Poor, unlucky Louis

Man, you really have to stink for HBO not to give you a second season.

If you didn't hear, HBO won't be inviting Louis C.K. over to its house on Sunday nights anymore. Methinks that production costs were not the issue. Shows such as Carnivale and Rome each got second seasons, and I'm sure a single episode of Rome or Carnivale costs as much as the entire Lucky Louis production run. The Wire averages the same number of viewers as LL, but is already slated to return for a fifth and final season.

No, methinks that it was simply an issue of quality -- of which The Wire, Carnivale, Rome, and The Sopranos have quite a bit.

Rest in peace, Lucky Louis. You will be remembered as HBO's first (and hopefully last) three-camera sitcom.
