Re: Renewed... for three more years!

To those who still watch, is this actually funny still? I gave up on it at the end of season five or six...whenever Howard was getting married. Show was funny to me in the first few seasons, but Amy and Bernadette brought the show down plus recycled storylines.

Re: Renewed... for three more years!

I still find it entertaining. Admittedly though, as far as sitcoms go, I'm not that hard to please.

don't sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things

Most sitcoms can be dropped at any time. It's not like Lost or Revenge when you've invested some time in it and dropping it too soon will forbid you from finding out how it all ended.

Just like smoking and drinking can be dropped at any time!

I find it hard to make the final decision to drop a show if I have watched it for ... what now - 7 years?

There has to be like 2 or 3 really bad episodes in a row for me to do that.

Re: Renewed... for three more years!

Yeah, of course it depends on how much you're attached to the show. smile I had no problems dropping HIMYM and TBBT a few years ago, but on the other hand I gave Scrubs several chances in its horrible final season.

Same here, i'm very easy to please when it comes to comedy shows.
I don't particular have to laugh often but i either like the cast or am atleast entertained enough to continue.

Re: Renewed... for three more years!

I watch it, but come on, is it anywhere near deserving a full 3-year order?

Nope.

Nope.

Ratings and 'media buzz' wise, yes.

Which other shows get the same treatment?  Comedy, drama or otherwise?  Not many, if any.  So are we to believe that TBBT is one of the best shows on US TV?  If that's the case, we're doomed.

TBBT is easy to produce and has a solid fan base, as a sitcom the most difficult part is to make sure it is still funny but Chuck Lorre makes a very good job with this.
If a concept works, it's most wisely to continue it. And for another example, take a look at The Simpsons wink

Re: Renewed... for three more years!

Five years later after that three year deal, its still killing in the ratings.   Looks like CBS made the right choice.

Re: Renewed... for three more years!

It's still funny in a non LOL kind of way, just gives you a gentle grin every so often. And it also has its moments. The extra couples direction does make it a bit dull on some fronts but the females only scenes gives a nod to the female viewers with some jokes we can relate to, I think that's what they're going for there.
