    Regarding “FOX rains on NBC’s parade” you left out the second half of the story: Yes, FOX will be airing a new episode of House that night to compete with Chuck, but I’ve also seen it reported that FOX will be airing an original episode of Fringe afterwards, which will be in competition with Heroes. Can’t wait!

    Why in the world would Fox move just one episode of Fringe? Are they trying to kill it?

    Frankly, putting House up against Chuck is just going to hurt House for me b/c I’ll be watching Chuck, DVRing HIMYM and probably dropping House (or watching it in repeat form on USA in 2 weeks).

    The news about House competing with Chuck just makes me hate House even more.
