Jesse Spencer and Rick Springfield were both guests on The Today Show this morning and both Tweeted about meeting each other back stage. The singer posted a photo, but the House star went all fan like on him. Spencer Tweeted, “Just met Rick Springfield at the today show. I told him ‘Jessie’s Girl’ was my first LP and I thought the song was written about me. Hehe 🎸”
Spencer is 33 years old and he was just about 2 when the song came out, so I have to wonder was he a Lothario back when he was just single digits or was he so into himself Carly Simon would’ve written a song about him. Chances are he paid no attention to lyrics and just heard there was a song about a guy named Jesse and just assumed he was that Jesse. Just like how I thought Meredith Brooks’ song B!tch was about me! It is, isn’t it?
You can see Jesse Spencer back on the small screen in Chicago Fire starting on NBC tonight at 10p.
Lisa Edelstein is on vacation in Panarea, Italy and Cuddy wore a bathing suit that would make House’s leg feel better. So much so he wouldn’t need a cane because his third leg work as one.
Seriously how amazing does the 45 year old look in that two piece? Who knew she had that body under those business suits?
Tonight at 9p is the second to last episode of House on Fox and it is one of the most powerful ones yet. You could tell in House’s eyes last week that Wilson’s tumor did not shrink and tonight we find out what he is going to do about it. The oncologist will decide not to go through with treatment and House will do everything he can to make him change his mind. What he does will leave you laughing and crying and laughing again.
Everyone else is fearing how House will react when he will eventually lose his friend and they are trying different things to keep him sane. But no matter how hard they try only one person can do that and his time is running out.
There will be a moment where everything will be made clear and then something will happen that changes everything. It will leave you speechless and upset that this great show only has one more episode left. It might sound like I told you too much, but I didn’t even touch the surface of this heart-wrenching amazing episode.

Olivia Wilde is normally stunning, but yesterday when she was shooting a Revlon commercial I don’t she looked as good. The brunette just isn’t as gorgeous with a blonde ’70s do. Hopefully as soon as the movie she is shooting that forced her to get this new look is done, she will go back to be being brown.
After much speculation that this would be the last season for House, Fox announced today that in fact it will be.
Hugh Laurie, David Shore and Katie Jacobs issued the below statement explaining why they are ending the show after eight years.
After much deliberation, the producers of House M.D. have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.
The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years – but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.
Since it began, House has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out, and occasionally answered. This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn’t. House has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gun play.
But now that time is drawing to a close. The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.
The producers can never sufficiently express their gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make House the show it has been – and perhaps will continue to be for some time, on one cable network or another.
The makers of House would also like to thank Fox Broadcasting and Universal Television for supporting the show with patience, imagination and large quantities of good taste. The Studio-As-Evil-Adversary is one of the many clichés that House has managed to avoid, and for that the cast and crew are deeply grateful.
Lastly, the audience: some have come and some have gone, obviously. This is to be expected in the life of any show. But over the course of the last eight years, the producers of House have felt immensely honored to be the subject of such close attention by an intelligent, discriminating, humane and thoughtful – not to mention numerous – audience. Even the show’s detractors have been flattering in their way. Making the show has felt like a lively and passionate discussion about as many different subjects as could possibly be raised in 177 hours. The devotion and generosity of our viewers has been marvelous to behold.
So, finally, everyone at House will bid farewell to the audience and to each other with more than a few tears, but also with a deep feeling of gratitude for the grand adventure they have been privileged to enjoy for the last eight years. If the show lives on somewhere, with somebody, as a fond memory, then that is a precious feat, of which we will always be proud.
The President of Fox Broadcasting Company, Kevin Reilly issued this statement:
While it’s with much regret, and a lump in our throats, we respect the decision Hugh, David and Katie have made. A true original, on the page and amazingly brought to life by Hugh Laurie, there is only one Dr. House. For eight seasons, the entire HOUSE team has given us – and fans around the world – some of the most compelling characters and affecting stories ever seen on television. They have been creatively tenacious and collaborative throughout this incredible run, and they are amongst the most superior talents in the business. For all the above, we wholeheartedly thank them, and the fans who have supported the show.
As sad as I am to see this show end, it feels like the right time. After watching Monday’s episode it felt like they were setting up for the end, and now they know it will be. I have a feeling this show will have the proper ending unlike other shows that knew they were ending, ie. Lost and The Sopranos.
If you are like me and have been a loyal fan of House since day one and you miss how good the show used to be, then tonight’s episode on Fox at 8p will restore your faith in the medical drama.
One of House’s staff members has been stabbed by one of their patients and he will have to answer what really happened to save his job and keep himself out jail. They other staff will testify and we will see flashbacks leading up to the incident that will change everything. Then once we know who was stabbed the show will start to move in real time as one their own lives hangs in the balance. As they fight to save that doctor, we will see a side of House we have never seen before. By the end of the episode House will say something that pretty much sets up an end scenario for the show. And that end could come as early as May.
I have seen tonight’s episode twice and both times I have been blown away by intense and powerful it is. It brings back the feeling we used to get when we watched the show before they added all the unnecessary BS. So if you gave up the show because of all of the BS, then come back tonight because all of those episodes that tainted you on the show will be erased after tonight’s major game changer.
There will be blood on Monday’s episode of House on Fox and it will belong to one of the lead characters on the show. House will be interrogated for his role in the blood shedding and by the end of the episode we will find out if he will be allowed to continue working at Princeton General.
There have been rumors that this could be House’s last season because Hugh Laurie’s contract is up and he has hinted that he doesn’t plan on signing a new deal. Monday’s phenomenal episode sets it up for a way to end the show. I won’t say how, but this episode is a must watch for fans of the show and former-fans who gave up the show. You will want to come back for an episode that negates all the crappy ones.
When House ends, presumably this year, Hugh Laurie will retire from working in front of the camera on TV. He told UK’s Daily Record that he feels he “no longer a desirable commodity for TV,” adding “I think I have been rather spoiled here. I can’t imagine there will be another one quite like this. I think I will probably be as interested by either writing or producing or directing, or some other aspect. I find the whole field of it fascinating. And I think I am extremely lucky to have had the one shot that I have had at it and I wouldn’t go looking for lightning to strike twice.” But lightening has striken twice for other stars like it has for Tom Selleck, Simon Cowell, Johnny Galecki and David Boreanaz to name a few. I hope he decides to stay in TV because I would love to see him do a show with his native accent.
Before he say adios to TV, catch him in House tonight on Fox at 9p while you still can!
When I saw the promos for tonight’s season premiere of House on Fox at 8p, I thought it was going to be like the one when he was in a mental institution except that he in jail this time. Well it is different than that episode, but I can’t say I enjoyed the show. I think it is because I am still bitter how they ended last season with him ramming his car into Cuddy’s house thus causing him to do time.
What I liked about the show is that he solves medical cases, I don’t really care that much about his personal life. Something the show has been dedicating more and more time to. I miss the days when he would work in the clinic and go off on the patients. It was those interactions that made the show different and they have been missing…at least by me.
Hopefully now that Cuddy (I will miss Lisa Edlestein) is out, the new head of Princeton-Plainsboro will make him work the clinic. That is House will go back to work there? Since tonight’s episode hints that he might not. But I don’t want to spoil what happens because they say what happens behind bars, stays behind bars.
