Channel Ten just announced that they're going to start airing new episodes of House at the same time as it's shown in the US. (A day later? A week? I'm not sure.) This is most likely to thwart lower ratings due to a large proportion of Australians in the 18-35 age group downloading TV shows instead of waiting for them to air here. Channel Seven recently announced similar intentions.
About fricking time. :P
(What's next? Christmas specials aired at Christmas??? Unthinkable!)
