brand x totally biased fx 'BrandX' and 'Totally Biased' picked up at FXFX is sticking with its late-night shows “BrandX with Russell Brand” and “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.”

The cable channel picked up 13 additional episodes each of the weekly shows, and it’s also expanding “BrandX” to a full hour. The show’s final installment of this year, which airs Thursday (Nov. 29), will run one hour, and it will stay with the longer format when it returns on Feb. 7, 2013. Sarah Silverman and author Daniel Pinchbeck are the guests for Thursday’s show.

“Totally Biased” also wraps up its 2012 run on Thursday with guest John Oliver of “The Daily Show.” It will return to FX’s lineup on Jan. 17.

“We’re proud to have two of the most strikingly original and funny voices in late night as part of the FX comedy lineup,” says Nick Grad, FX’s head of original programming. “Russell’s irrepressible energy and unique style have made ‘BrandX’ a daring show where anything can happen. Kamau is one of the sharpest, smartest and funniest comedians in the business. The New York Times called him ‘the most promising talent in political comedy in many years,’ and we couldn’t agree more.”
