Hugh Laurie, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'This past Friday, Hugh Laurie was on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) in anticipation of the Super Bowl. As FOX was hosting the event, he had tickets to go, but admitted to knowing very little about football.

"I don't even understand the first thing about the game," he said. "This I know will annoy people who desperately want to go to the game, and I'm taking a ticket. Sorry."

Still, the star was excited, and despite not understanding the rules, he said he could recognize the athleticism of the sport.

As for where he was sitting, Laurie had no idea. He theorized, though, that placement could be very revealing. "I suppose we will find out just exactly where we rank in FOX's affections by where we're sitting," he said.

He speculated the cast of 'House' could find themselves up in Row ZZ, looking "at 'Glee' down in the front row." 'Glee,' of course, had the lead-out slot from the Super Bowl this year. The last time FOX broadcast the game, in 2008, the spot was held by 'House.'

Certainly, 'Glee' is the top scripted show on the network right now, a place 'House' held for several years, but Laurie's series is no ratings slouch. Even if it is a ranking by ratings, 'House' should be right up front alongside 'Glee,' 'Bones' and 'American Idol.'
