Family Guy has recruited two familiar TV voices for an upcoming episode, and those voices belong to Maya Rudolph and Glenn Howerton. Rudolph, a veteran of SNL and Up All Night, will assume the role of an avid runner who catches Brian’s eye. To win her over, he pretends to be a fellow jogger. “After Brian experiences the ‘runner’s high’, he becomes a distance running douche, and even signs himself up to run a marathon,” Family Guy executive producer Steve Callaghan tells EW.

FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is on track to become cable’s longest-running comedy, and is set to tent-pole the launch of a whole new channel next month with its ninth season premiere (FX’s comedy focused spin-off channel FXX). Yet the cult-favorite series is perennially snubbed for Golden Globes and Emmys — not only has Sunny never won a major award, it’s also never even been nominated.*
But the cast is going to tackle the issue in an episode this fall titled “The Gang Desperately Tries to Win an Award.” The setup: They realize all the other local bars win awards and so they visit the competition to see what they’re doing “right.” Then they change Paddy’s Pub to try and fit the formula. Naturally, the makeover doesn’t go very well.
When the subject was brought up while the gang was on a press tour panel in Beverly Hills on Friday, there was naturally some riffing about this: READ FULL STORY

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia': Never before seen clip from the hilarious 'Lethal Weapon 5' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are back!!! Only, not really. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fans no doubt remember last season’s genius episode where the gang decided to make their own version of Lethal Weapon 5. Fans also no doubt remember wishing they could see more. Well, now they can! An extended cut of Lethal Weapon 5 will be available on the show’s Season 6 Blu-ray and DVD sets (out on Sept. 13). To whet your appetite, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the cinematic tour de force right here. In it, Mac and Dennis (playing Gibson’s Martin Riggs and Glover’s Roger Murtaugh, respectively — although they would switch roles halfway through the film because that’s how incredible Lethal Weapon 5 is) interrogate a prostitute (played by Artemis) as they struggle to solve the mystery of the tainted tap water. Check it out for yourself in the video player below, but be warned: This is a scene involving a hooker on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, so it’s a pretty good bet there is some slightly NSFW language to be had.

BIG CHANGES COMING TO ‘BEING HUMAN’
Holy cow, Humans! Last night’s penultimate episode of Being Human on Syfy not only included a few nail-biting cliffhangers (Please don’t die, Aidan!), but it also left us on a great note going into the season 1 finale. Lucky for you, Sam Witwer spilled many a secrets about next week’s wicked finale to help ease the pain of the wait.
“There are actually a few cliffhangers, and there are a few provocative questions, primarily with Josh and Aidan,” Witwer says. And some of those new questions are likely to be raised in the flashback scene to two years ago that “explains something that Josh did earlier this season,” Witwer teases. “There’s a vengeful move that Josh does at the urging of [Josh’s jerk were-buddy] Ray. We learn a little bit more about why he did that. And we’re also catching Aidan right as he’s about to pull away from the vampires; he’s already starting to feel quite alone and isolated. So that, more than anything, allows him to identify Josh as someone else who has the same problem.” READ FULL STORY
The latest promo for Fox’s new comedy, Breaking In, which premieres in April and stars Christian Slater as the head of a high-tech security firm that gives clients a sense of security by first ripping it away, is exciting for two reasons: 1) it makes the show look good, and we’re hoping the third time’s a charm for Slater after NBC’s My Own Worst Enemy and ABC’s The Forgotten and 2) that alley looks exactly like the one they use for exteriors on FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. That’s because it is the same one. But don’t get too excited, Sunny fans: We’re told the Breaking In cast begins production today on a different lot. At least Slater should get to keep that swiveling chair. Watch the promo below. READ FULL STORY
