nip/tuck Season 6 Premieres Oct 14

My advice is not to get your hopes set too high for this next-to-last season of our favorite plastic surgery romp. We only get ten episodes since FX decided in their infinite wisdom that it would be best to split the final episodes into two seasons with a series finale holding until 2011.

While I know we’ll get some classic crazy surgical procedures, I have a strong feeling that these ten episodes will simply set the stage for the final run that is still over one year away, despite all footage already being in the can. It’s interesting that creator Ryan Murphy’s new effort, Glee, could be finishing it’s second season by the time nip/tuck finishes its run.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Returns in September


I’ll update this post once there is an official date [UPDATE – It’s September 17th!], but I had to share my excitement from seeing the teaser for a September return of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Based on previous press releases, we already know season five will include 13 episodes, and I just found out that two future (season 6?) Christmas-themed episodes will be released to DVD early.

Until then, here’s a bonus from last year’s season four finale to tide you over.
