Hey Family Fight fans! First of all we’d like to apologize for some of the content that was aired last Wednesday. The remarks and views of the Reynolds family do not in any way represent what Family Fight is about. From the stream of angry e-mails and letters we’ve already received, it’s become apparent that we need to rethink our policies regarding airing every episode.
I assure you, we will never see the Reynolds on Family Fight again. Please watch below for a special message from your friend and host, Grant Anderson:
JD Harmeyer from The Howard Stern Show stopped by this season to guest direct a scene from “The Gang Group Dates”. If you listened to Stern at all when this was going down, you’re probably aware that no one expected JD to pull it off. For that reason, we got to follow JD around and film his big day.
Watch as the cast and crew bring him up to speed on what it takes to be a Sunny director:
Allison Munn was kind enough to sit with us and reflect on her experience shooting tonight’s episode, “The Gang Misses the Boat.” A show like Sunny doesn’t always have a chance to feature sweet, normal folks like Allison. And boy is she normal. I mean, I’m no therapist but I’d say she’s totally got her shit together. Absolutely nothing strange about this lady whatsoever.
I have no idea who this man is or what he’s doing on our official Behind the Scenes channel (click here to subscribe) but I guess the higher-ups approved it. Chalk it up to “right place, right time” for this nobody waiter, as he was able to snag an entire interview here:
Let’s hope this lucky bastard doesn’t let the sudden fame get to his head, or else he’s going to have a tough time remembering that lunch order I left on his voicemail twenty minutes ago.
If you’ve been watching Sunny at all, you’re probably aware of the term “Charlie Work” — but have you actually seen Charlie Work? Well the answer is no, obviously, because tonight is the first time we get a full, uncut view into the Work of Charlie.
Paddy’s is due for its annual health inspection, and it’s up to Charlie to make sure the bar maintains its perfect rating. Will the rest of the gang ruin it all with their side-grifting? That’s where I’m going to leave it. Anything else would be a spoiler and I’m not The Walking Dead’s Facebook so I can’t pull that kind of stuff.
Instead, please enjoy this lovely interview with Jennifer Elise Cox, who you’ll likely recognize as “Gecko Tattoo Girl” from our season ten premiere. She was also in a show that rhymed with “Lady Lunch” but I already blew the budget of this blog post buying the rights to mention Walking Dead’s Facebook. Worth it!
Get yourselves ready for brand new Sunny tonight at 10, only on FXX.
We usually don’t see a lot of luck with these Twitter question videos. It seems something always gets in the way of providing real answers to the fans. Hopefully this time around it’ll be smooth sailing as Rob takes a break from his quantum physics essay concerning fourth dimensional time enhancement to do some standard, no frills, Q&A.
Well there you go. Sorry if we didn’t get to all of your questions, though just to quickly answer most of them right now: “No, The Waitress’ name is not Nikki Potnick” and “No, Pepe Silvia is not supposed to stand for Pennsylvania.” So if either of those answers pertain to your question, just go back and re-read it in your favorite cast member’s voice!
One of the perks of working behind the scenes on a show like Sunny is you get to visit a lot of unique locations. Of course we have all of our standing sets such as Paddy’s, Guigino’s, and other staples that get used over and over. But our crew relishes the opportunity to set up shop in a completely new environment. Take, for example, the dirty abandoned asylum in tonight’s episode, where we caught up with Kaitlin to have her explain just what it means when the Sunny crew goes out on location:
While wrapping up shooting “The Gang Beats Boggs,” the guys took a moment to reflect on the titular man behind the legend: Wade Boggs. It was surprising to see that though his wikipedia page is filled with details of his illustrious baseball career, there seems to be no mention at all of what could possibly his most daring feat: drinking 57 beers on a cross-country flight.
Check the video below for Rob, Charlie and Glenn pondering on Boggs’ immortal liver, plus a special message to anyone who thinks they can beat Boggs in real life:
When Mary Elizabeth Ellis was on set for last week’s episode, we had no idea she was going to drop this bomb on us. You’d be surprised at the amount of effort that goes into protecting this show’s secrets. Like for instance if I leaked that the Frank you see on Sunny is not Danny DeVito, but a realistic android purchased with dick towel money, I’d probably be stripped of my job and taken out.
