'SNL' Scorecard: Jason Segel and the Muppets Get Things Started

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 20th 2011 11:50AM


There's a danger in looking too forward to an individual 'SNL' host just because, on paper, they should excel. Too often I've thought, "Well, this person will obviously be great,' only to have that person come off as flat or uninterested. Jason Segel's name immediately jumped out as a potentially great host. I mean, yes, he was obviously going to bring the Muppets with him, that was a given. But this is a guy who has made it clear that hosting 'SNL' has been a lifelong dream. But Segel is a writer. Sometimes writers come to the show with ideas in mind (like Segel obviously did with "Andre the Giant Gets an Ice Cream") that aren't necessarily great. But, happily, Segel brought his A-game and he brought Paul Rudd because, well, why not bring Paul Rudd? On to a very happy Scorecard!

'House' - 'Charity Case'Was this the last we'll see of Thirteen on 'House' (Mon., 9PM ET on FOX)? At least the show didn't kill her off -- or worse -- for her departure. In fact, it was one of the more surprisingly gentle character exits, though House seemed pretty confident that he hadn't seen the last of her.

Thirteen revealed that she's in a relationship now and that she and her girlfriend are planning to travel. Further, she's stepped away from medicine. As House put it, "You decided to enjoy what time you have left?"

It was a star-studded event, and all the cool kids were there to accept awards. The show also accepted plenty of rocking musical performances by Foster the People, Demi Lovato, One Republic and B.o.B, and Jane Lynch took to the stage to perform 'Hold On' with Wilson Phillips.

Ryan Reynolds Tried for Chivalry, Nearly Got Sexual Assault With Olivia Wilde (VIDEO)

Ryan Reynolds, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Sex scenes are uncomfortable for everyone involved. That's why when you see one that you believe, you know you're looking at some really good acting. It's even more intimidating when you're acting opposite one of Hollywood's hottest "it" girls, as Ryan Reynolds was. He talked on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) about how he made that experience even worse.

"I'm trying not to look at her like a 14-year old boy who just won the lady lottery," he said of the moment when Olivia Wilde put his hands on her breasts for their scene in 'The Change-Up.' He was a little nervous, and admitted his palms were sweaty. Apparently, a little too sweaty.

EXCLUSIVE 'House' 150th Episode Clip: Thirteen Returns! (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 4th 2011 11:50AM
'House' is celebrating a huge milestone next week: 150 episodes of pill-popping, nickname-giving, extreme diagnosing drama.

The episode, titled 'The Dig' (airs Mon., April 11, 8PM ET on Fox), also has a very special surprise: it marks the return of fan-favorite doc Thirteen, played by Olivia Wilde.

'House' 150th Episode: Thirteen Returns
Thirteen has been in prison for the last six months, and House isn't gonna stop until he figures out why. (I mean, really, I can't wait to hear why.) To him, it's just another puzzle that needs solving -- and another way to torture someone on his team.

AOL TV has this exclusive clip from the 150th episode featuring House (Hugh Laurie) and Thirteen sparring, just like old times, as they prepare to embark on an epic roadtrip on their way back to Princeton Plainsboro. This isn't your typical roadtrip with beef jerky and classic radio sing-alongs, but it does include a spud gun competition against House's rival. Naturally.

'House' Scoop: Olivia Wilde In, Amber Tamblyn Out

Hugh Laurie and Amber Tamblyn in 'House'It's all change at Princeton-Plainsboro this season as 'House' gets ready to welcome back a familiar face and say farewell to a newer one.

According to TVLine.com, Olivia Wilde's return to 'House' later this season will coincide with the departure of Amber Tamblyn's character, Martha Masters. Tamblyn was brought in temporarily to fill the hole left by Wilde's character Thirteen when Wilde took time off to make movies.

Its rumored that the two characters will briefly cross paths this spring, and 'House' creator David Shore said he's sad to see Tamblyn go. "I wish she was sticking around, because she's wonderful ... But she's not going to be with us for [much longer]."

Shore also said that rumors of Thirteen's demise may have been premature. Discussing whether Wilde will be back in the fall for another season he said, "It would be a crying shame for us to let her get away at this point. We've been very good to her and we'd like a little bit of it back."

'House' - 'Lockdown' Recap

David Strathairm and Hugh Laurie on 'House'
(S06E16) "I'm going to be dead in a few hours. Your secrets couldn't be safer, unless you're keeping them from yourself." - Nash to House


'House'
entered into one of television's most overused cliches last night: the "randomly stuck together somewhere plot line." It's happened so many times that attempting to count all of them would require a NASA scientist, a team of fact checkers and one of those slick-looking slide rules that only a handful of people left in the universe know how to use.

This time, the team gets separated into different parts of the hospital during a lock down. Each has their own interesting stories to tell as they whittle away the hours, and each have varying degrees of success.

Review: 'House' - '5 to 9'

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 9th 2010 1:13AM
Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein, R) asks House (Hugh Laurie, L) for some advice in the HOUSE episode '5 to 9.'
(S06E14) "You can do it." - Cuddy

I get the reason for making an episode like '5 to 9.' Long running show that's popular. Established characters and story structure. The desire for David Shore, Katie Jacobs, and the rest of the 'House' crew to try something different is to be expected. However, that doesn't mean they should have done it. '5 to 9' wasn't a bad episode (in many ways, it felt like a back-door pilot for Cuddy), but it was, in a word, pointless. At the end of the day, '5 to 9' doesn't really add anything to the world of 'House,' and its outside-the-box attempt at being different just ended up being forgettable.

Review: 'House' - 'Moving the Chains'

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 2nd 2010 8:26AM
Foreman's (Omar Epps, L) already difficult relationship with his brother Marcus (guest star Orlando Jones, R) becomes worse when House (Hugh Laurie, C) gets between them in the HOUSE episode 'Moving the Chains.'
(S06E13) "Hey, I don't care where an idea comes from as long as it makes sense and embarrasses someone." - House

I've long wondered if Foreman's brother Marcus was someone we'd eventually meet on 'House.' That being said, it's been six and a half seasons and even though we'd heard bits and pieces about him, I had reconciled that he just wasn't going to show up. If anything, the timing felt a little odd.

But if you think about it, the entire plot featuring Marcus (Orlando Jones) was just about as generically evergreen as plots on 'House' get -- this could've fit into any previous season had the writers felt like telling this story sooner. I wish they had, especially if you consider the fact that after all the cast shake-ups this show has been through, Foreman has been one of the few constants. It's about time we found out more about the guy.

Review: House - Remorse

House (Hugh Laurie, R) is interested in meeting an attractive patient (Beau Garrett, L) who he believes suffers from psychopathy in the HOUSE episode 'Remorse.'
(S06E12) "Yes, it's hilarious! Great to see what a success your therapy was!" - Wilson

Ever since the season six premiere way back in September, one of the biggest complaints that I've heard or read House fans make is how the show's creative team seemed to abandon any of House's lessons from therapy. He no longer seemed to be getting better and for the most part, House was back to his old crotchety self, thus negating his stay at Mayfield.

That quote up above from Wilson felt like a little bit of an inside joke -- the writers get it, too. So with "Remorse," not only did we get the best patient-of-the-week case we've seen this season, but we also got to see House trying ... a little. But, to make a pun, if it ain't "broken," don't fix it, and crotchety House still works.
