‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Eviscerates Manipulative Sitcoms Like ‘Fuller House’ By Making One of Their Own

18 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day have never been afraid to get a little meta with “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” From “The Gang Recycles Their Trash” (in which plot points from previous episodes were repurposed) to “The Gang Misses the Boat” (a Season 10 episode where the people of Paddy’s Pub decide they’ve drifted too far from their roots), episodes crop up where the “It’s Always Sunny” gang is doing more than comment on society: They’re talking about themselves.

What could come across as unappealingly egocentric is instead charmingly apt considering “Sunny” is all about selfish assholes, and the topic of this week’s episode channels such narcissistic villainy toward a new purpose: highlighting the difference between half-hour comedies and manipulative sitcoms. Similar to the brilliant deconstruction of classic sitcom structuring in “The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award” (the lighting! the romantic pairings! »

Fox TV CEO Dana Walden Talks Drama Prospects, ‘Empire’ and Comedy Challenges

11 January 2017 7:29 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s been a bumpy fall for Fox Broadcasting Co., with rave reviews but weak ratings for its newcomer “Pitch,” a string of unavoidable preemptions for tentpole “Empire” and challenges in bringing younger viewers to linear screens for live-action comedies. On the plus side, frosh drama “Lethal Weapon” has lived up to expectations, the network hosted a once-in-a-generation World Series and is looking forward to the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

Dana Walden, who is Fox Television Group chairman-ceo alongside Gary Newman, spoke of the hurdles and opportunities faced so far this season in an interview Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena.

Walden stressed that Fox is gearing up for a super-charged second half that hopefully will restock the network’s drama bench. “24: Legacy” launches behind the Super Bowl and another high-octane drama, “Apb” bowing the following night. The provocative “Shots Fired” bows March 22 in tandem with the midseason return of “Empire.” And »

Performer of the Week: Kaitlin Olson

7 January 2017 7:40 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Kaitlin Olson

The Show | The Mick

The Episode | “Pilot” (Jan. 1, 2017)

The Performance | Mere hours into the new year, we already witnessed 2017’s first breakout performance.

As Mackenzie Murphy, the titular trainwreck who is suddenly put in charge of her rich sister’s snobby kids in Fox’s freshman comedy, Olson has the formidable task of acting crass, lazy and wholly irresponsible — while also getting us to like her.

Fortunately, we were hooked 30 seconds into Sunday’s series opener, when Mackenzie dumped baby powder down her pants in the middle of the grocery store.

Golden Globes TV Predictions 2017: Bold Picks in Every Category

Best Drama Series

Nominees:

The Crown” (Netflix)

Game of Thrones” (HBO)

Stranger Things” (Netflix)

This Is Us” (NBC)

Westworld” (HBO)

Will Win: “The Crown

Could Win: “This Is Us

Should Win: “The Crown

A new champion will be crowned, and we’re betting on Netflix royalty. After the 2016 winner, “Mr. Robot,” missed the cut in 2017, the doors were thrown open, as four freshman dramas stepped in for their shot at Best Drama Series. The two HBO entries may split the vote, considering they appeal to an identical demographic, and “This Is Us” feels a bit too sentimental for the dark taste of the HFPA. Though “Stranger Things” has the buzz, Netflix made “The Crown” to bring home the gold. So odds are the network’s weight is behind its prestige period piece.

‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’: Inside The Show’s Creative Process, 12 Seasons Later

6 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” returned this week with one of its most ambitious seasons yet, opening an unprecedented 12th year with “The Gang Turns Black,” an episode in which the gang takes on racial prejudice from a brand new perspective. It’s an storyline that found its most brilliant touches, the creators admitted, after they decided to do the “hard” version of it.

For a full spoiler review of “The Gang Turns Black,” TV Critic Ben Travers has you covered. But IndieWire was also on the “Sunny” set during the episode’s production, speaking with the cast between takes in Paddy’s Bar (a set which star Kaitlin Olson later admitted, after 12 years, feels like home).

Kaitlin Olson Plays TV Double Duty With ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ and ‘The Mick’

5 January 2017 10:20 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” kicked off its twelfth season last night, which means Kaitlin Olson is very busy — not just because she’s been on the Fxx ensemble for 12 seasons, but because she took on another starring role this year, toplining her own comedy series: “The Mick” on Fox.

Though both shows are airing now (“The Mick” on Tuesday nights, and “It’s Always Sunny” on Wednesdays), Olson says juggling two shows is manageable.

“After twelve years, ‘Sunny’ is a pretty well-oiled machine,” Olson tells Variety, explaining that each episode only takes about three days to shoot. Her commitment to the Fxx show spanned over a couple of months in the spring of 2016, before she started shooting her new Fox series. “It worked out really well, timing wise,” she says. “My kids are in preschool during the day now, so I’m ready to take on a fuller schedule.”

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Review: Razor Sharp Season 12 Premiere is Just the Start of a Bold, Brilliant Year

Don’t call it a comeback.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” hasn’t seen a consistent dip in quality for longer than we can remember, but every season, it feels as though the TV world takes Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) a little bit for granted. Perhaps because it comes out at the beginning of the year, seven months before the Emmy nominations hit and a good 11 months prior to the “best of the year” lists. Or maybe it’s just because it’s been on so long that people want to believe they know what’s coming. That they “get it.”

Yet the gang is as eager to disprove the notion as they are proud to embrace the purity of their characters’ perturbed nature. Like the goofy baby brother eager to join the big kids table, “Sunny »

TV Ratings: ‘The Wall’ Boosts NBC, ‘Bones’ Soft in Final Season Premiere

4 January 2017 9:19 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC got the first Tuesday of 2017 off to a good start with a plucky performance at 8 p.m. from new game show “The Wall.” That gave a boost to the rest of the Peacock’s “Chicago” drama lineup.

Meanwhile, the turnout for the final season premiere of Fox’s “Bones” was modest, albeit in line with the show’s previous season averages. New comedy “The Mick” showed some life as the Kaitlin Olson starrer settled into its regular post-“New Girl” time slot following its New Year’s Day premiere behind an NFL double-header.

CBS as usual won the night in viewers thanks to “NCIS” and “Bull.” NBC lead in adults 18-49.

The Wall” opened the night with 6.8 million viewers and 1.7 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen. That marked a significant improvement from its Monday 10 p.m. premiere (1.2, 4.5 million) behind the two-hour opener of “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” The »

Kaitlin Olson in ‘The Mick': Can Tonight’s Premiere Maintain Sunday’s Stellar Preview?

3 January 2017 11:55 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In case you haven’t watched one minute of Fox sports and entertainment programming since the summer, Kaitlin Olson is “The Mick.” The star of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has a new network sitcom and it didn’t exactly have a quiet preview premiere on Sunday. That’s because 1) Fox ran a commercial for it roughly once every seven seconds and 2) A whole lot of you actually watched the episode. “The Mick” delivered a 2.8 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic, actually matching NBC’s “This Is Us” premiere for highest-rated new series debut in Nielsen’s Live + 7 Day rating. »
