It's Always Sunny on MTV2; Conan to Air from Comic-Con Again

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

It's time again for the Viacom networks shuffle! It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be starting on MTV2 today and will air weekdays starting at 1pm in a four-episode block. The hit series sometimes called "Seinfeld on crack" was airing on Comedy Central, but now sister network MTV2 will be airing it. Mac, Dennis, Charlie & Sweet Dee are four dysfunctional friends with an Irish pub in Philadelphia. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia joins other sitcoms on MTV2 such as The Jamie Foxx Show, My Wife & Kids, Everybody Hates Chris, The Wayans Bros., Martin, The PJ's and Saved by the Bell. The network also airs Boy Meets World from time to time, but that series has been a regular on sister network TeenNick since April, and they air the series weeknights at 9pm. Back to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the series is still airing in originals and going strong and has been renewed for seasons 13 and 14 on FXX. And season 12 will air later this coming season, probably in early 2017.
