PADDY'S PUB OPENING DAY NEWS

... It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League will both premiere on September 4, with Sweet Dee, Charlie, Mac, and Dennis debuting their ninth season at 10pm and the fantasy football guys following at 10:30pm. Additionally, late-night talk-show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell premieres at 11pm. But don't go looking for any of the three series on FX! They're all moving to new channel FXX, which is like FX but just a little more hardcore, I guess. FXX replaces Fox Soccer and makes its own debut on September 2. Check your local listings to find the channel or just keep flipping around until you see something you recognize. [FXX via press release]


BUSINESS TIME

... The expulsion of a human being from Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's midsection has NBC all in a tizzy, so much so that tonight, the network will bump fake-reality show Siberia in favor of a one-hour news special called A Little Prince. Meanwhile, ABC will air a Barbara Walters special called The Royal Baby: Heir to the Throne, but the Alphabet's crime against America isn't as bad because all it's shafting is a Body of Proof repeat. [TV Line]

... Syfy is looking to adapt the Terry Gilliam flick 12 Monkeys. Currently, they network is looking at a 90-minute pilot with an eye on a series, which is basically how Battlestar Galactica made it to television. In the movie, which itself was an adaptation of a French short film, Bruce Willis starred as a post-apocalyptic prisoner who time-travels to get information on the virus that decimated the planet. Great movie, but I'm not sure how it will work as a series. What do you think? [THR]

... TLC has put a premiere date on Surviving the In-Laws, a "loosely scripted" series detailing true stories of in-law nightmares. Back-to-back episodes will air on Tuesday, July 31 at 10pm. That will be followed by God's swift wrath as he gives up on humans completely and strikes us all down with lightning. [TLC via press release]

... BBC America is co-producing the new series Atlantis, a fantasy drama set in the world of Greek mythology. It will star Mark Addy (Game of Thrones' Robert Baratheon) and premiere this fall. [BBC America via press release]

... Sundance Channel is planning to re-air Top of the Lake, which recently pulled in eight Emmy nominations, on July 28 starting at 1pm. The seven-episode miniseries starring Elisabeth Moss as a detective who's investigating a crime in Australia will conclude at 8pm. Also getting another go is the miniseries Restless, itself a recipient of two Emmy nominations, on July 31 starting at 8pm. Restless follows a daughter who learns her mother worked as a spy in World War II. [Sundance Channel via press release]


CASTING NEWS

... This is sorta like casting, right? Nate Silver, the statistician and psychic who predicts all sorts of things from sports outcomes to presidential elections, is joining ESPN. Silver's FiveThirtyEight.com will switch homes from The New York Times to ESPN.com, where it will look similar to another ESPN blog, Grantland. Silver will also appear on ESPN's broadcasts, but we don't know in what capacity. Hooray, nerds! [Variety]
