While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Louis C.K. is making us wait for more "Louie," but not for more Louis - he has a new hour-long comedy special in the works with HBO that should arrive in 2013. [CinemaBlend]
  • Barbara Walters was looking forward to talking to Lindsay Lohan, apparently. On "The View" Monday, Walters moped a bit (passive aggresively) about Lohan pulling out of her "20/20" interview and heading for Leno instead. "If they'd said to me, 'You know, Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions that you might ask,'" Walters told her "View" co-hosts, "I wouldn't feel quite as disappointed as I do today." [TMZ]
  • "America's Best Dance Crew" has danced its way right into cancellation. [EW]
  • If your ideal New Year's Eve involves a mashup between Coldplay and Jay-Z, you should consider getting something like the real thing. The two acts are teaming up for an NYE show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center this year. [LAT]
  • We've heard that Justin Bieber will perform Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River" while out on a tour from time to time, but busting out an acoustic version while rumors persist that he and Selena Gomez have broken up isn't exactly subtle. [HuffPo]
