House (Adam Taylor/FOX)Fox is gearing up for February sweeps month with all new episodes of its line-up, as well as a slew of guest stars for both recorded and animated shows. Here’s a day-by-day breakdown of the Fox sweeps calendar, with descriptions for each show. Since it’s so long, we’ve broken it up by days of the week, so make sure to click the numbers/arrows at the bottom to go to the next page.

MONDAY

Mondays this February are nights of gripping drama with four all-new installments of HOUSE, including the 30th HOUSE episode directed by executive producer Greg Yaitanes, which also guest-stars Jeffrey Wright on Feb. 6; and four all-new hours of ALCATRAZ.

Monday, Feb. 6

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Nobody’s Fault”

Executive producer Greg Yaitanes directs his 30th episode, and Emmy Award winner Jeffrey Wright guest-stars in the first of four all-new February Sweeps episodes. When a violent incident involving a patient (guest star David Anders) has serious consequences, House (Hugh Laurie) and the team are placed under review by Dr. Walter Cofield (guest star Wright), Foreman’s former mentor. As House and each member of his team recount the details of the dramatic, life-threatening event, Cofield must weigh the team’s unconventional brand of collaboration against its ability to save lives.

ALCATRAZ (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Guy Hastings”

Guy Hastings (guest star Jim Parrack), an Alcatraz guard, reappears. Although a good man, Hastings is being asked to do bad things and will come face-to-face with an old acquaintance.

Monday, Feb. 13

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Chase”

Chase (Jesse Spencer) takes on a patient, Moira (guest star Julie Mond), who is a cloistered nun on the verge of making her life-changing vows, and through the treatment process, the two form a unique connection that tests their faith and reason. But when Moira’s condition worsens and requires a risky surgery, Chase’s judgment is compromised. Meanwhile, House and Taub (Peter Jacobson) try to remain one step ahead of each other’s pranks.

ALCATRAZ (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Paxton Petty”

When our unlikely trio of Madsen (Sarah Jones), Doc (Jorge Garcia) and Hauser (Sam Neill) tracks former inmate Paxton Petty (guest star James Pizzinato), a sick landmine bomber who has returned only to place bombs throughout populated areas of San Francisco, methods of the past are applied to the present.

Alcatraz (Fox)Monday, Feb. 20

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Man of the House”

A marriage counselor (guest star Jake Weber) suddenly collapses during a speaking engagement, and when he is put under close evaluation, the team notices changes in his behavior that conflict with his message on the roles of men and women. With no conclusive diagnosis, the team must assess the patient’s past behavior to provide clues into his worsening physical symptoms. Meanwhile, House and his Ukrainian “wife” Dominika (guest star Karolina Wydra) make a deal to convince Immigration that they are a happily married couple, a move that has serious implications if they are caught lying. Also, House decides to name a team leader and watches as each of the team members vies for the not-so-coveted position.

ALCATRAZ (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Johnny McKee”

Madsen and Hauser hunt down Johnny McKee (guest star Adam Rothenberg), a former Alcatraz inmate and vicious killer with a background in chemistry. It’s a race against time before McKee horrifically poisons more innocent victims. Meanwhile, more details emerge about Madsen’s grandfather.

Monday, Feb. 27

HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Love is Blind”

House and the team take on the case of Will Westwood (guest star Michael B. Jordan), a successful, independent blind man who’s about to make one of the most important decisions of his young life: to ask for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. But before he can propose, he’s struck down by a mysterious illness. Now House and his team battle to save him, and in the process Will is faced with a decision that will change his life forever. Meanwhile, House’s mother (guest star Diane Baker) surprises him at Princeton Plainsboro to relay some news about a new relationship (guest star Billy Connolly).

ALCATRAZ (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Clarence Montgomery”

Clarence Montgomery (guest star Mahershala Ali), the only innocent man in Alcatraz, returns to present day, but is now committing crimes. Why?
