Lisa Edelstein on Leaving House and Her Good New Role: "I Just Move On"

Lisa Edelstein, Good Wife

After years of playing second fiddle to Hugh Laurie's selfish, outspoken misanthrope on House, Lisa Edelstein is ready to have some similar fun of her own.

"I loved playing Cuddy for all this time, but I definitely wanted to shift out of that, because I've been playing this sort of repressed control freak for seven years," she tells TVGuide.com. "I want to have a little bit of fun."

Edelstein shocked House fans earlier this year when she announced she was hanging up her stethoscope after seven seasons — essentially leaving the complicated "Huddy" relationship unresolved. (The last fans saw of Cuddy was when House was driving his car into her dining room, so complicated may be an understatement). Now, just six months after her departure, Edelstein is already back on the small screen with a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife.

House: The New Dean of Medicine Speaks!

House, Omar Epps

There's a new Dean of Medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.

And on Monday's episode of House, that new dean was Dr. Gregory House's ticket out of prison. After House (Hugh Laurie) drove his car through her house, Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) left her post at the hospital. And taking her place is none other than Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps)!

Foreman showed up at the prison with a judge's order to release House on conditional parole under Foreman's supervision. The catch: House must return to the hospital to help his fellow doctors save an organ donor's lungs so that a transplant patient can receive them. And as you might expect, not everyone at Princeton-Plainsboro is happy to see House.

So was House worth the risk? And will he actually respect Foreman's new authority? We chatted with Epps about all that and more. Plus: What does Foreman see in... read more

When it briefly transformed into One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest two years ago, Hugh Laurie had an equally powerful actor, Andre Braugher, to play off as his nuthouse shrink. Now Fox's medical drama is taking a not-so-wonderful journey to the land of Oz — the HBO prison drama, that is — and all he's got is bland Odette Annable as a jailhouse doc House will no doubt hire at Princeton-Plainsboro once he gets sprung.

6 Burning Questions From House's Season 8 Premiere

House

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 8 premiere of House. Read at your own risk.]

House's Season 8 premiere once again proved the show's mantra: People don't change. Even in prison.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on all your favorite returning shows

Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) was the same old curmudgeon he always is, whether he was expressing (false) remorse for running his car through Cuddy's house to the members of his parole board only because that's what they wanted to hear or making another doctor's diagnosis look stupid. But even if House is the same old House, the premiere, which found the good doctor trying to save a mysteriously afflicted inmate while also scavenging to find 20 Vicodin pills for a jailhouse gang leader, proved the world around him certainly has changed. For starters, by episode's end, he's still... read more

"Actions have consequences — even on TV," creator and executive producer David Shore tells TVGuide.com. "He wasn't trying to hurt anybody; he was trying to lash out. But you can't have him just walk away from something like that. So the decision was made to punish the guy, and [we thought,] 'How can we have fun while doing that?'"

The answer is a departure episode (Monday, 9/8c, Fox) similar to the Season 6 premiere that took place with House in a mental hospital. This time, we find House (Hugh Laurie) several months into a prison sentence.... read more

Matt's Guide to Weekend TV: Fringe, Doctor Who, Dexter and More

Donnie Wahlberg

FRIDAY

Tonight's Top Pick: When worlds collide, Fox's cult gem Fringe (9/8c) is at the top of its game. You've never seen a murder-mystery manhunt like tonight's chilling and provocative episode, in which the Fringe team from the "other" world enlists "our" Olivia to cross over to track down a serial killer in the alt-universe — by bringing along the madman's doppelganger from our world, who happens to be a professor specializing in forensic pathology and profiling. The "what-if" vibes are fascinating as the professor — and by extension everyone in the dual-universe loop — considers the vagaries of fate and environment when confronted with "the path not taken." The story is suspenseful, poignant and wonderfully original. And in case you're wondering why Walter stays behind, surrounding himself with a cacophony of music: It may have something to do with that nagging disembodied voice he can't stop hearing. Hurry home soon, Peter Bishop!
