Showtime Announces Winter 2014 Premiere Dates

Showtime is gearing up for their winter premieres including Shameless season four, House of Lies season three and Episodes season three. Together, the three series will make up Showtime’s Sunday lineup beginning January 12th at 9PM with the premiere of Shameless, followed by the premieres of House of Lies at 10PM and Episodes at 10:30PM.

Shameless will pick up just a few weeks after the end of season three with the Gallaghers facing another brutal Chicago winter. Fiona and her siblings will be waiting to hear news on their father’s deteriorating health, but things will otherwise be stable for the family for once. Lip is in college, Fiona’s in a normal relationship and has a steady job. Don’t expect things to remain calm for long though, the Gallaghers aren’t the Gallaghers if life is easy.

On House of Lies, the Pod will be facing the wreckage left behind by Marty’s decision to start his own firm. Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings), Mekhi Phifer (Lie to Me) and T.I. (Boss) are all set to guest star in season three. Finally, Episodes‘ third season will kick off with Sean and Beverly reunited and Matt LeBlanc’s (fictional) career reaching new lows.

In addition to their original series, Showtime has also announced the premiere dates for several comedy specials and new documentaries. See below for a full schedule of what’s ahead this winter.

F#CK NICK CANNON
In his follow up to his tremendously successful debut comedy special Mr. Showbiz, the wildly popular comic-actor-musician-host responds to anyone who’s ever said, “F#CK NICK CANNON.” A recent health scare has changed how he sees the world and he is here to share his unique perspective on getting older, raising children, and living with his famous wife (Mariah Carey). Nick Cannon doesn’t care what the haters think, and that’s what gives him his hilarious edge. Taped at the River Rock Casino in Vancouver, BC.

Novak, who help them write and perform their own personal stand-up comedy routines.
