House-berternie

Taub and Foreman after being compared to Ernie and Bert, respectively

House (onscreen logo usually added a small M.D. which all TV listings, official promotion, and other materials ignored) is a medical drama which ran on FOX from 2004-2012, focusing on the title character, a brilliant but unpleasant physician who often uses deductive reasoning to diagnose his patients' ailments.

Muppet Mentions

  • In the seventh season episode "Recession Proof," House addresses Foreman and Taub with "Bert, take Ernie and check his office for environmentals." Chase further clarifies, with amusement, that Foreman is Bert and Taub is Ernie. Masters adds "And they're both roommates. That was a good one."
  • In the eight season episode "Man of the House," a video seminar shows current patient Joe saying "But we don't live on Sesame Street. We live in the real world, the business world."
