Uhm.....But what are his credentials that make him the best for this job? scratch

Granted it doesn't sound too hard but...is this a regular position or a created one?

Sad to say I stopped watching House during the second season. donno It just seemed like too much of the same thing over and over.

Here's an excerpt of him describing the new job


What exactly is the new job?
KP:
The job itself is that I will be an associate director in the White
House Office of Public Liaison, and what the OPL does is similar in a
sense to what I was doing on the campaign. What they try and do is take
the administration itself out of Washington, so they go into
communities across the country, continue the sorts of dialogue people
had started during the campaign and basically ensure that a bunch of
citizens' views about their elected officials, about their government
are all happening and that they're working effectively. Make sure that
a lot of these new voices that have emerged -- especially during the
campaign season -- are brought to the table -- Democrats, Republicans,
everyone in between - and to build those relationships and kind of
embody the types of changes that President Obama had run on.

Since Obama is in perpetual campaign mode, it seems this Kal guy is hired on as yet another campaign worker only now our tax money gets to pay him rather than campaign contributions... Rolling Eyes

Season finale was tonight and what a crazy ending......since none of you watch it, I can tell you that House, distraught over Cutty breaking up with him for good.......drives a car through her front window of her house.....where she is having dinner with her "new" boyfriend and another couple. They are ok, but he just gets out of the car, hands Cutty a hairbrush she left at his house, and walks away.......it was crazy.

Rumor has it that Cutty will not be coming back????? It was a strange way to end it if that is the case.....but I suppose it could happen.

It's true that Lisa Edelstein won't be coming back. I'll see if I can find the story....

It's also true that I normally don't watch House, but I did watch the ep a few weeks ago when Olivia came back. Cutie

House Shocker: A 'Disappointed' Lisa Edelstein Calls It Quits

Michael Ausiello
Editor in Chief

House fandom, brace for impact: Dr. Cuddy is checking out.

Lisa Edelstein — whose long-term contract expires this month — has opted not to return for the show’s eighth and likely final season.

In a statement, the actress says, “After much consideration, I am moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead.”

Fox and NBC Universal declined to comment.

Back in March — when the future of House itself was up in the air — Edelstein told TVLine, “Nobody at work seems to think it won’t [return]. Everybody wants to come to a deal, and I certainly am looking forward to a Season 8.”

In an interview last week with BlogCritics.org, exec producer Katie Jacobs said she would “not rest” until Edelstein was on board for an eighth season. “Lisa is such a valuable member [of the cast],” she said. “I challenge any other actress on TV to do what she does seemingly effortlessly. She goes between drama, comedy, intelligence, sex appeal… It’s certainly not my plan or David’s plan or the creative team’s plan to not have Lisa in the show.”

There’s talk Edelstein was a victim of belt-tightening at the show. In the aforementioned interview, Jacobs acknowledged that, “For seven seasons we managed to avoid getting the phone call to make cuts in our budget. But now we’re getting that call.” Perhaps she rejected a low-ball offer — hence her disappointment?

Earlier this month, Edelstein’s costars Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps inked new deals to return to the show. Hugh Laurie, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson were already contracted for the recrently-greenlit Season 8, leaving Jesse Spencer as the only remaining question mark.

The news comes a week before the show’s current season — arguably Edelstein’s meatiest yet — comes to a close. It’s unclear if the finale sets the stage for a possible Cuddy departure, but that seems highly unlikely.

I never watch House even though I know that Olivia Wilde was a regular and then was gone and then came back. So I watched the episode where she got out of prison, and watched last night's episode where she makes her final appearance on the show. Normally that would signal that I never need to watch again. But then I see that Odette Anable, the former Odette Yustman, before she got married, and of Cloverfield fame, is a regular. She's a favorite, will it be enough for me to come back ? Don't know yet. Frankly I don't find the House character appealing or the way that Laurie plays him, which I guess is the same thing.....so....?? scratch

Hugh Laurie and Olivia Wilde on "House." (Fox)
House Learns Charity and Sets Thirteen Free
by Paulette Cohn
Oct 18th, 2011 | 1:34 PM | Comments 0

When is charity too much of a good thing? When a patient is willing to donate both his kidneys and go on dialysis for people he doesn’t even know, “House” (Hugh Laurie) is convinced something is driving the man crazy and he calls on Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) to rejoin his team and help him prove his case.

