TV Junkie: Thursday Night Picks - IASIP
The season 3 premiere of FX's It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is the pick of the night. This is arguably Danny DeVito's best work since L.A. Confidential and his best comedy work in almost 20 years. While it's true that since it's cable the cast can say "shit" and "asshole" but that's not a gimmick the show relies on too much. What the show does follow is what made Seinfeld a success - it's a show about nothing. Instead of a diner, the players hang out in their bar; instead of Newman and his ilk, the nemesis' (nemesiseses?) of our gang is the McPoyles. LAist was lucky enough to preview the first four episodes and can confirm it's going to be the funniest thing on Thursdays.
