Herc’s Seen Tonight’s Very TV-MA LOUIE 3.2!! Kimmel On The KATHY Finale!! Chat Here Also About ANGER, AWKWARD, BLUE, BRAND X, And WIPEOUT!! Thursday TV Talkback!!

Published at: July 5, 2012, 4:33 p.m. CST

Interesting thing about tonight’s “Louie”: Despite the motorcycle mishap depicted last week, this week’s episode demonstrates that the title character is still on the bike. (I guess the real CK has taken to this mode of transportation; not the stupidest idea for someone dwelling in New York.)

That’s Oscar-winner and longtime “Homicide: Life on the Street” star Melissa Leo in the clipas Louie’s potential love interest this week. (How many millions, I wonder, has Richard Belzer accrued playing John Munch at this point?)


Tonight’s finales:


Kathy (10pm Bravo)


Breaking Pointe (8pm CW)


Dance Academy (8:30pm TeenNick)


Final Offer (10pm Discovery)


Selling New York (9pm HGTV)

 


New episodes of “Anger Management” are not pulling the kind of audience new episodes of “Two and a Half Men” do. Nor is the show doing “Walking Dead” or “True Blood” or “Jersey Shore” business. But by cable sitcom standards it launched as a blockbuster, which I understand means we’re getting another 98 episodes.

“Anger” is not a good show, but it did bring a bigger audience to “Louie,” so that’s a good thing. And check out last week’s “Wilfred” number compared to its rating the week prior!

“Wipeout” is a shadow of its Wagner-enhanced former self, but it’s also at the moment Thursday’s number-two show.

“The Rachel Maddow Show” tied “The O’Reilly Factor” in adults 18-49 the day we learned the Supreme Court did not rule ObamaCare unconstitutional.

    You got something against Swamp People, Herc?

    by Shermdawg

    It's not listed in the ratings and the season isn't over yet.

  • July 5, 2012, 4:39 p.m. CST

    I wonder if they'll sneak Munsch into Treme somehow

    by tangcameo

    Or Breaking Bad. Or Community or Modern Family.

  • July 5, 2012, 5:10 p.m. CST

    Or maybe it was listed.

    I dunno.

    The USA network shows took the holiday week off. Not that the post titles have been completely accurate about what is actually airing that night anyway.

    Melissa Leo

    by NudeandAroused

    I agree that "Homicide" was certainly the best TV show on at its time; however, Leo also won the Academy Award. Might not that deserve mentioning?

  • AND LOUIE IS GENIUS APPOINTMENT TV!

    He talked about it on Mark Maron's podcast, great interview/talk.

  • July 5, 2012, 6:28 p.m. CST

    I think Belz still has the record

    by ciroslive

    for most appearances as one character on multiple TV Shows (Homicide: LOTS, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, The X-Files, The Beat, The Wife, Arrested Development)

    *THE WIRE

    by ciroslive

  • ciroslive - was that a Freudian slip, writing The Wife, accidentally, after The Beat? And is Worst Tatoos any better, or worse, than The Best Bleached Taints of the Stars show? Next up, coming this fall, *Hollywood's Kookiest Shaved Vaginas*, with your host Abe (I'm still not dead) Vigoda....

  • ....and that she gets pummeled by BOTH Hannity and BOR??? on a DAILY basis. CARE to fucking point THAT out while ur at it, u freaking hack?? Maddow- 1.4 BOR- 2.8 Hannity- 2.5 the dullard Maddow gets PUMMLED 2:1!!! WHY no *mentioning* of THAT hmmmmmm????

    by boyalien

    As a full-on, 100% far-left liberal Democrat, I have to say, your strange, childish habit of cherry picking stats and shoehorning them into irrelevant articles is just.......weird. Then again, if you really are a registered Republican, it makes perfect sense.

    You should add Tron uprising to the Thursday line up.

    by mistergreen

    It a fine show even though for kids.

  • July 6, 2012, 12:40 a.m. CST

    Go Rachel Maddow woo-hoo!

    by slayme

    the thinking person's choice to bill o' and the cast of fools over at foxnoise. although her corey booker interview was more of a PR piece, in general if you want real news - Rachel is a good place to start. Real Time w/Bill Maher and Cenk from The Young Turks are good too.

  • July 6, 2012, 1:12 a.m. CST

    I agree Tron Uprising is pretty great!

    What's so great about Louie?

    by Dr Hemlock

    His followers are like Apple fanboys or Ron Paul supporters -- and I just don't get it. Louie (the show) reminds me of the skits on Saturday Night Live: no apparent point to them and no real endings - just keep the so-called "jokes" coming and when the writers can't think of anymore jokes stop the story.

  • then more power to it. Bravo and good luck.

    dr hemlock

    by gotilk

    Nah, not really. It's just good. I don't even expect you to like it or think anything is wrong with you if you don't. That's the major difference. Major. Huge. Difference. I actually know a guy that's both too. LOL. Apple fanboy AND Paulite. What a combo.

    You're an obsessed, borderline stalker-like freak. If anyone here is pathetic, it would be you. I thought maybe I'd kick back and just see how it goes. Maybe your ex is liberal or something, or fucked one. But nah... you're just fucking bizarre.

  • July 6, 2012, 7:17 a.m. CST

    Oh geee....

    by gotilk

    I wonder if he'll focus on me now too. Phht! Either way... it just doesn't matter because he doesn't matter.

    Brand X

    by purplemonkeydw

    is brilliant, second ep was better than the first. think he's finding his way, love the show.

