Ive been waiting all week to catch those new FX comedies Starved & Its 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 cant really put my finger on this show lots of laughs, but really f-ed up, especially as we watch Sams 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.

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.
I thought they got the guys pretty much right, although I could've done without Stefano getting the wild card. I would've preferred Ginger Brett or Jun, although Brett's entertainment value doesn't have -that- much to do with his singing.
