Lucky Louie, RIP
It's a shame when good shows aren't even given a chance and then they die on the vine. HBO marketed the hell out of "Entourage" and gave it time to develop and grow and now it's poised to be the reason that people keep the premium channel through the summer.
But while that show was rising, an even funnier sitcom, Lucky Louie which had a fraction of the budget, was struggling. Not because it wasn't funny, but because HBO didn't really know how to market a program about a modern day couple with foul mouths who raised a precocious little girl in a small apartment.
This week this clip made it on the front page of Digg and it reminded us what HBO bailed on. It's very NSFW and quite adult, so if those things upset you, scroll down. For those who can hang, enjoy Louie C.K. and Pamela Adlon in a scene that's hilarious but probably wont make their reel.
