'House' and 'Alcatraz' help Fox win Monday ratings

House and Alcatraz both took a small step down in the ratings Monday, yet nonetheless led Fox to win the night.

With CBS airing repeats of its powerful comedy block, veteran House (8.6 million viewers, 2.8 adults 18-49 rating) and newcomer Alcatraz (8.3 million, 2.7) both were at the top of their respective hours. (Well, Alcatraz tied for the win.) Both were down 10 percent from last week.

ABC’s The Bachelor (8.1 million, 2.6) was down a tenth. NBC had a repeat of Fear Factor, the Who’s Still Standing finale (6.6 million, 1.7) and Rock Center With Brian Williams (3.3 million, 0.8). Over in the magical CW Land, Gossip Girl (1.4 million, 0.7) and Hart of Dixie (1.5 million, 0.6) both perked up a tenth.

'House': 'Friday Night Lights' actor Michael B. Jordan scores guest spot

Talk about touchdown casting!

After closing out his guest spot on Parenthood in the fall, Michael B. Jordan is headed back to the small screen for a guest spot in House‘s 14th episode, playing a blind patient, the studio confirms to EW.

Jordan spilled the news earlier today via Twitter, but it appears he may have done so prematurely. The tweet has since disappeared from his feed, and later, he tweeted, “My bad @foxbroadcasting.” and “Now I know never to tweet before the studio approves. hahha #socialnetworkisinsane.”

Jordan previously starred on Friday Night Lights as quarterback Vince Howard. House, currently in its 8th season, returns Jan. 9, with a two hour episode.

Awwww. Y’all know what I realized this week?

It’s been just about one year since we first started our show-mance (and I mean that quite literally). Our mutual love for television has brought us together and I couldn’t be happier about it. So many thanks for your readership, harassment, and love. Sometimes, it all even came rolled in a single e-mail. Crazies after my own heart — I love it.

So I hope you enjoy today’s installment and the comfort of knowing that you’re now officially my longest relationship ever. Woo!!… I think.

Also, celebrate by sending me more questions and ponderings. (E-mail: or Tweet: @EWSandraG) You’re great people and I appreciate you. Happy Anniversary!! (Note: It was officially last Saturday, but in the grand tradition of all my relationships, I forgot. So we can celebrate now!)

So, readers, was Grey’s Anatomy not the most heart-wrenching thing ever last night? I was consoled only by the fact that I was sure there were other people somewhere bawling along with me. But aside from leaving me with puffy eyes, the episode also left us all with a burning question: What’s going to happen to poor Teddy? Well, when I spoke with Kim Raver, she weighed in on what’s next. “It’s like the time-bomb waiting to explode,” she says. “I know that she doesn’t just dissolve into a puddle on the floor. It’s not that kind of grieving. I know she will go into ‘Let me try to fix it’ mode. But we don’t know how long that will hold.” READ FULL STORY

'House': Jesse Spencer on possible new flames, Chase's 'best season' yet

Chase’s absence from the first four episodes of House’s new season have been painful for fans of the Aussie doc, but luckily, he and fellow veteran team member Taub (Peter Jacobson) are back on tonight’s new episode. But, as Jesse Spencer tells EW, their transition back to a team, which has seen the addition of two doctors (Odette Annable’s Jessica Adams and Charlyne Yi’s Chi Park), won’t be seamless.

“They have their disagreements [with the new team], obviously,” he says. “They have different clashes and different ways of doing things, but there is also a sort of nurturing — for lack of a better term. The [returning] characters give hints to the new characters about why House might be doing what he’s doing or which direction we think we should be going.”

There will, particularly, be some interesting interaction between Chase and new doc Adams. “There’s flirting that goes on,” he teases. READ FULL STORY

Favorite returning TV shows in trouble

After we analyzed which new fall shows were in ratings jeopardy, readers keep asking: What about the returning shows? Fringe? Community? House? Gossip Girl? Your wish for additional stress, granted: Here are some veteran series that returned weak in the ratings this fall and could be in danger when networks make their renewal decisions next year: READ FULL STORY

'House': Olivia Wilde says she's likely done for good

Olivia Wilde may have just made her exit from House on Monday’s episode, but if you were among the fans hoping for Thirteen to make a brief return in the future to close out her character’s relatively open-ended departure, you might be out of luck.

