    The 15 Best TV Shows Of The 2012/2013 Season

    Unlike the movies, which do operate on a January-December basis when it comes to awards consideration, the TV season is a slightly different proposition. With ratings dipping in the summer, new shows tend to be unveiled in September or early fall, and are usually wrapping up by May. The rise of cabl...

    'The Dark Knight Rises' Makes AFI's Top 10 Of The Year, But No Sign Of 'The Master'

    More rankings! As Oscar prognosticators puzzle, fret and worry over each top ten list that drops, a few patterns are becoming clear -- firstly, everyone loves "Zero Dark Thirty." And secondly, it looks like outside of a couple of categories, Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master"...

    'Louie' Season 4 Won't Air Until May 2014

    There is probably no comedy on television right now more loved or more daring than "Louie." The brainchild of Louis C.K., the show has, over the course of three seasons, been defined by many as a groundbreaking, somewhat visionary program that has redefined the rules of what a comedy shoul...

    Recap: 'Louie' Closes Off Its Third Season With A Pair Of Classics

    In a very fine article on the always excellent AV Club this week, Todd Van Der Werff argues that "Louie" isn't just a strong contender for the best comedy on TV right now, but also the first show since "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons" to genuinely move the form forward. Whether it becomes a touchstone ...

    Recap: 'Louie' Gets An Unlikely Talk-Show Sensei

    With apologies, it's been a little while since we checked in in "Louie" -- we were partly interrupted by festival-related travels and because the show took last week off, presumably because it would have clashed with Barack Obama's speech at the DNC. Or the VMAs. Happily, over the past weeks, Louis ...

    Recap: 'Louie' Goes 'Looking For Liz' With Chloƫ Sevigny In A Mixed Bag Of An Episode

    To say that the third season of "Louie" has taken a more serialized approach would be an exaggeration, but both thematically and narratively, Louis C.K's used a little more continuity than usual across the episodes. Indeed, last week's season high -- with a more stand-alone approach -- was almost th...

    Recap: 'Louie' Flees His Daddy Issues In Strangest Episode Of The Season So Far

    If there's been a theme of the third season of "Louie" so far (although it's been less present in the last couple of episodes), it's "manning up." Louie's girlfriend accused of him of not having the courage to break up with her, he was eviscerated by Melissa Leo for refusing to go down on her, he ha...

    Recap: 'Louie' Finds Its Funny Bone Again With Help From Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman & Marc Maron

    We've talked about this before, but one of the things that makes "Louie" so unique is that it's a half-hour comedy (from a stand-up comedian, no less) that's quite happy to go an episode without making you laugh. Sometimes the stand-up inserts will add a few gags, but some of the most memorable epis...
