Hugh Laurie and the "House" cast: Say farewell./Photo credit Fox

Fox has pulled the plug on its hugely popular series “House.” The show, currently in its eighth season, takes place at the fictitious Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. According to Entertainment Weekly, the series will wrap up the end of this season. The mag also reports that star Hugh Laurie said in November that he planned on retiring from television acting once the show ended. Meanwhile, the real Princeton-based hospital is flourishing: it is scheduled to move to a new, state of the art facility in May and officially be renamed University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro. Who says life doesn’t (at least partly) imitate art?

“True Blood”: Let’s talk about sex, baby

“True Blood” is back and better than ever!

This show is truly bloody good fun!

After a lackluster second season (in my opinion, anyway), the HBO series has *vamped* things up considerably. I’m loving the dynamic duo team of Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), and the increased sexual tension between Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) is nothing short of A-W-E-S-O-M-E. (Can’t wait for the show to delve further into the novels’ plotlines in that regard!)

Hot in the (Atlantic) City: Jon’s out, “True Blood’s” Ryan is in

Things are going pretty well for Jon Gosselin lately.

Sure, his marriage is kaput, and his soon-to-be ex-wife Kate is trashing him from here to eternity, but he’s got a pretty, young woman who’s standing by him (that would be Hailey, at least so far this week),

Vodpod videos no longer available.

he recently hung with a bevy of beauties poolside in Vegas, and “Good Morning America” lets him tell his side of the sordid “Jon & Kate Plus 8” tale in an interview set to air next Tuesday on both its show and ABC’s “Primetime” that same night.

But not everything is going Jon’s way. Take this weekend, for example. According to E! Online, the father of eight was all set to host another poolside party – this time at Harrah’s in Atlantic City – when he was unceremoniously bumped from the festivities and replaced by someone else:

Recognize him?

Recognize him?

Look familiar? He should; he’s Ryan Kwanten, who’s been burning up TV screens this summer as Sookie Stackhouse’s dim-bulb brother Jason in HBO’s “True Blood.”

Actually, it seems like Jon may have to blame TLC for the mess. E! cites a Life & Style report that the network forced Jon to back out of the gig at the same time it required Kate to cancel an appearance at another Atlantic City casino, Resorts.

So really, the big news here is that RYAN KWANTEN will be in Jersey on Saturday, beginning at 10 p.m. Go here to find out how you can join him (for only $20!!!).
