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

What do you think? Do you like House TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a ninth season?

This are the ratings the show can pull without Lisa Edelstein and her lovely Cuddy. Of course it is cancelled. It sucks so much this year i could only stomach a couple of episodes. It´ll tune in for the finale, that´s sure.

I have seen the first two episodes of the new season, and I was pleasantly surprised. Though I admit that I thought he should have gotten a longer jail term.

The ratings are a shame. They got rid of Lisa Edelstein and look where the things are going. Not looking good at all.

Really enjoy House but, this is obviously the last season. Thanks to all who are/were involved in the creation of a great show.

It’d be interesting if they kept him in jail for a while with a whole prison of interesting cases but I saw from next week’s previews that he’s already getting out. What a drag.
