Shameless: ratings information

Showtime TV Show Ratings (updated 4/21/15)

showtime-tv-show-ratings-24Since Showtime is a pay-for-view cable channel, the execs aren’t tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels. However, they still have to run programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We’ll have to wait and see.

Scripted Showtime shows listed: The Affair, Californication, Dexter, Episodes, Homeland, House of Lies, Masters of Sex, Nurse Jackie, Penny Dreadful, Ray Donovan, Shameless, and Web Therapy.

Last updated: Most recent ratings for Nurse Jackie added.

Showtime TV show Shameless


In this dramatic TV series, Chicago's Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) is the proud single dad of six independent and resourceful kids. A hopeless alcoholic, Frank can usually be found at the bar spending what little money the family has, scheming on how to beat the system to support his addictions, or passed out on the floor. His latest meal ticket is his agoraphobic neighbor Sheila (Joan Cusack), who keeps him housed and well fed as long as he submits to her outrageous sexual domination. But if Sheila comes to terms with her phobia, she may be moving on and Frank may be moving out.