At the In Time premiere held last night at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, Calif., Wilde told EW that she didn’t foresee a return to the show — even if rumors that it could be the show’s last season prove to be true. READ FULL STORY

There’s a lot for you to eat up here, so I’ll make this brief. Thanks for all your questions! Keep it up! Tell me what you’re loving, what you’re hating, what you ate for breakfast (kidding!…or…) and what you’re dying to know! E-mail all your fabulous ponderings to or find me on Twitter: @EWSandraG.

How much did you love this news? I was so excited I even circled Nov. 14 in my calendar and drew a creepy mask by the date to remind myself. But in case you need even more reasons to be excited about the impending romantic entanglements in this very special episode, executive producer Josh Safran told me that much “like masked balls in the past, there are multiple kisses — between multiple people” in the episode. “Like, quadratic couples, I’d say,” he teases. Could that have something to do with the “big kiss” everyone has been asking me about? Possibly… READ FULL STORY

How a 'House' call put Charlyne Yi's soul-seeking plans on hold

Not long before she was scheduled to get on a plane to Sri Lanka, a call from House executive producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs put Charlyene Yi’s plans to visit orphanages on hold. The irony has not escaped her.

“I was like ‘I don’t know if I should take this job because I was soul-seeking and trying to do something meaningful,'” she said. “But I realized I’d be broke if I left and went for that Sri Lanka trip. And I thought if I took this job — aside from being interesting and an awesome opportunity — I could use that money I got pretending to help people and help people in real life. I thought that’d be really fun.” READ FULL STORY

Happy Friday, friends!

I’ve had a long and exhausting week trolling the sets of your favorite shows in rainy (but completely lovely) Vancouver, and it’s paid off. Not only have I walked away from my travels with a new love for all things (and people) Canadian, but I come back to my motherland with plenty of TV bounty.

Welcome to Spoiler Room: Jen’s Edition. Kidding. But also not really. After wrapping up today’s column, I realized I chose four questions from people named Jen. I promise you, this is not an act of favoritism. But now I’m really curious how many of you are out there.

Regardless, if you ask, I’ll answer. So get askin’! Send your questions, ponderings, new show scoop requests, and post-premiere reactions to And if many of your names happen to be Jen, fantastic. (Your move, Sarahs.)


I can’t tell you how often I get harassed lovingly asked for Meredith and Derek scoop, and after sitting through next week’s two-hour premiere with my mouth hanging open for 80 minutes (two hours, minus commercials), here’s what you’re going to get out of me on Mer/Der, Crowen, and Alex (who is sans nickname because he’s all alone. Poor Alex). READ FULL STORY

'House' season 8 sneak peek: Doctor's in the (prison) house! -- VIDEO

“House drove into a house — you gotta love irony,” says So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy, who inexplicably introduces a clip from the upcoming 8th season of House. What’s she doing there?! The same could be said for Dr. House, who finds himself this season demoted to the Department of Corrections following his unfortunate fender-bender. In the sneak peek after the jump, watch House school a prison doctor who refuses to believe a patient has lupus. (Silly girl, it’s always lupus in House!) At least Dr. House can have solace in the fact that no prison is as terrifying as Murphy’s outfit. READ FULL STORY

The most Tivo'ed show on TV is....

Thank God for DVRs, or fans wouldn’t get their regular fix of McDreamy. That’s right: Grey’s Anatomy is the most Tivo’ed show in the country for several years running — a pretty decent accomplishment for a drama that’s about to start its eighth season.

We asked Tivo, which began compiling data in October 2007, for the top 10 most DVR’ed shows and here’s what we got. The bad news: Three of these shows are no longer on the air. (Miss you, Greg Grunberg!) READ FULL STORY
