  1. Don’t know if anyone else saw this, but Alaina Meyer, the mother of Johnny’s son, is now engaged to her boyfriend. I don’t think it means any kind of change in their agreement in regards to Avery.
  2. It could be tough, other authors are struggling to get any kind of reviews. For my last multi-chapter story, I was getting a rather consistent number of readers(indicating that number was reading) but very few comments. In my experience , at best, only around 1 percent of readers actually leave a comment, even back when the show was on. These days its still only about 1 percent, and there are fewer readers, which means even less comments. While I love getting comments, I’ve had to start looking at the number of consistent viewers as a guide as to whether people like the story.
  3. Season 5 (good call, NSL), Episode 16, The Vacation Solution. Penny: You know, I’m a big believer in breaking bad news to a guy when you’re in bed with him. That’s how I told my high school boyfriend I slept with his brother. Penny was talking about her friend Christie in Season 1, Episode 7, The Dumpling Paradox. Penny: " Well, she was engaged to my cousin while she was sleeping with my brother, so she’s kind of family."
  4. I was debating posting this last night, but decided not to. Guess I should have. Basically , the original outlet has a history of posting stories about exs getting back together. Best bet is to check gossip cop. https://www.suggest.com/johnny-galecki-kaley-cuoco-big-bang-theory-hung-up-co-star/2625857/
  5. Kaley giving some support to Pete Davidson. After Kanye West's latest video (which shows a clay doll, with an appearance like Pete being kidnapped, tied up, and buried alive), Peter Gunn offered the following post on IG: "For the record, Pete Davidson is one of the nicest, sweetest guys I know. A truly generous, tender & funny spirit, he treats everyone around him with respect," Kaley answered Peter's post with this: "Fact ❤️"
  6. There are two instances of Leonard and a cute tushy. Both in season six, episode 21, The Closure Alternative. There is this exchange, after Penny calls "Buffy the Vampire Slayer, cute and Leonard objects: Penny: What’s wrong with cute? Leonard: It just makes things seem small. It diminishes them. Penny: So you want me to stop calling your little tushy cute? Leonard: You can try, but nobody’s gonna believe you. Later in the same episode is this: Penny: See, that’s the kind of passion I didn’t think I had. But then I realized I’m passionate about you. Leonard: Oh, my cute little tushy strikes again. Those are it for Leonard and his cute tushy.
  7. Yes, TLW gave us a great story. I loved the little details. First chapter of my new one on Sunday night/early Monday morning.
  8. Oh, I know their teams make it happen. I was just doing a play on words, using the title of the two series that were mentioned. Deals like this are actors and their teams dream of. They are the gift that keeps on giving.
  9. There is a six month wait between filing and the earliest a divorce can be finalized in California. She filed on 3 September, so the Earliest it can be finalized will be 3 March. I wonder if she stopped following after getting no response ( or perhaps a request to not comment ) from her comment on his account.
  10. Hey, they were smart enough to demand a cut of the back end of the show. Can't fault them for that. And, as much as Warner Brothers is making off the sale, along with Lorre and Prady getting about ten times more than the actors, along with there being actors in my family, it's hard for me to begrudge them the cash.
  11. Look at it this way. Over the last three years, broadcast television, overall, has lost about 18% of of ratings from the previous year. Over it's last few years, TBBT generally fell at the same rate as broadcast television. Now trends can't alway be extrapolated, but if the show had lost 18% of its ratings, for each year since it went of, it would finish this year at a 1.25 rating. To give you an idea, there are no entertainment shows that are averaging over a 1.0 this year. The highest was the Fall, Survivor at 0.95. It would have taken TBBT losing over 25% of its audience, each year for all three years to drop below a 1.0. Or, we can go with Young Sheldon as an example. It has averaged about 21% lost per year, since TBBT went off the air. That would give TBBT a rating of 1.10, still over one, and still the highest rated entertainment show. For those who are curious, Young Sheldon has a 0.69 rating this year. And, as bad as that sounds, it is still the highest rated live action sitcom on broadcast television this season. It's in 15th place. I say live action as The Simpsons in in fifth place, with an 0.83 rating. Call Me Kat has a 0.46 rating and is currently in 45 place, right in the middle of all 90 shows.
