  1. Ratings for the premiere of Call Me Kat were: Preliminaries had a 0.9 with 3.27 million viewers. That is quite good these days (Last year the average show had a 0.55 rating with just under 3 million viewers. Finals brought in another 0.3 with another 1.6 million viewers for a total of 1.2 and 4.9 million viewers However, the lead in for "Kat" was the postgame show on FOX, which had a 3.1 and 12 Million viewers. A better indication for Kat's ratings will be Thursday night, in it's regular time slot. Last year it started with a 1.4, then dropped to around 0.5-0.7 for the rest of the season.
  2. The trailer dropped today, there’s Kunal in the upper right in the background:
  3. From her own IG account Sharon Stone will be playing Cassie’s mother. The article from Deadline: https://deadline.com/2022/01/sharon-stone-the-flight-attendant-season-2-hbo-max-series-recurring-cassie-mom-1234907830/
  4. I enjoyed tonight's episode. As last season went on, I started to struggle with it, but I liked tonights.
  5. I'm a bit puzzled. If, as you say here, that writers can compromise the identity of a character, then this conflicts with your statement: So which is it? Do the writers construct the true self of a television character or do they compromise the identity of the character, it can't be both.
  6. Inconsistency from the writers. It’s usually called “The rule of Funny”. If it’s funny, ignore the consistent characterization. It drives fans crazy.
  7. Season 6, episode 19. The Closet Reconfiguration. I have that one memorized as the tag of that show is the start of my first fan fic, The Chew Toy Revelations. I think it could be one of three, Penny, Bernadette or Leonard, Penny's is my first choice: It was a letter explaining that your dad wasn’t who he said he was. Eventually, his other life caught up to him, and the only way to keep you and your mom safe was to leave. I'm thinking something like witness protection. Bernadette's is a possibility, Inside the envelope was a picture of your dad holding you the day you were born. On the back he wrote Howard, my son, my greatest gift. However, it's a bit too pat for me to have his wife have the right answer. Leonard's: Your dad wrote about how family is the most important thing, and that you should never throw it away like he did. I see as a possibility, but, it's not tidy. After all, he did eventually get another family, so why did he leave Howard and his mother. Why not go back to Howard and his mother?
  8. Not that I can find. They reference zombies and zombie movies in general and the Joke about 28 Days vs 28 Days Later.
  9. So, if the "True Self" or identity of a character is made up by the writers, then the writes can't compromise the identity of a character for a laugh, can they? After all, what the writers write is the character's identity. Now, I agree that we can all complain about the inconsistency of how the writers write the character. I believe we all have problems with the way our favorite characters were written at one time or another.
  10. I moved several posts to this thread. It seemed to me to fit better over there.
  11. Did anyone else note that Karl's pictures with Blueberry on his IG showed the back of their house?
  12. A couple of notes: Mario, I changed the title of your thread. This seems to fit better as we don't have a thread to discuss this situation, this will keep it all in the same place. And, while we do have this thread up, I want to remind everyone of this. Nothing in this thread would fall under comment removal, everyone did a good job about not making wild claims or disclaiming their own thoughts as simply that.
  13. Just a quick reminder, this is a ship zone, and is for neutral to positive comments about Lenny, not discussion about other characters or ships. Some posts were moved to the discussion thread and some to the Dark Lenny thread.
  14. When TBS runs a block of Big Bang, the six, eight or whatever number of shows that is on that night is usually in the top 25 of cable shows that night, usually around 0.4 to 0.6, for demo. Let's call if an average of 0.5. On Tuesday, the 12th, there were 10 shows on the four networks (not counting the CW here). Six of them were below the 0.5 average of Big Bang, four were above it at 0.6-0.7.
  15. I saw this today and just really like it. So I thought I’d post it
  16. I think he innocently put it up as a fun post about Blueberry, not thinking about how it could be interpreted. When he realized( or it was pointed out), how it may appear, he took it down.
  17. This obviously isn't your first day, is it? I don't remember anyone overthinking anything here before. 😜
  18. People like to say he doesn't know any better. But, I've had trouble believing that since Season 6, Episode 8, The 43 Peculiarity. Anyone who refers to the performance of oral sex as a chicken pecking for corn, then mimes the action is well aware and far from being clueless. I also have trouble believing he's clueless, simply because his friends and his wife have been telling him what is or isn't acceptable behavior, and since he's claimed, and demonstrated, an eidetic memory, he should be able to know what is or isn't acceptable.
