    yeah actually without 6.0 big bang theory to boost the crazy ones and two and a half men those 2 shows start to get what they deserve…

    The Millers is terrible and I switched to the baseball game. Take away The Big Bang Theory lead-in and The Millers would spin ratings into cancellation real quick. The Crazy Ones fell from a high last week, but, is still doing well in the 18 to 49 demo and total viewers.
    The predictions that Two and a Half Men is going to get cancelled keep coming after Charlie Sheen left the show, but, with the failures of many of CBS’ new shows, (and this is the last year of How I Met Your Mother), I think it will do well enough to be renewed.

    Millers was just OK. Love the actors in the cast, but at this point in time do we still have to have laugh tracks with comedies? Feels like an insult to the viewer’s intelligence watching.

    I thought The Millers was just dreadful. One of the worst new shows of the season. I don’t usually hope for shows to fail because people’s jobs depend on the shows, every show has its fans, etc.,…but I wouldn’t mind seeing this turd go down fast.

    Watched Millers because of my love of Will but it was so bad.

  • Robbie Bishop

    “The Big Bang Theory” was really good. Can’t believe it’s taken me this long to start watching it, but I’m glad that I have.

    “The Millers” was pretty crappy. Admittedly, I did laugh during it, but a lot of the jokes were either tasteless or fell flat.

    I’m really enjoying “The Crazy Ones.” I love Robin Williams and I like the show. It’s main problem is that a lot of things feel rushed.

    “Two and a Half Men” needs to die. I watched it last week, and I watched it again last night. I didn’t like it last week, and last night’s episode pretty much sealed the deal and now I probably won’t tune in any more. The writing has become atrocious, the jokes aren’t that funny, and much to my surprise, Walden has become the only character I like now.

    “Elementary” was great. Not much more I need to say about it.

    2 ‘did you f@rt?’ jokes, how original!
    Margo M. is great actress; reduced to this?

    I was appalled at “The Crazy Ones”. What an awful show. I’ve only seen the second episode, but noticed the following:

    1. I didn’t laugh a single time (because there was nothing funny to laugh at).

    2. The show and its plot is a ripoff from “Bewitched”, with Robin Williams playing Larry Tate and Sarah Michelle Geller playing Darrin. The plot on the second episode was used dozens of times on “Bewitched”.

    3. There were two hunky guys that served no apparent purpose except to be hunky.

    4. Neither Williams nor Geller appeared to be comfortable in their roles.

  • Cheryl Claussen

    Were we watching the sameprogram? I laughed until my sides ached and I am not alone most of my “geezer” friends found it to bw one of the best debuts in ages
