House
8/7c Fox
So House is officially back on the job. (Talk about phoning it in last week!) Will it be just like old times? We'll find out tonight, when the patient is an African dictator (James Earl Jones) who's accused of crimes against humanity. Meanwhile, House might be drug-free (or not). He might even be pain-free. But he's still House, and as Wilson learns yet again — this time when he tries to end a feud with a neighbor — House is still a pain in the you-know-what.

From Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick comes Outrage, a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians with appalling gay rights voting records who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States' most powerful policymakers, Outrage takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media's complicity in keeping their secrets. With analysis from prominent members of the gay community such as Congressman Barney Frank, former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, and openly gay congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (Representative, Wisconsin 2nd district), Outrage probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures, and much more.

Second trailer for Outrage announces the documentary's premiere on HBO. An official selection of the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival, Outrage investigates the hidden lives of some of the country's most powerful policymakers - from now-retired Idaho Senator Larry Craig, to former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevy - and examines how these and other politicians have inflicted damage on millions of Americans by opposing gay rights. Equally disturbing, the film explores the mainstream media's complicity in keeping those secrets, despite the growing efforts to 'out' them by gay rights organizations and bloggers. Through a combination of archival news footage and exclusive interviews with politicians and members of the media, Outrage probes the psychology of a double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, and the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures. As Barney Frank, perhaps the best-known openly gay member of Congress explains, 'There is a right to privacy, but not a right to hypocrisy. It is very important that the people who make the law be subject to the law.' The film also spotlights Michael Rogers, a gay activist and founder of blogACTIVE, a Washington, D.C.-based website dedicated to outing closeted public figures. Rogers feels it is necessary to expose the hypocrisy of those who may live one way in public and another way in private, explaining that his work is not about outing people who are gay, but rather about 'reporting on individuals who are working against the community that they then expect to protect them.'
