After receiving his honorary doctorate in fine arts, TV satirist Stephen Colbert
placed several pictures of other famous TV doctors who inspired him on the mantle-piece of his show's set. One of these is of Hugh Laurie
as Dr. Gregory House. The others are Bill Cosby
as Dr. Cliff Huxtable and Noah Drake from General Hospital. As a response, the creators of House placed a picture of Colbert on the desk of Gregory House in the show's 5th season, that can be seen from time to time. Due to both Laurie's show winning an Emmy over Colbert's, and because Laurie received an OBE while Colbert did not, Colbert named House to his enemies list. See more
