For the second day in a row, the return of a critically-adored comedy has been delayed. But where NBC decided to shelve "Community" for now, Louis C.K. was the man who decided that "Louie" won't be returning until the spring of 2014, rather than the summer 2013 schedule we all assumed.
C.K. has always made "Louie" his own way. He takes a much smaller production budget than an average cable scripted half-hour, and in exchange, FX mostly leaves him alone to make the exact show he wants to make. And he's decided that, in order to keep making exactly what he wants, he needs some extra time to do it.
