Hey, at least the pirates want to watch Louis Ck's I Love You, Daddy

In a plot point that wouldn’t have felt out of place on Louie—back when we were in any way comfortable watching Louie, anyway—Louis Ck’s much maligned, largely unseen new film I Love You, Daddy has suffered yet another indignity, as the film—which was shelved after allegations of sexual misconduct on the filmmaker’s…

Tig Notaro: Louis C.K.’s Forced Departure from ‘One Mississippi’ Was ‘A Huge Relief’

Tig Notaro: Louis C.K.’s Forced Departure from ‘One Mississippi’ Was ‘A Huge Relief’
While promoting “One Mississippi” during an appearance on “The View,” star and co-creator Tig Notaro reflected on losing Louis C.K. as a series executive producer last month, a consequence for the sexually harassing behavior he admitted to following a New York Times investigation quoting five accusers.

“It’s a huge relief,” Notaro told the hosts on December 11, explaining that she learned of C.K.’s alleged behavior soon after she sold the series with him attached. “I started publicly trying to distance myself from him almost two years [ago].”

‘House of Cards,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘Today Show’ and More: A Complete Guide To TV Rocked By Sexual Harassment Scandals

Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals have had an immediate effect on the industry — and on TV viewers as well. As networks and studios are confronted with allegations of misconduct and assault by their stars, producers, and even executives, heightened publicity has also prevented them from sweeping such news under the rug.

Instead, from morning to primetime, broadcast, cable and streaming services have been faced with making big moves on some of their biggest properties. In the $1 billion morning show competition, both NBC’s “Today” and CBS’ “This Morning” fired key anchors. Netflix’s and Amazon’s signature, award-winning dramas are expected to return without their lead stars. Paramount Network planned to launch by leveraging the Weinstein brand — but that strategy is dead. And FX must now rebuild its comedy brand without the producer who inspired much of it.

Here’s a continually updated roundup of TV productions that have been

Louis C.K.’s Apology Is Even More Ridiculous in Wacky Song Form — Watch

Louis C.K.’s Apology Is Even More Ridiculous in Wacky Song Form — Watch
When Louis C.K. admitted that the allegations reported by The New York Times about his sexual misconduct were true, a portion of his (let’s face it, mostly male) fans were initially persuaded. C.K.’s apology stood in contrast to the fervent denials spouted by other accused men, but many found his tone flippant and more concerned with his collaborators than his victims. Responding on Twitter, “Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey called his words “a shitshow of narcissistic cock soup,” adding that “he didn’t apologize. Full Stop.”

Sarah Silverman Breaks Silence on 'Best Friend' Louis C.K.: 'Can You Love Someone Who Did Bad Things?'
Sarah Silverman is speaking out about the scandal surrounding her close friend Louis C.K.

Silverman addressed the swirl of news surrounding C.K. — the Louie star has admitted to masturbating in front of multiple women without their consent — in an emotional monologue on Thursday’s episode of her Hulu series I Love You America.

Sarah Silverman Wrestles with Louis C.K.’s Harassment: ‘Can You Love Someone Who Did Bad Things?’
Sarah Silverman opened Thursday’s new episode of “I Love You, America” with a heartfelt and emotional monologue about the current outpouring of sexual harassment and assault allegations dominating the news cycle. And she didn’t shy away from “the elephant masturbating in the room” — Louis C.K.

While Silverman described C.K. as “one of my best friends of over 25 years,” she also didn’t pull her punches in acknowledging that he “masturbated in front of women. He wielded his power with women in fucked-up ways, sometimes to the point where they left comedy entirely.”

Silverman appeared in multiple episodes of “Louie” during its FX run and, as stated above, has a close friendship with him. But in the context of “I Love You, America,” her choice to address the issue was grounded in a statement she made previously in the show’s run: “If it’s mentionable, it’s manageable.

Netflix Didn’t Completely Quit Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., As Streamers Keep Accused Assaulters’ Old Shows

Netflix Didn’t Completely Quit Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., As Streamers Keep Accused Assaulters’ Old Shows
Days after Netflix fired Kevin Spacey from “House of Cards” and canceled an upcoming Louis C.K. standup special, both disgraced stars can still be found on the streaming service.

Five pre-existing Louis C.K. comedy specials, including this spring’s “Louis C.K. 2017,” continue to live on the site, available for viewing.

Meanwhile, four projects still pop up when searching for Spacey’s name, including “House of Cards” and the documentary “Now: In the Wings on a World Stage,” a behind the scenes look at Spacey starring in the Bridge Project production of “Richard III.”

That’s not to say that the streaming service isn’t taking a hit: Netflix scrapped plans to release the Spacey starrer “Gore,” a Gore Vidal biopic that had already finished shooting. And it may have to start over on Season 6 of “House of Cards,” with Robin Wright now as star, even though that show had already been shooting.
