Airdate: House of Lie$

US dramedy House of Lie$ which was due to screen on TEN in August will screen on ONE later this month.

With a cast including Josh Lawson, Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, it  follows a group of management consultants who stop at nothing to get business deals done.

Based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time, written by Martin Kihn, this is a Showtime series which premiered in the US in January. It has already been renewed for a second season.

“The Gods Of Dangerous Financial Instruments”
Marty & The Pod are self-loathing management consultants from a top tier firm who travel around the world using any means necessary to get their way.

  1. It’s a double episode of House of Lies now.

    Californication has been dropped. I noticed that Ten were having to edit and censor bits to meet the ACMA’s standards. Maybe the censor was one of the positions axed.

    With The Newsroom, The Glades and Black Mirror finished and Nikita gone from Mondays I will not have to watch anything.

  2. House of Lies was intended as a stop gap until the new episodes of Hawaii 5-O were available. It isn’t that great and would struggle to rate 400k in the current climate. They have too many new shows failing already.

    So instead they will add to the congestion late on Monday night and hope that results in a few more people watching Hawaii 5-O rather than recording it.

    My question is what are Ten going to do with the last nine episodes of The Finder which was dumped for House of Lies?

  3. I was looking forward to watching this, and I agree that Monday night is already packed full of things to watch. Luckily they repeat Four Corners and Media Watch ( or iView) and I have enough recording capacity for everything else.

  4. This was acclaimed as the Show of the Week in SMH’s Guide when originally scheduled on TEN back in August.

    Agree with Jar B – why waste it so late on a already congested Monday night?

    Does this decision have anything to do with the Research Expert leaving the building…?
