House, M.D.

House, also known as House, M.D., is an American medical drama, which debuted on the FOX network on November 16, 2004. The show was created by David Shore and executive produced by Shore and film director Bryan Singer. During the 2007–08 United States television season, the series was the most-watched scripted program on TV and the third-most-watched program overall, behind American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.

House stars English actor Hugh Laurie as the American title character Dr. Gregory House, a maverick medical genius who heads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. The original diagnostic team consists of Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps). In the fourth season, this team is disbanded and House gradually winnows a field of forty applicants to a new team consisting of "Thirteen" (Olivia Wilde), Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), and Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn). Other main characters are Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), Dean of Medicine and hospital administrator at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, and Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), head of the Department of Oncology and House's only friend.

House has gained various awards and nominations. Hugh Laurie received the 2006 and 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Drama and the 2007 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. House received a 2005 Peabody Award for what the Peabody board called an "unorthodox lead character – a misanthropic diagnostician" and for "cases fit for a medical Sherlock Holmes," both of which helped make House "the most distinctive new doctor drama in a decade." The show also gained three consecutive Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006, 2007, and 2008. House is currently in its sixth season of broadcasting.

An immunologist, Cameron was a member of Dr. Gregory House's team of handpicked specialists at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital's Department of Diagnostic Medicine. She was hired six months prior to the pilot episode.House explicitly informed her that he hired her based on her looks because he believed that a pretty girl who went into medicine shows greater dedication compared to an ordinary-looking student because the former could have easily used her looks to get an easier job.

House is brilliant, self-deprecating and witty. What's not to like? OK, he mistreats people – but in a really amusing way.
