Showtime has struck gold once again with its newest drama, Shameless. The show centers around a dysfunctional family lead by a hard partying William H. Macy and a heart breakingly responsible Emmy Rossum as Fiona, his oldest daughter. Fiona attempts to care for this motley crew of children as well as her irresponsible father after their mother abandons them. With equal parts humor and raw honesty, Shameless had no other option than to be an instant hit. 

Shameless debuted to a stunning 982,000 viewers, making it the network’s highest rated drama in seven years. Check it out yourself Sundays at 10 ET on Showtime.
