After opening its fourth season to solid numbers, FX’s critically acclaimed “Louie” suffered a ratings blow for its second week of new episodes.

“So Did the Fat Lady,” the evening’s 10PM installment, posted a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating with 809,000 viewers. Both numbers were down from the prior week’s 10PM broadcast, which delivered a 0.5 and 941,000 viewers.

“Elevator Part 1,” the second episode, then endured a significant decline to a 0.3 rating with just 679,000 viewers. The previous week’s 10:30PM episode scored a stronger 0.5 with 910,000 total viewers.

“Louie” continues its fourteen-episode fourth season with a pair of installments next week.
