Why is Louis CK -- one of the finest stand-up comedians in the country and a fantastic television writer to boot -- so bad at putting together television shows for himself? Louie is his second stab at it, and though it's not as bad as the embarrassing Lucky Louie, it's still bafflingly awful. How can someone so brilliant, and someone who has been funny as an actor before (his stint on Parks and Recreation, for example) make a show this bad? And on famously liberating networks, too -- Lucky Louie was on HBO and Louie is on FX, so he can't really blame an oppressive, idiot network. I can't figure it out.
