What’s On TV This Week: ‘Louie’ Is Back

This week, we say goodbye to another season of Workaholics, we get to go behind the scenes of Parks and Recreation, and we welcome back some of our favorite shows. Monday, Comedy Central premieres Sleight of Mouth where Justin Willman combines comedy and magic, and on Tuesday, Sundance goes behind the scenes of Parks and Recreation with its first episode of Behind the Story with the Paley Center. Wednesday on Comedy Central, Workaholics ends its fifth season with an episode where the guys remember their first day at TelAmeriCorp. Thursday, it’s the premiere of The Comedians on FX starring Josh Gad and Billy Crystal, right after Louie premieres its fifth season. Saturday, be sure to catch Taraji P. Henson host SNL on NBC, and Kevin Hart Presents: Plastic Cup Boyz on Comedy Central. Sunday, Amy Schumer hosts the MTV Movie Awards while HBO has the new seasons of Silicon Valley and Veep, and Cartoon Network premieres season three of China, IL. Finally, John Oliver wraps up the week on HBO’s Last Week Tonight.

In late night, Louis C.K. and Julia Louis-Dreyfus visit Fallon, and Billy Gardell, Ricky Gervais, Amy Schumer, and Joe Zimmerman are on Conan. Rainn Wilson, Rob Dorddry, Tig Notaro, and Josh Gad stop by Corden, and Keith Alberstadt is on Meyers.
