Over its first two seasons, Showtime comedy ‘House of Lies’ has been raking in critical acclaim like Santa Claus rakes in letters from children. Lead actor Don Cheadle was nominated for two straight Emmy Awards, and has won both a Golden Globe and an NAACP Image Award for his work. Now, the once and future War Machine is preparing to enter an arena that neither he or his co-star Kristen Bell have ever dared tackle before: live improv comedy.
As part of Showtime’s building hype campaign for ‘House of Lies’ third season premiere in January, the network announced today that the show’s regular cast (as well as Season 3 guest stars Lauren Lapkus, Ryan Gaul, and Eugene Cordero) will stage what is an essentially a live, completely unscripted ‘House of Lies’ episode.
The special was taped in front of a live audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles earlier this month, and will (in a first for Showtime) actually premiere online prior to its first airing on cable. The program will be available to view on Showtime’s website, the network’s YouTube channel, and ‘House of Lies’ official Facebook page next Monday. It will debut on Showtime the following night, Dec. 31, at 10/9c. That should make for a fun way for fans to kick off the new year.
‘House of Lies’ premieres its 12-episode third season on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10/9c.December 23, 2013 at 2:16 pm #308131
A single top ten mention—oh, it is just raking in the critical acclaim.December 23, 2013 at 2:24 pm #308132
Remember — Kristen Bell is supporting Don Cheadle. There doesn’t need to be a female lead. It’s not category fraud.January 6, 2014 at 9:59 am #308133
The season 3 premiere is now online, so it’s time for the plot summary, too:

their new coworkers. Clyde struggles in his new position at Kinsley &

nifty moves to win an account with the Department of Defense. Sarah
tells Doug she wants to have a baby. Also, Clyde witnesses Monica
push a junior analyst a bit too far.January 21, 2014 at 8:20 pm #308135
Maybe it’s time for you to get on board this season. The show is stronger than it was, and lead and supporting actress is much more defined than ever. And this:
House of Lies’ season 3 premiere brought in the series’ best ratings ever, attracting 1.19 million viewers on January 12. That number is up 43 percent from its season one average.January 24, 2014 at 2:11 pm #308136
Showtime has reversed course and will air original episodes of its series “Shameless”,” “House of Lies” and “Episodes” next Sunday opposite Fox’s coverage of the Super Bowl.
The premium cable network had planned to air encores of its Sunday skeins against the big game, which is expected to draw well over 100 million viewers, but saw an opening when HBO opted to take the night off. Showtime also has been pleased with the performance of its Sunday shows, and doesn’t want viewers to get out of the weekly rhythm. It also notes roughly 70% of the network’s subscribers opt to watch Showtime series on a time-shifted basis – a number that could be even higher on Feb. 2.
According to Showtime, “Shameless” is averaging 5.4 million weekly viewers across platforms. “House of Lies” is averaging 3 million, and “Episodes” about 2 million.January 24, 2014 at 5:23 pm #308137
Awesome, I loved the first season of this show, but been so busy lately that HOL and Episodes got lost in the gap of my tv schedules, planing to catch up on it someday, Will I lose important stuff if I skip season 2 of House of Lies right up to 3??January 24, 2014 at 6:15 pm #308138
Was losing interest in HoL last season, and I just caught part of the premier of season three, and decided I’m out. I will continue to watch Episodes, though. For some reason, that show has grown on me. But just can’t deal with HoL anymore.January 26, 2014 at 4:18 am #308139
Episode 3.3: Boom!
Written by David Walpert; directed by Stephen Hopkins
Marty and Jeannie pit rival health food grocery store chains against the other, but things don’t go quite as planned. Changes at Galweather/Stearn’s top management terrify Jeannie, and Clyde’s already brutal work situation with Monica, after being stabbed by Christy, is turned up a notch when he’s forced to work out of her home.February 2, 2014 at 9:41 am #308140
I think it was decided once and for all who the lead actress on House of Lies is vs. the supporting one in last week’s terrific episode 😉
Written by David Walpert; directed by Don Cheadle
brothers hire Marty to help expand their designer clothing
empire, but have very different ideas about what its future should
look like. Jeannie defines the role she will play in her new position
while Clyde’s frustration with Monica make him turn to Marty for a
lifeline.February 2, 2014 at 6:39 pm #308141
This is the one with Ben Scwartz right? I thought it was called House of Pies.February 2, 2014 at 7:45 pm #308142
