Girlfriend Trouble on 'House' (VIDEO)

Girlfriend Trouble on 'House'People are fighting on 'House' (Mon., 8PM ET on Fox). Well, of course they are. Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) is involved, which pretty much inevitably leads to either crankiness or a fight. But in this case, House is starting an argument in order to protect his best friend.

'House' Now Has an iPhone App, Complete With "Appisodes"

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 12th 2010 7:02PM
HouseGood news for all you 'House' fans out there. If you own an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, you can download at no extra charge a special app called 'InHouse' which gives you inside information on the show as well as special "Appisodes" only available on the program. It can be downloaded from the App Store in iTunes.

The "Appisodes" are of a character named Nurse Jeffrey (any relation to 'Nurse Jackie?') and are written by members of the 'House' writing staff. Do I smell a possible spin-off?

This is a cute variation of the popular 'webisode' concept that has been around for many series such as 'Chuck' and 'Smallville.' You'd think a show with science fiction overtones like the aforementioned would be the first to try this concept, but 'House' has origins in Sherlock Holmes so there's enough of a geek factor there for this app to do well.

'House' - 'Private Lives' Recap

Laura Prepon guest stars on
(S06E14) Usually when an episode of a long running show just goes through its tried and true motions, it feels lazy and slapped together. But in the case of 'House,' it makes for some tasty viewing, even with the vivid description of poop.

Note to self: never order the Bangkok Special before sitting down to watch 'House.'

Chase Delves Into Dating, Loses a Bet on 'House' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 8th 2010 11:52PM
House, Wilson, ChaseCould the bromance between House and Wilson become a threesome? They're getting awfully chummy with Chase these days.

On 'House' (Mon., 8PM ET on Fox), House bet Chase that Chase would still land a bunch of phone numbers from girls, even if he dropped his accent, kept mum about being a doc, and generally acted slovenly.

Chase lost the bet. Pay up, bitch. Kind of a sad commentary on the female society, though, isn't it? Are we really that focused on looks?

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest rule breakers

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 28th 2009 10:56AM

Rules are meant to be broken... especially for these ten television characters. For them, the rest of the world has one standard to live by and they have another. It makes them interesting and fun to watch... you just wouldn't necessarily want to be the person having to deal with them because they could drive you to distraction. Here's my ten pack of characters who live in a world of their own, according to no rules except their own. From the not-too-bad to the really bad.

10. Patrick Jane, The Mentalist

You would think that as a consultant to the CBI -- California Bureau of Investigation -- Patrick Jane would be compelled to uphold the rules and regulations of the department. However, Jane is a free spirit when it comes to office protocol. He does his own thing. For instance, bugging the office of a CBI higher-up is definitely not kosher. Jane doesn't care; he did it anyway and will probably get away with it.

What if House stopped being a procedural?

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 23rd 2009 9:08AM
Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory HouesI have a problem with procedurals. I tend to get bored with the same formula week in and week out. And yet, I've been enjoying House for years, despite the incredibly repetitive sequence of events we get every week. The reason for that is because of the brilliance of the character Gregory House, and Hugh Laurie's portrayal of him.

As Jonathan mentioned in his review of House's season premiere, this two-hour trip into the insane asylum broke the procedural formula completely. Not only did we not see House cure any medical ailments, we didn't see the rest of the cast at all, save a quick cameo by Wilson. Instead, we got a character study and a major breakthrough for House.

But a breakthrough is a beginning. What if the show, like the character, had a transformation of its own? How about a medical-based drama instead of a medical procedural? We can still have cases and House diagnosing them, but dump the weekly formula and instead make it about the characters and their lives.

If House's limp is hurting Hugh Laurie, why not fix it?

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 21st 2009 2:06PM
Hugh Laurie is HouseHey, Fox! Would you rather lose Hugh Laurie as the curmudgeon Dr. House, or would you rather risk what could happen to the show if he lost that trademark limp? He's been limping around the set for five years now. He's no spring chicken, and the limp is starting to take such a toll on his body, that Laurie might consider leaving House over it.

"The show might last through to (season) seven, eight or nine, but I don't know if I will because I'm starting to lose my knees," he said. "It's a lot of hip work. There are things going badly wrong." I've been reading for a few years now about how the limp has been affecting Laurie's actual health and physical well-being. I don't see why Fox doesn't just resolve this problem by eliminating the limp.

I know the chronic pain is supposed to be a facet of his character, but it's season six now. The viewers like him and can accept him as he grows and changes. We'd certainly rather deal with a pain-free House than a House-free TV schedule.

