Instead of teaching the curriculum, Finn tutors the kids in the subject nearest and dearest to his heart: rock and roll.

Tuesday, Dec. 9

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) � "Joy to the World"

House (Hugh Laurie) and the team encounter a teenager who collapsed during her high school Christmas program. They soon find the troubled teen dealt with more than her share of bullying at school, and as her condition continues to deteriorate, the team must delve deeper to get to the bottom of her mysterious illness. Foreman (Omar Epps) continues to work with Thirteen (Olivia Wilde), and their relationship progresses when he learns a valuable lesson from her.

In an encore of this holiday favorite, the body of a man with a white beard and a tailor-made Santa costume is discovered in the sewer near a D.C. mall just three days before Christmas. As the team gathers forensic evidence, the victim, whose legal name was Kristopher Kringle, seems to match the legend more closely each step of the way. As Christmas Day approaches, the Jeffersonian team works to find out who would have wanted this true-to-myth Santa dead. Meanwhile, Brennan visits her father in jail and plots a not-so-traditional Christmas reunion, and Booth and Brennan find themselves in close quarters with the mistletoe just overhead.
