    Given the track record of the game, I would put the likelihood at <1% (for a marathon tie-in).

    They've tied in to plenty of episodes, the fact we haven't had anything in three weeks is hardly a condemnation of the game.

    I didn't say anything about the last three weeks, nor did I condemn the game.

    Then what else does "this game's track record" mean?

    Meaning, they don't usually do things for "current events." Yes, they've had specific tie-ins to single new episodes, as a way to promote them. But the FXX marathon isn't that. It's 500+ shows. Single episodes are much easier to produce content for when it comes to it. Plus, FXX isn't a channel that is very prevalent (when compared to Fox or even FX), so to promote the marathon with a game tie-in seems a bit iffy.

    Furthermore, the timing seems off, given the track record of the game. It seems like if we were going to get content or a tie-in for the marathon, we'd have it today. I think episode tie-ins usually come out 3 days before the episode airs.