Eight of TV's toughest interrogators

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 26th 2009 10:00AM

The fine art of interrogation may seem lost thanks to suspects lawyering up and the Miranda warning. Whatever happened to the days when a snarling cop could throw a perp against a brick wall to get him to squeal? Or a sly questioner could finagle a confession by laying on a guilt trip? Still, there are some very clever, brilliant interrogators plying their trade on these days. In fact, when you look at these eight interrogators, you'll probably agree that they know just how to get to the truth. Here are the eight top interrogators on TV today:

8. Captain James Brass, CSI
Brass is the most "old school" of all these interrogators. He's like Andy Sipowicz from NYPD Blue, only without the violence. Brass talks to suspects with a modicum of respect, but a healthy cynicism. He's seen it all and knows the truth is in there somewhere. He asks questions and waits for them to trip themselves up. When they do, he has them write it down. Despite the laconic attitude, Brass has the brass to get the job done.

Carl Reiner checking in for House's season finale

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 31st 2009 9:03AM
carl reiner ocean'sI adore Carl Reiner. There. I said it. What are you going to do about it? No, seriously, if there's another actor/writer/director/producer in show business who's made me laugh more than Mr. Reiner, I can't think of him/her right now. He's been one of Hollywood's prime time jewels for six decades. So, the news that Carl Reiner is guesting on the House season finale makes me very, very happy.

According to the House powers that be, Mr. Reiner will be a clinic patient at Princeton Plainsboro, and his interaction is slated to be with Dr. Cuddy. Good for Lisa Edelstein!

TV Squad Ten: Most outrageous characters on TV

by Debra McDuffee, posted Jan 6th 2009 11:02AM
Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother

Random House defines outrageous as highly unusual or unconventional; extravagant; remarkable. It's as though they've been watching TV, and wrote their definition to fit some of the crazy characters on television shows today.

Oh, don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining. I love these larger-than-life characters, played to perfection by the talented actors who grace these roles. Some fit in perfectly with their surroundings, others stand out like a sore thumb amongst castmates. One thing they all have in common, though, is that watching them is pure entertainment.

Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker on The Mentalist)

Jane doesn't quite have the social graces to blend into society, and that's why I love him. The frumpy suits, the obnoxious antics, and the constant pushing of the envelope make for some good TV. From card counting in the casino to reading Lisbon's mind; hypnotizing suspects to making a sandwich in a victim's home, Jane's done it all. Unconventional, to say the least.

On the 9th day of Festivus, TV gave to me... - VIDEOS

hugh laurie...Nine foreign Americans

With all of the starry-eyed, out-of-work Midwesterners who litter Sunset Blvd., one would assume that our television landscape would be similarly populated with corn-fed blonds. You would, however, be wrong. In fact, there are a ton of non-Americans who have come to Hollywood to take all of our primetime show-starring jobs.

What's fun for me is watching the shows to see who does a good version of an American accent, and who needs to spend a little more time with their dialect coaches. Below are nine stars who've jumped the pond to come to the good ol' U. S. of A.

See how it all started for Bones and House

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 3rd 2008 9:23AM

Get nostalgic next Tuesday with the pilot episodes of Bones and HouseLet's get nostalgic for a moment, shall we? Well, as nostalgic as you can get for shows that premiered only three and four years ago. Wouldn't you like to relive the first time you saw Gregory House berate a staffer over at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital? Or, watch one of Temperance Brennan's first
"official" pairings with Seeley Booth? And, rather than watching it on DVD, uninterrupted, wouldn't you like to review these moments on network television, complete with commercials and constant reminders that American Idol is premiering very, very soon?

Well, FOX is giving you that chance on January 8th as it airs "encores" (aka: repeats) of the House and Bones pilot episodes. This will give new and old viewers a chance to see how their beloved characters looked and acted in the very beginning, and how they grew (or not) as their respective series progressed. It's also a chance to watch these two shows in proper Tuesday night order before the schedule is ripped asunder by the monster known as American Idol.

What Jen is thankful for

Thirtysometing'Tis the season to be thankful and, more particularly, to perform an inventory of what we are thankful for. The list can be a bit overwhelming, so I'm happy to parse it down to what I am thankful about television-- and not just what's on the air now (which is fortunate, considering the current WGA strike).

TV male eye candy (Jen's Three)

by Jen Creer, posted Nov 13th 2007 10:00AM
mick st. johnI can't remember when I have enjoyed a research project more. We have an opportunity to create our own lists of the hottest guys on TV today, and let me tell you: It was not easy. We originally had 30 men on our list (thirty-one if you count our top guy, but you'll have to click to Kristin's post to find out where to see who he is!), but we were asked to pare them down to ... three apiece?!

Here are my three. Well, I suppose you get a big clue as to one of them right here and now, but I couldn't resist putting up this photo. Yum! You will notice that my tastes don't run strictly to candy: I have someone who is not quite human; a self-admitted asshole; and an arrogant coward. Come to think about it, you could apply these descriptions to all three of my guys, but I love 'em anyway!
