House and the team take on the case of Nick (guest star Jay Karnes), a book editor who starts hurling insults at coworkers during a dinner party. Nick's frontal lobe inhibition causes him to vocalize all of his innermost thoughts, resulting in extremely shocking outbursts directed at his family and the doctors trying to cure him.

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) � "Here Kitty"

When Morgan falls seriously ill, he and the team are forced to get to the bottom of both mysteries.

24 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) � "9:00 PM-10:00 PM"
