CHICAGO – Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, announced this morning in advance of next week’s unveiling of the FOX fall schedule that “House” will return for an eighth season despite rumors of a potential network switch to NBC.

The ratings on “House” are still strong and it seemed like an inevitable lock for a renewal but the program is produced by Universal, who also own NBC, and so there were rumors, first spread by EW that the program could make a network jump. Such is not the case and the show will likely be right back where it was this season on Monday nights in the fall. We’ll know for sure when it will air on Monday, May 16th, 2011.

Reilly said, “Over the past seven seasons, HOUSE has redefined the medical drama and has given us one of television’s most compelling and iconic characters. From the producers to the incredible writers to the unbelievably talented cast and crew, the HOUSE team is fearless in its creativity and I can’t wait to see what they have in store next year.

“House” stars Hugh Laurie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Spencer, Peter Jacobson, Lisa Edelstein, Omar Epps, and Robert Sean Leonard. It airs on Monday nights at 7pm CST.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
