  1. Laura Spencer (Emily Sweeney) was interviewed about her role on The Big Bang Theory.
  2. Well, it's that time again. This is the first post in the Season 9 ratings thread. Similar to last year, here are the plans for the ratings, while TBBT is on Monday: Monday will have the Live + 7. This is usually delayed by three weeks. I usually put it up around noon EST Tuesday will have the the Live + Same Day ratings. This includes the overnights, including households, demo, and viewers, along with the final daily ratings for TBBT. Households is usually out around 9:30-10 AM EST. The overnight demo and viewers is usually out around 11:30 AM EST. The final daily ratings are usually out around 4:30-5:30 PM EST. Wednesday will have the top ten programs for the previous week for demo and viewers. Also, around noon. Thursday will have the syndication ratings for two weeks previous. Again, around noon. Friday will usually be an off day, but I will occasionally write a post on some kind of ratings information. Once TBBT moves to Thursday, the top ten programs post moves to Tuesday, the syndication post moves to Wednesday, and the overnight and final ratings postsmove to Friday. Thursday becomes the day where an information post will go. While those times are the usual times I get the ratings, holidays, and various other things sometimes delay the information. If it will be delayed (or even not available), I usually try to let everyone know with a post. Over the next few days, I'll be putting up a post on what exactly those terms (Live + SD, Live + 7, demo, etc) mean, and how the ratings are gathered, so new members, who don't know those terms, will be able to follow along. And, of course, if anyone has a question, feel free to post it in this thread and I'll do my best to answer it. I'll also have a post on how TBBT did last year, compared to 2013-2014 and 2012-13, along with how it did compared to other shows last year. There will also be some information on how TBBT repeats did last year (hint, the repeat ratings were higher than the average of all the new shows). Tensor

  4. Kunal Nayyer will appear as a guest on UK Comedy Chat Show "The Last Leg" on Friday, 10pm UK time on Channel 4. For those who haven't heard of it, The Last Leg is a LIVE comedy programme hosted by the Australian stand-up comic Adam Hills and featuring English comedians Josh Widdecombe and Alex Brooker as co-hosts. It's in it's eighth season currently. Generally, the presenters talk about a number of major news stories and make jokes about them for the first half hour, which sometimes involve pre-recorded skits or live sketches. I suppose the nearest thing the US have to it is Saturday Night Live, but it is different to that in the fact that there is a regular host. In the second half hour, the guest (in this case, Kunal) is brought on and they have an extended chat with Hills, whilst Widdecombe often ridicules them to comic effect (all light-hearted mockery though, unless it's a politician who is the guess!). Any ideas whether Kunal is in the UK to promote something? And I wonder how he will do in a live interview in front of a studio audience?

  7. We want the Fan Fiction forum to be a place where people feel comfortable posting their work and are able to receive valuable feedback without being subject to derogatory comments. We also recognize that not everyone who writes Fan Fiction is a member here and we feel it's unfair that the author may not be aware of, and cannot defend their story against, derogatory comments. We have added four rules to better explain the framework that governs this forum. In many cases, these rules merely express what we were already considering when moderating this board. Reviews of fan fiction should offer constructive criticism. This does not preclude negative reviews, but it does mean people should express the reasons they dislike a story or believe it can be improved. Negative comments left without a reason or explanation could be misconstrued as being part of a wider agenda. The Forum and Chat rules have been updated, the new rules can be found in content section, Section 2, H.
  8. While we all like taking about our favorite actors and staff, we don't want this forum to be a place where unfounded or unverified rumors are spread. Due to some information we received this weekend, we have decided to add the following new rule to the content section of the rules: G. Posts containing links to, or comments about, unverified or unfounded rumors of either the actor's or production staff's lives, can be removed at the discretion of the Moderators or Admins. Information appearing in legitimate news sites (again, Mod or admin discretion but think ET, People, US, and network news) and/or the people themselves acknowledging any such rumors (such as Kaley posting her placard without the Sweeting) can be discussed. If you have any questions about the information, please contact the moderators or Admins with those questions before posting.
