But I'm sure it was before the last time he was on Parks and Rec.

Even in a recent climate whereby consequences for newly surfaced allegations have come swiftly, this was a startling development; C.K.'s long-on-hiatus series Louie had been a key building block in establishing the network's critical credibility, and C.K.'s clout in Hollywood had been another, as he was producing two shows for the network and another two through the network's production offices for other networks.

On Thursday evening, HBO said Louis C.K. would no longer be part of a comedy benefit that it plans to broadcast on November 18.

That's because Adlon has worked creatively with Louis C.K. for years.

Universal's monster cinematic universe, kickstarted by The Mummy, is in trouble
Apparently, there is still hope the Universal monster verse will be revived as it's possible someone could come along and be the new architect.


But on Friday, the "Better Things" creator confirmed the allegations as true.

As Nussbaum reminds us, C.K.'s standup "is not merely confessional... it's also focused on sex and ethics, as well as on questions of decency, fatherhood, masculinity, and, at times, feminism". Specifically, a New York Times article revealed that the comedian masturbated in front of numerous female colleagues, over a period of years. "It's, like, if somebody dropped something disgusting, it's like, a golden piece of material for me for later".

"The market is up", he said.

Pictured: Adlon and C.K. speak onstage during the FX portion of the 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 9, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California. "He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him - "Better Things, ' "Baskets", 'One Mississippi" and 'The Cops'". Three of the women said that he exposed himself and masturbated in front of them, one said that he asked her to watch him masturbate and she refused, and another said that Louis CK masturbated while they were on the phone. "All I know is that, I know about him as being my partner on a show that is the opposite of any of this kind of awful, negative things". Now is the time for him to honestly address the women who have come forth to speak about their painful experiences, a process which he began today with his public statement. They also plan to "remain committed to doing everything we can to ensure that all people work in an environment that is safe, respectful and fair".
