FX Is Putting A Lot of Eggs in the June 28 Basket


Louie, Wilfred, Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management, and Russell Brand’s Strangely Uplifting will all premiere on FX on the same day, June 28. Here are some things that could go wrong with this programming strategy:

- a nationwide power outage on June 28

- Charlie Sheen and Russell Brand strike up a huge beef in May when Charlie and Katy Perry are seen canoodling at a club, forcing the viewing public to choose sides and not watch the enemy’s show

- someone really, really famous (Oprah?) dies on June 28 and everyone’s too busy looking at Twitter to watch TV

- cable installers schedule a union strike for the week of June 25-29 or until they’re given cooler uniforms
