Shameless has always gotten the short end of the stick. In any other previous TV landscapes, it might get its due. But with so much to watch, it's too often neglected. Shameless - its sixth season premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday on Showtime - perpetrates two great sins that keep it out of the Golden Age of TV conversation. The first is it's not perfect. It can be uneven. Characters can be written into corners. Its star - William H. Macy - was miscast in the lead as the ultimate deadbeat, formerly inebriated dad Frank Gallagher, who also ends up being the least interesting of his entire clan.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. These days, always-amusing Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher is more reliable at giving good quotes than at writing great new songs. He recently criticized Jay Z and other owners of the Tidal music-streaming service for their superhero complex ("Do these people think they're the [expletive] Avengers?").

Lenape girls' lacrosse coach Jill McCarthy says she can always count on senior stars Natalie Peel and Shannon Gallagher. They're dependable. They're reliable. They're the Alpha and Omega of the team's offense and defense. "They provide a sense of calm and leadership at both ends of the field," McCarthy said. Peel, who scored seven goals in a 17-7 victory over Rancocas Valley in the season opener for both teams Thursday, is the spark of the Indians' attack. Gallagher, a defender, anchors the team's back line.

WAS SUNDAY night news night around the TV set for the Gallagher clan when John Jr. was growing up in Wilmington? Maybe not then, but it probably is now. This Sunday night marks the second-season premiere of HBO's drama "The Newsroom," in which Gallagher portrays the cable-news show's senior producer, James Harper. As a kid, the now-29-year-old actor recalled recently, it wasn't so much TV news that impressed him. He preferred the weather, as forecast by a popular Channel 10 meteorologist.
