Latest Entertainment Premise: People Lie

There are two new television shows that are partially based on the premise “People Lie”.

The first is Fox’s House M.D. The main character Dr. Gregory House is an expert in infectious disease. He believes talking to patients is a waste of time and any information they give will only mislead a proper diagnosis.

The second series is the yet to be released NUMB3RS from CBS. The crime drama boasts big-name actors (Rob Morrow) and directors (Ridley Scott and Tony Scott). The tagline in the ads is “People Lie. Numbers Don’t.”

This idea that “People Lie” is going get more attention as people read Malcolm Gladwell’s new book Blink.
