Another day, another bizarre TV scheduling decision. On the heels of NBC's Chuck sandwich last week comes Fox's choice to bring House back tonight — just in time for the show's Christmas episode. Yeah, I'm all for prolonging the holidays, but this is a little much.
Still, it's hard to complain at all about the return of House, even if tonight's episode seems a tad out of place. The series has three episodes left — including the big post-Super Bowl installment — and they're all airing between tonight and next Tuesday. For as much as I've been missing the cranky doc, I'll certainly be getting my fill over the next few days.
Tonight's episode is called "It's a Wonderful Lie" — one of those references that would have made a lot more sense in December — and finds House and his team treating a woman who is mysteriously paralyzed and might be withholding a key piece of medical information. The West Wing fan in me did a little backflip when I saw Janel Moloney as the patient of the week. Seriously, where has she been? In other news, House also organizes a Secret Santa exchange at PPH, and I don't really care if it's a month late: That's something I've got to see.
