HOUSE CALL: In what was hardly a surprise announcement in light of its recent American Idol-goosed ratings, Fox's House has been picked up for a third season. In its sophomore run, the series has averaged 14.1 million total viewers and as of late has retained more than 70 percent of the Tuesday-night Idol's audience — most impressive, considering that other Idol lead-outs are lucky to keep half of the viewers. It's enough to make the dour doc sing. Almost.

LANCE FEVER: According to the New York Daily News, Lance Armstrong has gotten right back onto the bike following his split from fiancée Sheryl Crow. At assorted Wednesday-evening soirées, he was spied working his charms on the likes of Elisabeth Röhm, Salma Hayek and [Insert "town bicycle" joke here] Lindsay Lohan.

ENCORE, ENCORE: Starting March 16, Fox Reality will air American Idol Extra, which promises to reveal "the backstage drama of what really happens" each week after someone is voted off. Which means A) lots of crying, B) joyous heavy petting among the older contestants or C) both.

AT THE MOVIES: Per Variety, Kevin Kline is in talks to join Tom Hanks and his son, Colin Hanks, in the magician comedy The Great Buck Howard.... Sandra Bullock will headline and coproduce a feature about Peyton Place author Grace Metalious.... Disney has big plans for 2007: The CGI-animated Meet the Robinsons will bow Feb. 9, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 will wash ashore on Memorial Day 2007 (part 2, Dead Man's Chest, hits theaters this July 7), and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has been assigned a Dec. 14 release.

SHORT CUTS: Wednesday was a ratings whopper for a pair of cablers. The premiere of Black. White. drew 4 million total viewers for FX (nearly triple the net's previous best for an unscripted series), while the Project Runway finale (tailing Black. White. in the 10 pm hour with 3.4 million viewers) became Bravo's highest-rated program ever.... Speaking of Bravo, it has inked a deal worth $15 million-plus to begin airing HBO's Six Feet Under this fall.