  9. This thread is being created to list those members (or others we know) who are going to a taping. This thread will be locked and only contain the names of those going to a taping. Any discussion of flights, hotels, how to get tickets, etc should occur in the "Information for attending a taping" thread (the title will be changed from "Want to go or going to a taping?). If you have tickets and will be attending, and want others to know about it, please send me or Tripper a PM giving us the dates you are planning to attend. You can also post in the Information thread. Posting in that thread, that you will be attending, will be taken as approval to add your name to the posting dates. We will make one post for each taping date, along with the names of those going. This way, those who are going can make plans to meet and attend together and they will have all the names for those attending in one place, instead of having to search through the forum. I will go through the other thread for names that are attending the first two tapings. This was rachelshamyfan's idea, so give her some credit in the other thread.

  14. News just in from www.tvwise.com: 'The eighth season of the CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory will receive its UK premiere on E4 on Thursday October 23rd at 8:30pm, it has been announced.' Good news for UK viewers as premieres for previous seasons were usually in November time. E4 have also chosen a good timeslot for the show at 8.30pm on a Thursday- there isn't much competition around on other channels so TBBT can expect to get some decent ratings. The early premiere date means that UK viewers will be just seven episodes behind US viewers.
  15. Watching the pre-game (for the American football playoffs) and it was announced that CBS will again broadcast the First eight games of Thursday Night Football. This means no TBBT on Thursdays until late October, if at all. We'll have to see if they do the Monday to Thursday thing again, or just keep it on Monday.
  16. A whole lot of shows are returning after a hiatus from the holidays, many are starting up new seasons, and some new shows are entering into the fold. Here is a complete guide to show you premiere dates for each and every show on the docket.
  17. Has anyone read or are you planning to read Eric Kaplan's book Does Santa Exist? It came today (after I ordered it late last night) and I'm looking forward to reading it. By the way, the book jacket says he's finishing a doctorate in philosophy at UC Berkeley. No wonder he always sounds so philosophical and brainy!
  18. Ryan Murphy has new comedy-horror series Scream Queens ordered by Fox.
  19. CBS has announced that the eighth season of The Big Bang Theory will premiere on Monday, the 22nd of September, with back to back episodes. The Big Bang Theory will move to Thursdays on 30 October ETA: JoeSal90 found this article on TVline.

  21. White Ribbon Day Monday is White Ribbon Day, solely devoted to changing ''the attitudes and behaviours that lead to and perpetuate men's violence against women, by engaging boys and men to lead social change.'' There will be many events across the country today to highlight it, none better than Family Fun Day happening from 10am to 2pm at Bradfield Park, Milsons Point. Apart from all the fun, the males in your family will be asked to embrace the oath ''never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women''. See you all there. LOL. (sorry for the late notice)
  22. Homeland Security Spends $ 8 0 Million On Armed Guards for “Civil Disturbances” IRS buildings to be protected; What is the federal government preparing for? Paul Joseph Watson Prison Planet.com October 21, 2013 The Department of Homeland Security is set to spend $ 8 0 million dollars on hiring a raft of armed guards to protect IRS and other government buildings in upstate New York during “public demonstrations” and “civil disturbances,” once again prompting concerns that the federal agency is preparing for food stamp riots, anti-tax demonstrations or some other form of domestic unrest. According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the Federal Protective Service (a unit of the DHS), is looking for a contractor to supply armed Protective Security Officers (PSOs) to guard a variety of government buildings in the region, including “IRS buildings(s) during tax season.” “PSOs will be required to be armed and some posts may require screening of visitors using x-rays/magnetometers,” states the solicitation. The armed guards will be used during “public demonstration(s),” as well as “civil disturbances, or other unanticipated events on an as-needed basis.” “This acquisition is for approximately 380,000 hours of Basic Service, 20,000 hours of Temporary Additional Services and 3,500 hours of Emergency Security Services