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 nine seasons. It has been renewed for a tenth season, which will air in January 2015. The show has also been renewed for an 11th and 12th season. It became the longest running live-action comedy series on basic cable 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
