The premiere episode of Sunny ranked #1 in basic cable Thursday night in delivery of Adults 18-34 with 1.3 million viewers in that demo, a remarkable +140% increase from last season's premiere (527,000) and its 1.8 million Adults 18-49 ranked #2 for the night in basic cable.

FX aired episode two at 10:30 PM which also posted massive gains versus prior year, drawing 1.86 million total viewers (+20%), 1.41 million Adults 18-49 (+45%) and 1.03 million Adults 18-34 (+95%).

Both episodes far surpassed Sunny's previously highest rated episode, the season 2 premiere which drew 1.7 million total viewers and 1.0 million Adults 18-49 (Live+7 Nielsen data). Last season, 10 first-run episodes of the series averaged 1.3 million total viewers and 902,000 Adults 18-49 (Live+7 Nielsen data).

For the 10-11 PM time period, the first two episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia averaged 2.1 million total viewers and 1.6 million Adults 18-49, respective increases of +127% in total viewers and +181% in Adults 18-49 vs. the time period on Thursdays for September 2006.

FX will air two all new episodes next Thursday, September 20 � "Dennis & Dee's Mom is Dead," and "The Gang Gets Held Hostage" � at 10 & 10:30PM, respectively. Produced by FX Productions, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia features Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito), five ne'er-do-wells who own and operate Paddy's Pub in Philadelphia. Their constant scheming to get ahead by not-so-redeemable methods usually lands them in a world of hurt, yet they never seem to learn from their mistakes.
