The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
Sure, his Emmy-nominated series won’t air this year, but that doesn’t take away from C.K.’s enduring influence as television’s most coveted (and darkly relatable) voice in comedy, and he is a calling card for FX’s comedy brand. With a career total of 25 Emmy nominations and four wins, C.K., 46, has thrived at FX: Ratings have increased each season (its third-season premiere audience of 1.4 million was double the viewers compared with the previous year), and there has been plenty of critical acclaim for his one-man-band routine in the autobiographical series about a shlubby divorced dad who performs stand-up comedy. Add these accolades to C.K.’s elusive celebrity, and he’s the guy every cable network wishes they had and many comedians wish they were.
