‘Sunny’ Future For FX

Oct 6, 2005  •  Post A Comment

FX has renewed its freshman comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the network confirmed Thursday.

The ensemble series was one of two original comedies launched by the Fox Cable Networks-owned channel this summer. The other, the eating disorder comedy “Starved,” has not been renewed.

Both shows averaged about a 0.9 — less than the average viewership of FX’s popular dramas — and divided critics. As its name implies, “Sunny” was the more upbeat of the two programs and featured a younger cast.

A renewal decision has not yet been made on FX’s Iraq war drama “Over There,” according to a spokesperson.
