Is It the End for These Primetime Dramas?

Lisa Edelstein, Chris Meloni

If you believe all of those doomsday predictions, the world is set to end in 2012. But the broadcast networks are bracing for a different kind of apocalypse next year, as several prime-time staples appear ready to call it quits.

Aging favorites like House, CSI, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order: SVU are all nearing the end of their lifespans, with ratings declining and costs rising. Furthering these shows' slides are the seismic casting shifts that rocked the industry in recent weeks. CSI's Laurence Fishburne, SVU's Christopher Meloni and... read more

Question: I am thrilled! Laurence Fishburne is leaving CSI. I thought that the mothership of this franchise lost a lot when Grissom left, but bringing in Laurence Fishburne's character was the worst possible mistake ever.

House: How Will Thirteen's Return Affect House and the Team?

Olivia Wilde and Hugh Laurie, House

There's no denying that Monday's House is special — but not because it's the show's 150th episode.

"I refuse to acknowledge those numbers as milestones," creator and executive producer David Shore tells TVGuide.com. "I hate to pooh-pooh this, but I believe Episode 149 should be just as good as Episode 150. One number's not more important than another number. This is kind of a departure episode, but that's purely coincidental."

Whether or not all episodes are created equal, this one is emotionally significant, both for Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) and Thirteen (Olivia Wilde), who returns to the show after a mysterious disappearance more than a year ago.

Exclusive: Not So Fast, Here's Why House Is Unlikely to End Up at NBC

House

Is House grabbing his cane and jumping to NBC? Don't hire the moving vans just yet.

Fox's deal with Universal Media Studios, which produces the Hugh Laurie drama, is expiring, and as Variety reported Friday, there's no resolution in sight. That's led some to wonder whether Universal might ultimately move the show, entering its eighth season this fall, to sister network NBC.

Even though new NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt is high on his new development, the network could... read more

Can you envision a version of House in which Dr. Crankypants doesn't rely on right-hand man Wilson? Perhaps you should start trying.

House: So You Think Hugh Can Dance?

Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein

With a bum leg and a skulking aversion to just about everything, House (Hugh Laurie) doesn't seem a likely candidate to trip the light fantastic with girlfriend Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). Thank the ghosts of Fred and Ginger for dream sequences. In tonight's "Bombshells" episode, Cuddy's anxiety about her relationship with House plays out in a series of fantasies — including a Hollywood Western scene — capped by the Huddsters hitting the floor to an updated version of "Come On Get Happy." 

The job of turning doctors into dancers was a snap — or at least half the job was. "For Lisa, this was a dream come true," says exec producer Greg Yaitanes. "She has experience as a dancer and singer and was willing and wonderful." Laurie? "Let's just say he had to surrender to the idea," Yaitanes says, laughing.

Fortunately, they had an inspiring coach. Mia Michaels, Emmy-winning choreographer extraordinaire of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, worked for days ...
