FX sets premiere dates for 'Anarchy' and 'Sunny'
The network will have at least four original programs, but one hasn't been announced yet and another, "Nip/Tuck," doesn't have a date yet.
What the network is ready to declare are the premiere dates for "Sons of Anarchy" (on a new night, Tuesdays at 10 p.m. starting Sept. 8 for 13 episodes) and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting Sept. 17 for 12 episodes).
The sixth and penultimate season of "Nip/Tuck" will debut sometime in October and FX also plans to pair another as-yet-unannounced comedy with "Sunny."
As usual, FX is adopting a No Fear approach to its lineup, scheduling shows to debut while broadcast is at the bullhorn. This approach has worked in the past, with "Tuck" previously having managed to grow year-over-year despite launching during the fall.
