Watch Californication


Californication follows the life and times of best-selling novelist Hank Moody as he tries to find happiness in the endless sunshine and blue skies of Los Angeles. The writer, originally from New York City, spends his days partying, driving around in his classic Porsche, meeting beautiful California women, and hanging out with his socially awkward agent, and best friend, Charlie Runkle. But life as America's bad-boy novelist isn't always sweet.

Hank's only calling in life, besides writing, is to reunite with his family, made up of his beloved ex-girlfriend Karen Van Der Beek and their daughter, Becca. Although Hank only wishes the best for them, his constant antics and self destructive nature always seem to get in the way of him keeping them happy, often leading to heartbreaking results. Even with the best of intentions, Hank just can't seem to catch a break.

Hank's stylish ways and witty humor are complimented by the eclectic cast of characters he runs into and situations he finds himself in. From writing a biography for a legendary rockstar producer, to having his bestselling novel turned into a romantic comedy he loathes, to helping a gangster rap celebrity write a TV series, it's impossible to know what Hank will find himself involved in next, but one thing always stands true; it's bound to be a messy situation, and a testament to just how far Hank can be pushed before he loses his trademark cool.

Filled with hilarious lines, memorable quotes, and often heartbreaking twists, Californication keeps you watching and waiting for the next episode, not just to see what Hank will get himself into, but to see if he will finally get his personal demons under control, not just for his own sake, but for that everyone he loves.

Showtime Picks Its Shows for Renewal

Fans of Showtime should be happy to see that, due to positive ratings, renewals were a no-brainer for several of their favorite series. Unlike many freshman shows who have been tanking, “Shameless,” “House of Lies,” and “Californication” will all be coming back to happy audiences. Showtime executive David Nevins said of the decisions, “‘Californication,’ ‘House of Lies,’ and ‘Shameless’ possess highly distinctive comedic voices, and given that all three continue to grow their audience season after season, the pick-up decision was easy.

Showtime Renews 3 Big Shows, Including 'Californication'

Good news today for you fans of the fine comedies on "Showtime," as the network went on a renewal spree today. The network's executives must have been in a good mood, as three shows, one of them fairly unproven, were renewed for another year. "Californication" was the longest-running show to get the go-ahead, as the veteran comedy has been renewed for a sixth season. The show, which stars David Duchovny as a sometimes-womanizing and sometime-lovesick writer, has been improving in the ratings every year, now averaging about 3 million viewers a week in total.

'Californication': Watch the Season 5 Premiere Right Here!

If you, like so many of us out there, miss out on Showtime's fine programming because your cable company charges you a fortune for it (and let's face it, sometimes you just need to prioritize and get HBO first), you may have missed all the big premieres this Sunday for the network, including "Shameless," "House of Lies" and "Californication." But wait! Showtime, in its infinite generosity, bestowed upon us a free weekend of programming, mostly likely assuming that we would get hooked on their comedies (or at least want to see Emmy Rossum naked every week).

Report: Which TV Shows Get Naked First? (Hint: Not 'True Blood')

It's a well-known fact that when you sign up for a premium cable channel such as Showtime, Starz or HBO, you're going to be able to enjoy at least two things you won't be able to see elsewhere on TV: f-bombs, and boobs. The latter is the subject of an interesting study performed by New York Magazine, which compiles a list of the major premium cable shows in order of how soon into the first episode they show nudity. All of the usual suspects are on the list--"Game of Thrones," "True Blood," "Spartacus: Blood and Sand"--but a few surprising entries top the list.
