  1. Week 27, Syndicated ratings, Wednesday, March 22, 2017 Based on week Twenty-five numbers, 06-12 Mar, 2017. Top Ten in Households: Show Household Rating Judge Judy 6.9 Family Feud 6.7 Wheel of Fortune 6.5 Jeopardy 6.4 TBBT 5.1 Law and Order:SVU 4.0 TBBT Weekend 3.7 Dr Phil 3.5 Entertainment Tonight 3.2 Family Feud Weekend 3.2 Top ten in 25-54 Women: Show 25-54 Women Rating TBBT 3.3 Family Feud 3.0 Judge Judy 2.7 Law and Order:SVU 2.4 TBBT Weekend 2.4 Wheel of Fortune 2.2 Jeopardy 2.1 Modern Family 2.1 Family Feud Weekend 1.7 Dr Phil 2.6 I've gotten the question as to why the 25-54 rating. For daytime shows, the women 25-54 is the more important ratings. As you can see, TBBT still does rather well with this demo. There is a show called Weekend Adventure. It is a group of nature programs broadcast during the day on weekends for kids. I've pulled it as it is not late Afternoon/early evening programming. Tensor

  3. We've seen her mother, she's part of Amy's family. So, your comment that, "We won't see Amy's family" is incorrect. In fact, all we've seen are parts of everyone's family, we have yet to see anyone's entire family,

    That's about three hours from me.
  5. Non-Show Discussion

    Yes, it was already posted. In the season 9 discussion thread, as it's about the 200th episode. It actually might be better int he Non-season 10 show discussion thread, since it is about a season 9, episode.
  6. M and M are not likely to get parity. At least not this year and even next year. It appears the rest of the cast took less money, to get M and M closer to parity.
  7. Ya know, I did that same analysis a couple of years ago, I included Simon and Kunal, and I think I used better numbers(at least the speculation from Trade papers). Of course I wouldn't have had season 11-12. Maybe I should stop writing here and start writing for web sites. At least I would get the damn number of episodes right.
  8. We don't have a NSQ in the states. Basically when you get hired at a university in a tenured track position, they look at education, research, and published work(which is an extension of research and can include those works for the general public). I suppose someone could jump disciplines, but I can't remember anything like that (except for some closely related fields, if others know of examples, please let us know). Basically, if you go into physics, unless you change fields completely (along with the education and research) or make a serendipitous discovery in another field, you will get hired and move up in physics, although it doesn't have to be at the same university that hired you originally. You can get hired into a tenured position at another university, but they generally don't like to do that, as it creates friction with the department. Not saying they won't hire someone like that, if it does happen, it's usually someone pretty well known, or has a made a major discovery, and it's to bring in research money to the university. Yeah, I knew that, but for some reason my fingers aren't cooperating this morning and afternoon. They are going to keys on their own, as I have to correct lots of spelling mistakes today, I may have to just soak them in coffee, as drinking it hasn't seemed to work for them today.
  9. Can anyone else see his Brother in a chicken suit, chasing Sheldon?
  10. Positions within a department are tenured. Positions within a department are tenure track. The number of tenured positions in a department (and a university for that matter) can change, if another position is endowed. A full professor (which Burt is, as there are no qualifiers before the Professor), would be tenured position. And, a new Professor of Geology would come from Associate Professors of Geology (which could, depending on the university's rules, also be tenured). There would be someone in the Geology department, who is tenure tracked, that would get the Associate Professor of Geology, if that is tenured. Technically, none of the guys were really up for Tupperman's position. They were up for the position of whoever replaced Tupperman, simply because only a tenured position would replace a higher ranking tenured position.
  11. Nope. For one thing, I doubt Sheldon would want to be a professor of Geology. For another, it's not his field, and I'm sure there are other more worthy candidates in the Geology department. For a third, I'm also sure there are associate professor who are in line before a junior professor, wherever that falls in the pecking order.
  12. Hmmmmmm, Burt has tenure.
