Louis C.K., Marc Maron
With the anticipated return of Louie still eight months away, we're getting antsy without our Louis C.K. fix. Thankfully, the actor took time to share details about the FX show's anticipated fourth season and explain the reason behind the extended hiatus at New York's PaleyFest on Thursday.
"It was for the good of the show. I didn't want to start making the show with...
It's safe to say Louis C.K. probably wasn't standing in line Friday to get his hands on one of Apple's new iPhones.
In an interview with Conan O'Brien Thursday, the comedian went into great — and extremely thoughtful — detail about why he doesn't like smartphones and why he would never buy them for his kids even though, as he points out, everyone has them.

The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory topped the third annual Critics' Choice Television Awards Monday.
In addition to the show's Best Comedy Series victory, The Big Bang Theory stars Simon Helberg and Kaley Cuoco also won acting awards for their supporting turns. Cuoco tied with Eden Sher of The Middle.
Two battered, tragic warriors meet face to face before their climactic skirmish, and there's at least one thing they can agree upon (besides the desire to kill each other): "There is no justice. Not in this world." What, you were expecting a happy ending to Starz' bloody breakout hit Spartacus? (Apologies if that's a spoiler.)
The series finale (Friday, 9/8c) justifies this last season's subtitle, War of the Damned, with a truly epic clash of historic titans. It's up to its bared knees in graphic gore as usual, but the finale is steeped even further in stirring demonstrations and declarations of honor, sacrifice and a willingness to die for the cause of freedom. "Whatever happens ... we decide our fates, not you," proclaims Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), leader of the outnumbered slave army, during his secret meeting with Roman "Imperator" Crassus (Simon Merrells). Unlike past seasons, when the Roman antagonists were mostly craven dupes, neither Crassus nor his second-in-command Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance) are fools — but neither is Spartacus, who still has some bold and unexpected maneuvers up his shield during this primal and visceral encounter of fire, blood and literal and metaphorical guts.

Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz
Soul searching doesn't come easily for a character as clinical, rational and emotionally aloof as Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel), but near-death experiences have a way of waking people up to what's important in life. Doesn't hurt that this is a Big Sweeps Month dictating Big Stunts on long-running shows, an opportunity for Fox's Bones (8/7c) to try its latest change of pace: a mystical trip into a heaven-like netherworld for this non-believer, prompted by a shooting in the lab that leaves Bones fighting for life.
