House of Lies
Here we have the kind of series that didn't blow the roof off its competition in ratings, but deservedly earned its forthcoming second season with whip-smart writing and spot-on performances. Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell lead the cast of management consultants willing to lie, cheat and backstab their way to a closed case. No, not a one of these cutthroat businesspeople is necessarily likable, but that's what makes watching them so funny -- we're laughing at them, not with them. Oh, and make sure you have a bar of soap handy, because you may want to wash your own mouth out after a couple episodes.
