Wednesday TV: ‘It’s Always Sunny’s 13th

always-sunnyIt’s remarkable that the raucous “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (FXX, 10 p.m.) has reached its 13th season. Next year it will tie “Ozzie & Harriet” as TV’s longest running live action sitcom. But it doesn’t come without change. Mindy Kaling guest stars as a new member of the gang, who wants to organize projects to make the bar more successful, but it’s hard working with the famously dim gang, now down a member now that Dennis is gone – Glenn Howerton is working on his network sitcom “A.P. Bio” and will only occasionally appear this season. Tonight, he is replaced by a sex doll.

There have been some other changes. Rob McElhenny’s character, who famously spent season seven fat, is now overly buff and has fully come out of the closet last season. But the show still is full of surprise, as in the upcoming episode when Mac comes out to his dad. Also upcoming, an all female reboot of one of the most beloved episodes, trying to break Wade Boggs’ record of beer drinking on a coast to coast flight, en route to a women’s march.
