FX stays Sunny, Nippy

Fox's second day of presentations at the TCA press tour handed the floor over to FX, the major network's basic-cable outlet, and there was major news on a pair of the channel's biggest shows.

Drama Nip/Tuck has been given a finite run time, and will stop sucking fat, slimming noses, and injecting botox in 2011, according to TVWeek. FX president John Landgraf made the announcement today, and he said that the series from Ryan Murphy will end its run after an even 100 episodes.

Season five of Nip/Tuck is set to debut early next year, and Landgraf promised that Murphy, who just saw his new show Pretty Handsome passed over, will stay on until the end.

Awesome news for fans of "Seinfeld on crack" It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season four returns on September 18 with 13 episodes. But that's not all; FX has ordered an additional 39 episodes on top of those, and by our count, that's three more 13-episode seasons of Charlie, Mac, Dennis, and Sweet Dee. Day man!

The network also picked up the comedy Testees, from Kenny Hotz (Kenny vs. Spenny). Landgraf teased the show as a comedy about two friends who make a living as medical test subjects.

yay! great news for ISIP fans! I'm also happy to read that they gave Nip/Tuck a deadline, the show lost a bit of his magic in last season.

"Seinfeld on crack"



Have you actually seen anyone on crack? Are you assuming that the show just sits in a corner drooling out a bit of sick, murmuring away as they try and light up a crack pipe made out of a rubber hose and foil?!

Slim324k three more seasons of Always Sunny not Nip/Tuck. (must be that horrible cowboys star in your profile) Lets go Eagles! anyway Nip Tuck has 8 more episodes left this year and a 19 episode final season. My problem is stretching the 27 episodes left over three more years. Too long. Just show the 8 episodes in early 09 and the remaining episodes in fall of 09

I'm still a bit upset that they passed over Pretty Handsome. The news that Nip/Tuck and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are coming back for multiple seasons makes up for it though. :D
