Cloo Classics Olympics August 2012 Has Happy Days, Get Smart and More; FX Renews Louie for 4th Season, Anger Management Likely Will Get Season 2

We all know that the day of the opening of the Summer 2012 Olympics, Cloo aired a Cloo Classics Olympics marathon of many classic sitcoms to start their Cloo Classics Olympics... now as we promised over a month ago, we have the rest of the classic schedule for you during the Olympics. Yesterday saw the launch of Cloo Classics that will air for the next two weeks on weekdays. Mondays (July 30 and Aug. 6) will feature a Cloo Classics marathon of MacGyver beginning at 6:00am ET/3:00am PT on both days. On Tuesdays, (July 31 and Aug. 7), we have a Cloo Classics Olympics marathon featuring 24-hours of T.J. Hooker beginning at 6:00am ET/3:00am PT on both days. On Wednesdays, August 1 and 8, it's a Cloo Classics Olympics marathon featuring 24-hours of the '70s series Charlie's Angels beginning at 6:00am ET/3:00am PT on both days. Then on Thursday (Aug. 2 and Aug. 9), we have a Cloo Classics Olympics marathon of Mannix at also 24-hours beginning 6:00am ET/3:00am PT. The week ends with a classic sitcom marathon just like the previous Friday during the Opening Ceremonies. We once again get Paramount sitcoms The Odd Couple, Bosom Buddies, Taxi, Mork & Mindy, Laverne & Shirley, Happy Days, Family Ties and Get Smart on Fridays, Aug. 3 and Aug. 10.
So if you're not into the Olympic Games, then NBC-owned Cloo Classics Olympics is the way to go every weekday until the summer games are over. And the monthly Cloo Classic marathon will air on Saturday, August 25 featuring Get Smart, Mannix and Charlie's Angels, so be sure to catch that as well!


Louie

FX has ordered 13 episodes of its hit comedy Louie for its fourth season. The current third season of Louie has eight all new episodes remaining this season airing Thursdays at 10:30 PM ET/PT. Louie will conclude with a special one-hour season finale on Thursday, September 27. Louie is a comedy filtered through the observational humor of Louis C.K. Each episode puts a spotlight on Louis' hectic life as a successful stand-up comedian and newly single father raising his two daughters in New York City.

Stay tuned for news on a pick-up for Charlie Sheen's sitcom Anger Management for a second season (probably for 90 episodes). It is expected that his father Martin Sheen will join the series as his father if there is a second season. Martin Sheen will guest star this season on the ninth episode airing Aug. 16. Anger Management airs Thursdays at 9:30pm through Thursday, August 23. FX will air a marathon of the entire first season of its new hit series Anger Management, running all ten episodes back-to-back on Thursday, Sept. 6 from 6-11pm. Charlie Sheen stars as a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. Prior to his career as a therapist, he was a stalled minor league baseball prospect whose road to the majors was sidetracked by his own struggle with anger issues. Thriving on the chaos in his life while still battling his own anger issues, his life is complicated by his relationships with his own therapist/best friend, an ex-wife with a positive outlook but poor choice in men, and their 13-year-old daughter with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