  • July 6, 2012, 10:05 a.m. CST

    lol, suuuure gotlik. lets see...

    by jay2517

    *You're an obsessed, borderline stalker-like freak.*--- says the man(?) that trolls MY posts, stalking ME. hypocrite much? *If anyone here is pathetic, it would be you.*--- how? by pointing out Herc the fucking Hack's obviously progressive partisanship and distortions, lies and misinformation? and refuting them with actual facts?? *I thought maybe I'd kick back and just see how it goes.*--- but, u didnt, did u? *Maybe your ex is liberal or something, or fucked one. But nah... you're just fucking bizarre.*--- nope, they werent that stupid . and i see u have started projecting early today! btw- how is it *bizarre* to point out Herc lies, misinformation and distortions? and in a TALKBACK no less lol?? *I wonder if he'll focus on me now too.*--- i DO tend to point out obvious lies, misinformation and distortions. simply dont engage in such things and ill not point them out mmmk? btw- it seems YOU'RE focusing on ME, not the other way around hypocrite. *Phht! Either way... it just doesn't matter because he doesn't matter.*--- again! with the projection :) u DO matter little guy! dont let people tell u different! BTW- i see u couldnt refute ANY of my facts concerning Maddow or Herc's obvious misinformation. wonder why??? Herc spouted the obvious distortion. fuss at him, not me! when in doubt, fall back to typical AICN progressive tactics...insult the messenger and ignore the facts.

  • In any case, I'll stick to jousting with people who don't like Barbarella and such, with maybe an occasional comment here or there on the political ones without reallly talking politics - too much agita for me, but we already talked about that. now religion, that's something else - just kidding - in any case - hold your own, have fun and be well, my friend Who knows, goblinknightlex might make a return with a different moniker, and we can all join together to *greet him* too damn hot here in PA - going up to over 100 tomorrow - at least we still have power going out now to fry some eggs and bacon on the sidewalk

  • - I have been trying to get him to watch Workaholics - maybe I will force one on him tonight after seeing THE ARTIST- have you seen it?

  • ever sice L O S T ended i havent really been to keen on tv talkbacks overall. i sometimes post in The Walking Dead, but that got old with all the usual idiot *haters*. i mean, its a freaking TV show! its not real life. now, the pig prick Maher is a different thing all together lol. it wouldnt be so bad if Herc and Mahers tb *fans* would be honest about his horribly biased partisanship and hatred of all things hi deems *unworthy*. if a conservative said the things he does, it would be gnashing of teeth on here. the perfect example is the Maddow fiasco of last week. the idiots here could not simply acknowledge she had a horribly embarrassing appearance on Maher. at least YOU could see the truth. thats my biggest bugaboo about Fridays tb's. that and Herc bullshit, as seen in THIS very tb. anyway, i havent seen The Artist. any good? Viva La Amigos!!! BTW- i take my eggs over easy!

  • you know I lean to the left, yet we can still be civil and for that I have much appreciation But, I wish everyone could see past their political orientations, and not ALWAYS be rooting for their home team, even when the truth tells them- *now is the time to be critical* For example, yes I wanted Maddow to shine on Maher with some clever comments, but she did not deliver- we disagree, but I usually have a lot of respect for her and what she says And to cite the best example, when Clinton lied about *I did not have sex with that women, Ms. Lewinski,* I could tell, just by the way he phrased his response- THAT HE WAS LYING!!!! In fact, when I heard it, I shouted to the air: LIAR! no one is perfect- on either side- I do wish though, that more conservatives would cry foul when they see someone being less than earnest on their own side of the spectrum, rather than just concentrate all of their criticisms on the party they oppose. It would make for a much healthier, less divisive America, seeing the grey areas of misinformationo n both sides being challenged and questioned, rather than just blindly accepted as the one and only reality. Now I shall step off the soapbox, and have some eggs and bacon ala concrete.

  • July 6, 2012, 6:03 p.m. CST

    good points, mcgoo....

    by jay2517

    *But, I wish everyone could see past their political orientations, and not ALWAYS be rooting for their home team, even when the truth tells them- *now is the time to be critical*--- i totally agree. however, Herc the fucking Hack, ALWAYS presents negatives about conservatives/republicans yet is INTENTIONALLY OBLIVIOUS to the likes of Maher etc. he ALWAYS posts an article that paints con/rep in a bad light even going as far to distort, lie or misrepresent them. the perfect example is in this very tb about Maddow tying BOR. its completely pathetic. *And to cite the best example, when Clinton lied about *I did not have sex with that women, Ms. Lewinski,* I could tell, just by the way he phrased his response- THAT HE WAS LYING!!!! In fact, when I heard it, I shouted to the air: LIAR!*--- agreed! what gets me is...no one cared about the BJ, just own up to it! *no one is perfect- on either side- I do wish though, that more conservatives would cry foul when they see someone being less than earnest on their own side of the spectrum, rather than just concentrate all of their criticisms on the party they oppose.*--- well, its kinda hard to call out irresponsibility in the republican party when ur CONSTANTLY having to defend it from the lying, distorting and misinforming agent Herc the fucking Hack. when has Herc the fucking Hack EVER had a negative article about democrats/progressives? hes far from *far and balanced* wouldnt u say?? let me know how it goes :)

    Maybe if the party started being conservatives

    by gotilk

    and stopped sucking Limbaugh/Christian Coalition cock.... maybe I could be dragged back to the party, at least from time to time. The Republic party is a fucking mess, has been for decades now. The party of bat-shit stupid. Fix it, or the whole thing can fuck off. It hasn't always been that way, and it can be fixed. If they eventually have the guts (not likely), they could get my vote again. They have had my votes in the past, especially in protest (Boxer?? PHTTTYAHE! No fucking way.). But now I've stopped with that even. They can just wither away as far as I'm concerned. But on a better topic... holy crap Louie was hilarious. When she punched him, I literally was scared shitless for a split second, then was literally rolling laughing, especially when she started shoving her crotch in his face. What an actress!!
