X,Y,Z have acted in W with their real life husbands, but NOT as loving couples
- X is often insulted & comically strangled by her dude
- Y is stalked & harassed for years by her dude despite repeated NO's
- Z is gaslit & manipulated into sex by her dude

Name X,Y,Z,W.
Clue - the husbands are the writers of all these characters and setups
Seems like a stumper, so another clue.

Two of the couples were together before they acted on the show together.

The third couple got together early while shooting the show, but their characters have never had even a hint of romantic interest. They hate each other on screen.

"Prof, I was watching Always Sunny recently and wonder if you have any marketing insights on why it hasn't been cancelled?"

Well, in literal terms, as in the network cancelling the show, it is too popular and keeps gaining younger fans, mostly educated upper middle class.
So in marketing terms, it really is a dream vehicle. You can see from the ads from the airings. The show's mostly liberal urban & suburban white collar viewership (like myself) is THE most lucrative segment. As long as the cast wants to make it, it'll keep going! 🤷🏽‍♂️
As to why it hasn't been "cancelled", well, the answer is complicated.

But first and foremost, Always Sunny hasn't been "cancelled" because #CancelCulture isn't really a thing. And the show avoiding widespread critique is kinda the evidence for that.

You know, I realized that no show has been in my regular "rewatch after a long day to laugh and unwind" lineup as regularly and as long as #AlwaysSunny! Shows will drop in and out of rotation but #AlwaysSunny is always there in the recently watched since like 2008!
Other frequent rewatch fodder that slips in and out of rotation:
Yes Minister
Fawlty Towers
Parks and Rec
Party Down
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Arrested Development
IT Crowd
Fresh Prince
Of course, #AlwaysSunny has run for way more seasons than all these shows (tho Frasier and Cheers have more total episodes). And somehow they have aged more gracefully comedically than Larry David who is still stuck in 2010. I will still rewatch Curb. But Sunny holds up better.

Finally got around to watching #MythicQuest. Apple+ Workplace sitcom set in the gaming industry (Ubisoft is one of the producers) created by 3 of the Always Sunny team.

First observation, hehe, Rob & Charlie have gotten soft. This show has emotions and all. I get it. I get it.
They started #AlwaysSunny in their mid 20s and in the mid 2000s when their personal comedic lens, as was the mood of the times then, was about dark soulless comedy where everyone is an asshole. Seinfeld, Curb, UK Office, Extras. South Park. Family Guy. You remember that time?
While Always Sunny still lives in that dark universe in terms of who the characters are and remain, it has kind of followed the phases of the creators' life cycles and personal growths, if you know what I mean. Dennis still keeps that seething anger alive. But overall, iykyk.
