Last night's 'SNL' featuring 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham only ticked so far up from last week's abysmal show with Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory,' but the longrunning NBC sketch comedy series' March 29 return will bring back a much more dependable host. Louis C.K. will return for his second hosting gig after 2012, but who will accompany the eternal sadsack 'Louie' star?
FX remains among the critical favorites for its high-profile talent and strong approach to original storytelling, but the latest pilot news to come out of the TCA press tour has even the most stalwart viewers excited. 'The Hangover' vet Zach Galifianakis will star in a new FX sitcom executive produced by Louis C.K., while John Hawkes and 'Arrested Development''s Michael Cera will star in the new Charlie Kaufman pilot 'How & Why.'
It's been awhile since we've heard any thing on the front of Louis C.K. FX darling 'Louie,' which lest we forget, promises to return in 2014 after a lengthy hiatus from the third season. The long break in between seasons occurred to provide the acclaimed comedian with honest and fresh material, but how long does C.K. see the Emmy-winning dramedy lasting on FX?
We've been so long without any fresh 'Louie' that we've almost forgotten the series will make its glorious return in 2014, but FX has today taken a step to ensure its audience will never lack for autobiographical standup comedy. Comedian D.L. Hughley has closed a deal to write, executive producer and star in his own semi-autobiographical comedy series on FX, but can 'Louie''s success be duplicated?
Months before we have the Emmys or the Golden Globes to worry about, the annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards streamed Monday night and released the full list of winners as chosen by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ expectedly dominated in its many nominations, while the race for Best Drama tied and some surprising new stars were honored.
Though 2012's awards season has only recently come to an end, that doesn't mean filmmakers and studios aren't already plotting 2013's Oscar campaign. And it looks like David O. Russell wants to win a little gold statue as -- for the third time in four years -- he's got a new film scheduled to come out at the end of the year.
2013 feels like a particularly dreary year given that comedian Louis C.K.'s acclaimed FX dramedy 'Louie' won't return until next summer, but the promise of C.K.'s new stand-up special "Oh My God" more than makes up for a 'Louie'-less year. The new stand-up special will air April 13 on HBO, but how would you like to see an epic new trailer right now?
It's still hard to believe that 2013 will pass us by before we see anything new from Louis C.K.'s iconic and Emmy-winning dramedy 'Louie,' but thankfully fans of the comic won't have to wait that long for fresh humor from the notoriously dour comedian. Officially dubbed "Oh My God," Louis C.K.'s upcoming HBO stand-up special has been given an April premiere date, but will it be made available as easily as his previous specials?
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?
