SHAMELESS - premiering Sunday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET
Season 4 picks up a few weeks after the last season ended, with the Gallaghers braving another brutal Chicago winter and waiting on the medical fate of their flawed, permanently pickled patriarch, Frank (Academy Award® nominee William. H. Macy). With Fiona (Golden Globe® Award nominee Emmy Rossum) in a stable job and relationship, and Lip (Jeremy Allen White) enrolled in college, can the Gallaghers finally realize the middle-class American dream?

HOUSE OF LIES - premiering Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10 p.m. ET
Starring Emmy® Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Don Cheadle as Marty Kaan, Season 3 begins in the wreckage of Marty's decision to launch his own firm, disbanding the almighty quartet. Marty is preoccupied with hustling up new clients, while his former mentee Jeannie (Kristen Bell) channels her inner Kaan to make big moves in his absence. Guest stars this season include Eliza Coupe (HAPPY ENDINGS), Mekhi Phifer (LIE TO ME), and three-time Grammy® Award-winning musical artist T.I.

EPISODES - premiering Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET
In Season 3 of the Golden Globe Award-winning series, Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig), an English couple whose hit U.K. sitcom is remade for U.S. audiences and corrupted beyond recognition, are back together; however, they soon discover it's not so easy to heal old wounds. Things do not get any easier for Matt LeBlanc (FRIENDS) this season as his career and ego continue to be pummeled. Guest stars this season include: Chris Diamantopoulos (24) in a season-long arc as the new head of the network; Roger Bart (REVENGE) appears in four episodes as Matt's agent; along with Tracy Spiridakos (REVOLUTION) as a family member of actress Morning Randolph (Mircea Monroe).