  12. And, just liked that, The Big Bang Theory actors get another huge chunk of change, from their back-end deals. 😉
  13. I still follow the ratings and when the new syndicated ratings came out today, I looked a bit deeper. TBBT is the only syndicated scripted show in the top ten. Every other show in the top ten, from game shows, to court shows, to entertainment shows produce new content every day. in addition to being the only scripted show in the top ten, it is also the only scripted, syndicated show above a 2.0 household rating. And one of three shows that are at or above a 1.0. Last Man Standing (1.4) and Young Sheldon (1.0) are the other two. Here is the top ten and their household ratings: Jeopardy 6.3 Wheel of Fortune 5.8 Family Feud 5.8 Judge Judy 5.3 Inside Edition 2.5 TBBT 2.3* Entertain Tonight 2.3* Dr Phil. 1.8 Kelly and Ryan. 1.8 Hot Bench. 1.6 *While they appeared tied, TBBT is rounded down to a 2.3 while Entertainment tonight is rounded up. on TBS, TBBT can still pull in an occasional 0.7 or 0.8 for the 18-49 demo. (Note demo is different than the Household rating above). This is on par ( or better) than the current ratings for most network shows.

    Penny and Leonard

    It depends on who is doing the writing. Generally, Screen Rant is not very kind to the Leonard and Penny pairing in their articles, especially after season six. There are the occasional nice pieces (such as the one posted) or when they point out the imbalance with Shamy, but overall, they tend to write about the negatives of the Lenny relationship, without mentioning the reason behind those negatives..
  15. It’s called the rule of funny, and generally applies to all sitcoms( there are exceptions). If the writers think something is funny, consistent characterization be damned, write the joke. You can see it a lot in Sheldon when it comes to his eidetic memory.
  16. I had heard it before and really don't think anything of it. If Molaro didn't know, then that had to be the first Comic-con, between the first and second season. They were together for over a year after that, so it couldn't have been that serious of a fight. Couples have fights, it looks like they got over it and continued.
  17. The 74, 82, and 48 were jokes. He was simply kidding her.
  18. “Mooks” is a nickname the call each other( along with “J” and “K”) . No, she’s not 48, turned 36 this past November. Last year Johnny wished a happy 74 birthday to his fake wife and later congratulated her on reaching 82. So, only calling her 48 this year is a bit of an improvement. 😂😂😂
  19. Did you notice that one of the categories in Double Jeopardy was "Fun With Flags"?
  20. Chuck Lorre donating $7 million to renovate the Venice Family Clinic. The article mentions his foundation has donated over $17 million previously: https://news.yahoo.com/producer-chuck-lorre-donates-7m-184647793.html
  21. She smoked while she was dating Johnny and there are some reports and pictures of her smoking before even TBBT. She could have picked it up again when she was shooting Meet Cute with Pete Davidson, who smokes. The following was the first I've seen of her smoking since she was dating Johnny. It's a shot of her in NYC last August (which was before the divorce) when she was shooting the movie with Pete.
  22. Don't know if you noticed, but Zosia had a bunch of Happy Birthday Balloons attached to a stall door. Near the bottom was "Big Bay City." So, it appears she's still at Kaley's.
  23. CBolt, now there’s a name from way back. You are one of the few who predate my time on the forum. I really really still miss Mike. (Walnut)
  24. Feeling a bit sad tonight. I noticed a name on the birthdays, it was someone who was very important to me in my early days here on the forum (there aren't too many people you can have a discussion about how prior probability could affect Bayesian Inference in an analysis of the forum members) . I checked and the last time she was on was May of 2013. She posted that her laptop had died and it was a struggle using her work computer. According to her profile, she checked back in the next day, and that was the end, she never came back. I've had several members like that. You develop a bond with a member, something happens and they disappear and they are gone. Some, like mjc45 died, some just got tired of the show, so got tired of the forum, and some, you don't know what happened. Anyway thinking about all the people her I miss.
  25. I made a small change to the title of this thread.
