Shameless, in its second season, is Showtime's No. 2 rated show (Dexter holds the No.1 spot). William H. Macy stars in the drama as a working-class father of a Chicago family. Emmy Rossum plays his daughter who keeps the home together while Macy's character is out gallivanting and drinking.
House of Lies, starring Don Cheadle, debuted on Jan. 8 as the network's second highest-rated freshman premiere. The dark comedy follows Cheadle's character, Marty Kaan, a management consultant who will stop at nothing to get business deals done.
