The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.

by Kevin Fitzpatrick November 12, 2012 @ 6:30 PM
As intriguing as it was to see acclaimed comedian Louis C.K. take on 'SNL' hosting duties for the first time a few weeks back, fans of the comic's FX series 'Louie' still lament the fact that the show's fourth season had been pushed all the way back to 2014.  So, what better way to get our Louis C.K. TV fix than with an all-new HBO stand-up special in 2013?  Will it prove just as award-winning as his last show?

Though not every sketch had us rolling on the floor, last Saturday's 'SNL' turn with Louis C.K. hosting proved to be one of the better outings we've seen in weeks.  Among the numerous highlights of the episode, none got people talking so much as the comedians' spot-on parody of his own FX show 'Louie,' replacing the title character with Abraham Lincoln!  Not all of the funny and NSFW bits mad it to air however, so how would you like to view the unrated director's cut?

Time to show them why you got those Emmys, Louis C.K.  ‘Louie’’s epic third season comes to a close, but can the series reach the high of "The Late Show" trilogy?  ‘Louie’ season 3 suffers through "New Year's Eve" in its thirteenth, and final episode of the year, as Louie celebrates Christmas with his daughters, but finds his New Year's loneliness and an invitation from his sister (Amy Poehler) taking him to strange new places.
