We've been so busy covering the major (and ongoing) network TV stories of the past week that we almost didn't notice one of the more bizarre and intriguing nuggets of news to come out of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's upcoming ninth season. Specifically, it appears that 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss plucked their pens out of Westeros long enough to write an upcoming episode! Will Dee go from bird to Mother of Dragons? Find out inside!
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Earlier in the year, we heard rumors that FX might look to spinoff its comedy properties into a separate network titled "FXX," to debut in September of this year. Now, as news pours out of the cable network's Upfront presentation, we've learned that FXX will indeed break off from FX and debut in 74 million homes this September, but will it be a comedy-central channel, or appeal to a broader demographic?
Through eight seasons of misadventures at Paddy's Pub, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has long been the cornerstone of FX comedy at the increasingly popular cable network. Now, as the gang heads into a ninth season following a slightly truncated 10-episode outing, are we any closer to learning where the long-running comedy might end? Find out which 'Always Sunny' star has all-but-confirmed a tenth season inside!
A few months ago we were surprised and saddened to learn that acclaimed FX dramedy 'Louie' was to take a long hiatus while comedian Louis C.K. toured and developed new material, finally premiering its fourth season in 2014. New reports about FX's evolving structure however could mean that when 'Louie' returns in 2014, it may not return to FX at all, but rather a spin-off network! Find out if "FXX" is the new home of FX comedies inside!
Like a last call at Paddy's Pub, there are some moments spent with the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gang that we hope never end. Still, with the most recent eighth season clocking in at no more than 10 episodes, could there be an imminent end to the misadventures of Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Sweet Dee and Frank on the horizon? Will the next season be the last for the 'Sunny' gang? New word from FX addresses the future of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!'
The eighth season of FX's long-running 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' may have come and gone far too quickly but that doesn't mean the gang will be going anywhere any time soon. And now, like 'Game of Thrones' before it, we'll all be able to live our collective dreams of drinking like the characters of 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' with their very own 'Sunny' inspired beer! Find out how you can guzzle down a bottle of "Dayman" (that sounded better in our heads) inside!
That was quick. ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is concluding its eight season with "Reynolds vs. Reynolds: The Cereal Defense." Perhaps the season is only ten episodes because Charlie Day was busy shooting 'Pacific Rim.' Though the last episode "The Gang Dines Out" was just okay, we're hoping they're going to go out strong.
‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ has had an okay season so far. This may not be an all-timer, but there's definitely been some good to great episodes, and only a few mild clunkers. Last week's episode "Charlie Rules the World" was one of the best, so here's hoping with tonight's penultimate season eight episode, "The Gang Dines Out."
Though this may not be a peak season of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,‘ there's been some great episodes this year, even if the batting average is lower. Last week's episode "Frank's Back in Business" was a little weak, so we're hoping this week's episode, "Charlie Rules the World" puts them back on their A-game.
