Weekly Episodes of the Hit series to Air on Fridays on Oxygen

NEW YORK - December 29, 2011 - Award-winning, hit series "House" is coming to Oxygen, kicking off its run on the network with a New Year's Day marathon. The first ten episodes of the first season of the show will air back to back on Sunday, January 1 beginning at 8AM ET/PT with all ten episodes then repeating and ending the marathon at 3AM ET/PT. Airings of "House" from all eight seasons will then shift to Friday evenings at 6PM ET/PT, with encore presentations on Saturdays at 10AM ET/PT.

"House" is a quirky medical drama starring Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, an unconventional medical genius who heads a team of doctors at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in New Jersey. The critically acclaimed series has won several awards, including five Primetime Emmy(R) Awards, two Golden Globe(R) Awards, a Peabody Award and nine People's Choice Awards.

The following episodes will air on Sunday, January 1st beginning at 8AM ET/PT:

"Pilot" A young teacher suffers from seizures in front of her class of kindergartners. She is taken to Princeton Hospital, where a world renowned doctor, Dr. Gregory House is assigned to her case.

"Paternity" A 16-year-old patient comes in suffering from double vision and night terrors. House dismisses the kid but as he's leaving the hospital the patient suffers from myoclonic jerks. As he gets worse, Cuddy is horrified at the fact that House is making bets on the child's paternity, which might be the key to solving the case.

"Occam's Razor" Brandon is 22-year-old male, who ends up passing out after having rowdy sex with his fiancée. He complains of abdominal pain, nausea, and suffers from fever and low blood pressure. House and Foreman test out their theories, but after a dangerous drop in white blood cells, they realize they must find a solution and soon.

"Maternity" After two newborns in Princeton Plainsboro's maternity ward fall ill, House takes on the case. Soon the illness has spread to six babies, all of which have high fevers and low blood pressure which could mean that these newborns will die in less than a day. House wants to test which medicine works better, by putting one of the babies on a different medicine, despite the fact that this experiment may have a fatal effect, which angers Dr. Cameron and the rest of the specialists.

"Damned If You Do" House has a new patient whose hands are red with boils. She is a nun and all of her fellow nuns believe her condition to be stigmata. After what seems to be an allergic reaction to the medicine House prescribes, Cuddy orders him to research the case.

"The Socratic Method" Lucy Palermo is a schizophrenic mom with deep vein thrombosis and also displays mixed symptoms, including a tumor, but House realizes her cannot figure out what is wrong with her. After an anonymous call to Social Services, House begins to question whether Lucy is really schizophrenic, and causes her son, Lucas, to blame Dr. House for making the call which will take him away from her.

"Fidelity" After a husband finds his wife in bed and cannot wake her up, he rushes her to the clinic. Puzzled by her symptoms, they consider everything from cancer to rabbit fever. When all the treatments fail, House comes up with the diagnosis of African sleeping sickness.

"Poison" A young high school male comes in to the hospital with a lethal poisoning, but neither House or the rest of his team can find out what has caused it. House decides to send Cameron and Chase to the teen's home to find the hot new drug House is sure he's taking. They don't find drugs, but do find something that would explain his symptoms.

"DNR" After jazz musician John Henry Giles checks into Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital believing he's dying from ALS, he signs a DNR to avoid a slow death. House disagrees with the diagnosis then violates the man's DNR to save his life. House ends up in court and the man's paralysis ends up getting worse.

"Histories" Dr. Foreman is convinced that a homeless woman is faking seizures just so she can get a free meal. However, Dr. Wilson is determined to keep her from falling between the cracks of the system. Soon, her symptoms actually do get worse, and House and his team feel that getting an accurate history of the patient will be the key to solving the mystery.
