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.
