Trivia

The pilot was created by four Hollywood actors (Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day and Jordan Reid) about struggling as actors in LA. The show was initially titled, "It's Always Sunny on TV". The original, unaired pilot only cost $200 to make and was shot on a digital camera, with the actors taking turns holding the boom. It was then shopped around to different networks and was picked up by FX. They then moved the setting of the show from LA to Philadelphia and re-shot the pilot. See more »

Dennis Reynolds: I think we can do the intervention on our own without her.
Charlie Kelly: Do you guys think?

Crazy Credits

The show's RCH production logo (now RCG) features an image of creators/stars Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Glenn Howerton wearing hoodies and sunglasses. A sound clip plays backwards over the logo. In season 1 the clip says 'You are stupid for playing this forward' when reversed; in season 2 it says 'Is it brown? Is it brown? Good work. Is it brown? Is it brown?'; in season 3 it says 'Make it brown. Make it brown. Make it brown.' each actor chanting the words. See more »

Great
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one of the greatest shows on TV right now. It is daring and hilarious. It was created by three guys on a budget of less than $200, which I find very admirable because I am and aspiring actor/writer. Its raucous stories that run the gamut from cancer to abortion to Nazis to pedophilia are written by the cast. Their devotion to the show is very evident and I hope we will not lose this great show to politics of Hollywood. Heading into is second season I am excited to see what we are going to tackle this summer. I am ready to be shocked and amazed at the lengths these guys and a girl will go to to get over. And with Danny Devito joining the show we are really seeing how "sunny" it is in "Philadelphia"
