Macy and Golden Globe(R) nominee Emmy Rossum, along with Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Noel Fisher and Emma Greenwell, and special guest star Joan Cusack. Season four will pick up a few weeks after season three left off - with the Gallaghers braving another brutal Chicago winter and waiting on the medical fate of their flawed, permanently pickled patriarch, Frank (Macy). With Fiona (Rossum) in a stable job and relationship, and Lip (White) enrolled in college, can the Gallaghers finally realize the middle class American dream? Based on the long-running hit UK series, SHAMELESS is executive produced by Emmy(R) Award-winning television and film producer John Wells, Andrew Stearn, Mark Mylod and Nancy Pimental. Wells developed the series for American television. Paul Abbott serves as executive consultant.

HOUSE OF LIES is the edgy, provocative hit SHOWTIME comedy series starring Don Cheadle in his twice Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role 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 co-conspirator Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and underlings Clyde (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.). We start season 3 as the wreckage from Marty's decision to launch his own firm has spilled onto the Pod - the almighty quartet is disbanded. But while Marty is preoccupied with hustling up new clients, his former mentee Jeannie is channeling her inner Kaan and making big moves in his absence. With everything now turned upside-down, it's anyone's game and anyone's guess as to who will come out on top - at work and at play. Season three guest stars include Grammy(R) Award winner T.I. (American Gangster, Identity Thief), Mekhi Phifer (Lie to Me, ER), Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings, Scrubs) and Daniel Stern (Home Alone, The Wonder Years). Previous guest stars Griffin Dunne ("The Rainmaker"), Bess Armstrong ("Julianne") and Jenny Slate ("Sarah") will also return this season. Season three of HOUSE OF LIES premieres on Sunday, January 12 at 10 p.m. To watch the season three premiere of HOUSE OF LIES, go to: http://s.sho.com/1cHgDTF.

EPISODES stars Matt LeBlanc in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning role as a fictionalized version of himself. At the start of the third season, Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig), the English couple whose hit U.K. sitcom is remade for U.S. audiences and corrupted beyond recognition, are back together but they soon discover that it's not so easy to heal old wounds. Things get no easier for Matt this year as his career and ego continue to be pummeled. The series also stars Mircea Monroe, Kathleen Rose Perkins and John Pankow. Season three's new guest stars include Chris Diamantopoulos (24) in a season-long arc; Roger Bart (Revenge) appears in four episodes as LeBlanc's agent; along with Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution) as a family member of Morning's (Monroe). A SHOWTIME and BBC co-production, the series comes from visionary creators David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You). Season three of EPISODES returns Sunday, January 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. To watch the season three premiere of EPISODES, go to: http://s.sho.com/1iJIIlu.
