FX has had enough of Brand X, but not enough of Russell Brand

Alas, FX has decided to end its late-night dalliances with Russell Brand, the fellow of infinite chest, of most excellent self-fancy having failed to spark a following for Brand X, even after several format changes, toying with a live broadcast, and Brand tilting his head and acting whimsically confused upon hearing that his show isn’t popular enough. However, even though all of these things didn’t work, the network remains convinced it can give America the Russell Brand it hypothetically wants: FX says it’s currently developing a Curb Your Enthusiasm-like scripted comedy where Brand would play a loosely fictionalized version of himself, as opposed to every single other thing Russell Brand has done.
