Well, it’s time to master that milk steak recipe for your “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia" premiere party. FX has officially announced that the show will begin airing it’s 13th season on Sept. 5. Last season, it was revealed that Dennis fathered a child with a woman named Mandy. When his lies backfire, she decides to leave and takes their son with her. Dennis decides to go after them to North Dakota to be with his son. This departure left many fans wondering if Glenn Howerton is leaving the show for good, but considering Howerton is a writer for the show, that hasn't been the case. Yet it’s still a bit unclear if Dennis will be returning to the gang. Back in April, co-star Kaitlin Olsen told TheWrap that Howerton was coming back for a couple of episodes. But shortly thereafter, Howerton denied these claims and stated that Dennis returning was not confirmed for the 13th season. But then, a little over a month later, Charlie Day told TheWrap that … [Read more...] about FX announces ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ 13th season air date

The officials released the man with a long list of violent charges when immigration officers provided a detainer and warrant.

Not since 1975, when John Lennon presented Philadelphia with a weather report, have we had a true, world-historical legend in town to tell us what we already know: It's hot outside. That drought ended Thursday morning, when traveling author and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles appeared on FOX29's Good Day Philadelphia to answer basically the same questions he's been answering endlessly since February — not that anyone minds. ("Can you explain how it felt to catch that touchdown pass on the Philly Special?" "Man, that moment was really special."). To keep things fresh, part of Thursday's appearance involved Foles jumping in front of the green screen. Foles has been making rounds in support of his new memoir, "Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure and Overcoming the Odds," which is already a bestseller on Amazon. … [Read more...] about Eagles’ Nick Foles does the Philadelphia weather report on FOX29
The passage of time in an NBA offseason can make it feel like so many things are happening despite a complete absence of activity. Betting odds for free agency decisions rise and fall based on lightly-sourced reports and intel on where someone is "leaning," and we all pretend that means free agency has been wrapped up by the time the NBA Draft is finished. That's what the mood has been like in Philadelphia, anyway. With Kawhi Leonard's reported preference to play in Los Angeles coloring everyone's perception of the landscape, a lot of Sixers fans (and analysts, to be fair) have written off the team as a potential suitor for the big names this offseason. If the Lakers get the first star to commit, it could create a domino effect that prompts the likes of Paul George or LeBron James to take their talents to the West Coast. Failing that, the stars staying with their respective teams would also work against Philadelphia, obviously. These are outcomes the Sixers absolutely have to prepare … [Read more...] about Is Sixers’ offseason a failure if they don’t lure a star to Philadelphia?
