0116 Community Shameless

With the debut of the second season of Showtime's Shameless, Showtime is sponsoring the Walk of Shame-less. The Jan. 18-22 athletic event will have six teams of three walking nonstop on treadmills in New York, while Showtime challenges participants with Shameless trivia. Not only will the winning team get $50,000, the network will donate $1 per minute to each team's charity of choice for every minute they walk during the contest.

For more information, go to Showtime's Walk of Shame-less Website.
