The National:

WHEN It's Always Sunny creator Rob McElhenney hinted that their live podcast show could be heading across the pond to the UK, The Jouker had hoped that a Scottish tour date would be on the cards.

We even pulled together a quick list of reasons why the cast of the hit FX comedy should bring their show to Scotland, after McElhenney, who also owns Wrexham FC with Holywood star Ryan Reynolds, tweeted that it could be a possibility back in January.

It's Always Sunny is now the longest-running live-action sitcom in US history, following a group of friends who own an Irish bar in Philadelphia since 2005, and has plenty of fans in Scotland and the rest of the UK. 

But alas, just a month later the gang have decided that they won't be bringing their live podcast show, where the cast discusses behind-the-scenes gossip and jokes from the programme, to Scotland.

Instead, they have only booked two stops on their tour - London and Dublin.

With two dates on the cards for London at the Royal Albert Hall, a matinee and evening show on April 16, and a single date in Dublin at the 3Arena in the Irish Capital, The Jouker can't help thinking - why not Scotland?

At least other Scottish fans are taking it as well (or badly) as we are.
