Louis C.K. Talks <I>Louie</i> Season 3, His Best Friends and Jerry Seinfeld

Fans of Louis C.K. and his FX sitcom can understand why I can't recommend the series enough; Louie is great. To promote tonight's Season 3 premiere, Louis C.K. took a press call yesterday to answer a few questions about what we'll see in coming episodes. To spare you spoilers and a lot of the same queries about why the character who plays Louie's ex-wife is African American -- hint: it's because she's a talented actress -- I've pulled out the interview highlights, which are entirely free of dick jokes (unfortunately).

We Are Men: Welcome to the Bromance

<I>We Are Men</I>: Welcome to the Bromance

We were trying our best to forget this show was coming, but while we were watching the delayed Amazing Race, we were inundated with commercials for it, hyping it as "MenDay" and showing clips of it and Barney on How I Met Your Mother. So I guess they are ignoring that the other two sitcoms that follow it have female-centric titles and that there's a woman in a leading role on Hostages? Why didn't they just pair this show with Two and a Half Men so we could have obnoxious guys saying horrible things for a solid hour? Or call it "Men Hour" or something? Instead, the promos just added to the list of things that annoy us about this new sitcom, even though it isn't directly the show's fault.

<I>Parks and Recreation:</i> Who Made the Comedy Grade This Week? (Part 2)

The first scene of "Jerry's Retirement" has the triumphant return of Ben's Letters to Cleo shirt, so you knew it was going to be fun. I didn't love it as much as "Article Two," but the premise of Jerry retiring was hilarious, and it only further confirms my theory that in the season finale, we'll learn that Leslie, April and Ann are all pregnant... you know, assuming there's a bit of a time-jump or something. Until then, let's do this:

If moving a television show to Fridays is the kiss of death, moving it to Saturdays is burying it and holding the funeral.

Law & Order: Bad For Your Fat Ass

<i>Law & Order</i>: Bad For Your Fat Ass

I'm being serious! According to a recently published report, Law & Order and so-called "must-bleed" TV shows of its ilk (CSI, Criminal Minds, The Closer and what have you) that depict death and violence are linked to people buying and eating more food. Something about when being faced with one's own mortality -- because violent, ripped-from-the-headlines murders really get you thinking on a deeper level -- it's easier to rationalize eating that entire can of Pringles. Not that I've done that.

Oprah To Bring a Much-Needed Spotlight to 30 Rock

Oprah To Bring a Much-Needed Spotlight to <I>30 Rock</I> The all-powerful Oprah Winfrey is in talks to lend a stuntcasting hand to our beloved 30 Rock, the greatest show on television that hardly anybody is watching. She's thisclose to playing herself in an episode this fall, though it's not clear what her storyline will be. I for one hope she just shows up at TGS as a representative of The Black Crusaders, the group of highly powerful African-Americans who terrorized Tracey Jordon at the end of Season 1. Not so sure how down Oprah would be with that idea, but the mere fact that she's agreed to be on the show in the first place probably means she's aware of The Black Crusaders storyline and isn't too terribly offended by it. Or The Black Crusaders are real, and she's just come to disperse disinformation about them. I'm leaning towards the latter, because conspiracies are fun!
