    I'm still watching Wilfred but I thought I was going to enjoy it more. It's kinda bland.

    Never heard of "Wilfred" or "Louie", but love "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Glad it is coming back.

    I've never watched any of the three. I don't know why I never gave It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia at least a chance.

    I tried Louie and did not like it. The one with the man-dog is too weird so I never tried it.

    I did, and it didn't stick. I watched 4-5 episodes of the first season and although I thought it was ok, it wasn't enough to hook me.

    I also watched a few episodes of Louie and though I like him as a stand-up, I found the series depressing.

    Tried 2 episodes of Louie and didn't like it. Pretty much same story with Wilfred.

    I love me some Always Sunny. Great news that it has more episodes coming.

    Watch season 4 episode 2 The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis

    If you don't LOVE that episode, you won't like the show, best episode to gauge it on.

    I like Wilfred but don't love it. Some episodes are really funny, and some are just stupid. It's ok as a summer diversion when there aren't many 30 minute shows and I can kill a half hour when I want to. I watched Louie for a couple of episodes and hated it. I did like Louie CKs show on HBO though, so it's not like I don't like him, only the show.

    Always Sunny, I never watched, but I think it might be a show to revisit somewhere down the line either streaming or on DVD/BD. I've seen the last few minutes of a few episodes on Comedy Central before TDS and it looks like it might be funny.

    Glad for all three. None of these are traditional sitcoms.

    Louie is usually poignant and deep. Uncomfortable funny even

    Wilfred, is weird and I'm not sure if having a dog, helps to see the funny or having a warped mind helps me laugh out loud.

    Sunny... a group of worthless individuals, self absorbed, greedy, selfish. This is Seinfeld without a filter

    I have tried a couple of times to give it a chance, just a couple weeks ago as well.. Can't ever get into it, and I will watch almost any sitcom.

    This (although some of the S1 episodes were a bit too off-color for basic cable).

    I watched a couple episodes of "It's always sunny..." from the first season.. before they added Danny DeVito.. did the plot totally change?

    Danny DeVito definitely took it up a notch. It's much funnier with him.