In her final appearance on the hit FOX series, Thirteen fulfills House’s “Charlie’s Angels” fantasy and joins his new diagnostic team consisting of Dr. Chi Park (Charlyne Yi) — who is on loan from neurology after punching her boss — and Dr. Jessica Adams (Odette Annable) — who got fired from her prison doctor job when she listened to House and used extraordinary measures to save an inmate’s life — and is working as a volunteer doctor until she finds a paying job.

This week’s patient is Benjamin (”Prison Break” guest star Wentworth Miller), who collapses on the street after making a $1 million donation to a charity that helps get people back on their feet. His extreme altruistic behavior has cost him his family and House and Park are convinced it may indicate a serious medical disorder and order a battery of tests. Nothing is conclusive and House is taken off the case when Dr. Foreman (Omar Epps) is convinced he is up to his old tricks. So House sends Thirteen in to talk to Benjamin.

Sneak Peek:

She at first resists, telling House she plans to go to Mykonos with her new girlfriend and be happy, but she eventually gives in, saying, “What am I supposed to do? I trained to be a doctor. I know how to take someone’s pain away… I have the skills to help people. Is it okay to walk away from that because I want to have fun?”

But when Benjamin offers to donate his second kidney to her — he has already offered the first one to another Princeton-Plainsboro patient — the two know that something is seriously wrong.

Along the way, the competition between the two new women docs is on: Adams, who comes from privilege, and Park, who is the daughter of immigrant parents, also have their own charity battle which begins with the simple gift of a cup of coffee … and ends up with Adams paying for car repairs … with a twist.

But in the end, a little of Benjamin’s charity rubs off on House, who tells Thirteen: “You are fired. Don’t come in tomorrow. I can work with people who have nowhere else to go ,who have nothing to prove, or who just get off on weird cases, but I can’t work with someone who is here so she doesn’t have to feel bad.”

Thirteen, who has the gene for Huntington’s Disease and understands her days are numbered, knows that House is just trying to save her, but she lets him.

Oh, yeah. And House does figure out what is causing Benjamin’s extreme altruism — which was exacerbated by one of the original tests he ran. Case closed.

I read on Yahoo today that House has been cancelled. They will finish up this season and that's it. I hadn't been watching but caught part of an episode about 2 weeks ago and thought that really the premise hadn't gotten any better so I'm not surprised it's cancelled. But, I still have mixed feelings. Hugh Laurie is a great actor and I hope he lands another show soon. :silent:

Fox Pulling Plug On ‘House’ After This Season


by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] | February 8, 2012 at 6:19 PM | [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]




[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Hugh Laurie on "House." (Fox)


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]” producers David Shore, Katie Jacobs and Hugh Laurie
have decided that the Fox drama’s eighth season will be its last.
Shore, Katie and Laurie made the announcement Thursday in the following
statement:

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.


Everybody Lies.

Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly Also Released a statement on the show’s end:

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.

Did anyone watch the series finale?

I had stopped watching the show sometime back. I would catch an episode or part of one here or there. I watched the series finale all the way through. I thought it was excellent and true to form. Something that the writers of the show should be proud of. I really liked the ending. And I'm hoping Hugh Laurie will get picked up in another show very soon. two thumbs up

I think he is going back to England. At least the guy who used to be his partner in their comedy has hinted they will be working together soon.

Anyway, the finale was spot on. Had me hook line and sinker. Felt so right and the ending was luverly.

I never watched it regularly, just a couple of eps when Olivia was there but I tried watching part of the finale in between another show and saw the part where he was in the burning warehouse... scratch .....and the ending where they rode away, which was a good way to end.
