Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was – yep, it’s time to call it - the funniest film of 2016. For those who blinked a little too long and didn’t catch it on its brief appearance in UK cinemas, the DVD release is your chance to find out what you’ve missed: a hilarious parody of current pop music’s excesses that blends acerbic criticism of predatory gossip shows and social media mobs with a sweet story of three feuding rappers struggling to mend their friendship. The fact that this touching tale also features Seal fending off a pack of wolves, Justin Timberlake dressed as a fish, and a bagpiper playing a lament at a beloved pet turtle’s Viking-inspired funeral comes as no surprise »
FX’s Archer has been known to reinvent itself before, especially during its later seasons. The last outing found the gang moving to Los Angeles to start their own private detective agency, and season eight finds them in a new place entirely, “Dreamland.” But that’s not the only change set to come to the show.
As seen in the trailers above and below, Archer is not only going to enter a new era — as he and the gang now find themselves in a 1920-era detective noir, with the titular character as a private investigator who searches for the man who killed Woodhouse, his partner — but a new station, as well. That’s right, season 8 will find Archer moving to FX’s sister station, Fxx, which is home to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, You’re the Worst, Man Seeking Woman and countless Simpsons re-runs.

Archer is still going strong and despite the fact that some audiences and critics weren’t huge fans of certain spins over the last few years, it’s easily one of the best animated shows (and shows) currently airing.
It recently received an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, and was nominated for a Critics Choice Award (and should have won), and we now learn that show will be moving to Fxx for season 8.
“Archer is an awesome addition to the growing slate of original comedies on Fxx, where it will join It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Man Seeking Woman and You’re the Worst,” said Chuck Saftler, President of Program Strategy and COO, FX Networks, “Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and Floyd County continue to make one of the funniest shows on television and it’s great to see them earn the awards and acclaim that comes with one of »

“Archer” is moving to Fxx for its upcoming eighth season this spring. The animated series has been on sister network FX for the past seven seasons.
The move has been in the works for quite some time. Back in 2015, FX Networks announced that “Archer” would be moving to Fxx for Season 7, but those plans were never put into action and the series remained on FX. Now, the company is finally making the shift.
The move to Fxx comes after FX’s John Landgraf said last year that the cabler would be moving “really aggressively” into more animated series and short-form animated series.
“’Archer’ is an awesome addition to the growing slate of original comedies on Fxx, where it will join ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ ‘Man Seeking Woman,’ and ‘You’re the Worst,'” said Chuck Saftler, president of program strategy and COO of FX Networks. “Adam Reed, Matt Thompson, and »
