Our Reaction to Jennifer Morisson’s Exit


If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears, does it still make a sound? That in a nutshell was this TV Addict’s reaction to today’s news (courtesy of super scooper Michael Ausiello) that has Jennifer Morrison scrubbing out of Princeton-Plainsboro just in time for November sweeps. Well, that and Jennifer Morrison is still on HOUSE? Seriously, with apologies to Cameron fans everywhere, news such as this would have had a far more profound affect on me had Morrison not spent the past three seasons being sidelined to make room for an entirely new team of doctors on a show that lives and dies with its leading man. Wake me up when Hugh Laurie calls it quits.

  • Ha, that was my reaction too: just don’t get rid of Hugh Laurie and I’m cool.

  • I know she’s pretty much nonexistent, but at least knowing she was a regular was good. There’s just something worse when someone is officially off the show.

  • Wow, this is kind of a shock. I have mixed feelings about it. True, she’s been oddly sidelined for a couple seasons, and the only person on the show who truly matters is House, but I’d rather see Cameron stay than Chase.

    On the bright side, I like Morrison, so this frees her up to do other things. And, it’ll finally force the show makers to change at least that one snippet from the opening credits. I think Taub & 13 deserve to be in the opener by now.

  • By the way, TVA, I think you and Ausiello had this news posted well before TVGuide.com, and I think this isn’t the first time you’ve beat them to the punch. Good work. 🙂

    I actually really liked Cameron when she was one of the regulars. Sure she hasn’t had much of a role the last couple of seasons, but the producers have been promising that this year she and Chase would be back. And now we are stuck with 13. I have nothing against Olivia Wilde, it’s just that her character SUCKS.

  • I’ve noticed a lot of other 13 haters online, but I don’t get it. I think she’s the most interesting character on the show next to House himself.

  • Liz

    Todd W – I think that’s partly the point. The show is called ‘House’ not 13, we don’t need anyone else to share the ‘self-absorbed’ spotlight House has put himself in thank you very much. Every moment she’s on screen takes away from House time. 13 – get your own show so I don’t have to watch it, or you.

    And then Cameron can stay 🙂

  • I liked Cameron, alot actually. She was there from the beginning, but let us be honest here…

    1.) They have been waning her out for the past two seasons, really we didn’t see this coming?!

    2.) This isn’t Hugh Laurie we are talking about, therefore not THAT sad.

    They say that in the storyline House seemingly tries to convince Chase to stay. I can understand that but is House also trying to get Cameron to leave? That just doesn’t sound right to me. Cameron and House have always gotten along ok and Cameron is a great doctor. I hope this all becomes clear when the episode airs and I hope we hear it from Jennifer herself why she is leaving or if she might be back like Katie Jacobs hinted to. It sounds like she was fired. I’d like to know if that is true.
