'Archer' Recap: 'The Holdout' - New Job, Same As The Old Job

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'The Holdout' - New Job, Same As The
Last season's drug-dealing escapades left Sterling Archer with a lot to process. Not only did the world's greatest spy (in his own head) have the usual job difficulties, many of them self-inflicted, but his ex-girlfriend Lana Kane dropped a major bombshell on him.

So when we begin season six of Archer, six weeks later, Archer has done exactly what you'd expect him to do when faced with responsibility.

He's run away.

"The Holdout" opens with Archer in a familiar position - hungover in a foreign country and being screamed at by Malory, who chastizes him for being an overgrown child "on one...

Interview: 'Archer' Season 6: Lucky Yates Dishes On Krieger (Or Is He?!)

'Archer' Season 6: Lucky Yates Dishes On Krieger (Or Is He?!)
FX's Archer is the funniest show on television, because the people who make it are the funniest people in television. Case in point: Dr. Algernop Krieger, the crazed but oh so well intentioned clone of Adolf Hitler, is voiced by Lucky Yates, the crazed and relentlessly hilarious actor who is not a clone (that we know of). He can find the humor in anything, whether it's his character's latest scheme or just writing his own biography.

So we had a very hard time keeping a straight face when we caught up with Lucky to ask him about tonight's new season of Archer, how it felt to start over afte...

John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years

January 8th, 2015 9:41am EST
John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years In 'American Crime St
Way, way (way) back in the day, John Travolta was known as a TV actor, and not a film one. Travolta was Vinnie Barbarino on the hit series "Welcome Back, Kotter."

Then, nothing for 40 years (barring a couple of minor cameos).

But now, Travolta's returning to the small screen. The former Barbarino will be starring in FX's upcoming true crime series, "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson."

Travolta will play Robert Shapiro, Simpson's attorney, in the series, itself a spin-off of FX's "American Horror Story." Like "Horror," "Crime" will be an anthology series- that is, each sea...

A Look Back At 'Archer Vice': Cocaine, Country And Kenny Loggins

A Look Back At 'Archer Vice': Cocaine, Country And Kenny Loggins
Archer Vice is dead; long live Archer. That's the mantra, as FX's supremely hilarious animated series returns for its sixth season on Thursday. But its fifth-season detour was still a thing of inappropriate brilliance, and now that it's available on home video, it's the perfect time to look back on the crazy idea that was Archer Vice.

By now, you know the story: in trouble with the government (again), Sterling Archer and his spy-agency cohorts wind up trying to make a living selling a large quantity of cocaine that just happens to have fallen into their possession. This goes as well for th...

The Goriest Deaths You Won't Believe They Got Away With On Network TV

The Goriest Deaths You Won't Believe They Got Away With On Netwo
TV used to have rules. On pay cable- your HBOs, your Cinemaxes- anything and everything is fair play.

Want to turn a TV show into softcore porn? Watch a man's skull pop in the grip of a man-mountain? Replace an entire scene's worth of dialogue with nothing but F-bombs?

Go for it. It's pay cable- no one can stop you.

But the other TV stations- the kinder, gentler ones that don't cost a bundle on top of your normal cable bill each month- those are supposed to tone down the violence.

Not anymore. Now, the same network that once brought you "Friends" brings an assembly line of severed faces...

American Horror Story Freak Show Recap: 5 Weirdest Moments From
Well, that was a weird waste of an hour. No Dandy. Barely even inching forward in the plot. An episode completely devoted to a character that’s spent two seasons in the background, barely relevant. Yet, “Orphans” managed to be one of the strangest and strangely emotional episodes of this season. Here are the 5 weirdest moments from a very bizarre episode:

Elsa and Pepper’s Previously Unmentioned Relationship

In an attempt to humanize a character that calls her closest companions her “monsters,” “Orphans” creates a backstory for Pepper and Elsa that paints them as closer than ever formerly...
