The New F-o's to be Featured on FX Sitcom Wilfred and MTV's Jersey Shore

Seems like that licensing deal is working out well for Phoenix-based hip-hoppers The New F-o's. The group's song "Good and the Bad" will be featured on tonight's episode of the FX sitcom Wilfred.

In case you haven't got hip to it, the show features Elijah Wood and Jason Gann in a dog suit, who of course speaks in an Australian accent and spews profanities. It's pretty awesome, and The New F-o's style of funky alternative hip-hop should make a nice addition to the program.

The announcement comes just a week after the band received airplay on a show very different from the oddball, sarcastic dude 'n' dog program: Jersey Shore.

"Wilfred is a cool show, that dog is crazy as shit," says Lifted, one half of the duo. "We're stoked and appreciate the opportunity and exposure."

His compatriot Pancho agrees. "Wilfred is one crazy dog."

The two also enjoyed being a part of the Jersey Shore experience. Their song "Be the One (featuring Hannibal Leq)" was used as background music on the popular (and despised) MTV show.

"Jersey Shore is wild when i watch it," Lifted says. "Snookie is my favorite cast member because she's "turnt up" the whole damn time!"

"I wasn't a fan of the show when it first came out," Pancho says. "But I can safely say I've warmed up to it more the last two seasons. I gotta say, I like me a JWoww!"
