SHAMELESS had its Best Night Ever with 2.8 million viewers for the night, surpassing episode six earlier this season. Season-to-date, SHAMELESS season 4 averages 5.7 million weekly viewers, up +8% vs. last season through the same time frame, and on track to rate as its highest-rated season ever.

House of Lies is the edgy, provocative hit Showtime comedy series starring Don Cheadle (Iron Man 3) in his twice Emmy®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning performance as elite consultant Marty Kaan, a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. This quest is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his "Pod" of co-workers: sexy, whip-smart protégé and co-conspirator Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and underlings Clyde (Emmy winner Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). At home, he's forced to juggle unwanted advice from his psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy winner Glynn Turman), drama from his demented ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri), all while being a loving father to his gender-fluid teenage son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.). The series is based on the hit tell-all book from best-selling author Martin Kihn (House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time). Produced by SHOWTIME, House of Lies is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Stephen Hopkins, Don Cheadle and David Walpert also serve as executive producers.
