What we're watching: House is back, so we'll check out everyone's favorite ill-tempered doctor. We predict tonight's episode will include a patient with an odd condition, followed by House & team repeatedly misdiagnosing the problem, trying outlandish treatments and nearly killing the patient before discovering the key just in time.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
