Tensor Posted July 20, 2017 Posted July 20, 2017 TV back then wasn't must see TV either, that was simply a marketing ploy by NBC. I only saw episodes of those three sporadically, as I really had no interest in any of them. There were also people who thought Seinfield, Friends, Cheers, wouldn't stand up to the the shows in the seventies and eighties. TBBT still brings in around 20 million viewers in a week. Only two to four million less than Friends. While Friends was three to five million less than a show like Cosby , in the mid to late eighties, which was four to six million less than All in the Family in the early 70s. TBBT, this past year had right at 19 million viewers, on an average week. This would have put it in the top 10, in 2003-04, the last year of Friends (it would have finished eighth). And this after an almost 50% reduction in viewers over the last ten years. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
