    The article’s title is worded strangely.

  2. usanhasbestshows says:

    yeah great news for great shows

  3. Helena says:

    I hope the Jimmy/Steve/Estefania storyline doesn’t continue into next season.

    • Chris says:

      I agree. I’m fine with it for now but they shouldn’t drag it on. It’s taking away from the other awesome story lines

    LOVE House of Lies. Yay!

  5. Tran says:

    There’s a reason why House of Lies got renewed because of Don Cheadle’s Golden Globe victory.

    • Kyle Thomas says:

      Thats suggesting that they wouldnt have picked it up if he didnt win? Duchovny hasnt even been up for a Globe since like the first of second season of Cali, and thats getting renewed as well. Winning globes doesnt mean you get renewed, its the viewers that determine that.

    Love the Gallagher family shenanigans

    House of Lies is even better this season in no small measure thanks to Kristen Bell’s character becoming more prominent and even more dysfunctional. Bell’s an amazing actress and excellent against Cheadle who is awesome as Kaan

  9. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Hurray for Shameless!

  10. Polly says:

    i like duchovny but…come on! californication is going downhill episode after episode. let it go!

      Obviously many disagree with you so that’s why it stays on… With all the multiple airings and On Demand and Online access, lots of opportunities to watch.. I never can understand why people want to dump shows??? Especially Premium networks have tons of real estate to fill.. People just love these perverted characters…

  11. Unless those shows are sharing the same season, the grammar of the headline is very wrong.

  12. Mari says:

    I’m happy for Kristen Bell!

  13. MissHeels says:

    Shameless!!! YAY! House of Lies too! So happy right now, love both.
