Tonight on FX: Using Abortion to Pick Up Chicks

While it should be a new low in television entertainment, it probably isn't. On tonight's (Thursday) episode of the FX cable network's sit-com, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, we'll see this, as described by the show's Web site: “Mac becomes more serious about pro-life causes when he realizes his passion for this viewpoint might get him laid. Dennis sinks to an equally low level as he uses an abortion rally as a forum for meeting chicks.”

The full summary of the August 11 episode, titled “Charlie Wants an Abortion,” as listed on the FX Web site: “Charlie is skeptical and nervous when a girl from his past reveals that he is the father of their child. Though their time spent together is initially disastrous, Charlie finds an unexpected perk in acting as the brat's father. Meanwhile, Mac becomes more serious about pro-life causes when he realizes his passion for this viewpoint might get him laid. Dennis sinks to an equally low level as he uses an abortion rally as a forum for meeting chicks.”This will be the second episode for the new weekly Thursday night at 10:30pm EDT sit-com centered around a Philadelphia bar.
