man Seeking Woman" episodes, it's hard to say what the episode is about without giving away the week's metaphorical approaches to Josh Greenberg's (Jay Baruchel) singledom and dating travails. However, as always with "Man Seeking Woman," merely giving away the broad strokes of the episode's hyper-stylized angle on relationships doesn't really spoil how committed the show is to the individual gags. After all, I could have told you last week's "Msw" finally featured that Japanese Penis Monster that creator Simon Rich has been telling reporters about since the fall, but just saying "Japanese Penis Monster" only gave you the tip of the... iceberg when it came to Tanaka. But this week's episode also includes aliens. Very different aliens. It features a callback to »

Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel and Bill Murray star in this story of a military contractor who screws up a major deal and is forced to return to his old life in Hawaii to help with a U.S. Space mission.

There, he tries to reconnect with an old flame (McAdams) while at the same time begins to fall for a young, overly enthusiastic Air Force pilot (Stone) assigned to keep an eye on him.
The plot seems to just be a backdrop to showcase some really lovely performances by a painfully adorable Stone, a ridiculously gorgeous McAdams, a silently stoic Krasinski and Baldwin, who's basically just channeling his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy »
Originally called "Deep Tiki," the film was ready to go a few years ago with a much different cast (led by Ben Stiller), before being reassembled with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone in the primary roles. The film concerns a disgraced defense contractor who is sent to Hawaii to supervise a satellite array and, while there, true to form, falls in love. The ridiculously starry cast also includes Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel. There will also, presumably, be well-known pop songs expertly placed for maximum emotional devastation.
What's interesting about the film, which at one point also went by the name "Volcano Romance," is that there was, at least initially, an element of magic and mysticism »

"I've been really chuffed that it's nominated for an Oscar," says actor Kit Harington, discussing his role in "How to Train Your Dragon 2," which contends for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars (listen to our podcast below). "Sometimes it's easy to feel a slight sense of actor-guilt about animated movies. You feel that you're an actor in an Oscar-nominated movie and you've done very minimal work, but I can now forevermore -- no matter what happens in my bloody career -- I can say to my kids, 'I was once in an Oscar-nominated movie.'" -Break- Enter the 'Dragon 2': How did it become the Oscar frontrunner? Harington voices dragon-trapper Eret, who begins the film at odds with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his Viking cohorts, who have made peace with dragons. Harington started his work on the film in 2013, and "for me it was over in the course of a year and a half, »

Attending the Ves Awards earlier this week, the film's director Dean DeBlois talked to Collider about the third and likely final film in the series which is in the works and is currently targeting a June 2018 release.
DeBlois confirms that the third film will end where the books begin, with Hiccup potentially parting ways with his beloved dragon Toothless and he himself growing up into a man:
"[Dragon 3 is] the culmination of Hiccup's coming of age. Both he and Toothless are now chiefs of their respective tribes, and it's a dueling story where you have both characters trying to do what's right for their kind, and an eventual outcome where Hiccup is able to stand on his own. We're »

How to Train Your Dragon 2 was one of the biggest animated hits of last year, taking in $177 million domestically and over $618 million worldwide. That sequel will lead into How to Train Your Dragon 3, which Paramount has set for release in the summer of 2018. The How to Train Your Dragon franchise is based on the children's book series by Cressida Cowell, although the movies took a much different approach, following the adolescent years of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, instead of his journey as an adult in the books. During the Ves Awards earlier this week, How to Train Your Dragon 2 director Dean DeBlois teased that How to Train Your Dragon 3 will end where the books begin, and that the sequel shows Hiccup's coming of age.
"[Dragon 3 is] the culmination of Hiccup's coming of age. Both he and Toothless are now chiefs of their respective tribes, and it's a dueling story where »
