Louis C.K. Confers with Charles Grodin in First Clip from Louie Season 4

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’re less than a month away from new episodes of Louie, and in anticipation of the debut, FX has released the first clip from season four to tide fans over.  It’s a brief teaser of what’s sure to be a fantastic batch of episodes, but what’s particularly exciting about this clip is that it reveals a guest presence by the great Charles Grodin.  He plays Louis C.K.’s doctor in the clip, and the less said about what transpires the better.  We know essentially nothing about what season four of Louie entails, but the writer/director/star/executive producer has excelled in previous episodes with delivering stories that are unexpected, hilarious, dramatic, and at times very dark.  Grodin is surely one of many familiar faces that will pop up throughout the new season, as season three's excellent guest stars ranged from Jerry Seinfeld to Parker Posey to David Lynch. »

Watch: Louis C.K. Jumps Off the Brooklyn Bridge in Teaser for Season Four of 'Louie'

16 April 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For all the boundary-breaking he does on his hit FX show "Louie," Louis C.K. sticks with tradition when it comes to one thing: jumping off bridges. In the new black and white teaser (posted below) for the fourth season of C.K.'s dark comedy, Louie dives right off the Brooklyn bridge into the East river, clutching a handful of roses on his way down. Don't worry. He's not dead. Just metaphorically determined to find love, even if it means taking an intimidating plunge. The simply-but-beautifully shot 30-second spot ends looking over lower Manhattan with the show's title written in the sky and a heart in place of the "o." Combine that with the roses and it doesn't take a genius to put together a theme for this season. It's spring, and love is in the air.  Take a look at the teaser below. "Louie" returns Monday, May 5th on FX. »

'Louie': Louis C.K. jumps in dark new teaser -- Video

16 April 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Louis C.K. is no stranger to dark material — in his FX show Louie, his character has found himself fearing for Parker Posey’s life as she discussed jumping off a building and trying to talk an old comedian friend out of committing suicide. But in the latest teaser for the show’s upcoming fourth season, Louie’s the one flirting with death.

After a 19-month hiatus, Louie is returning May 5 at 10 p.m. Et with special back-to-back half-hour episodes.

See a Disturbing Teaser for Louie’s New Season

16 April 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Louie's fourth season premieres May 5, and now FX has released the first teaser for the long-awaited return. Warning to anyone sensitive to images about suicide: Don't watch this. The clip is a shot of Louie C.K. swan-diving off the Brooklyn Bridge, and though he survives (unlike his bouquet of roses), it's still a very jarring segment. Louie has always been a bleak and cynical show, and last season's "Daddy's Girlfriend Part 2" included Parker Posey standing on the edge of a building's roof, but there are still those among us who might consider using suicidal imagery in a commercial to be in poor taste. »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- Vote

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, »

Stephen Colbert’s Rise: From South Carolina to Second City to Pop Culture Player

10 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert has made a career out of playing a bombastic conservative commentator, first on “The Daily Show” and for nearly 10 years on “The Colbert Report.”

But his next move, succeeding David Letterman on CBS’ “The Late Show,” might be the toughest assignment yet. Colbert’s comedy will no longer be guided by his faux personality, but his real one.

Earlier: Stephen Colbert to Replace David Letterman on ‘Late Show’

“Colbert Report’s” longevity has defied the odds and the skeptics who didn’t think the joke would remain funny week in and week out for an extended run. To the credit of Colbert and his team, they’ve been savvy about keeping it fresh with an eclectic mix of guests, performers, running gags (as elaborate as him running for President) and the occasional out-of-town stand.

