Default House MD

This show broadcasts on Fox but is produced in association with NBC Universal. The DVDs seem to be distributed by Universal Studios. When/if the series hits high-def home release do you think it will be on HD DVD or Blu-ray?

It is released by Universal -- HD DVD as long as nothing changes between now and then.

Speaking of which, why would an NBC owned show be aired on Fox? I think I've seen it before, but never really understood that.

NBC probably couldn't fit it into their schedule, what with two dozen episodes of Law and Order airing every week.

Fox is probably paying quite a bit for it. It's a popular show that would do well to get NBC's ratings up. How is Fox beating NBC in viewer audience? 24 and House.

It's very common that studios produce shows for other networks, it's more profitable for them since they still have home video and syndication rights to the show, but they don't have to worry about advertising money covering the costs of the show on their network.

And sometimes a network doesn't think that a show is that great even though it is produced by their parent company and the parent tries to sell it to another network.
