FX Renews 'Louie' and Other Shows

FX has picked up  Louie for a fourth season because it's the best and they aren't monsters. The show has been averaging a 1.2 18-49 rating, which isn't earth shattering but it's solid for FX and Louis is able to make his show very cheaply. Russell Brand's BrandX also got renewed for seven more episodes that will air in the fall with some "creative changes." Also, Wilfred is likely to get renewed in the near future, as its rating are up 12% this season. Which brings us to Anger Management, which will likely get picked up for 90 more episodes. The network won't make a final decision until the first 10 episodes air but so far the show is far exceeding expectations. If/when it does get picked up, ex-POTUS Martin Sheen has signed on to play Charlie's dad, a role he is quite familiar with. No word yet on what Emilio Estevez has been doing for the last 15 years.

    Very excited about this.  Also, I really hope "Wilfred" gets picked up for a third season.  It's been off the charts amazing this past season.

    After being hounded by my coworker at Dish to watch Louie for a month I did last night. This show is brilliant! I can honestly see why they have requested another season. I have started to DVR the previous season and they might be just as well written as this season. I was watching a lot of TV other TV shows with my Dish Remote Access app but as of late this is the only show I seem to watch.
