So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on…
What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though it just might have had the best sketch – but there were a lot of oddities last night. And oddities are a good thing, as opposed to just the parade of current popular culture references that seemed to litter the first half of this season. Louis C.K. returns for his second hosting gig – and C.K. is an interesting host because (A) he’s good and (B) he’s been, let’s say, known to give up on a sketch when he knows it’s not working. (Remember when he sandbagged the “Mountain Pass” sketch?) And last night we finally did learn if Louis C.K. has a Darth Vader action figure up his butt. Anyway, let’s get to the Scorecard…

'SNL': Louis C.K. Goes to His Doctor's Office For a Weird 'Star Wars' Problem

When you get Louis C.K. to host 'SNL,' there's bound to be at least one sketch that perfectly fits his specific brand of comedy, which tackles reality using surrealism and absurdity. One sketch from last night's episode felt like the perfect halfway point between an episode of C.K.'s FX comedy 'Louie' and a typically crass 'SNL' skit, making it too weird to even consider ignoring.

'SNL': Watch Louis C.K.'s Hilarious Opening Monologue

If you put a professional stand-up comic on a stage, he's going to want to perform. Did anyone actually expect 'SNL' guest host Louis C.K. to play along with any opening monologue idea that wasn't just eight minutes of hilarious comedy carefully culled from whatever he's working on at the moment? After all, C.K. is funny and he knows a good self-promotion opportunity when he sees it.

Where two years ago comedian and 'Louie' star Louis C.K. had his first 'SNL' hosting and promos marred by the onset of Hurricane Sandy, his March 29 return looks to be much smoother sailing. The first promos for this Saturday's 'SNL' return have arrived, wherein the revered comedian jokes with Kenan Thompson about his 'Louie' "character," and the initials of his last name.

So very long ago, we were devastated to learn that FX's Emmy darling 'Louie' would go on hiatus until 2014, allowing Louis C.K. the creative freedom to refine an already-adored series. Now, at long last, FX has set a May return date for the comedian's vignette series, with an extra episode in tow and a heaping helping of new 'Louie' every week.

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?

Before his many Emmy Award nominees for his hit FX series 'Louie,' comedian Louis C.K. wrote and directed a movie that nobody saw. No, not 'Pootie Tang,' another movie that no one saw. It was 1998 and Louis made his directorial debut with a movie titled 'Tomorrow Night.' Despite being accepted to the Sundance Film Festival and boasting a cast that included Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, Conan O'Brien, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and more, the film was never released and few people ever saw it. Until now!

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?
