louieFans are glad they didn’t have to wait too long for the return of Louis C.K.’s comedy series (he writes and directs all the episodes). His brand of comedy may not be for everyone, but those who enjoy C.K.’s unique blend of stand-up and uncomfortable everyman humor are sure to be in awkward bliss. 10:33 p.m. Thursday, April 23, on FX

‘Jurassic World’

Movie trailers for would-be summer blockbusters seem to pop up daily this time of year, but this one does it for me. See you in line.


Carpool Karaoke

This is one of my favorite things James Corden has done since taking over “The Late Late Show.”


I just need to go lie down now.

‘Weird Loners’


In television’s seemingly endless attempt to duplicate the success of “Friends,” here’s another comedy about “mid-30-somethings who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives” when they move into a town house in Queens, N.Y. The “friends” are played by Becki Newton, Zachary Knighton, Nate Torrence and Meera Rohit Kumbhani. I’ll just say it: If this show tanks, get Knighton and the gang back together and bring back “Happy Endings” (nope, I’m still not over it). 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, on Fox.

Coming June 21.


105143_10037bThe 30th edition of this long-running reality competition is well under way, and as of last week the remaining contestants had merged into one big (and not so happy) tribe. Now is the time for scrambling, the forging of new alliances and almost weekly blind-sides at tribal council. And this all happens — as always — under the watchful eye of smirking and eternally khaki-ed host Jeff Probst. If I may quote a co-worker (and fellow fan): “Don’t these people ever watch the show and learn how to play?” 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 8, on CBS.
