Well, it's ok if Taub is getting fired as long as 13 goes away to deal with her illness. And if Foreman would go along to nurse her, that would be a thousand times better. But I like Peter Jacobson. If I had my way (& from what I've read, I'm hardly alone), instead I'd dump Forteen so fast it would make your head spin. I used to have an e mail list to keep all the House fans I knew (& some of whom I created) apprized of House events. That list has pretty much evaporated. None of them are shippers or anything, but they've gotten sick of all the endless time spent on the personal lives of supporting characters they don't care about, as well as the turning of "House, MD" into "House, the Trials of Job." Hugh Laurie makes House likeable. Fans don't want to see House continually tortured. It's not like his life isn't tough enough already. House, the Show, rightly won the TV Guide "Jumping the Shark" Award this year. By all accounts, they had a great show and after a mere 3 seasons, they just threw it all away. Obviously, it's one thing to create a great show. It's quite another thing to be able to maintain it. Thanks David, thanks Katie, thanks TPTB. I don't see how you'll ever get back all the fans you've lost. And you don't deserve to. Hugh Laurie does, but you certainly don't.
