    As comedy it's hit-and-miss; what sells the show are the in-between things, the nonsense sibling spats between Dennis and Dee, the way Charlie's voice rises as his anxiety level does, the loose play of the banter. But if giving DeVito a prominent role will up the attendance, it doesn't immediately up the comedy. [28 Jun 2006]

    The three episodes of the new season that I've seen are almost entirely flat. [29 Jun 2006]

    Recruiting Danny DeVito to play the estranged dad to half the show's central quartet might have seemed like a good idea, but the result is a more uneven and mean-spirited show that overreaches and forces some gags. [29 Jun 2006]

    Returning for an improved second season It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia sees the introduction of Danny de Vito as a regular cast member. HisReturning for an improved second season It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia sees the introduction of Danny de Vito as a regular cast member. His presence certainly adds to the show but more significant is the increased consistency in the writing and characters behaviour meaning that, while it is still happy to deal with original subjects, there are far more laughs per episode.

    If you thought Seinfeld and friends were selfish and self-centred you haven’t seen nothing yet.
