You know who's in the house? Dr. Gregory House. That guy... the one whose last name is "House"... is totally in the house. It's because Fox renewed the medical drama for an 8th season.

"House" stars Hugh Laurie as a kooky, abrasive, but also genius doctor who plays by his own rules, even when people's lives are at stake. Or rather, especially when people's lives are at stake. A recent episode attracted 7.8 million total viewers, with 2.9 million in the 18-49 demographic. What that means is "House" ain't performing like she used to, but it's not time to pull the plug yet.

The renewal is in anticipation of the network upfronts, where Fox will reveal its 2011-2012 schedule to advertisers. (TheWrap)
