Network: FX
Stars: Jim Jefferies, D.J. Qualls, Dan Bakkedahl
Premieres: January 17

Why we're excited: FX is as strong with comedy (Louie, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Wilfred, Archer) as it is with drama (Justified, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story), and the network is giving Australian canine Wilfred some native company with its latest half-hour effort, Legit. The series will follow Aussie stand-up comedian Jim Jefferies as a foul funnyman navigating the day-to-day of Los Angeles with his best friends. A low-key, cost effective, basic premise that stands to yield lots of laughs and attention? Sounds like the type of sitcom FX does best.
