Shameless: Season 8

Original Broadcast Date: January 9, 2011

Oscar® and Emmy® nominee William H. Macy and Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum star in this fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted one-hour series, adapted from the acclaimed British original drama. Chicago-native Frank Gallagher (Macy) is the proud single father of six smart, industrious, independent kids who would be better off without him. When Frank’s not at the bar spending what little money they have, he’s passed out on the floor. Under the supervision of his eldest daughter, Fiona (Rossum), his kids—Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl and Liam—have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.
