FX LIKES LOUIE

Network Orders Second Season of Comedy Series Starring Louis C.K.

Seven All New Episodes Remain in Season One, Tuesdays at 11 PM ET/PT With Season One Finishing with Two All New Back-to-Back Episodes Airing September 7

LOS ANGELES, August 3, 2010 - FX has ordered another season of its newest critically acclaimed comedy series Louie, starring actor/comedian Louis C.K., picking up a 13-episode second season, today announced John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks.

Seven all new episodes of Louie remain in season one, airing Tuesdays at 11 PM ET/PT, with the two final episodes airing back-to-back on September 7 at 11:00 PM and 11:30 PM behind the season three premier of Sons of Anarchy at 10:00 PM.

"Louis has made a truly original series - a comedy unlike anything on television, but perfect for his unique voice," said Landgraf. "We are very happy with the show's performance and critical acclaim, and are delighted to move forward with a second season. With the pick up of Louie, FX has renewed all three new original comedies that the channel debuted over the last year."

Louie is a comedy filtered through the observational humor of Louis C.K. Each episode puts a spotlight on Louis' hectic life as a successful stand-up comedian and newly single father raising his two daughters. The single-camera comedy is a mix of Louis C.K.'s stand-up comedy and scripted stories. Louis C.K. serves as executive producer, writer and director, and Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment are executive producers. FX has ordered 13 episodes of the series which is produced by FX Productions.

Through six episodes, on a first-run basis Louie is averaging 1 million total viewers and 727,000 Adults 18-49 (most current). On a weekly four-run telecast basis, with three episodes of complete data, Louie is averaging 2.5 million total viewers and 1.7 million Adults 18-49 (Live+7). On a Live+7 basis, with four episodes of data recorded, first-run episodes of Louie are averaging 1.2 million total viewers and 819,000 Adults 18-49. (Source: The Nielsen Company)

FX Productions co-produces the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) award-winning Damages and Justified (with Sony Pictures Television), the critically acclaimed hit drama series Sons of Anarchy (with Fox 21) and the upcoming drama series Lights Out (with Fox Television Studios) starring Holt McCallany.
