Watch Don Cheadle’s Showtime Show, House of Lies

Showtime has put the full pilot for House of Lies online, though the network bleeped the curse words and blocked the signature cable nudity. (The show sets a new record in our nudity countdown, if that kind of thing matters to you.) Don Cheadle stars as a cutthroat management consultant and boss to Kristen "Veronica Mars" Bell and Ben "Jean-Ralphio" Schwartz, who's balancing his complicated home life, which includes a non-gender-conforming son and a drug-addicted ex-wife. There's a jumpy editing style that'd make NYPD Blue proud, a glitzy smugness right from the Entourage playbook, and freeze frames the show could really do without. Enjoy!
