The Gang (2)

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (also known as It's Always Sunny, Always Sunny or just Sunny) is an American television sitcom which premiered on FX on August 4, 2005. The series was created and developed by Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day, who also star in the show. The series follows the exploits of "The Gang", a group of self-centered friends who run Paddy's Pub, a relatively unsuccessful Irish bar in South Philadelphia.

The show has aired on FX for eight seasons. It has been renewed for a ninth season, and FX President John Landgraff has stated that there is a "high liklihood" that it will be picked up for a tenth season, and even beyond that. Even if it is not picked up for a tenth season, it will become the longest running live-action comedy series on basic cable ever by the end of its 9th season.

In the intro of the show names of the actors appear in the order of their birthdays (that's might be also qualified as an alphabetical order of their second names -- except for Danny DeVito, who gets special billing after others):

  • Charlie Day - February 9, 1976
  • Glenn Howerton - April 13, 1976
  • Rob McElhenney - April 14, 1977
  • Kaitlin Olson - August 18, 1975
  • Danny DeVito - November 17, 1944
