FX axes comedies 'Legit' and 'Chozen'

FX canceled freshman comedy Chozen, while offshoot network FXX axed Legit on Wednesday.

Legit managed to last two seasons and will close out its second season tonight. Show star and co-creator Jim Jefferies made the announcement through a Facebook post noting, "Sorry to everyone who was a fan of the show, please watch tonight ... I am very proud of the work that I did on the show." According to Variety the series was also created by Peter O'Fallen and in addition to Jefferies, starred Dan Bakkedahl and DJ Qualls.

The series struggled in the ratings, with the second season losing many of those who watched the first. Legit only averaged 300,000 viewers when it returned in February, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The animated comedy Chozen, meanwhile, lasted all of one season as it never managed to find a foothold with viewers. The Danny McBride-produced FX program debuted to under 1 million viewers and plummeted from there.

FX has already picked up plenty of new shows set to replace either comedy, including You're the Worst, Married and The Comedians - which stars Billy Crystal and will debut next year.
