The season premiere of "Louie" is finally here, tonight at 10:30pm. Above is our quick interview with Louis C.K. from the season 2 premiere party at Caroline's comedy club in New York City (see the full post on the event here). Please also check out our exclusive interview with Louis on location (or listen to it here) and another that we did with him earlier this year. Season two of "Louie" will grab you from the very first scene of tonight's episode - we've seen the first 4 and they're all amazing. Last night Louis was on the "Tonight Show" making it the first time it was funny in quite a while. If you want more of him, CNN has a quick interview with him also available and worth checking out.
Tonight also marks the series premiere of FX's "Wilfred" at 10pm. Starring Elijah Wood, the series is a remake of an Australian show that lasted a couple of short seasons. I thought the show was funny but it's sometimes dark and extremely quirky which may not sit right with a lot of people but we suggest you give it a try.
White Stripes/Jack White and Stephen Colbert fans have reason to celebrate as the two plan to collaborate on an album. For a taste of what it might sound like, watch "The Colbert Report" tonight as a performance is planned.
