Renewal news: FX and/or FXX renewed It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for two more seasons (maybe that’s more than enough?) making it the longest-running live-action show in cable history, A&E renewed odd hit Bates Motel for a third season, and HBO predictably renewed Game of Thrones for its fifth and sixth season.
The Starz drama Power, from 50 Cent, will premiere on June 7. [The Wrap]
Oscar Nunez (The Office) and Kerri Kenney (Reno 911!) will guest star on the April 15 season finale of New Girl. [TV Guide]
Bravo also had an upfront presentation this week, though it was nowhere near as exciting as FX’s. It will have two scripted series with horrible titles: Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and Odd Mom Out. On the reality side is The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding, Best New Restaurant (with Tom Colicchio), and a bunch of boring-sounding unscripted shows that will become modest hits for the network.

Ashley Tisdale and George Wendt (Norm!) will co-star in TBS’s as yet untitled barbershop comedy. I was intrigued by the show until Tisdale’s character was described as “one of the guys — but she’s still totally sexy without really trying.” [Deadline]
