The “Cassius & Clay” animated pilot hails from Megan Ganz (“Modern Family” and “Community”) and “Archer” creator Adam Reed of Floyd County Productions. Both will serve as writers and exec producers on the FX Productions project.
Described as an animated action-buddy-comedy centered on two women living as bandits in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic America, the A-list voice cast includes “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star Kaitlin Olson and Lake Bell (“Childrens Hospital”), as the title characters, Ordwood Cassius and Shopcarter Clay. Cassius (Olson) is a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-sh-tter who has more debts than sense, and Clay (Bell) is the fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South who doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it.
Susan Sarandon is also a series regular with Jeffrey Tambor,

Back in September 2011, the cable channel ordered 13 episodes. The first 10 installments aired from January through March, paired with Archer. The last episode to air in March attracted just 510,000 viewers, compared to Archer's 1.33 million viewers.
Despite garnering poor ratings, FX opted to order a second season of Unsupervised in late March. There's no word on when they'll air or how many installments have been ordered.
Unsupervised revolves around two 15-year-old best friends -- Gary (Justin Long) and Joel (David Hornsby) -- who try to do the right thing without parental supervision. The voice cast also includes Alexa Vega, Fred Armisen,

“It was an easy decision to order more Archer,” said Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for FX. “Adam, Matt, and our amazing voice cast are delivering one of the funniest and smartest shows on television. It has deservedly grown beyond its initial cult following to become both a critical and ratings success. It is a true asset to the FX comedy roster.”
FX exec Nick Grad says in a statement, "It was an easy decision to order more 'Archer.' Adam, Matt, and our amazing voice cast are delivering one of the funniest and smartest shows on television.

As for the overall deal, Reed says that he is "insanely excited that FX Productions has committed to a multi-year deal." Thompson adds, "We hope to build on this, growing into a giant animating monster that will eventually take over the world."
Ratings for "Archer" continue to grow in its third season.
FX has announced that Archer has been renewed for a fourth season of 13 episodes. In addition, the network has signed a production deal with Floyd County, the production company owned by the show's executive producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson. There's still four episodes left in the current season, including tonight's trip to West Virginia, before the finale arrives on March 22nd.
There's no word about when to expect the new episodes, though the traditional start date for the Isis gang tends to fall in mid-late January. The show aired a three episode mini-arc in September behind new episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which was said to be a part of season two.
Featuring the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, and Amber Nash, Archer follows a group of employees for the International Secret Intelligence Service (or Isis) spy agency.

We begin tonight with a refreshingly great episode of 30 Rock, possibly the best they’ve done in years. Turning to current events for the second time this season, the show finds significantly more success dealing with Alec Baldwin’s mayoral aspirations than it did Tracy Jordan’s homophobia. It opens with an amusing gag featuring Liz on the subway and a brief musical bit with a prostitute joyous upon arrival to New York City. That neither of these are mere throwaway gags and both factor into the episode that follows goes to show just how tight the writing on this episode is.
30 Rock more or less functions as a finely tuned joke machine and a good episode can usually be defined as one in which work than fall flat.

Valentine’s Day episodes seem to be a necessary evil if your show happens to run on one of the networks. There must be some data out there that suggests they help ratings during February sweeps but in comparison to Halloween episodes, which are usually a fair amount of fun, they often feel uninspired. Which doesn’t help things in a season of 30 Rock that uninspired describes fairly well. It’s the combination of jokes that are mildly-amusing at best and plots that feel short on innovation that has made this season feel like such a chore. If either area was working it would be significantly easier to overlook the other; unfortunately that’s not the case tonight.
The least eventful plotline tonight features Frank and Tracy
