Rogers to launch FX Canada, and now we can hear Louis C.K. call his daughter an asshole on television
It’s not as if popular television is inaccessible, especially with various online services offering new Megavideo links and other ways to stream (the ethical consumer uses iTunes or Netflix). But sometimes, the tradition of sitting in front of a TV and zoning out with snacks and friends beats the solo mission of a MacBook and crumbs in the bed. On Saturday, Scott Moore, president of broadcasting at Rogers, announced at the Critics Association Summer Press Tour that the company will be launching FX Canada on Nov. 1, and the Canuck version will feature American Horror Story, Wilfred, The League, Sons of Anarchy and Louie (there is no word on any original programming). Since Canadians have been limited to watching FX programming online, it may surprise some people to learn where their favourite shows have come from, but for others—the uninitiated— it’ll mean being able to watch a comic father verbally abuse hecklers, or, um, watch The League (but only people who laugh at “wee wee” jokes, Jon Lajoie and fantasy football humour will enjoy this one).
