Louis C.K. Dives Into The East River For This Heartfelt Louie Promo
Personally, I love these spots that don’t rely on borrowed footage from the series itself, as is the norm with most dramas and shows just starting out. Louie is established enough that he doesn’t need to actually give people any jokes, and most of them wouldn’t work as well out of episodic context anyway. I can only sacrifice rubber chickens to the comedy gods he goes purely zany for next season’s ads, like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia did with their faux foreign short films.
Louie Teaser Brings Louis CK Back To New York In Time For Season 4
Louie's back! Or so says the teaser for the return of the FX comedy. Technically, Louis CK's comedy won't be back until Monday, May 5, but we're now close enough to the series' official return that Fox has begun teasing it. And what a tease it is. Let's assume that's Louis CK with his back to the camera in the 17-second spot. The Statue of Liberty is in the distance, offering a lovely black-and-white reminder of the setting for Louis CK's comedy series.

Louie Season 4 Premiere Date Set For Early May
It seems like an eternity since Louie's aired new episodes. In the TV-verse, anything more than a year between seasons is kind of an eternity, and Louie's been off the air since September of 2012, so that's an eternity plus like seven months. But the wait is nearly over. We learned earlier this year that the comedy series would be back on the air for its fourth season in May 5.
Louie Officially Returning To FX In May
The latest and greatest of all the recent announcements comes from FX President John Landgraf, who stated the much-anticipated fourth season of C.K.’s critically acclaimed series Louie will officially be back on TV in May. Ever since C.K. first started his hiatus after the third season, the show was expected to make its return right around May, but actually having it confirmed once and for all is really quite excellent.

A professionally funny host isn't required for a funny Saturday Night Live episode, but it certain doesn't hurt.

Louie Watch: Season 3, Episode 13 - New Year's Eve
Louie closes out a roller coaster of a third season with its best episode since Parker Posey’s tour de force performance early in the season. The episode’s opening act is one of the best C.K. has ever put together as he takes us through the nightmares of being a parent at Christmas time.
Louie Watch: Season 3, Episode 12 - The Late Show, Part 3
Louie closes out its not very epic three part episode, “Late Show”, and the slow build up pays off for the most part. I didn’t know C.K. and Letterman had a history. After writing on the show, C.K. was unofficially banned from the show for 15 years.
Louie Watch: Season 3, Episode 11 - The Late Show Part 2
Louie spends another week moving the pieces for what is sure to be a pretty great episode to close out the show’s longest arc. The show was more successful comedicly and narratively than Part 1, a couple weeks back, as we dive right into the training process for being a late night host. Leading Louie on this journey is a Mr. Doll (pronounced Doll) and he is played wonderfully annoyed by director David Lynch.
Louie Watch: Season 3, Episode 10 - The Late Show Part 1
Louie gives us Part 1 of a three part story arc this week and I don’t really know what to say about it. It is exactly that, Part 1 of a bigger story, and until we see how it all plays out I don’t know what there is to really say. The episode consisted of four scenes basically, Louie telling stand up, Louie getting bumped up to the top guest on the tonight show, Louie waking up to news of a meeting and Louie having said meeting with a Les Moonves type at CBS.
Louie Season 3 : Will Louie Get Bumped By Tom Cruise?

Louie Watch: Season 3, Episode 9 - Looking for Liz; Lilly Changes
Louie gets its mojo back with another half baked idea that works because of its female lead and a brilliant long gag with a perfect pay off.
