Do not make any plans for the night of January 13, Showtime subscribers. You'll be busy. The network has assigned this date to the season premieres of three returning series: Shameless, House of Lies, and Californication.
The hourlong William H. Macy-led dramedy series Shameless will return to Showtime for its third season on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 9 PM. The show, based on an eponymous British program, stars Macy as an alcoholic single father of six self-sustaining children in a working class Chicago neighborhood.
At 10 PM, House of Lies will kick off its second season. The comedy stars Don Cheadle as master management consultant Marty Kahn, leading a professional team comprised of Kristen Bell, John Lawson, and Parks and Recreation fan favorite Ben Schwartz (dialing back his Jean Ralphio shtick just a bit).
Finally, at 10:30 PM, Californication heads back to the network for a sixth season. Star David Duchovny returns with a story arc that will reportedly involve Hank Moody with the writing of a rock musical.