The move to “The Late Show” will introduce America to the real Stephen Colbert, »

2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Actor

7 April 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jim Parsons has won this three of the last four years, but is it finally Louis Ck's turn to beat him? Both will surely be nominated, though beyond that its much more slim pickings than the comedy actress category (which is kind of a good thing). Don Cheadle and/or Matt LeBlanc could return. Andy Samberg and/or Robin Williams could make it in for their series' first (and in Williams' case, perhaps last) seasons... And maybe the "Shameless" category switch will bring in William H. Macy.  We'll see. Below are predictions for best comedy actor from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check back as they might very well change 'em up between now and July 10th. Check out predictions in all the categories here. Ben's predictions: 1. Louis Ck, Louie 2. Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory 3. Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine Nine 4. Don Cheadle, »

Todd Barry talks 'Crowd Work' special and getting your friends to pay for stuff

7 April 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Though he has put “stand-up comedian” on his tax return for over two decades, Todd Barry did not prepare any new material for his brand new special, which was produced by Louis C.K. and distributed through his website for five bucks.

But don’t worry—the show isn’t an hour of awkward silence. Instead, it focuses solely on Barry’s interaction with various audiences across a seven date trek up the west coast. The result is Todd Barry: The Crowd Work Tour.

“A special of mine came out about a year-and-a-half ago. And a lot of people are like, »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Anna Kendrick's episode sings -- Vote

7 April 2014 6:59 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Having great vocal range typically implies an ability to sing in a variety of octaves. I’ll take it on faith that Anna Kendrick, who hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, has that gift to a certain degree. But I’m more impressed by Kendrick’s other musical range: the ability to sing a G-rated version of a beloved Disney princess tune and a raunchy ditty that includes the lyric, “Each dong is like a snowflake.”

Kendrick’s show emphasized her singing background — not a bad way to go for the Pitch Perfect star. Perhaps the show was short on laugh-out-loud moments, »

Live blogging the 49th annual Acm Awards

7:50 p.m.: Hello from the 49th annual Acm Awards in Las Vegas.  We'll be blogging live from the press room, which means we'll be commenting on the action you're seeing on TV, but also on what's going on backstage as the artists come back to talk to the press. The Band Perry are opening the show with an explosive version of "Chainsaw," and the performers' list is a virtual who's who of country: Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, George Strait, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and more. There are 25 performances in all. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are co-hosting for the second year, so there should be plenty of laughs. 8:04 p.m.: The Band Perry opens the show with a midtempo tune called "Chainsaw." It's all sizzle and very little steak, with Kimberly Perry stomping around, confetti flying, and Reid Perry »

Brian Lowry on TV’s Best Opening Titles: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘The Walking Dead’

6 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” returns April 6, bringing with it what is arguably TV’s finest current opening-title sequence. What makes a great main title? A topnotch show helps, obviously – or at least, does on this list. Here, aside from Ramin Djawadi’s hummable, stirring and muscular score, there’s that handy visual guide to help put audiences in the mood for another trip to George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world.

As for other contenders for the throne, here are five:

The Big Bang Theory: Yes, it’s over in a flash, but the Barenaked Ladies’ theme song helpfully covers several billion years of history in playfully introducing CBS’ mega-hit comedy. (This video is an illustrated version.)

Downton Abbey: John Lunn’s score coupled with the great estate are integral characters in PBS’ lustrous period melodrama.

Louie: What could be more appropriate than using the song “Brother Louie” to »

‘Saturday Night Live’ On Par With Anna Kendrick As Host

6 April 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Both Anna Kendrick and last week’s Louis C.K. have received solid marks for their hosting, but Saturday Night Live‘s streak of suppressed ratings, which started with the Lena Dunham episode, continues. Last night’s episode, with host Kendrick and musical guest Pharrell, drew a 4.0 household rating in the metered markets and a 2.2 in adults 18-49 in the markets with Local People Meters. That was even in households with last week’s show hosted by Louis C.K. (4.0), matching the second lowest result of the season, and up a tenth in 18-49. The Lena Dunham episode averaged a 4.1 and 2.1.

New 'Louie' Season Four Trailers Deliver Dark Love Letters to NYC

5 April 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

FX released three new trailers for the fourth season of Louie this week, and the promos together create a sort of melancholy triptych love letter to New York City.

 All three brief clips are shot in moody black and white, and each features the series' creator, writer, director and star Louis C.K. from the back, taking in some essential New York landmark. The first one is reminiscent of the iconic Queensboro Bridge scene in Woody Allen's Manhattan, with C.K. sitting on a bench and gazing out across the river. »
