And for fans of “Shameless,” “House of Lies” and “Californication,” the network has good news as each of them is getting renewed.

“Shameless,” the Emmy-nominated program about our favorite dysfunctional family, has delivered strong ratings with 4.75 million weekly viewers. This makes the program, which features William H. Macy, the network’s No. 2 show behind “Dexter.”

Thanks to a strong start, “House of Lies” is also getting the pick up. The program, which stars Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, averages nearly 4 million weekly viewers.

And then there’s Hank Moody (David Duchovny). The long-running series “Californication” will offer viewers another season looking at the screwed up life of the self-absorbed, hedonistic writer. Its sixth season will begin filming later in 2012.
