10th season, new network for 'Sunny'

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the sitcom created by (and co-starring) St. Joe's Prep grad Rob McElhenney, has been renewed for a 10th season, FX announced Thursday. With the ninth season scheduled to premiere this fall, that takes the show through the fall of 2014. But instead of remaining where it is, "Sunny," along with "The League," "Legit" and "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," will be used starting this fall to help launch a new spinoff network, FXX, aimed at 18- to 34-year-olds.

10th season, new network for 'Sunny'

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the sitcom created by (and co-starring) St. Joe's Prep grad Rob McElhenney, has been renewed for a 10th season,  FX announced Thursday.

With the ninth season scheduled to premiere this fall, that takes the show through the fall of 2014.

But instead of remaining where it is, "Sunny," along with "The League," "Legit" and "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," will be used starting this fall to help launch a new spinoff network, FXX, aimed at 18- to 34-year-olds.

FX, where "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" launched in 2005, is available in 98 million homes. The network estimates FXX -- how long before it stops looking like a typo? -- will be in 74 million homes in its first year, "making it one of the most widely distributed entertainment networks ever for an ad-supported cable network in its inaugural year."

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
