“The League“ kicks off its new season this Wednesday, September 4, at 10:30pm on a new station called FXX. If you’re not familiar with the show “The League” is semi-scripted show about a group of (mostly) guys in a fantasy football league. The show features on of my favorite comedians, Nick Kroll, and a handful of other funny guys. There are plenty of not-so-random appearances by NFL players throughout each season (You’ll see that in the preview below).
“The League” is easily one of my favorite shows on TV. The skill involved with being a comedian in a semi-scripted TV show allows for the actors to show real, off the cuff, talent. While fantasy football is the backdrop of the show the non-football scenes shouldn’t be discarded. One of my favorite characters from last season was Gina Gibiatti played by Brooklyn Decker. The character had nothing to do with football but was crudely brilliant.
To say I’m excited for the show is a bit of an undersell. I’ve been binge watching the first few seasons of “The League” for the third or fourth time on Netflix for the past week. You can find DVD’s and streams from all seasons of “The League” on Amazon.
FXX is a new all comedy channel from Fox. FXX will also be showing “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. It’s taking over the station that was formerly Fox Soccer so it’s probably not located anywhere that you’d find a random comedy channel. FXX has a website for you to locate the station. In Las Vegas you can find FXX on Cox channel 335 for the time being and there’s no HD available for FXX in Las Vegas (BOO!).
Here are some previews for the new season of “The League” and you can find a lot more previews and teasers on the FXX Facebook.
Rafi Domination League (Rafi is possibly the best TV character created in the past 10 years.)
