Important! Let House survive!  

Hugh Laurie ... was reportedly ready to accept a pay cut to come back despite saying earlier he was ready to move away from television. Ratings have dropped, however remain really good for a show in its eighth season, said Fox. "
"the network ... wanted to see a cut in the license fee before considering renewal. Fox also was only willing to commit to a final 13-episode season instead of the 22 shows that Universal TV wanted."

"Let me state, publicly and unequivocally, that I love my job, and work much harder at it than most journalists work at theirs."

House
Wait until the end of March and see how well Alcatraz does as a lead in for Touch. The Finder, Terra Nova, Alcatraz, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, Lone Star how much money did it cost to get these losers into production?

Fox may have chosen badly, Very Very badly

I had loved House dearly. Unfortunately, the show has become a shadow of its former self. It should have been cancelled at the end of the sixth season. I'm glad to see it's been cancelled and put out of its misery. It was long overdue. I am far from being alone in this opinion.

I have to agree that I'm glad the show is ending. This is, in fact, because I love the show so much. It is well known that shows running 7+ seasons always go downhill and House is no exception. This season is pretty good, compared to last, but the bottom line is, it'll never be what it once was, ever again. I would rather see it go out on a high, as opposed to running well beyond it's years. This way, we can all have mostly good memories of a great show.

P.S. In my opinion, Supernatural is a poor example of bringing back a show because of fans. That show is horrible now. The way they re-wrote to try and fix the ending they'd had planned for months was awkward and just bad. Just my opinion though.
