Never, in my opinion. Poker is a game of information, and by showing you're giving your opponents more information than you absolutely have to give.
Not that I'm completely innocent here - I sometimes show in friendly games just for a giggle, or will occasionally show in a shorthanded game if I think showing a bluff will tilt someone. The latter case here is the only time I can really see showing to possibly be +EV.
