FX is re-committing to its two recent relationship comedies.
FX Networks has renewed its freshman comedies “Married” and “You’re the Worst,” with each series receiving an order for a 13-episode second season.
“You’re the Worst,” however, will move to sister station FXX for its second season.
“We love these shows and the creative visions of Andrew Gurland of ‘Married’ and Stephen Falk of ‘You’re the Worst,'” said Nick Grad, president of original programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “Both series have terrific ensemble casts and outstanding lead performances — Nat Faxon and Judy Greer in ‘Married,’ and Chris Geere and Aya Cash in ‘You’re the Worst.’ These shows are honest, 360-degree looks at relationships and we’re excited to see how they evolve.”

In its first season, “Married” is averaging 1.96 million total viewers on a weekly basis, with 1.35 million of them in the 18-49 demographic most sought by advertisers.
“You’re the Worst” is averaging 1.65 million total viewers, with 109 million in the demo.
Half-hour comedy “Married” stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as Russ and Lina Bowman, who can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt and suburbia rained on their romance. But every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends.
“You’re the Worst,” from writer/executive producer Stephen Falk, is described as “a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people who haven’t been very successful with either.”
