'SNL' Scorecard: Did Charlie Day Have a Great Saturday Night?

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 6th 2011 10:25AM


Well, what a difference a couple weeks off can make. Charlie Day lent his manic persona to a show that started slowly (the cold open was immediately forgettable) became worse (I wonder how many people switched off their televisions during the 'Dr. Oz' sketch), then found itself in a zone that, for the most part, built momentum as the show continued – thanks mostly to the chemistry between Day and Jason Sudeikis. Even Seth Meyers, who has often looked bored so far this season, hosted 'Update' with an aplomb that I was starting to forget existed (and having Hader visit as a drunk Rick Perry sure helped, too). There is hope! At least I have hope! Off to what just may be the first happier than not scorecard of the season...

The 'It's Always Sunny' Gang Talks Prostitutes, Pageants & Season 7 (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 9th 2011 1:45PM
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is back for a seventh season (premieres Thurs., Sept. 15, 10PM ET on FX), and judging by what the cast revealed when I visited the set, the gang is all in fine 'Sunny' form.

"This is like, without a doubt, the craziest season," Danny DeVito said. "Danny brought it all in," Rob McElhenney noted. "And he's devolved over the last few years on a personal level, and so we've taken advantage of that and put that in the show."

The season premiere features their version of 'Pretty Woman,' which is much more grounded in reality. "Julia Roberts would only look like Julia Roberts for a very short period of time on the streets before looking like Julio Roberts," Glenn Howerton said. Charlie Day chimed in, "Someone would've cut that b*tch!"

Then there's a 'Toddlers & Tiaras'-inspired kids beauty pageant that the cast had a lot of fun with. "It's one of my favorites," Kaitlin Olson admitted. "Dee's really into it, which is always so fun for me, when she's super into something." "Put a five year old in some WOW! Wear, and it just says America," Day added.

Pilot News: CBS Picks Up Show From 'Borat' Duo

by Mike Scalise, posted Feb 12th 2010 11:30AM
The 'Borat' crew will be tackling some daddy issues.

According to Variety, CBS just gave the green light to the writer/director team of the 2006 mega hit 'Borat' -- Anthony Hines and Larry Charles, respectively -- to develop a comedy pilot about a father (Paul Kaye) who re-enters the life of his newly famous daughter. (No word yet on if Michael Lohan or Billy Ray Cyrus have been enlisted to consult.)

This news caps off a busy few months for Charles, who will work with McG ('Terminator: Salvation'; 'Charlie's Angels') on a "semi-scripted" project for NBC that will feature sci-fi enthusiasts submitting fan films of their favorite canceled shows.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - The Gang Reignites the Rivalry (season finale)

Well, that's it for season five of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It would have been foolish to expect something mind-blowing this week, because, as usual, the show didn't go out with a bang or any nail-biting cliffhanger. Instead, there were people vomiting, naked chicks in blacklight paint, beer, and lots of screaming. Just another day for the owners of Paddy's Pub.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Mac and Charlie Write a Movie

I think we all need to take a hot second to review what fantastic, life-improving ideas this season has presented us thus far. Earlier, we learned the benefits of funneling box wine into soda cans (beyond the immediate high class appeal of it all). Then we were schooled in the ways of the DENNIS System, allowing us to more efficiently get ladies to bang. And in this episode, we learned that keeping sausage links in your shirt pocket is a smart way to keep your hands free and open to get greasy in other ways.

This is all shaping up to be a fine education, folks. I think it goes without saying that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is Sesame Street for adults.

What Annie is thankful for

by Annie Wu, posted Nov 25th 2009 2:04PM
tina feyI figured I may as well make this list before I food-punish myself into a turkey-flavored coma this Thursday. It's true, television has gone through its ups and downs in the past year. A bit of residual anger still bubbles within me when I think of Jay Leno shuffling not-so-subtly around Conan O'Brien or the fact that I'll never be as daring or funny as the writers behind Peep Show, but Thanksgiving is not meant for dwelling on silly things like that (it's what the rest of the year's for). Let's review my list of a few (TV-related) things that I'm thankful for, and then I promise I'll let everyone leave and stuff their faces.

Community: I've liked this show since the pilot and I'm thrilled to see it taking off. In the beginning, I enjoyed its snappy dialogue and overall attitude, but feared that it wouldn't find a direction until NBC got impatient and chopped it from the schedule.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - The DENNIS System

A weird thing has been happening this season, where I find myself really appreciating what the writers have been doing with the gang but I'm not laughing nearly as much as I should. This episode was a prime example of that. Dennis is notorious for his way with women, so hearing a full breakdown of the DENNIS System should have been a complete riot (a riot with cringing, sure). I smiled at certain parts and quietly enjoyed the scary-elaborate ways of Dennis and the rest of the gang, though ultimately, the laughs fell short. Perhaps things are feeling a little forced this season?

Trust in the douchiness of your characters and the chemistry of your actors, writers! The lines will come.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Mac and Dennis Break Up

(S05E09) Well. This episode was certainly successful in further quelling the doubts of any audience members that are still, for whatever reason, unconvinced that all the guys from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are actually super-gay for each other. Yeah, not just "gay" but "super-gay." Considering the adorable, almost symbiotic nature of the guys' relationships, I would probably just refer to them as "hetero lifemates," but Frank and Charlie play Nightcrawlers and we all know what happened onstage between Dayman and Nightman in "The Nightman Cometh." Don't fight it.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens

Yes! Finally. The moment we've all been waiting for. Ever since the season five promos first aired, I have been eagerly anticipating some sort of context for Charlie's uncontrollable eyebrows and the ridiculous Kitten Mittens (or Kitten Mittons, as it were). Seeing the ad in full certainly didn't disappoint, though I wish we could have seen more Kitten Mittons throughout the episode. Admittedly, thirty-some minutes of cats struggling in booties probably doesn't sound like a hot idea, but, hey, animal humor has sustained many a clip show.

Plus, I heart over-enthusiastic Charlie.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - The World Series Defense

(S05E06)
Ooh! Things I learned in high school! This episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was presented as a frame story, just like The Canterbury Tales. Did the gang out-Chaucer Chaucer!? Well, no, but it was a lot funnier than the Wife of Bath, I can promise you that.

There were a lot of excellent moments (read on to find out who won the "Best Retch-Face" award, which is as coveted as it is imaginary) and they made for a solid episode, though not one to immediately jump into my favorites. Admittedly, that's an unreasonable weekly expectation anyway. Oh well. At least we got some Greenman.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia: The Waitress Is Getting Married

(S05E05) This, more than any of the other episodes from the current season, felt the most true to the show. I know, that's kind of weird, since the canon is growing and developing with every installment, but this episode had all the things that we've come to know and love from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, from Frank's increasingly speedy spiral toward rock-bottom to Charlie and Dee's personal issues with the Waitress (never give her a name, for the love of everything that is terrible and in poor form). The schemes and the chemistry of the gang was extra-perfect in this episode, especially during the rapid-fire conversations surrounding Mac, Dennis and Charlie.

This is one of those episodes I've pocketed away in case I need to subject -- I mean, introduce -- an uninitiated person to the world of Always Sunny.
