If getting through the summer TV season was like a marathon, we’d now be at the point where we’ve already had our second wind (Breaking Bad) and are within mere yards from the finish line, but can’t possibly imagine how we’re going to get there. We’re panting, moaning, muttering out curses to various deities and non-deities alike, practically crawling on the ground, but not giving up because we’re SO. CLOSE. to finishing, or to end this terrible metaphor, getting our good shows back. Which is to say: with few exceptions, TV blows right now.
Hopefully this bit of news, a NUGGET if you will, can provide you with your third wind.
The eighth season of It’s Always Sunny will begin Thursday, October 11 at 10 p.m., followed at 10:30 by the fourth season of The League, and a revamped version of BrandX with Russell Brand at 11.
The new season of American Horror Story — which is technically called American Horror Story: Asylum, as part of this farce to keep each season of the show qualified as a miniseries for Emmy purposes — will premiere on Wednesday, October 17 at 10 p.m. (Via)
That is most excellent news. Seeing those anime It’s Always Sunny promos is 99% of the reason why I’ve watched Date Night on FX approximately five times over the past two weeks. Take it away, Charlie.
