FX renews ‘Archer’

Network orders 13 more episodes

FX took another step toward cementing its growing comedy block by renewing toon laffer “Archer” for a second season.

Net said Monday that it has ordered 13 episodes for season two, which will launch in 2011. Ten episodes were ordered for season one.

Through its first seven episodes, “Archer,” about a dysfunctional spy agency, was averaging 1.2 million viewers.

“We’re very happy with the audience response and critical acclaim for ‘Archer,’ ” said Nick Grad, exec VP of original programming.

Renewal for “Archer” comes on the heels of the sophomore season pickup for “The League,” which bowed last fall.

Also on the comedy front, FX recently announced that the premiere for “Louie,” from exec producer Louis C.K., has been moved from April 1 to June 1, and will be paired with hourlong Denis Leary starrer “Rescue Me.”

“Archer” is exec produced by Adam Reed and Matthew Thompson, and produced by FX Prods.
