FX president discusses the pile-on and popularity of violent TV shows


PASADENA, Calif. —

"The top six are all in some way about violence," he said. "Let's not kid ourselves; that will always be very compelling for people to watch.

He noted that such shows as "The Walking Dead" and "Sons of Anarchy" are tailored to appeal to viewers in their 20s.

"You think it's just that younger people's fears tend to go more towards zombies?" one critic asked.

"I do," Landgraf said. "I'm 50. I worry about cancer."
