I’ve been waiting all week to catch those new FX comedies “Starved” & “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” since I saw the commercials on Sunday. Both shows feature the lives of a group of four friends.

Starved deals with four friends who all have severe eating disorders, and who all go to the same support group together. I can’t really put my finger on this show…lots of laughs, but really f-ed up, especially as we watch Sam’s sexual compulsions in action. The scene with the mini-scale at the diner is an instant classic. Oh, and I can totally relate when it comes to the Nemo cakes.

Philly looks to be a really, really good show. Here, we look at the mis-adventures of three buddies who co-own an Irish pub in Philly and the female bartender, Sweet Dee, who works there. The debut was non-stop laughs – the show seems to take the fail-safe “wacky misunderstandings” route. Lots of wit. I highly recommend this one.

Anybody else catch these shows?

I wanted to, but was in transit to Phoenix last night.

Any idea if they'll get a replay before next week's episodes?

I didn't see either show but a comedy about eating disorders just sounds hilarous.

I will guess that it's whatever day is 8/4, since the subject of the thread contains that date. See also post #3 in this thread. OR check http://www.fxnetworks.com/?page=schedule . Or Google it. Or call us up and we'll come over to your house and press the keys on your keyboard for you.

Doesn't sound like the debut ratings were that impressive:
