In addition to the 13-episode order, FX Prods has sealed an overall production deal with Reed and Thompson and their animation studio, Floyd County Prods. According to Deadline.com, Archer has posted ratings gains vs. Season 2 of 62% in adults 18-34 (1.03 million), 44% in adults 18-49 (1.58 million) and 32% in total viewers (2.0 million). The show’s second season also was up from Season 1. On a weekly basis, Season 3 of Archer is averaging 3.31 million total viewers.
