It has been only a few weeks since Atlanta and Better Things made their premieres. FX just renewed the two shows. Each show will have 10-episode second seasons.
Especially, Donald Glover‘s Atlanta is a star for the fall TV season it played for 3 million viewers on September 3 and caught Baskets’ 2014 premiere as ratings as a basic cable comedy series.
Better Things is also doing well. Pamela Adlon‘s comedy focuses on a single mom of three girls who has an acting career and having difficulties in her personal life. So far the ratings are solid.
FX’s original programming presidents, Nick Grad and Eric Schrier made a statement about these two comedies:
“It’s really gratifying to launch two new comedies that have received overwhelming critical acclaim right out of the gate and that are emblematic of FX’s award-winning brand. It is clear to us thatAtlanta and Better Things have struck a nerve with viewers. They, along with their spectacular casts, writers and directors, have created exceptional shows that we are incredibly proud to produce.”
We highly recommend these two shows as they really do comedy well.
