Showtime Announces Premiere Date for Shameless, Californication, House of Lies

Showtime has announced premiere dates for veteran comedy Californication, buzzworthy drama Shameless, and newcomer House of Lies, but there’s a twist of sorts.

They’re all on the same night.

On January 8th, the network will first check up on the Gallagher family on Shameless at 9:00, followed by introducing the world of management consulting on House of Lies at 10:00 and finishing the night out at 10:30 by time warping a few years into the future with Hank Moody and company on Californication. Last year, the network did a similar premiere strategy, only it included Brit-com Episodes instead of House of Lies. No word yet on when Episodes will be premiering, but its order was booted up from 7 to 9 episodes for its second season and co-star Matt LeBlanc recently picked up an Emmy nomination for his role as a parody of himself.

House of Lies stars Don Cheadle as cutthroat management consultant Marty, with Dawn Olivieri as his biggest competition (who is also his drug addicted ex-wife) and Kristen Bell as a sharp co-worker of Marty’s. Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Donis Leonard, Jr., and Glynn Turman round out the cast for the show’s 12 episode first season. The show is based on Martin Kihn’s 2006 book, House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time.

Will you be watching House of Lies when it premieres? What do you think the kids on Shameless will get into next season? How do you think Californication will adapt to its multi-year time jump?
