Dexter switched to the F23. I'm not sure about the other shows.

Showtime's mandate is that shows originate on digital formats (rather than film), not necessarily a specific camera. As an example, the upcoming program "United States of Tara" is shot on the Genesis. And, as previously mentioned, Dexter is on the F23. I believe Californication is as well. At one point, Weeds was going to use the Red, although I'm not sure if that actually happened.
