    Hannibal sucked! Next week its ratings will be CW-level!

    I agree 100 percent, the only people that say they don’t like TBBT are those that don’t watch it. Over the years I have gotten tons of family and friends to watch it who were apprehensive at first, and every last one of them have embraced the show.

    How can 4 million people POSSIBLY think Wife Swap is better than Community and Parks and Rec!!

    You are right Petar. Taraji & Michael have been brilliant this season. Taraji so much in fact that I believe she deserves an Emmy nomination.

    POI fans: We should all be very excited about the last 3 shows (which will be aired in a row w/ no breaks)!!!

    The show hass been renewed.
    The show has many plot twists & they just keep on coming.
    The show stays over 14 million viewers, which is 2nd only to Big Bang on Thursdays.

    So no need to argue, no need to fight, just show the love ;)
