The con is still on. Showtime renewed its half-hour series (a comedy by Emmys definition) House of Lies for a fifth season, the network announced Tuesday.

The fifth season of the series will consist of 10 episodes, down from the normal 12 episodes that made up each of the previous four seasons. Showtime expects Season 5 to air in 2016.

Fall TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?

House of Lies, about a management consultancy firm that will do anything to get business, has reached a fifth season largely on the back of its star Don Cheadle. Cheadle has been nominated for both a Golden Globe and Emmy Award and won the Golden Globe in 2012. Other cast members include Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, and Josh Lawson.

House of Lies wrapped up its fourth season on Sunday.

Russell Crowe: Michael Jackson Prank-Called Me for Years with Terrible Jokes

Apparently Michael Jackson was a real practical joker.

In an interview with The Guardian, Russell Crowe claims that Jackson consistently prank-called him "for two or three f---ing years," after Jackson discovered the fake name Crowe used to check into hotels.

The anecdote raises two very important questions that, sadly, remain unanswered in the article: 1. What name does Russell Crowe use to check into hotels? and 2. How did Jackson discover it?!

But here's what Crowe does reveal about his strange relationship with the late singer - whom he never actually met in person: "It didn't matter where I was. He'd ring up, do this kind of thing, like you did when you were 10, you know. 'Is Mr. Wall there? Is Mrs. Wall there? Are there any Walls there? Then what's holding the roof up? Ha ha.' You're supposed to grow out of doing that, right?"

Crowe previously brought up the bizarre prank calls in a 2013 interview with The Sun.

Michael Jackson. What a character.

FX has renewedThe Americans for a 13-episode fourth season, the network announced Tuesday.

Fall TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?

"Remarkably, this season of The Americans has achieved even greater acclaim than that of its first two seasons," Nick Grad, FX's co-president of original programming, said in a statement. "The series has cemented it status with critics as television's best current drama and arguably the best show on TV, and we couldn't agree more."

Though it's never been a big ratings powerhouse for FX, The Americans - which stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as husband-and-wife KGB spies - is one of the most critically acclaimed dramas on television and has a 92 rating on Metacritic.

The Season 3 finale of The Americans airs Wednesday, April 22 at 10/9c on FX.
