‘Archer' Premiere A Ratings Bullseye For FX
FX's first animated comedy series starts strong with 1.8 million viewers

Archer drew 1.8 million total viewers at 10 p.m., including 1.2 million P18-49. At 10:30 FX re-aired the pilot episode, which it previewed last fall after It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. That episode drew 1.4 million viewers, including 950,000 P18-49.
Those numbers bode well for the series. FX's last new comedy, The League, launched after Sunny in October and drew just 1 million viewers in its debut. Despite the soft launch, it performed well enough its first season to get a second season order.
The League and Sunny ended up growing their audiences as their seasons wore on. If Archer does the same, it could turn into a bona fide hit.
