Thank goodness this is the last season for Big Bang Theory. Anyone watching? The show has really jumped the shark. First it was Wolowitz getting married. The Raj dating not one but multiple women. Then Sheldon getting married. Now the last hold out nerd Stewart is having sex with his hot girlfriend on a regular basis. Show just isn't funny anymore. But I can't stop watching, sort of like watching a train wreck. Glad the producers of the show will finally put us out of our misery at the end of the season.

I have basically never liked or approved of this show but my MIL liked it, my wife likes it, my kids like it (I thought it was pushing racy boundaries sooner than I was ready to deal with them anyway w/ my now 13 yr old daughter; she is rock solid of course I am just weird). Anyway, here we are, and the fam is also deep into Young Sheldon.

I stopped watching when we cut the cable and I lost (free) access to CBS. Didn't miss it.

And I agree with you, HardyWeinberg, the show is incredibly salacious, my MIL can't understand why we don't show it to our kids.

I saw one ep of Young Sheldon and was extremely unimpressed (except the actress that plays the mother is a dead ringer for young Laurie Metcalf)

[EDIT] Oh, I get it now... Laurie Metcalf was clever enough to clone herself!

I only watch the shows in syndication. Didn't realize Sheldon got married. Assume he married Amy.

And what's wrong with a nerd having sex with a hot woman? Do I sense some jealousy?

Kaley Cuoco can step out my shower any day.

(non-rich) nerds pulling hot women is unrealistic.

I'd rather have Kaley Cuoco step into my shower.

Best sitcom I've seen in recent years is People of Earth. Last Man on Earth is also pretty great. (So I guess, include "Earth" in your title and I'm happy)

I haven't seen it in a while, but the seasons before they changed nights were pretty funny. There's only so much they can do to keep the show fresh, I'm not surprised that it's not so funny anymore.

There are more people on Last Man on Earth than all the people I know. How could he be last man on earth with so many people around?

But her brains (on the show and in real life) make up for her lack of hotness.

This was me with the original CSI. I had watched it from the very beginning-- on TV/DVR, like in the olden times. So over the course of 15 years, it wasn't as immediately noticeable that the show had gone entirely off the rails. Nearly original character had left or been killed, the plotlines were either recycled from other shows or from CSI itself, and there was this feeling of just grasping as whatever "ripped from the headlines" storyline could be used to fill 42 minutes. But I couldn't stop watching.

I did finally tap out around just before the end. I think I gave up right about when the CSI: Cyber crossover stuff started. I just couldn't do it anymore. Well, I mean, that's right around when we cut the cord and went to online services only, but I'm sure that had nothing to do with it.

Big fan here, lost interest after Cote de Pablo left the cast.

We don't see the newest season because we have no cable and channel 2 won't come in with our antenna. But we still enjoy all the reruns we catch on other channels. My only complaint is when Penny cut her hair short.

BBT hasn't jumped the shark until Sheldon goes full survivalist nutso, hacks and hordes every bit of alt-currency, works for multiple fascist and communism regimes to play them off against each other, and builds an underground bunker and develops weapons of mass destruction to wipe out everyone but his superspawn.

Wake me when that episode airs.

Oops, my dyslexia strikes again. My statement stands though with respect to NCIS.

The INSIDER Summary:

The five original cast members of "The Big Bang Theory" have decided to take $100,000 pay cuts in order to help their co-stars, who play Amy and Bernadette, get equal pay.
The five original members were making $1 million an episode while these two women were only getting $100,000 for the same work.
The extra $500,000 will be put towards their new salaries.

The first time I watched the show, the wife and I were at a family member's house, during the 5th season. The family member really liked the show, but the wife and I didn't, and I only saw it a time or two afterwards when visiting the same family member.

I'm sure the show will go into syndication for years to come, just like I Love Lucy, Star Trek, M.A.S.H, Friends......etc.

Agreed. BBT has been very enjoyable. Since I work 2nd shift, I basically never seen first-run prime time anything. It's been fun to see the characters evolve with life events. The show's writers did a good job adapting to the loss of Howard's mother when the real life voice actress (Carol Ann Susi) passed away.
BBT is today's Friends/Seinfeld/3rd Rock. I doubt any of the BBT actors will have much success after the show concludes. None of the Friends actors had any significant big screen hits. E.g. - Marley & Me did well for Jennifer Aniston, but that's largely cuz the book was great.

Had to look up 'vanity cards'. Didn't realize that's what those were called. Unless you've got a dvr, they're on screen for too little time to read...at least I don't read that fast.
