I’m not sure what exactly won me over about this deadpan comedy in its first season; Maybe it was Chip Basket’s (Zach Galifianakis) desire to be a French clown (it ended badly), maybe it was Martha (Martha Kelly), an insurance claims adjuster who wants to be Chip’s friend, but more than likely it’s Louie Anderson’s Emmy-winning turn as Chip’s mother, Christine. It’s not for everyone, but fans can rejoice for tonight’s season- two premiere, 10 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, on FX.

How best to describe this new Louis C.K.-produced comedy? It concerns Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis), a man who wants to be a French clown but can’t speak French. He then decides to move home from Paris to Bakersfield, Calif., where he becomes a rodeo clown. And his family is a sight to behold (he has a twin brother, and his mother is played by Louie Anderson). The words eccentric or quirky seem inadequate, So let’s go with tres magnifique. 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, on FX.
Nat Faxon and Judy Greer star in this comedy — now in its second season — as married couple Russ and Lina Bowman. While not as bright and sunny as other comedies about modern family life, Faxon and Greer are good enough to make you hope for the best for these characters. Great comic support is offered by Brett Gelman, Jenny Slate, Paul Reiser and Sarah Burns, as the Bowmans’ circle of friends. 10:30 p.m. Thursday, July 30, on FX.
Fans are glad they didn’t have to wait too long for the return of Louis C.K.’s comedy series (he writes and directs all the episodes). His brand of comedy may not be for everyone, but those who enjoy C.K.’s unique blend of stand-up and uncomfortable everyman humor are sure to be in awkward bliss. 10:33 p.m. Thursday, April 23, on FX

This engaging drama series (based on Elmore Leonard’s novella “Fire in the Hole”) enters its sixth and final season with the promise of a final showdown between Deptuty U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and longtime criminal Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). This show has featured some great writing and acting in past seasons (R.I.P. Margo Martindale’s Mags Bennett) and will truly be missed. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20, on FX.
The characters who populate Adam Reed’s animated comedy are all employees of an international spy agency and are more than a little off the beam. We learned in last week’s Season 6 premiere that the agency has been absorbed by the C.I.A., but that hasn’t put a damper on any of the (hilarious) covert activities. The great voice talent features H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter and Judy Greer.

Set near the U.S./Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, this gritty cross-cultural crime thriller returns for a second season with a new case involving the body of a cartel member who is found on U.S. soil. Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir are back as two very different kinds of police officers. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 9, on FX.
