It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia to air on Comedy Central
This was bound to happen, wasn't it?
In a TV first, a sitcom from a basic cable network has been syndicated on another basic cable network: Comedy Central has nabbed the rights to FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
According to the press release, the gang from Paddy's Pub will make an appearance for the first time on Comedy Central for a limited run next summer with the long-term license window starting after the first of the year in 2011.
By then, season six of Sunny will have finished airing on FX, meaning Comedy Central will have 71 episodes of retard-bashing, semi-racist, poop-humored fun to play around with on their schedule. FX has already renewed Sunny through season seven though, so a total of 84 episodes are currently guaranteed.
While this seems like a great fit , it makes me wonder what they'd pair it with. Had Reno 911! not been canceled, that would have seemed like the obvious choice but now I'm not so sure. I mean, c'mon - have you seen Secret Girlfriend?!? At least they have over a year to develop something solid to pair with Dennis, Mac, Charlie, Dee, and Frank.
