  • Sitcoms Rule

    Go Big Bang- thats better than NBC sitcoms that air new episodes in primetime!!! I think Drake & Josh should be put back on the air with new episodes but should be put in primetime(CBS or ABC) and contain adult humor(not a kids show anymore). Drake & JOsh are both in their mid to late 20’s so it would work. the show still does great in reruns on Nickelodeon- averaging 2.5 million total viewers, 0.7 in 18-49 demo. Plus the show ended in 2007- great numbers for a great show!!!

    Last year’s RHOM “reunion” was an episode of Watch What Happens Live… apples & oranges. With no competition, I’m shocked the numbers are so low.
