Showtime is preparing a triple treat for viewers in early April. The network has announced that it will premiere the new season of "", "" and "" on Sunday, April 8, in what entertainment president David Nevins called a "triple header."

The medical drama comedy, which features as a drug-addicted nurse, will lead at 9 P.M. Meanwhile, the -starring series and the drama will follow at 9:30 P.M. and 10 P.M. respectively.

Giving a tidbit to the next season of "Nurse Jackie", Nevins said at the TCA winter press tour, "I wanted her to start facing some consequences of her actions, and she does in a big way. She's absolutely not in the same place as she is in the last seasons. The feel of the episodes is tweaked."

Meanwhile, executive producer of "Borgias", James Flynn, said at the panel that he sees the historical fiction series as running "ideally four seasons." He added, "That would be the plan. That would be the ambition. Of course, we can always go beyond that with Pope Julius and his reign."
