It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
At the FX upfront programming presentation Thursday, network chief John Landgraf officially announced plans to launch a new, younger-skewing network called FXX in September.
Fall TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?
The new network joins FX and FXM (formerly the Fox Movie Channel) in Fox Cable Networks' suite of channels and will officially launch on Sept. 2. The channel, which Landgraf says will target adults 18-to-34 who love "outrageous characters" and "big laughs," will be bolstered by existing FX comedies It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit, all of which will now air on the new channel. (In making the announcement, Landgraf officially ordered a second season of Legit, a 10th season of Always Sunny, and a fifth and sixth season of The League).

On Tuesday's episode of Lost, Hurley has a job to do — what exactly is unclear. It's hard not to trust that he's in the right though, because as the episode title says, everybody loves Hugo. Let us watch, then, as Hurley, with the help of a dead Michael and a sideways Libby, sets his course, answers one of the island's biggest mysteries, confronts UnLocke and generally gets his groove back.

Bernie Mac by Carin Baer/Fox
Following a fierce bidding war, Starting Under a comedy from Drew Carey Show creator Bruce Helford and starring Bernie Mac as an opinionated divorcé who lives with (and works for!) his introverted twentysomething son became the last major pilot to get rubber-stamped, by Fox, before the strike struck, Variety reports. But... what about "Ocean's Eighteen"?! A&E has shot a pilot for Celebrity called Garage Sale (yes, it's come to this), in which indie actress Illeana Douglas helps her celeb pals unload unwanted junk. Freaks and Geeks cocreator Paul Feig will direct the pilot for NBC's Kath & Kim, starring Molly Shannon.
