Let's start off with some good news.  Season 9 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will debut on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 10/9c. The League's fifth season premiere will follow at 10:30/9:30c. Totally Biased kicks off its five-night-a-week run that Wednesday at 11/10c.

At their Comic-Con panel on Sunday, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Damian Holbrook, It's Always Sunny's cast and creative team teased an upcoming Lethal Weapon 6 episode and revealed new details about the episode written by Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, called "Flowers for Charlie." "It's kind of like Limitless where I'm talking a pill to be more smarter," Charlie Day said.

Brian Urlacher is the newest addition to the talent roster at FS1.  He'll join former NFL QB Donovan McNabb, NBA Hall of Famer Gary Payton and tennis legend Andy Roddick.  The future Hall of Famer Urlacher is an interesting addition to the net as he's not the gregarious personality they might be looking for, but a big name nonetheless.

Shame on you ABC.  Not only do you continue to burn off primetime hours with crap like "The Bachelors Tell All," but you've decided to turn the Bachelorette  finale into a 2-part 4-hour tear fest?  Please put us out of our misery already.

Thank you IFC.  The network announced "the renewal of the critically acclaimed comedy series Maron for a second season with 13 all new half-hour episodes, up from 10, scheduled to premiere in 2014.

“In many ways, Marc is a perfect representation of IFC and our approach to comedy,” saidJennifer Caserta, president and general manager of IFC. “He also seems to be in need of a less dysfunctional family, so we’re happy he’s returning to ours for an expanded second season.”

Maron conducted a great interview with Jonah Hill on his WTF  podcast.  If you're interested, you can listen here.
