FX Network Premiere Night (June 28, 2012)
It’s no secret that the FX Network has been on a tear lately in terms of bold and innovative original programming. Outside of AMC, I don’t think there’s any basic cable channel with as many excellent and/or exciting shows in their current prime time lineup, in fact, FX probably has more than AMC right now. Tonight (June 28), marks the premiere of two eagerly awaited returning series’, Louie and Wilfred, as well as the debut of two highly anticipated shows, Charlie Sheen‘s Anger Management and Russell Brand‘s Brand X. Having already sold over 92,000 tickets since he announced his tour on Monday, the premiere of Louie is probably the most buzzed about show of the night, but don’t miss Jason Gann and Elijah Wood in Wilfred, it was one of my favorite shows of last year. Though tonight’s show is being officially touted as the Season 2 premiere of Wilfred, FX brought the show back last week (without too much fanfare) for a special Sneak Preview episode entitled “Progress.” Tonight’s episode of Wilfred, entitled “Letting Go,” airs at 10PM on FX, you can still watch last week’s sneak preview episode online over here.
If you perhaps missed out on the first season of Wilfred, the good news is that the show is now available on DVD and Blu-ray at all fine retailers. The even better news, is that I have a copy of the Complete First Season of Wilfred on DVD to give away to one lucky reader. To enter to win your very own copy go to www.bumpershine.com/wilfred. No purchase necessary. Contest ends on July 4 at 11:59 59 PM ET, 1 entry per person.
Wilfred season 1 DVD box art and show synopsis after the jump.
You’ll sit up and beg for more of Wilfred, the most hilarious and daringly original new comedy on TV. Elijah Wood stars as Ryan, a down-on-his-luck lawyer who forms a unique friendship with his sexy neighbor’s pet pooch “Wilfred.” Everyone else sees a dog, but Ryan sees a bong-ripping, beer-chugging, foul-mouthed Australian bloke in a furry suit (played by the outrageously funny Jason Gann.) By unleashing the surly, sweet and always adventurous Wilfred, Ryan may just learn to stand on his own hind legs and embrace the insanity of real life.
