For its first seven episodes, Archer is averaging 1.2 million total viewers with 853,000 in the 18-49 demographic, according to Nielsen. The show is scheduled to return with its final three episodes of the first season March 4. The finale airs March 18.
FX increased the second-season episode order to 13 from 10 for season one.
