Louis C.K.’s last standup special Live at the Beacon theater was wildly successful and paved the way for other comics to release their own albums online, but there’s a hiccup in the practice of self-publishing: specials only qualify for Emmys if they air on television. And who doesn’t want an Emmy? It’s a beautiful gold flying lady that gives you career validation and affirmation every time you look at it! So C.K.’s special will air on FX, which he noted will also function “as a commercial” for buying it online. Not that he really needs a commercial, but sure, it can’t hurt!
