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?
This week Louis C.K. takes the 'SNL' stage in New York post-hurricane and pre-election in one of the most highly-anticipated episodes of the season. So how did the subversive comedian do?
It's always interesting to see who is good at the whole "hosting 'Saturday Night Live'" thing. Some people that seem like sure things turn out to be awful (Daniel Craig) and others who don't seem to offer much turn out to be incredible hosts (Bruno Mars). This also applies to the host's opening monologue: some people are capable of standing and delivering on a stage and some people aren't. We think it's safe to say that Louis C.K. is more than capable of this.
One of the best (and strangest) moments on last night's Saturday Night Live combined two things that, on paper, have no right to work together. What happens when you take guest host Louis C.K.'s wonderful FX series 'Louie' and recast it with Abraham Lincoln? The result is something bizarre and brilliant.
