House: Ratings for the 2011-12 TV Season

House ratingsHere are the ratings for the House TV show. Doctor Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) continues to brilliantly solve tough cases and offend everyone along the way. The eighth season of House typically airs Monday nights at 9pm on the FOX network.

These are the TV show’s ratings for the 2011-12 season, the best way to tell if House is going to be cancelled or renewed for season nine (providing Hugh Laurie wants to do it). Check out our FOX ratings report card to see how this show’s numbers compare with the others on the network.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

PLEASE…. do not cancel HOUSE! Somehow though they need to bring back Sela Ward. which I know is in a new series… or Lisa Edlestein…. they made House more human… I wish Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Morrison were still part of the show or would please make occassional appearances… Please reconsider another season with these suggestions…. I will miss is greatly as I feel it is one of the most intelligently written show on TV….

Clearly, “Bill” doesnt watch the show often, as true fans have seen more true emotions in this season than in all the others. There is a comfort level between the characters that wasnt there before, and yet Kate is dealing with her feelings finally, maybe. While the season hasnt been as madcap as prevous ones, how can you say the chemistry is gone after the bank bomb, or cuffed, or the last few eps? I will tell you how… Bill isnt watching.
