In case you didn't hear about it yet, but internist Dr. Kutner on FOX's "House" committed suicide in Monday's episode. This was hastily written into the script as the real-life Kal Penn is leaving acting for a while to go work for the Obama administration in the Office of Public Liaison. This also means no more Harold & Kumar movies for a while, so we're all sacrificing here - but seriously, congrats Kal and godspeed.

We guess the "American Idol" moment of the season occurred last night when Simon Cowell gave the Rod Blagojevich-esque Adam Lambert a standing ovation for his rendition of Tears for Fears "Mad World".

Still no late night, but check out the 9pm slot below, it's on fire!
