Well, I don't know about you, but I went straight to tvguide.com and emailed Roush and praised him for this. Check it out, it's from today's TV Guide.

Question: We all know that House's Dr. Gregory House is a misanthropic, tactless, skirt-chasing genius. We also know that the only friend he has is Dr. Wilson. What are Dr. Wilson's feelings toward House? Is it purely friendship or, perhaps, something more? I don't think I could handle a change in their relationship, especially on House's part. — Jennifer

Matt Roush: Surely you're not suggesting what I think you're suggesting. But no. This isn't a case of new-millennium "confirmed bachelorhood" or anything, although there are times that Wilson seems an awful lot like a nagging spouse. But now that they're playing "house," so to speak, as "roommates" since Wilson's marriage fell apart, the dynamic here is more Oscar-Felix (as in The Odd Couple) than, say, Will and Jack of Will & Grace. This is being played for laughs, not for some sort of unrequited romantic tension. This isn't "Brokeback Hospital," unless I'm missing some big signals here.

I cheered (inwardly) when I read this! ;-) It's so obvious it shouldn't need saying, but I'm glad he did.
