I covered The League last week and this week I’m covering It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, FX’s flagship comedy series. Last week’s season opener for the show culminated in one of the funniest one liner’s in the show’s history in a sequence that saw Mac saying “It’s an Original Hitler” when it came to a picture Sweet Dee and Dennis’ Grandfather, a Nazi. It was an episode that harkened back to the second season and it was appreciated. Unlike most sitcoms that generally “forget” what has happened in the past of the show, it is a nice change of pace to show that the characters in It’s Always Sunny actually have memories.

And it sure sounds like the second episode will be filled with laughs, especially impressive for a show that is in its eighth season. It’s rare, and thus great, to see that the characters are still funny, not warn out, and are not getting on my nerves as a viewer. The only thing I question with the show is whether or not it can keep the laughs coming, which I bet they will seeing as though there are network shows that have more episodes, run longer, and keep up with the laughs (cue Friends and Seinfeld). I’m just glad that It’s Always Sunny is back!

Official Episode Description, “The Gang Recycles Trash”: With the garbage men of Philadelphia on strike, Frank concocts a plan to undercut the union and get the contract to collect the city’s trash. But when The Gang’s elaborate plan starts to fall apart, everyone will get their hands a little dirtier than expected.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns tonight at 10:00pm on FX Network. FX has really had our attention this week between this, American Horror Story, and Sons of Anarchy!

FX Shows, It's Always Sunny, Nip Tuck

One of the most innovative channels on television, the FX Network, has revealed their fall start dates for their comedies Sons of Anarchy and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and the twisted medical drama Nip/Tuck.

Anarchy, which stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, and complete badass Ron Perlman, will begin airing new episodes on September 8th (a Tuesday) at 10pm. The series focuses on the lives of a Northern Californian motorcycle club. This will be the comedy’s second season.

Sunny is easily one of my favorite shows on TV. It is consistently funny while crossing way over the line.  It returns to it’s Thursday  10pm time slot (although I prefer to Tivo it and watch it on Sundays with my coffee and breakfast). It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was created by and stars the team of Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day.  The series co-stars comedy legend Danny DeVito, and Kaitlin Olson. It focuses on a crude group of friends that own a bar in Philly.

The final season of Nip/Tuck will not start airing until October and will only consist of 10 episodes that will wrap up the lives of plastic surgeons Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon). Sadly, I fell out of touch with the show in its forth season (the show is entering its sixth season). The storylines were outrageous from the beginning, but by the forth season, none of the characters were remotely likable. With no one left to root for, what is the point? I’m going to give the new season a chance and I really hope they they can recapture some of the energy and balance that the first two seasons had.

Are you excited for new episodes of any of FX’s fall lineup?
