It's a good thing he's not wasting any time finding a job. He won't have one after this season of House. I always liked his character in the show and I will miss some of them but I think they should stop while they're ahead.

I hope his new show does well...I don't know yet if I'll be watching yet.

I agree, I hope Hugh Laurie can find work/isn't typecast.

It sounds like a solid premise.

I actually think that this show sounds terrible, because of the focus they put on his "personal life" in the synopsis. The firefighter premise sounds good, but I can't see it doing more than one season.
