On Thursday, September 17th the cast of House took to the Red Carpet (that was blue) for the sixth season premiere of House MD at the Arclight theater in Hollywood.
Ford Fiesta Agents Bridget O’Neill and Meghan Mathes talk to the cast about the show, what we can expect for season six, and who in the cast is a “twitterhead”

On September 21, 2009, tune into FOX at 8.7c for the two hour premiere of House. It’s SO GOOD!

NYDailyNews gives the 2 hour season 6 premiere rave reviews. I am glad to hear it, b/c last season bored me to tears and I am a Hugh Laurie fan..

House” launches its sixth season Monday night with its title doctor character now a patient, having checked himself into Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital…it’s just House and the residents of Mayfield, notably Dr. Darryl Nolan (Andre Braugher), who will decide after treatment whether to recommend that House get his medical license back.

…Dr. Nolan is a worthy adversary, one of the first dueling partners who often seems able to match House in strategic planning.

Like House, he thinks three moves ahead, and when House deduces some potentially humiliating personal information designed to send the doctor slinking back to his office, Nolan shrugs and says he’s not the issue here….In any case, he finds plenty of new peeps to play off in his new place. Besides Dr. Nolan, his main sparring partner becomes his roommate, Alvie (Lin-Manuel Miranda).

..Other complications arise as well, and Laurie is superb in this episode, carrying scenes so strongly that for long stretches the viewer will forget the absence of his regular colleagues entirely.

The Czar Song

LOL. We had this idea in June, and in the tradition of great minds thinking alike (betcha they are TESLA fans too, lol) someone with the technology and talent finally produced it! Coolio.

Update: House passes bill: Unemployment: House to consider McDermott UE Extension Bill this week…

Update: 10/5: Schumer says Senate will extend UE this week see here for update

Update: 9/22/09 7:43 pm EST: The bill, HR 3548 passes the House:

Jobless workers in imminent danger of losing their unemployment benefits would get a 13-week reprieve under legislation approved by the House on Tuesday.

The House bill, which applies to 27 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico with unemployment rates of 8.5 percent or higher, would add to the already-record levels of benefits that have been available to the jobless as the country struggles to recover from its prolonged economic malaise.

It would not, however, give any extra benefits to the longtime unemployed in states that have lower levels of joblessness, including Nebraska, North Dakota and Utah.

The bill passed easily, 331-83, although the two parties cast the measure in different lights. Democrats said the relief was still needed despite positive signs that their policies were reviving the economy. Republicans said the high jobless rate proved that the Obama administration’s economic strategies weren’t working.

Now the Senate has to pass ITS bill:  ‘Similar legislation is pending in the Senate.’

Our previous post on the bill here

A scaled down McDermott (D-WA) sponsored UE extension bill to be considered by the House this week.


The measure sponsored by Rep. Jim McDermott , D-Wash., would allow 13 extra weeks of benefits for workers in states where the unemployment rate has surpassed 8.5 percent. That would come on top of the emergency extensions approved in last year’s supplemental spending bill and this year’s stimulus.
