    There's much less of a tradition of bipartisanship in the House, and if the GOP went to these lengths to prevent hearings in the Senate, I think it might just focus more attention on the House hearings.  I think the only practical effects of Senate control are which matters reach the floor (which is a very important one, for sure), and how much staff the Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats get to have (which is also nothing to ignore).
