Denis Leary, Louis CK

If you're the sort that looks for role models on TV, then FX probably isn't your default destination. The network for bad boys (and the not-so-saintly women who often helped make them that way) kicks into high summer gear Tuesday night with the return of the blisteringly bitter Rescue Me (splitting its final season over two years, concluding in 2011 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11). It's joined this year by the not-much-sunnier comedy Louie, which premieres with back-to-back episodes.

Both are quintessentially New York series, finding extremes of very dark humor in the noise and grit and gutter mentality of surviving in the city—although in the case of Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary), the self-destructive wretch at the booze-drenched heart and possible soul of Rescue Me, many could argue that he may have been better off dead.... read more

Is TV ready for Bret Easton Ellis? Ever since the 1985 release of his best-selling tale of L.A. youth-gone-amoral, Less Than Zero, young Hollywood — including television faves like James Van Der Beek, Ian Somerhalder and Austin Nichols — have populated the feature-film adaptations of Ellis' edgy, unsettling novels.

Rescue Me Actors Share Their Top Moments

Rescue Me

The sixth season of Rescue Me will premiere tonight at 10/9c on FX, but the cast has already wrapped filming on this season and next, which will be the last. So no wonder actors John Scurti (Lou) and Adam Ferrara (Needles) are feeling nostalgic.

Scurti compares the chemistry between himself and executive producer/star Denis Leary (Tommy) to some great comedic teams. "I don't know if it's the ghosts of Laurel and Hardy or Ralph and Ed, or Fred and Barney," Scurti tells TV Guide Magazine. "It just kind of works."
