    Well, House finale does not have to compete against CBS comedies or The Voice. But I still feel too many people have checked out this season and AGT and The Bachelorette is a force to reckon with in there own right. I’m saying 2.8 demo and close to 9 million viewers.

    2.8 – 3.0? Going by this seasons rating alone, I think around 13mil will tune in. But I am thinking Lost, it was doing the same as House when it ended

  • Ingmar

    I suspect a 2.8-2.9

  • Dean_W

    Like ‘The X-Files’ in 2003 3.1 and 13.2 millions.

  • HOUSE FOREVER!!!

    ill miss House more than CSI:Miami and even Dog The Bounty Hunter won’t be missed at all. but House is a rare show to fine these days. Hugh Laurie could NEVER BE REPLACED! and even the rest of the cast would not be replaced ether.
    this show will be missed and im glad they had a actual ending in this show.

  • The End

    Watched the finale yesterday and have to say this

    House + Wilson ending, clearly proves they’re more like brothers instead of friends. Well not technically brothers by birth but by their bond.

  • Carol

    Disappointing finale. The ride into the sunset with Wilson was pure cheese, so embarrassing. And no Cuddy? Come on, show, way to be clueless and classless at the same time.

  • fffff

    2.5 vest scenario

    Wilson and House ending was fine. Figured out the House plan a tad early, but glad I was right. However EPIC fail on Cuddy. Mentioned once in passing, no halucination scene, hell even the dead characters made cameos. Just shows how poorly they handled Lisa Edelstein. You can feel the animosity. I was surprised she was even in the clip show the three or four times there.

    I think it was a great finale, everyone kind of expected to see either House or Wilson will die, but they have ended the series in a bittersweet way with hinting Wilson will probably die soon and House has lost everything (his job was everything to him till that point) he says “he is dead” because of this. I couldnt see Chase taking House’s place so that was a pleasant surprise for me.

    I always wanted the series to end with a House & Wilson bromance so I got my wish :)

    House will always be missed. He was one of those characters like Jack Bauer and Vic Mackey. A huge thanks to the producers of this show !

    I am hoping that the sheer act of boxing things up and unpacking them at the other end will mean more junk goes! I am also hoping that the short time frame will mean I am more ruthless.
