Yes. But not to the same extent.
Seinfeld reached that conclusion by looking back on the way the series felt. The cast was intended to be mildly annoying and a bit toxic, but ultimately harmless folks.
It was the end goal in Always Sunny. The cast are evil people, objectively worsening every person they come across.
Contrast Kim, who was routinely offended by Frank refusing to behave according to Korean customs and twice broke off their mutually loving relationship, to Always Sunny’sRickety Cricket.
Cricket wore humiliating giant leg braces while he was in high school with the Gang, hence his nickname. He had an enormous crush on Dee from their time in physical therapy together; she promised to kiss him if he ate a horse turd. After he ate the turd, she refused to kiss him since, as she says, “his breath smelled like shit.”
Mac and Dennis have been teabagging Cricket at every opportunity since high school; mainly Dennis would teabag Cricket when he passed out at parties. Dennis claims that he has a shoebox full of pictures of him and Mac doing this, and that pictures are surfacing on the Internet.
After High School Matthew “Cricket”, got his BA in theology from Liberty University and His Masters of Theology From Dallas Theological Seminary. He joined the priesthood shortly thereafter. During the episode “the gang exploits a miracle” Cricket reconnects with the gang and leaves the priesthood at another chance at love with Dee. After she denies him yet again his life begins a downward spiral.
He has steadily spiraled down over the years thanks to the actions of the Gang: leaving the priesthood, becoming homeless, various drug addictions (namely cocaine, crack and PCP), having his legs broken by the mob, having his throat slashed, being left blind in one eye, covered in scars from a dog, and having the left side of his face covered in burns.
Cricket now spends his days as a drug-addicted homeless man on the streets, often turning tricks in the scrap metal yard (in exchange for a six pack of beer or equivalent), where he is frequently raped by feral dogs.
The Gang seems to feel no sense of responsibility for what has happened to Cricket. In “The Gang Squashes Their Beefs,” everyone in the Gang seems to be mystified as to what sort of “beef” he could possibly have with them. In “Psycho Pete Returns”, they don’t even remember him being at the Thanksgiving dinner, even though his horrible scars make it clear he was indeed there. In “Time’s Up for the Gang”, Dennis goes so far as to genuinely suggest Cricket was born the way he currently is.