per year. Currently, there are an estimated 205 guards protecting approximately 95 posts at over 55 buildings. The estimated value of this Contract is between $75M and $80M,” states the solicitation. Why does the DHS feel the need to blow $ 8 0 million dollars at a time of cutbacks on yet more armed guards to protect government buildings during “public demonstrations”? What is the federal agency preparing for? Food stamp riots? Anti-IRS demonstrations? Or some other form of civil disorder? In June, it emerged that the DHS was purchasing top of the range body armor and helmets for FPS guards as part of preparations for “riot control situations.” This followed a controversial drill last year dubbed “Operation Shield,” during which FPS agents armed with semiautomatic guns were posted outside a Social Security office in Florida. The unannounced exercise centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.” Residents were forced to show identification papers to the guards during the drill. Could the increased security around IRS buildings be related to the introduction of Obamacare? The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law. As we reported earlier this year, Federal Protective Service officers were hired to guard an IRS building in St. Louis during a Tea Party protest against the federal agency’s discrimination targeting conservative groups. The FPS has previously been used to spy on protesters. In 2011, the DHS asserted that it had every right to spy on peaceful protest groups and had been using Federal Protective Service (FPS) agents to do so since at least 2006. In March, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis admitted that the federal agency spies on Americans deemed to be “anti-government,” noting that the DHS concentrates on, “domestic terrorism and certain groups that are anti-government. We want to kind of take a look at that and receive that information,” so-called threats which included people, “putting political stickers in public bathrooms or participating in movements against the death penalty.” http://www.prisonplanet.com/homeland-security-spends- 80-million-on-armed-guards-for-civil-disturbances.html
  23. Hey there, I am a UK fan and new to this forum so hey there mah homies ... I just wanted to know how everyone would like each of the characters lives to plan out with in the next few seasons. It pains me to say this but Friends lasted for 10 years so we may not have long left. OWWWW MY ACHEY BREAKY HEART. This is what I think should happen: Shamy Season 7 A Sheldon initiated kiss A more romantic/intimate kiss (Lasts more than 1 second) Sheldon and Amy both say "I love you" Future The last 15 seconds of the very last episode of TBBT to be Shamy attempting coitus. With the closing line being Sheldon saying "fascinating" or "I didn't tell you to stop" I know a lot of people will not agree with me but I think that would be funny. It would also make fans go crazy as it would be like a cliffhanger (which Sheldon hates so much) we would never know what became of his carnal activities with Amy. Lenny Penny will eventually propose Maybe a wedding but no babies (yet) They are a really sex driven couple and it would be nice to see them be more romantic with each other. I hate how Leonard always refers to never having sex again when his relationship is on the rocks. Relationships are more than just sex. We need Leonard to get a haircut (Sorry Johnny boy) Howard and Bernadette (Do they have a combined name - Is that possible?) Babies, babies, babies. They will be the couple to have children! It will be interesting to see how Bernadette takes to her child as she hates children. I think Howard's mom should make an appearance or an episode where the families go on an outing together. Btw, what is Howard's mom's name? Do we know? Simon does an amazing Robin Williams impression. IMAGINE IF THEY GOT ROBIN WILLIAMS ON THE SHOW. That would make my life. Raj Oh poor lonely Raj He needs a girlfriend. I haven't seen much of Lucy yet and I know some people don't like her. Not everyone liked Amy or Bernie at the start either. He will start to be able to talk to all women not just Penny If they keep Lucy he could help her with her issues Stuart and Kripke We need more scenes of Stuart and Raj. Maybe, they could go speed dating or something. Kripke and Sheldon are too good together. I cried laughing at the toy rocket reference. Poor Sheldon just didn't understand that one. Oh yeah and we NEED episode where Sheldon and Leonard mothers meet. I wonder if Amy would question Leonard's mom on her kiss with Sheldon or if she will be jealous? Hmmm. I don't think I can say much more. I'm cream crackered after writing all that. SO WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN? XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
