Episode of TV series House, airing tonight, shot entirely with Canon EOS 5D Mark II  
Monday, May 17, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
The season finale of the U.S. TV series House, airing tonight, was captured with Canon's EOS 5D Mark II. This makes it "the first network television prime time drama episode to be shot entirely on a Digital SLR camera," says a Canon USA press release.

As you can see in the short preview below, the episode makes significant use of the shallow focus effect afforded by Canon's video-capable full frame still camera.

More information is in the Canon USA press release below. Last month, Philip Bloom posted an extended audio interview with Greg Yaitanes, Executive Producer and Director of House, in which he talks about using the 5D Mark II.
