Us Rating: ***

In one of House's grimmest, most gruesome tales to date (and that's saying a lot!), the doc (Hugh Laurie) discovers that the experimental muscle-building drug he's been taking illegally has left him with deadly tumors in his bad leg. From there, he goes to bloody -- and wildly far-fetched -- extremes to save his life. As TV's master of self-destruction, Laurie haunts while exploring new depths of despair. (Fox, 8 P.M.)
