Doc Johnson Appears on Showtime Series ‘Shameless’

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Doc Johnson products have appeared on two episodes of the current season of “Shameless”, Showtime’s hit series starring William H. Macy, Joan Cusack and Emmy Rossum.

In “Shameless” episode four, “The Helpful Gallaghers,” characters Sheila (Joan Cusack) and Jody (Zach McGowan) are elated to have just become parents/guardians to a newborn baby boy. But along with the joys of parenting an infant, their once lively sex life has gone from “active” to “nonexistent.” In order to bring a little spice back into the bedroom and revive their sexual intimacy, Sheila suggests the use of sex toys. At first, she tempts Jody with the iconic Doc Johnson Hard Rammer.

“Everyone here at Doc Johnson is thrilled with the exposure we’ve gotten through Showtime’s top show, ‘Shameless,’” says Victoria Bowman-Steinour, director of marketing and public relations. “When the series approached us last year for product and let us know that we would be featured in several episodes of Season 3, we were incredibly flattered. We’re looking forward to seeing how the storyline unravels as this season continues.”

The network ratings for “Shameless” topped 3.8 million viewers in 2012. Ratings for the current season have reported 2.6 million viewers for recent episodes.
