  1. I’m excited for The League to come back, but I’m jumping ship on Anger Management.

  2. Britta Unfiltered says:

    What is the deal with FXX? If you get FX, does that mean as part of your cable package you’ll automatically get FXX? I sure want to be able to watch The League on the nights it airs!

  3. Andy says:

    I ended up Netflix-ing every season of Always Sunny a couple months ago, so I’m definitely looking forward to season 9. I still need to check out season 8 though.

  4. Ryan says:

    Is FXX going to be on DirecTV?

  5. dude says:

    i am confused as well, i would hate to miss Sunny and League if Directv isnt planning on having it.

  6. Sokratis says:

    What about FX?

  7. Joey says:

    Glad they finally announced the premiere dates for It’s Always Sunny and The League. I can’t wait to see the new seasons.

  8. Jack D.Wahl, Jr says:

    My understanding is that DirecTV is going to park FXX at channel 619 currently Fox Soccer Channel.
