We received a fantastic entry into the spy genre in 2012 with the release of the James Bond film Skyfall, but damn it’s going to be good to have Archer back in our lives this month. The fantastic FX spy comedy series returns for its fourth season later next week, and a new poster has been released online (bearing the headline “Quantum of Mediocrity”) along with a few amusing character interviews. Said interviews play out like the characters sat down with journalists at a junket, but in true Archer fashion they don’t exactly play out as expected. Hit the jump to check out the new poster and interviews, and click here to read our recap of the recent Archer Live event and Q&A. Archer returns for season four on Thursday, January 17th on FX.

As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for FX Networks, President and General Manager John Landgraf took some time to talk about the growth of their comedies – Wilfred, Louie, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Archer – the strength of their dramas – Sons of Anarchy, Justified and Rescue Me – their hopes for their new shows, including American Horror Story from Ryan Murphy, and what they are looking for, in the future. Here are the most interesting points: In 2011, FX is on track to achieve the highest ratings in all measures, in the 17-year history of the channel, up 17% in adults 18-49 and 18% in total viewers in prime. They have also achieved their goal of programming original dramas and comedies, all year round. FX has ordered a Season 8 and 9 of the acclaimed hit comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with an option for a Season 10, making it the longest-running live-action comedy in basic cable history. In addition, FX Productions is entering into a three-year exclusive television overall deal with RCG – the production company run by Sunny creators/executive producers Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. The full 13-episode third season of Archer will return in January 2012, with three episodes airing this Fall, behind the first three episodes of Season 7 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which premieres on September 15th. The Season 3 premiere of The League will debut after Sunny on October 6th. Wilfred was the highest-rated first season ...
I know I’m not the only Collider writer to feel that if you’re missing out on FX’s Archer, you’re missing one of the most consistently funny shows on Television. If biting satire, political commentary, and cartoon nudity are things you enjoy, chances are high you already do enjoy FX’s brilliant Archer. The cast hit Comic-Con to promote the upcoming third season, and I got to sit down with stars H. Jon Benjamin (Voice of Sterling Archer), Amber Nash (Voice of HR Director Pam Poovey), Aisha Tyler (Voice of Agent Lana Kane), and Chris Parnell (Voice of Cyril Figgis). If the cast is to be believed, Season 3 will feature: “Operational fieldwork” “Midgets” “Terrible things” Check all three video interviews after the jump. First up, Aisha Tyler (Voice of Agent Lana Kane), and Chris Parnell (Voice of Cyril Figgis) candidly discussed how the second season starts with a three-part adventure, the show could use more poop jokes, and how no thing or person should be off limits for a humorous dig, except maybe cancer. Except maybe not. According to Tyler and Parnell in Season 3 of Archer we’ll see: “A lot of Operational Fieldwork.” – Aisha Tyler “Sex happens, rift in the time space continuum, midgets come out.” – Aisha Tyler Though Parnell is quick to remind her that “We call them ‘little people’ Aisha. Jesus Christ…” The interview begins with just Aisha Tyler: :30 - First Tyler talks about which characters she does and doesn’t like on the show. 1:30- Tyler talks about how cracking wise about cancer was almost ...
