House Kicks Some Ass

February 7, 2007

Just for the record, I spent about 30 seconds trying really hard to think of a medical pun to make in the headline. You know, like “House’s Competition Ailing” or “House Diagnoses Ratings Success,” and then abandoned the idea, for reasons that should by now be obvious.

Anyway, my Dad’s favorite show on TV (and, really, the only show on TV he’ll watch) killed the competition this week, with a series-high viewership of 27.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched scripted series this week (this means it beat Grey’s and Super Bowl trailer Criminal Minds). Its lead-in is AmIdol, but, still. Very impressive. Way to go, House!

Borat Gets His Ass Whooped, House to the Rescue!

Sacha Baron Cohen, who stars in the Borat movie, may want to consider breaking character every now and then. Cohen approached a man on the streets of NYC and said to him, in character, “I like your clothings. Are nice! Please may I buying? I want have sex with it.”

The man was not amused, and promptly punched Cohen in the face. Who came to his rescue? Pal and fellow Brit Hugh Laurie, who plays the title character on Fox’s House. Laurie was on his way to a bar with Cohen. Hm. Borat and House. That’s a spinoff I’d watch.

Here’s what I want to know: how come this shit never happened to Tom Green?
