It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s 9th season is set to premiere September 4th, or about 3 weeks from today. To make people aware of this date, as well as the shows move to new channel FXX (the comedy half of FX’s recent split) they have released some new trailers, and unlike last time, now they are actually showing some footage from the season.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres it’s 9th season this fall on their new comedy channel FXX, September 4th at 10pm ET/PT. Then after season 10 next year, the gang will be saying “so long bitches” for good! In a not so stunning move Glenn Howerton has announced that the show doesn’t want to overstay it’s welcome so they’re going to end on their terms. Read more below from IGN:
“There’s a certain point where you wear out your welcome and we don’t want to do that,” the actor/writer/producer said. “We want to leave them wanting more. We spend a lot of time trying to find new lines to cross. We’re not trying to offend people or gross them out, but we’re looking to surprise them. I think we’re proud of what we’ve done so far, so it’s time to stop.”
I’m glad Howerton is saying it because in my opinion the show has become a bit stale, even though I’ll always love it. I long for the earlier seasons when all of the characters weren’t so over the top.
But in the show’s defense the subsequent seasons have been pretty entertaining. From Kitten “Mittons” to Dance Marathons and Project Bad Ass to Thundergun Express, the show will definitely be missed. It is better for it to end before the fans decide to stop watching. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is a great show to have leading the charge on the network’s newest efforts at gaining viewership with FXX. The network has triumphed time and again, and not only with comedies, but dramas like The Shield, Justified, Rescue Me, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story and Nip/Tuck just to name a few.
Once It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia goes away, comedies such as Archer, Louie, The League and Wilfred will have to pick up the slack, which they are more than capable of doing. As the show reaches closer to it’s inevitable conclusion, what are everyone’s favorite episodes with so many to choose from?
You know Grizzly Bomb will be doing a top ten best episodes once the show has it’s series finale.
As the 9th season of the Always Sunny approaches, along with the shows move to the new FXX branch off, they’ve started releasing the first promotional stuff. Namely a series of trailers teasing the channel switch…in Swedish. FX had pulled them all from YouTube last week, but now King Angus has compiled them all into one video.
Howdy howdy! This here is a good ol’ fashioned TV News Roundup where we the good folk of Grizzly Bomb scour the big bad internets machine on the look-out for the news you need and gosh darn just want.
And that’s about as far as I’m taking that.
Hokey fake cowboy talk aside, this really is a TV News Roundup where we’ll scour the latest TV news and compile it for you in one easy to read place, no need to wade through countless photos of a Kardashian or Justin Bieber here!
Okay, now that title might be a bit of a freak out. Community isn’t necessarily in danger of being cancelled, but it certainly is in danger of losing Chevy Chase, who plays Pierce Hawthorne on the show. Some problems have arisen between Chase and Dan Harmon, who created and executive produces Community. Little known fact, he also wrote some of Scud: The Disposable Assassin, which has nothing to do with any of this. Anyways, lets get to what went down.
This week the gang gets out of Philly and heads to America’s most famous shoreline – Jersey. Inspired by talk of a childhood trip (sparked by Frank burning family photos) Dennis and Dee convince the gang to road trip it to the boardwalk and while they end up not having the greatest of times, Frank, Mac, and Charlie all manage to make the trip worthwhile.
When someone pukes fake blood all over a woman in the back of a limo, and that isn’t the most outrageous moment of the episode, it has to be Always Sunny. The gang is back and they’re as big as ever – mostly because Mac got fat. But it’s just nice to have our favorite bar owners back…
Last Thursday, during Louie, FX aired a new promo for the upcoming season of Always Sunny and I loved it. I wanted to post it then, but couldn’t find it at the time. Now I have. Soak it up, this is dramatic…
Cable’s best comedy returns to FX on September 15th. Thank God.
We’ve talked about The Knight of Badassdom before, but didn’t have much info. Now, thanks to Comic Con, we’ve got a Knights of Badassdom trailer. And we’re gonna show you the trailer, but let me first talk a little bit about what could be my favorite film cast ever. Ever.
Tyrion Lannister, Jason Stackhouse, and Steve Zahn are roommates, (Awesome already right?) and Stackhouse has just been through a rough breakup. So to cheer him up, his buddies do what all movie-land friends do – they kidnap him and take him somewhere to raise his spirits.
Only in this case, that somewhere is a LARP game. Once there, they encounter Liam McPoyle, Abed Nadir, and Summer Glau. Sounds good to me.
Now what that means is that in one paragraph, I’ve already tied this movie to Game of Thrones, True Blood, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Community. And I didn’t even mention W. Earl Brown (Deadwood, Justified), Joshua Malina (Sports Night), and Larry Zerner (Friday the 13th Part III) whose character ‘Shelly’ is famous for supplying Jason Voorhees with his hockey mask. And now, his name in KoB will also be ‘Shelly’…
Anyhow, here’s the Knights of Badassdom trailer:
In addition, we also have some interviews from Comic Con…
The first one with Entertainment Weekly, which feature both Margarita Levieva (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Michael Gladis (Mad Men) whom I for some reason had not already mentioned, along with may of the aforementioned actors and Director Joe Lynch.
And the 2nd, longer interview, for G4TV is just Lynch and Summer Glau…
