Kicking things off at 9/8c is Shameless. The show’s third season is set several months after the season 2 finale and sees the Gallaghers seeking their own unique version of the “American Dream.” Jimmy has moved into the Gallagher home, and Fiona soon realizes that a GED will only get her so far and that a long-term relationship with Jimmy isn’t as fulfilling as she expected.
Airing immediately after Shameless is the new season of House of Lies at 10/9c. In season 2, “The Pod” – especially Marty and Jeannie – must deal with the fall-out from the big merger showdown. Meanwhile, Marty is thrown by the arrival of a new ‘frenemy’ at work and by Roscoe, who decides to move in with his lunatic mother, Monica (Dawn Olivieri).
Californication will premiere behind House of Lies at 10:30/9:30c. In the show’s sixth season, Hank Moody continually struggles to be a good father to his college-aged daughter Becca, while still carrying a torch for her mother, and his ex-girlfriend, Karen. Joining the cast this season is Maggie Grace (Lost) as the infamous rock groupie Faith, who develops an unconventional relationship with Hank. International comedy star Tim Minchin is also joining the series as Atticus Fetch, a mad-as-a-hatter rock star who will write the music for the Broadway production of Hank’s hit novel. Fetch enlists the ever-cynical Hank to collaborate on the project, which he calls “…a rock opera about love conquering all.”
