It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
In Paddy's Pub's five years of business, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has spawned everything from a major sports arena staple (Greenman) to a nationwide musical tour (The Nightman Cometh). With Season 6 around the corner, the question now is: What will the series' hardcore fans latch onto next?
"We never really know what's going to catch on. We wound up watching that Nightman episode from Season 4 and not really thinking it worked so well and then it just kind of took off," creator, executive producer and star Rob McElhenney tells TVGuide.com. "I had to talk Charlie [Day] into doing the ...

Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman
There's no crying in outlaw biker gangs, right?
As Sons of Anarchy roars back for its third season, the leather-clad, gun-running testosterone that has fueled the series takes a bit of a backseat to resolving last season's cliff-hanger: the abduction of Jax's infant son, Abel.
Returning fall shows: Where we left off
"I just wanted to begin the season showing the emotional devastation of that," creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter tells TVGuide.com. "Even though these guys navigate in a fairly dangerous world, ultimately what happened to Jax is not in the outlaw handbook."

Tolan says Tierney, who will appear with what he calls a "buzz cut," even helped fine-tune the story.
"We wrote like dopes. We haven't had cancer, and we wrote stuff that was a touch melodramatic perhaps," Tolan says...
