  • Everyone keeps using those old season House cast photos – that makes me sad.

    • It’s a fitting nod to the House we all fell in love with.

        • It’s not dead. It just has sarcoidosis. Do a PET scan to confirm and treat with corticosteroids.

  • I’ve drifted in and out of House if truth be known, but even so it’ll be sad to see it go. As for Gordon Ramsay, I don’t really get the fascination I’m afraid. It does sadden me that FOX have invested in another show of this type, when they have cancelled shows such as Lie To Me that were clever, clever programmes with likeable characters to boot. I know my opinion is probably not worth an awful lot, and many, many will disagree. However, I thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion.
    Many Thanks

    • I totally agree with you comments about Lie To Me. Great show.

  • Will miss House but the end signals I will no longer be watching the hate mongering fox network.

    • “Hate-mongering”? Certainly not toward HOUSE — they kept it around longer than I would have.

      • Simon jester – the commenter is sadly trying to turn an article about television into a political statement.

  • Show was dead the day Cutty decided to walk away. I knew it would be cancelled. Ratings have been very poor this season. 2.5 is awful for an expensive show like this.

  • While I’ll miss seeing Hugh Laurie brilliantly play House, it’s best to end the show. The writing has been good this year, and it’s better to go out on a high note than a low note (like the last couple of years.)

  • House has been getting a bit stale but I watch it because of Hugh Laurie and will miss not seeing him on a weekly series.

  • I LOVE HOUSE ! I hope I can get over the LOSS!

  • I will miss Hugh Laurie, House not so much. It’s been a while since we had a good season. Season 8 isn’t as bad as season 7, but it’s still far cry from season 1 to 5.
    I hope we can see Cuddy & 13 (and why not Cameron) one last time before the end.

  • The title of this post says it all as to the direction in which FOX programming is going: intelligent, thought-provoking shows like House are giving way to reality programming like Hotel Hell! I agree it’s time for House to go, but the character will never be forgotten.

  • Yes, the ratings have been lower in the US, but House is still the most watched show in the world. Yet again, another case of Americans thinking we’re the only country that matters.

    • We are the only country that matters when we make the show.

  • I don’t care about what kind of ending this show will have I just care abut the show is ending because it has been the best show ever. There is no other good show to watch on tv.

  • I kinda saw the end coming. I’ve been a fan of House for a few years, and although not entirely happy with it ending, I feel it was time to say goodbye. Eight years is a great run for a show, and there are definatly going to be a lot of fans missing the antics we saw every monday. As for the finale, I’m looking forward to how the writers will play it out, but I’m can easily say that I’m probably not the only one who wants to see something big with House and Wilson. It would be interesting to see it with Cuddy, but as episodes like ‘The Down Low’ have shown, there is definatly some spark there. Okay, now I’m just babbling…
