Dr. House is paging a revitalized female cast for fall.
House producers just hired actress-comedian Charlyne Yi to join the show as a series regular. Yi will help repopulate the female cast of the Fox medical drama that’s seen departing names over the years, such as Lisa Edelstein and Amber Tamblyn, especially now that Olivia Wilde is part time.
Yi joins the team playing a young doctor on the show, coming on the heels of House hiring another new female full-timer, Breaking In co-star Odette Annable, who will play a prison doctor. Yi had a scene-stealing role in Knocked Up and recently was in NBC’s Love Bites. She’s repped by UTA, Christie Smith at Mosaic and Lev Ginsberg. Here’s Yi from a guest spot on Conan: READ FULL STORY »
The character of Lisa Cuddy wasn’t expected to disappear after House’s seventh season. In fact, executive producer David Shore told EW that he was planning on Cuddy’s alter-ego, Lisa Edelstein, to be back for more after they shot the drama’s finale.
Shore says he would have crafted a different season-ender had he known her plans. (The actress, whose contract expired at the end of season 7, declined to renew her deal.) “I don’t know how exactly [I would have changed the finale],” Shore told EW during a special charity event for House Thursday that benefitted the Writers Guild Foundation. “I don’t what it would have been. It probably would have involved more closure on the character. I was really disappointed. I am still reeling from it but we just started meeting a few days ago, like we always do this time of year, to try to map out the first half of the next season, and we are having some very frank discussions about what we are going to do.” READ FULL STORY »
'The Glades,' 'Burn Notice,' 'Covert Affairs,' and 'House': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
Summer is in full swing here, as you can tell from the slate of shows on tap this week. And it’s going to be a pretty solid week, Roomies! I’m particularly excited about The Glades and Burn Notice, the subjects of your two pieces of big scoop this week.
Be sure to send me requests for your favorite summer shows via email: You can do so by emailing email@example.com. And, as always, I can be found trolling Twitter @EWSandraG.
‘BURN NOTICE’: THREE BURNING QUESTIONS, ANSWERED!
The new season of Burn Notice is upon us, readers, and it’s going to be a good one! But it seems I’ve been inundated with your inquiries about this season more than ever, and I’m happy to help! So I’ve plucked out three of the most frequent questions and posed them to Jeffrey Donovan: READ FULL STORY »
It’s hot in New York right now. Not awful… but getting there. And watching the premiere of Leverage, where the team heads to Alaska for a case, not only made me wildly jealous but provided just the escape I was craving. That’s summer TV for you! And we’re gearing up for the bulk of it, readers. So send in your scoop requests to firstname.lastname@example.org (that’s two r’s) or Tweet them to me @EWSandraG. I’m also accepting random questions about finales, questions for EW staffers, and your general TV musings. (I read them all when I run out of TV to watch, which happens more often than you think.) Thanks, as always, Roomies!
‘HOUSE’: CHASE AND THIRTEEN: IS IT ON?
There’s so much change going on at House, it’s both terrifying and a little exciting. Exciting because there’s no way to predict how the post-Cuddy world will shift this show. One option currently being explored? The advancement of the Thirteen/Chase chemistry we’ve all picked up on. READ FULL STORY »
The creative team at House has their work cut out for them next season following the departure of one of their beloved leading ladies, Lisa Edelstein. But David Shore is more than up for the task. This morning, following last night’s shocking finale, Shore called up EW to reflect on the episode, the season of Huddy, and what fans can expect next season.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I have to start off by asking, did House want to run over Cuddy and Co.?
DAVID SHORE: No. I think he was aiming at the house — not at the people. Obviously, he was taking a huge risk, but I don’t think he was trying to kill anyone off, but I think he was risking killing some people. READ FULL STORY »
Let me just put this out there: I will be thrilled if Cuddy doesn’t die tonight on the season finale of House. Yes, we know that Lisa Edelstein will not be returning next season, but there are other ways to say farewell to a character as beloved-by-many as Lisa Cuddy. Right? Well, we hope so. But there’s really no telling what executive producer Greg Yaitanes and team House have up their sleeve. READ FULL STORY »
We’re coming up to that point of the year, Roomies, where all the season finales are wrapping up and so is my will to take any more emotional abuse from showrunners. Kidding – and also not. Nonetheless, when the last major finales wrap up, it’ll be like opening the last present on Christmas Day. You’re satisfied…yet sad.
But fear not. Summer TV brings its bounty not too long after and we should rejoice in that. So please send your questions to me. AND if you have any burning questions/general comments about any season finales, send those in, too. We’ll track down some answers, yeah?
Huddy no more: EW has confirmed that Lisa Edelstein will not be returning to season 8 of House. The actress, whose contract was set to expire at the end of season 7, has decided to not sign on for the season ahead. (Colleagues Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps, however, have.) Edelstein released the following statement about her move: “After much consideration, I am moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead.”
Sad news for Edelstein fans, but even more for Huddy fans: Those hoping Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) and Edelstein’s Dr. Cuddy would finally keep their on-and-off-again relationship on might be forced to let go. Here’s hoping there’s a treatment for post-Cuddy depression. (Additional reporting by James Hibberd)

'House' exec producer on tonight's episode and how it nods to Martin Scorsese's 'Bringing Out the Dead'
Tonight’s episode House is one of the most intense hours of the entire season. As teased in this week’s Spoiler Room, the episode takes viewers behind the medicine and into the personal lives of the docs at Princeton-Plainsboro, which (wouldn’t you know) still have a lot to do with medicine.
But beyond the medicine and blood — and there’s a lot of it tonight — executive producer Greg Yaitanes says the episode “sets up the collisions of events that are about to happen” in the season finale, which airs next week. READ FULL STORY »

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'
Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).
