A few months ago we heard the monumental news that FXX had paid an astonishing $750 million for syndication and streaming rights to the entire library of 'The Simpsons,' not only an unprecedented deal in the history of TV rights, but also for making America's favorite animated family more accessible than ever before. Now, the network has announced its intent to kick things off with an impressive 12-day marathon of all 522 episodes this coming August.

We'd known through the most recent season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' that 2014 might see the last outings for Charlie, Mac, Dennis, Frank and Sweet Dee, but it seems FX and FXX placed a hefty investment in Paddy's Pub. 'Always Sunny' has officially been renewed for two more seasons, atop the already-ordered 10th season this year, while creative minds Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton will also develop multiple new projects, including a new Tracy Morgan series.
FX's spinoff network FXX has proven something of a challenge for the company in its initial months, recently forcing 'Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell' into an early grave, but it seems the cable network offshoot will finally start turning some major heads. 'The Simpsons' has licensed their first 24 seasons to FXX in a major syndication deal that will also see America's favorite animated family available on demand for the very first time.
It's time to play some Boyz II Men, as tonight brings the season finale of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and after this run, it's going to be hard to say goodbye (to yesterday). It's been a great year with few bum notes, so it's going to be a long wait for the gang's return in 2014.
We haven't heard much from comedian Jim Jefferies' FXX (formerly FX) comedy 'Legit' since closing out the inaugural season this year, but it seems the breakout hit is far from its most desperate hour. The once (and future?) Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher will take on a role when 'Legit' returns for a second season on FXX, but who will the formerly Alderaanian princess portray?
Wow, the latest season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has just flown by as we're already at the penultimate episode of this year. And it's been a strong season, one of their best ever, which leads to high hopes for "The Gang Makes Lethal Weapon 6," which sounds amazing from the outset. Alas.
This season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has been on fire, so it will be interesting to see what 'Game of Thrones' creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss bring to Paddy's Pub as they're the writers of tonight's episode "Flowers for Charlie." Hopefully they'll steer clear of too many winks at Westeros.
We're more than halfway done with Season 9 of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and it's already looking like an all-timer. They show and its creators have been on fire, and maybe the ten-episode season or something kicked it up a notch. Tonight's episode, "The Gang Gets Quarantined" wasn't as sharp as previous episodes, but it was solid -- perhaps this was their Halloween episode.
Tonight's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is spin on the old arthouse hit 'Run Lola Run' as it shows what goes inside the gang's head as they confront a robbery. With this ninth season proving very strong, tonight's episode "The Gang Save the Day" continues this streak with smart laughs throughout.
This Week's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gets a guest visit from Seann William Scott, who plays Mac's cousin Country Mac. It's a good fit, and he plays the better version of Mac.
