Kaitlin Olson, who plays Sweet Dee on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, is easily the most underrated player of the ensemble that boasts breakout star Charlie Day and Danny DeVito. Having proved her comedic chops and sharp wit for 11 seasons of the FXX series, she’s stepping out on her own with The Mick on Fox, playing an irresponsible grifter left in charge of her wealthy niece and nephews. But It’s Always Sunny fans shouldn’t worry about Olson breaking up the gang -- she is pulling double duty, starring on both.
The Mick, which premiered Jan. 1, will air in its regular time slot of Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox starting Jan. 3. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 premieres Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 10 p.m. ET on FXX.
All will be revealed when Nashville -- previously on ABC for four seasons -- returns on CMT. What happened to Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) after that massive cliffhanger at the end of season four? The question will be answered early in the two-hour premiere, the first hour of which is now streaming on Hulu. While resurrecting a show following a major plane crash and network change may seem like a big challenge, new co-showrunner Marshall Herskovitz tells ET it was an opportunity. “There was a lot of great stuff to work with,” he says.
Nashville premieres with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
