please be good tv...

it should be....with Nick Kroll and Paul Scheer right?
Louis CK, although one of the best stand ups out there kind of had a pile of hot garbage of a tv show.
hopefully this one wil be better.

FX is getting serious about its comedy slate, giving series orders to two half-hour laffers.

"The League" revolves around a group of longtime guy friends who participate in a fantasy football league. "Louie" stars comic Louis CK as a standup comic and newly single dad raising two daughters in New York City.

Landgraf described "League" as a kind of suburban-set "Sex and the City" for men. The semi-improv show revolves around the lives of a group of college friends as they’re forced to take on more responsibilities as husbands and fathers.

Skein was created by the husband-and-wife duo of Jeff Schaffer ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and Jackie Marcus Schaffer, who also exec produce. Ensemble cast includes Mark Duplass, Steve Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer and Jon Lajoie.
