In Mad Love, two characters who hate each other learn that they hooked up at a costume party several years ago. The guy in this equation was dressed in a generic lone ranger costume he referred to as "Viggo Mortensen".
In It's Always Sunny, three of the main characters try to piece together the events that took place at a costume party last year, where they may have hooked up with Dee despite the fact that they hate each other (also one of them is her brother). One of these guys was dressed in a generic lone ranger costume he referred to as "Viggeo Morgenstain" (how he thought you pronounce the name Viggo Mortensen). Plagiarism! Plagiarism I say!
Anyway, carry on.

Gaining 60 pounds for a sitcom! That's called COMMITTED. Or CRAZY. One of those. In either case, it'll be glorious to watch.

Elijah Wood starrer Wilfred, which has become the highest-rared first season comedy on the network with a cumulative 5 million viewers a week, has been picked up a second season of 13 episodes. Louie, which just landed an Emmy nomination for star Louis CK and has averaged 3 million viewers a week, has been renewed for a third season of 13 episodes. Meanwhile, veteran It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been renewed for 2 more seasons - Seasons 8 and 9 - to become the longest running live-action comedy on basic cable. The network also has an option for a 10th season. Additionally, FX Prods. has signed a three-year exclusive deal with RCG, the production company of the Sunny masterminds, Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. I hear the deal is worth $40 million-$50 million dollars for all services. FX and FX Prods. and RCG reinvented the production model for television comedies, embracing low-cost production model and taking less money up front," FX president Landgraf said. In addition to Sunny, RCG is involved in the new CBS comedy series How To Be a Gentleman, created by and starring Sunny player David Hornsby, and has 2 comedy projects in the works, Fox's Living Loaded and FX's animated Townies.
Overall, Landgraf said the goal is to have 5 dramas and 7 comedies on the air. The network has 5 comedies on now, all in FX's signature, lower-budget mold, and "we are going to add a couple more over time," he said. In the past several months, there has been "really strong focus on drama with pilots American Horror Story, Powers and Outlaw Country," Landgraf said. "We had never made 3 drama pilots simultaneously," he said. American Horror Story has already been picked up to series. The other 2 pilots have been completed, and Landgraf expects to make a decision on them within the next 2-3 months, with a pickup of one, both or none all possible.
In other announcements, Rodgers Media and FX Networks have formed a joint venture to launch a new channel, FX Canada, in early November.

Perhaps in an alternate reality Chris Pratt would have waited for Jurrasic World to become a household name and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Glenn Howerton would have ascended to the next level of fame as Star-Lord in Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy.
