When House of Lies premiered in January, it seemed primed to follow Homeland as a buzzy Showtime hit. It featured Don Cheadle, a bona fide movie star, supported by favorites from Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell), Parks and Recreation (Ben Schwartz), and The Wire (Glynn Turman). And with the Occupy movement still in the news, the show, set in the world of high-stakes management consultants, seemed perfectly timed to offer a glimpse inside the boardrooms (and bedrooms) of the 1 percent.

Instead, with the season two-thirds over, it hasn’t cracked the cultural conversation.
