    I love Philadelphia!!!! Can’t wait!

  • sam

    this is the worst decision. does FX really have that many shows it needs to stretch across two networks?? thank god i can watch 5 year old action movies on yet another channel

  • Igwell

    does FX really have that many shows it needs to stretch across two networks

    Kinda. FX will have more than 20 shows by the end of the year. AMC has like seven.

  • John

    They’re really placing Its Always Sunny against their own American Horror Story? Really bad decision considering how popular both shows are. They will eat away at each other’s audience.

  • Tyson

    Turner has TBS for comedy and TNT for drama. Each network has some sports and a little reality. The main thrust for each network is clear though.

    Fox is trying for the same thing with FX and FXX although getting there will take some time. Speed becomes Fox Sports 1 next month. Fox Soccer will be officially rebranded FXX on Labor Day. The best programming from the two channels will be on FS1.
