  1. S8 Discussion Thread

    On TBS, the guide on my TV would mix up the episodes "The Misinterpretation Agitation" and "The Prom Equivalency". This means that while one of these episodes is being telecast, the guide will display the info/description for the other episode when one presses "INFO" on the remote, and vice versa.
  2. New Episode Ideas?

    This isn't an episode idea, per se, but I would like to see a cartoon voice actor (male or female) guest-star on The Big Bang Theory. It can be on any episode, provided that they appear on-camera. It would be better if said voice actor had only done cartoons throughout his career and has never done any live-action acting work.
  3. Season 10 Ratings Thread

    I noticed that anytime TBBT airs an original episode against the NFL Draft, that episode's demo rating and viewership is usually lower than those of the original TBBT episodes that aired on the preceding week and the following week.
  4. Will & Grace

    Will & Grace is a sitcom that ran on NBC for eight seasons, from the fall of 1998 to the spring of 2006. It is about a gay lawyer (Will Truman) and a straight interior designer (Grace Adler). Also, there's Karen, an alcoholic socialite, and Jack, a flamboyantly gay actor. How many in this forum watched Will & Grace at least once, and how many are fans of W&G?
  5. Season 10 Ratings Thread

    I wanted to ask this after Episode 22 ("The Cognition Regeneration") aired: How come The Big Bang Theory (and several other broadcast-networks' programs) have to air new episodes against the NFL Draft if their ratings are going to end up being lower than usual?
  6. The Great Indoors

    The Great Indoors is a new sitcom for the 2016-17 TV season that airs in the timeslot following The Big Bang Theory. It features Joel McHale from the NBC/Yahoo sitcom Community (TBBT's former timeslot competitor). The show explores a multigenerational workforce and the generation gap among the tech-savvy Millennial online team for the Outdoor Limits magazine (Clark, Emma, and Mason), their Generation X supervisor (Jack Gordon, played by Mr. McHale), and the Outdoor Limits magazine's baby-boomer publisher (Roland, played by Stephen Fry). How many of this forum's members have stuck around after TBBT to watch The Great Indoors, or just switched the channel to something else after TBBT?
  7. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    With this "Young Sheldon Cooper" prequel being ordered to series for the 2017-18 season, I don't think CBS can afford to lose a comedy hour to a drama at this point. With TBBT, Mom, 2 Broke Girls, Life in Pieces, Superior Donuts, Kevin Can Wait, and Man with a Plan, there is not going to be enough room for other new sitcoms on the CBS primetime schedule for 2017-18, especially if the network's comedy schedule is going to be reduced from a total of four hours to three hours. Some commenters at TVByTheNumbers.com are suggesting an extra hour of drama to replace a comedy hour on CBS's primetime schedule.
  8. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    I'm not sure if I would want this "Young Sheldon" prequel getting a series order for next season. A TBBT spinoff I'd rather see would focus on Bernadette, and probably Amy.
  9. The Big Bang Theory Ending With Season 10

    Another question regarding TBBT's expense: I wonder how expensive NCIS is compared to TBBT? A couple of factors: The original NCIS debuted four years before TBBT. NCIS is produced by CBS Television Studios while TBBT is produced by Warner Bros. Television. NCIS always gets a lower 18-49 demo rating than TBBT, yet NCIS's total-viewership figures are always higher.
  10. The Big Bang Theory Ending With Season 10

    Two and a Half Men ran for a total of twelve seasons (2003-2015). Do you think The Big Bang Theory will have less seasons than Two and a Half Men just because TBBT has more main cast-members than TAAHM (TBBT has seven main cast compared to TAAHM's five)?
  11. Another comparison between Friends and TBBT that I want to mention: Friends had six main characters throughout its entire run, meaning it started and ended with those six main characters. The Big Bang Theory, on the other hand, started its run with five main characters, and that number increased to seven main characters after its season four. And right now, TBBT also has two additional main characters who have not appeared in every episode since their actors joined the main cast.
  12. 6.03 The Higgs Boson Observation

    There is a scene in this episode where, while Howard and Bernadette were video chatting when Howard was on the International Space Station, Howard suggested that he and Bernadette talk in code. "From now on, "Frog" is me, "Sandwich" means you, and "Lemon" means rocket. So, come on, Sandwich, build me a Lemon ’cause Froggy wants to come home." I was thinking, should "Sandwich" be Bernadette's new nickname? I wonder what anyone here thinks about this.
  13. Thursday Night Football and CBS for 2016

    I also want to mention the fact that it may not help matters if a fan of both TBBT and WWE doesn't have a DVR at all.
  14. 808 The Prom Equivalency (November 6)

    ^^...Well, yes.
  15. Thursday Night Football and CBS for 2016

    One other thing I wanted to mention about WWE: WWE SmackDown, upon its premiere in 1999, aired on Thursdays until 2005, when it moved to Fridays. Since January of 2015, WWE SmackDown moved back to Thursdays, meaning The Big Bang Theory is already airing against a WWE program right now. A note to TBBT fans: If you are also fans of WWE, you will almost certainly miss the opening segment and the first couple of matches of either Raw or SmackDown if you were to watch an original episode of TBBT, and it won't help matters if you DVR-record either TBBT or Raw/SmackDown.
