Louis C.K.’s ‘Louie’ isn’t returning until 2014!

Oh look, even more bad news for people who appreciate quality comedy TV. After NBC decided to postpone the new season of Community in favor of more episodes of Doctor Monkey, now it looks like Louie, the acclaimed series by comedy god Louis C.K., is reportedly taking a break and won’t be returning until 2014. As I said: THE DARKEST TIMELINE. Via the A/V Club

Never one to care much about buzz or your feelings, Louis C.K. will follow his Emmy win for Louie by taking a long hiatus, keeping the show off the air until the spring of 2014. “I don’t want it to be making the donuts,” C.K. said in a network conference call today. “I want it to be something that comes from somewhere important and stays funny. It’s a luxury I asked for … Season four is my job right now, but I’m going to take a whole lot of time to turn it in.” FX president John Landgraf chimed in that, given how involved C.K. is in every aspect of the show, “I’m not surprised he needs a bit of a break.” Though of course, that “break” includes an already-confirmed 22-city stand-up tour that will delay the writing of any new Louie stories until sometime in early 2013, leaving hardly any time for laying around and eating ice cream.

Well, at least he’s taking the break for the sake of touring and writing, so it’s not like the show won’t be coming back at top form. But on the other hand, the fact that The Neighbors and Made in Jersey are allowed on the air is proof enough that the standard sitcom is dying alone and unloved.
