Check out excerpts that highlight some of the stand-out points of the interview, and listen to the audio for the full conversation: CHARLIE DAY: We did so much baby stuff last year that we weren’t going to deal with the baby thing at all, and then we thought it would be funny to put the baby thing to rest, once and for all, with a baby funeral.
Mc Elhenney was contracted as It's Always Sunnys showrunner.
We didn’t want to just do something where they just decide to throw a kids’ pageant because that’s fucking ridiculous. HOWERTON: The challenge is not coming up with concepts or ideas for what these characters can get into.
The challenge is always building a good story around it and grounding it, in its own way. HOWERTON: One of my biggest pet peeves is that I just don’t like it when characters do things that are funny to the writer, but you don’t know why they’re doing it and it doesn’t make any sense.
Mc Elhenney claims that 50 weeks of each year are consumed by acting, producing, and writing for the show, but he did find time to appear in the third season of Lost in the episode "Not in Portland".
This was a result of Mc Elhenney meeting Lost co-creator and executive producer Damon Lindelof, who is a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
