Viewership for the fourth season of Louie was down by about 20% when compared to season three. FX renewed the series anyway but there are just eight episodes this time around. Do the numbers matter or is the cable channel just happy to have the series on its schedule? Will Louie be cancelled or renewed for season six? We’ll have to wait and see.
Louie is the creation of its star, comedian Louis C.K., and is loosely based on the events of his life as a stand-up comic and the divorced father of two girls.
