FXX Turns 10: 10 Standout Shows From the Spinoff Cable Channel | Entertainment


A decade ago now, the cable channel Fox Soccer switched to FXX in 75 million households. The new television destination launched on September 2, 2013, offering a younger-skewing alternative to the flagship FX channel.

As Variety reported at the time, FX Networks boss John Landgraf imagined a “suite” of general entertainment networks that wouldn’t fall into broadcast TV’s “all-things-to-all-people” problem: FX would focus on 18-to-49-year-olds, FXX would appeal to 18-to-34-year-olds, and the movie-centric FXM would attract 25-to-54-year-olds.
