In the wake of Louie‘s strangest and most thought-provoking (not to mention debate-provoking) seasons ever, we think we speak for all the show’s fans in saying we want more. Now. Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen that way. FX has announced that Louis CK is taking an extended hiatus from the show, meaning that we… Read More
1. Here’s a clip of Orbital and Stephen Hawking performing at the opening ceremony for the Paralympics, which just kicked off in London. Those Hadron Collider dancers might be our favorite part.

We’ve been excited for the second season of American Horror Story – which will be known as American Horror Story: Asylum – since we found out that it would feature Jessica Lange as a nun who runs an insane asylum and Chloë Sevigny as her trouble-making patient, Shelley the Nymphomaniac. But now that FX has released the first teaser for the series’ October 5th return, we’re ready to celebrate Halloween two months early. The clip below lasts only 19 seconds, and we’re not going to spoil it for you, because it’s chilling to the core. Well, OK, we’ll spoil it a little: Yes, those are body parts. Click through to watch the shortest horror movie you’ve ever seen and tell us whether you think that’s Lange in the habit. … Read More
Those who are familiar with the Foo Fighters’ music video oeuvre (“Everlong”! “Low”!) realize that Dave Grohl is a very funny guy, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before he made his way into the comedy world. Deadline is reporting that the rocker is executive producing a half-hour sitcom for… Read More
Some potentially exciting news for Louis CK fans: The stand-up comedian has teamed up with Seinfeld alum Spike Feresten on a new pilot that the pair just sold to CBS. There aren’t many details to go on at this point, but according to James Hibberd at Inside TV, “the untitled project is an… Read More
Earlier this week we raised an eyebrow over the news that Russell Brand would be teaming up with New Girl producers Chernin Entertainment to create his own animated series for Fox, which will be written by Bob’s Burgers sribes Dan Fybel and Rich Rinaldi. Now we find out that beginning this spring, he’ll… Read More
FX will be bringing former Upright Citizens Brigade’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s web series Broad City to television, with the help of former SNL member Amy Poehler. The Parks and Recreation actress will be executive producing the comedy team, who are set to continue writing and starring in the series. Twenty-something BFFs played by Jacobson and Glazer ” … [navigate] their way though the mundane situations that we all call life … each moment, however, is distinctly Abbi and Ilana.” Poehler has appeared on the series before, which you can catch a glimpse of past the break. As Deadline reports, this is just one of several off-beat comedic shows that the network has been promoting. They also host It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the down-on-his-luck Louie. Are you looking forward to seeing more from these ladies? … Read More

Last season it felt like FX’s raunchy and hilarious sitcom, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was getting a bit long in the tooth. Perhaps it’s because the first five seasons about the demented gang that owns Paddy’s Pub were so gloriously absurd and raised the bar for intelligent, crass humor. Season six, however, was just disappointing. So, it was much welcomed this summer when one of the actors on the show decided to gain 50 pounds for the new season, launching the summer of “Fat Mac.” Then, FX released a few hilarious promo videos and the excitement for the show quickly rekindled on the Internet.
The new season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia kicks off tomorrow night. Over at Uproxx, they were doing some heavy lifting by rounding up the best GIFs from the show and then the best fan art ahead of the premiere. This list is by no means comprehensive, but take a gander of what we picked as the best moments/scenes from the show’s available YouTube clips and let us know if it matches up with your own favorites in the comments. … Read More
1. Outkast rapper Big Boi was arrested yesterday in Miami on drug charges after he was “busted by drug-sniffing dogs while getting off a cruise ship.” In his possession? Viagra, ecstasy pills and powdered MDMA, so we’re assuming that he had an active vacation. [via Gawker]
