Holy Shitsnacks! ‘Archer’ Is Coming To Comedy Central

The 2nd highest rated comedy on cable, ‘Archer‘, is headed to Comedy Central in a basic cable to basic cable syndication deal similar to what Comedy Central has done with ‘It’s Always Sunny’.

Deadline is reporting that Comedy Central has inked pre-midnight exclusivity to the syndicated show for the first two years of the landmark deal, while FXX will maintain post-midnight exclusivity.

Archer is the #2 comedy on basic cable for the 18-49 demographic, and the #1 rated comedy for FXX. So one can only imagine what the financials of this deal might be worth.

From Deadline:

Hit animated comedy Archer is following in the footsteps of fellow FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, landing an elusive basic cable-to-basic cable syndication deal. Comedy Central, the off-network home of Sunny In Philadelphia, has inked a deal with Twentieth Television for the off-network rights to Archer, basic cable’s second-highest-rated comedy among adults 18-49 and No.1 on FX. The deal covers all existing seasons and includes commitments for future seasons of the spy toon, which will begin airing on Comedy Central beginning as soon as May 2015. For the first two years, Comedy Central will have exclusive window pre-midnight, while FXX has exclusivity post-midnight. After that there will be no exclusive windowing parameters.
