Just for the record, I spent about 30 seconds trying really hard to think of a medical pun to make in the headline. You know, like "House's Competition Ailing" or "House Diagnoses Ratings Success," and then abandoned the idea, for reasons that should by now be obvious.
Anyway, my Dad's favorite show on TV (and, really, the only show on TV he'll watch) killed the competition this week, with a series-high viewership of 27.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched scripted series this week (this means it beat Grey's and Super Bowl trailer Criminal Minds). Its lead-in is AmIdol, but, still. Very impressive. Way to go, House!
