The Gang Gets Ranked

Perhaps you’ve seen the awful list on Deadspin ranking every episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Everyone who has seen this list has gotten pissed off because it is so wrong. I should know because I am one of those people.

I have channelled my pissed-off energy and superior fan knowledge and good brains to create the perfect formula for ranking every episode from the first 11 seasons of IASIP so no one else has to.

As you read through this list you may wonder “Why isn’t the episode I like best on top?” or “Why is a good episode ranked low and a bad episode ranked high?” That is because, unlike my formula, you are a flawed being. Once you have come to terms with this, you can scroll down and begin reading the list.

Hours of time was spent calculating the ultimate ranked list of Always Sunny episodes.