  19. Season 9, Episode 7: The Spock Resonance. Sheldon: I think the same thing that appeals to people everywhere, the dream of a cold, rational world entirely without human emotion. Spock came from a planet governed only by logic. You know, on Vulcan, when your brother asks, why are you hitting yourself? the answer is, I’m not. You’re moving my arm. To which he says, Fascinating. And then you both watch educational television. Penny: Aw. When he says things like that, I just want to hug him and make everything better. Leonard: My brother was mean to me, too. Penny: Yeah, you probably had it coming.
  20. Something cute on Kaley’s stories today. She posted a clip of the show, the Lenny disaster when they go chop down a Christmas tree and bring it back to the apartment. She posted the clip. Lololols and a gif Christmas tree. At the bottom was @sanctionedjohnnygalecki It appears it’s her way of wishing him Merry Christmas.
  21. Here's two you may not have seen. The first, is a full episode of The Late, Late Show, with Craig Ferguson. It includes a skit with Craig being interviewed by the guys, to fill in for Kaley. All five were scheduled to be on the show, and then Kaley had broken her leg in the horse accident. She was still in the hospital at the time of this taping. Besides that skit, it has another skit with Simon, Kunal, and Craig, with a couple of other people. There are also the normal talk show interviews with Jim and Johnny. And, second, is the cold open and first part of the 2012 People's Choice awards, where Kaley hosted for the first time.
  22. Actually, that's incorrect. She did not wear a hidden dress in the sweat pants scene. She did wear a longish shirt, with the pants, but not long enough to be considered a dress. She also only wore pants in the Big Bang Theory Super Bowl ad, when they were all dressed in football uniforms. Her comments and take on it can be found in an article she wrote here. Also as part of tznius, she normally keeps her upper arms and shoulders covered. However, in The Opening Night Excitation, she is laying in bed with the covers pulled up to cover her breasts, but her shoulders and upper arms are not covered. In The Change Constant, she has her upper arms uncovered after getting her makeover. In her personal life, she says she sometimes wears pants and leggings under a dress at home, but only wears dresses, and keeps her upper arms and shoulders covered in public. However, she is aware that sometimes, in the profession she is in, pants and unclothed shoulders may have to happen. Speaking of the Super Bowl ad, for those that haven't seen it, it can be found here.
  23. I have to give a couple of shout outs. @chucky , You've been there for my last two stories, every week, for the last three years with a review. And most of the time, it was the first review for that chapter. You can't know how that makes me feel. @SRAM You are right behind chucky, in regards to reviews. There are times when you skip a chapter or two, but I know its due to work and when you get a chance, you do catch up reviews. @TLWand @NeckShotLime, I know you're reading, so I'm happy. Unless we get a notification of a story becoming a favorite or a review, we writers generally don't know who is reading. I've corresponded with both of you so I know you're reading. This goes for you too @Mario D. and your guest reviews. My thanks to all of you.
  24. It may be. I know I'm disappointed when I'm only getting an average of 2 to 3 reviews a chapter. The thing that keeps me going is know I have readers out there. For those who don't know, Fan fic gives you the number of people visiting and the number of pages viewed for each day, for each story, for each chapter of a story, for each chapter viewed each day....Etc. I currently get around 225 people who view the newest chapter and around 700 views of that chapter, of my current story each week. Those numbers are about 275 and 900, when you include all views of that story. This goes to about 350 people and 1100 views, each week, when you include all of my stories. One thing that shocked me, and made me realize I had some very loyal readers was a few months ago. I had been ill, I was gone on Sunday morning when I usually publish at noon, on Sunday. Anyway, I finally got around to publishing at 1 PM. I reset all my weekly views before publishing. When I went to reset, I found that there had been 125 people who had viewed my story. I usually get about 20-30 before I publish, but these were obviously those who knew I published at noon, and were checking in to read the story. It really warmed my twaddle to know that so many people knew when I published and were checking in without a notification being sent out. That being said, the number of readers for each of my stories has been dropping (In October of 2013, with only two stories published, I was getting over 600 individual readers, with over 2700 views, each week). I believe this is simply due to the show ending and fewer people are interested in extraneous stuff from the show. One of the reasons I decided to continue my current story (albeit on a longer time between publishing), is I simply need a break, and I was worried if I simply quite writing for a six to nine months, there wouldn't be anyone left around to read it.
