So what was the catalist to change that is season 3?

The breakout status of Sheldon.   They started using Sheldon more and more.  Add to this was Penny and Leonard spent most of the season together, so there really wasn't the pull from the Penny side, that side had won.

He is promoting the show cause it's his job. Of course he will talk this up to make people watch. They did the same with both Lenny weddings back in the day.

 

Since season 8 was a cliffhanger how could they promote a wedding that wasn't for sure going to happen?

Sounds good to me! Very different weddings for very different couples. Would be a tad boring if they were all the same. I think the writers did a great job incorporating the personalities of all the different characters into the story and thier respective weddings. 

While I sort of agree with what you're saying the part that really bothers me is the effort the writers put in writing each wedding, and the stuff they pulled for each one. In Lenny's case the first one was so bad they had to have a re-do. And something that I always think about: why did Sheldon have to be between Leonard and Penny when Bernadette was officiating?

I said "weddings" , not "season finales before the weddings".

My point was how could have possibly promoted their first wedding? Secondly do you really believed they promoted either wedding as much as the one on Thursday? Your posts suggests they promoted them equally.

They did. In fact I remember the first Lenny wedding especially being oversold as the "wedding of the century" or something along those lines which caused a lot of ire here in the forums cause we had a TR that said otherwise. CBS monkeys also made a whole clipshow right down to the "8 years in the making" tagine. It was the same, if not more - it just wasn't at the end of the season but at the beginning of the new one.

Because it was happening at the beginning of S9 and I remember people being mad about it then cause the TR and final episode didn't match up the promotional talk that promised how great the Lenny wedding would be.

If i would have use your out look on life my life would have been very boring imo

I totally agree. Who has a huge problem on the way to their wedding and goes through with it? It didn't make sense to me.

I agree the writers did a really bad job with Lenny wedding. I thought eloping is fine but did not like that the writers through the Mandy thing in, I also didn't like it that it fell on the same episode as a breakup of another main couple on the show. I would have prefered the entire episode focus on the Vegas wedding. They could have made it special. They did fans a disservice. 

I don't think they wrote Sheldon to be the person who ruined the wedding. I think the Mandy/Lenny story did that. There was no need to do that. At all. 

At the very least I thought they friends could have thrown a party upon arrival back home.

I personally think the way they wrote the first lenny wedding was so that tptb could highlight sheldon getting upset at amy

Sounds like treating the viewer like...

I think thy just can not let things go the way one would expect, but promoting it as some great thing was going too far perhaps.

I remembered this. At that time, I was just a casual fan of the show, but I have a lot of friends who were die-hard fans. Some of them clearly knew more than the promos because they laughed at the promos and said what a joke or something. And I have to say, not only the episode itself, but the opening of the next episode didn't help with the situation, at all...

Till this day, 9X01 remains the lowest rated episode on IMDB...

I remember that. It was around the time I joined and it was the first TR I ever read.

From Glamour

The Big Bang Theory wrapped filming on the show's eleventh season nearly two weeks ago, which means one thing for the cast and crew: vacation. But executive producer and showrunner Steve Holland was more than happy to interrupt his time off to give us a preview of Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler's wedding. (The episode, the show's season finale, airs Thursday, May 10.)

"I'm excited, so I'm happy to talk about it," Holland tells Glamour. "And I think it's OK to reveal that Sheldon and Amy do get married. This moment has been building for eight or nine years, so, yes, they're going to make it to the wedding. There won't be anything where someone gets cold feet and runs away. We didn't believe this couple would do that." Plus, Shamy shippers wouldn't allow it.

The episode features a cast of returning favorites, including Laurie Metcalf, Jerry O'Connell, and Courtney Henggeler as Mary, Georgie, and Missy Cooper respectively. You'll also see Kathy Bates and Teller (the magician-comedian) as Amy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fowler. There's also Star Wars legend Mark Hamill. "He's playing himself," Holland says, "but his role in the episode is a surprise."

Normally before an episode as big as this, the team behind a show is hesitant to release too many pictures—lest they ruin the surprise. But this time was an exception: Holland's not worried about spoilers because fans have already seen Amy's wedding dress a few episodes back. Plus, he says, there are still enough surprises that the photos don't give everything away. In fact, there were so many special moments that they couldn't all fit into the episode. Fortunately, Holland says bonus scenes will be released on CBS.com immediately after the finale.

"This was a big episode, so there was a lot of pressure that we put on our ourselves. We felt like we really had to deliver," Holland says. "It was very important for us to get this right."

I hope these bonus scenes won't be geo blocked as they could be also avaiable in other official sources but CBS. It would be so cool if they include them in DVD though.

. The writers didn't talk about Lenny's wedding all season 8 or 9 for either wedding. There was no planning all year like shamy's. If you honestly think either Lenny wedding was promoted anywhere near as much as the golden couple, then you need to show me evidence of it. I never saw it. We found out about the Lenny wedding in episode 8/24. Then they threw in that bull about a kiss to screw up that moment for Lenny. Then, in 9/1, the wedding, we get a stupid baby making the episode about him. Will that happen to shamy, NO! So try to say Lenny's wedding, either one, was anywhere near as equally promoted. AS I said, if you still think that, show me the evidence. 

Sorry for ranting, but that's disturbing to me, Maybe it shouldn't, but it just does.

 I've stated that I was talking about the wedding episodes themselves - not about the seasons or cliffhangers leading up to them.

Of course I'm not making an argument that Lenny got the same amount of wedding planning. That's a ridiculous assumption to make about my posts.
