The last time Louis C.K. was at the Emmys was over a decade ago, and even though he took home an award, he wasn't in the limelight.
"I was a writer on 'The Chris Rock Show' ... and I was in this spot, behind 10 other people," the comedian said backstage in front of a room full of reporters after winning two awards -- one for comedy writing on "Louie" and the other for writing on his stand-up special.
One of the backstage journalists asked Louis C.K. why he thinks his latest television show has resonated with viewers more than his previous efforts, including the short-lived "Lucky Louie."
"I'm better than I was before, and hopefully I'll be better later too," he admitted, adding that being in New York with a "better group of people" has helped his new FX program.
