There was a time when Thursday nights on NBC were the main source of well-written comedy on TV, and another when Sunday nights on Fox fought for that distinction. But now, the crown belongs to Wednesday night Ė itís a jester clown in this case, but still Ė and it doesnít just happen on one network anymore.
Itís Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one of the great comedy shows of the 21st century. And thanks to this ambitious video, we can all now watch the Paddy's Pub gang celebrate the use of the phrase ďgoddamnit,Ē something they say far more than many of us have ever imagined.
Thereís no show on television that makes me want to drink alcohol more than Itís Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Sure, booze always makes their problems worse, but itís not about the final result. Itís about how much drunken fun they have before waking up. Itís about living in the moment, and no one lives in the moment like these idiots.
Sometimes the things one really wants for Christmas just donít exist, especially when one is a giant TV fanatic whose mental boundary between real and fictional worlds is thinner than Captain Picardís hairline. So here are 10 fictitious items that I'd love to see under my tree on Christmas morning.
How To Watch It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 9 And Two More Great Shows That Just Started Streaming
Hopefully everybody got to live the spooky life this weekend in Halloween's afterglow, but it's time to put away the masks and put on whatever you feel most comfortable laughing in, as this week's choices are all comedies.
For the second time in its existence, FXXís Itís Always Sunny in Philadelphia is making audiences wait more than a full year in between seasons. But fans know that itíll be worth the time, and this first Season 10 trailer is a superb and elaborately constructed middle finger to the seriesí central fivesome.
When it comes to making things last on television, few know how to do it as smoothly and as hilariously as the gang behind FXís Itís Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is gearing up for Season 10 premiering in January. Thankfully, we may have a new way to experience their brashly bizarre comedy, as FX has given the greenlight to their pilot Pariah.
Here are five series that never got the Primetime Emmy attention they deserve, and probably never will. This obviously isnít an exhaustive list, and doesnít reflect the entire TV landscape, but these are series that have been on for multiple years that mostly retained the same level of quality and enjoyment.
The main characters on Itís Always Sunny In Philadelphia are amateur critics. They interact with and enthusiastically judge every single object, human being, beer, restaurant or philosophical idea they come across. During the early seasons, watching that aggressive scheming and unrelentingly selfish behavior was a bit jarring for many viewers. Now, itís almost comforting in a way.
During Itís Always Sunny In Philadelphiaís nine season run, Danny DeVito has been asked to do some crazy things by co-stars/ creators Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton. His character, Frank Reynolds, has hooked up with crack cocaine addicted prostitutes, hung out with Vietnamese gambling fiends, partied with people who sleep under bridges and insulted his own children to the point of almost total mental annihilation.
Excluding preview night, Sunday may very well be the easiest day at Comic-Con, for those who are willing to stick around for the remaining panels. While there are fewer events scheduled that day, there's still plenty to see and do. Sunday's become a big day for TV panels, most of which typically set up shop in Hall H.
FX is gearing up for Comic Con with a number of series set to return to the convention this year. The cable network has managed to spread their panels out to cover almost each day of SDCC, Saturday excluded. Wilfred, Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sons of Anarchy will represent FX (and FXX) at Comic Con this year, with Wilfred leading off the pack late Thursday afternoon.
The Gang takes to the moody black and white setting like a lime to a tequila shot. All three clips look superb and make me wish they would branch off into more fantastical stuff like this during the actual show itself.
What do Game of Thrones and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia have in common? As of Season 9 of the FX comedy, writers apparently. At least, for one episode anyway. The team of showrunners who are usually busy blowing our minds with each passing episode of Game of Thrones are set to pen an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia for the upcoming season.
Smartly, FXX is also bringing in some big names from the past to shore up their roster-- reruns of Arrested Development and Aaron Sorkin's short-lived Sports Night will also be airing on the new network, which is launching into 74 million homes on September 2. They're also planning to add six original comedies as well as original dramas to the lineup-- an ambitious roster for any new channel, but probably just a logical next step for a network that's had as many slam-dunks in recent years as FX.
