    B Plus, there is no need for so many !!!!! enough is enough. Can we remove the comment? It’s messing up the page.

  • Peeta

    Per say, the episode was the worst of the series. How irrelevant are ratings when compared to quality.

  • NBC is awesome

    This show hasn’t been good in years. I used to love it, but it’s just the same as all those other CBS shows.

  • chezmoi

    It’s not NCIS levels yet!

  • j

    It’s not nearly at its 18-49 highs. It’s hit 6 and 5.9s before.

  • Melissa

    Lol, L+3 means nothing. I’ll be impressed when it surpasses 20 million in L+SD.

  • Cj morton

    Oh yeah! Big Bang!! :) woot woot!!!!!

  • psychic

    I forsee eight hundred seasons and that they’ll download the actors’ conciousnesses into robots to keep them alive– it’s probably in their contracts, anyway.

    Big Bang Theory proves that broadcast television is NOT dead, these networks just need the right shows. BBT deserves the recognition it gets. It’s seriously the funniest sitcom on television. And I wasn’t even a fan of it until last season.

  • Joe

    Big Bang Theory slays!! :D Totally gives me “Friends” teas once again in the viewer numbers

  • Bob

    CBS is the best network out of all of them. They really know how to attract an audience and has very good quality shows. Very impressive work for CBS. Too bad the other networks are dying on the vine.

  • Jonathan

    The Neighbors is much funnier!

  • RJ

    This season of The Big Bang Theory has been much better than last season. The game night episode was one of the best of the series! :D
