The premiere episode of Sunny ranked #1 in basic cable Thursday night in delivery of Adults 18-34 with 1.3 million viewers in that demo, a remarkable +140% increase from last season's premiere (527,000) and its 1.8 million Adults 18-49 ranked #2 for the night in basic cable.

FX aired episode two at 10:30 PM which also posted massive gains versus prior year, drawing 1.86 million total viewers (+20%), 1.41 million Adults 18-49 (+45%) and 1.03 million Adults 18-34 (+95%).

Both episodes far surpassed Sunny's previously highest rated episode, the season 2 premiere which drew 1.7 million total viewers and 1.0 million Adults 18-49 (Live+7 Nielsen data). Last season, 10 first-run episodes of the series averaged 1.3 million total viewers and 902,000 Adults 18-49 (Live+7 Nielsen data).

For the 10-11 PM time period, the first two episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia averaged 2.1 million total viewers and 1.6 million Adults 18-49, respective increases of +127% in total viewers and +181% in Adults 18-49 vs. the time period on Thursdays for September 2006.

Produced by FX Productions, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia features Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito), five ne'er-do-wells who own and operate Paddy's Pub in Philadelphia. Their constant scheming to get ahead by not-so-redeemable methods usually lands them in a world of hurt, yet they never seem to learn from their mistakes.
