Officially renewed for two more seasons, 24 episodes each season.


Good, because this season wasn't inching towards a satisfying conclusion.

The "young Sheldon" series is also happening, with old Sheldon playing narrator. I cringe when I think about it. I also think it was already done as Dexter's Lab in Cartoon network. Come on, Dexter wore gloves at all times!

The child actor cast in Young Sheldon is starring in an HBO series that began last month. Big Littles Lies Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus: Bitingly funny and highly addictive, Big Little Lies is a twisty, thrilling, enlightening ride led by a first-rate cast.

BB stopped being funny at least 3
years ago. I have stopped watching
Modern Family, it jumped the shark
2 seasons ago.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Yesterday was the premiere of Season 11, and also of "Young Sheldon." Unfortunately the transmission kept freezing for 15-30 seconds sporadically, SO I missed about 1/4 or so of each show.

They'll both be rerun today, hopefully I can catch what I missed.

TBBT
17.65 million viewers for the premier season 11
15.82 million viewers for the premier season 10
18.20 million viewers for the premier season 9
18.08 million viewers for the premier season 8
18.99 million viewers for the premier season 7

The first five years the show was ranked #68, #40, #12, #13, #8 and I think it was David Letterman who joked that people were going to see a 50 year old Sheldon
Jim Parsons was aghast about how horrible that would be, but he is now age 44.
The last five years the show was ranked #3, #2,#2,#2,#2

This year's season premier of NCIS had 13.29 million viewers, so it looks like TBBT will remain the most watched scripted show on TV behind Sunday Night Football.

Watching the season premiere of TBBT I got to thinking: what discount do you suppose they get on rent due to the elevator not working for 11 years?

I can't believe that the The Big Bang Theory was finally beaten in the ratings. The unlikely new champ is "Young Sheldon".

What is wrong with people?

I've seen the first two eps of Young Sheldon. It's ok, but not to the level of TBBT. besides, it has a lot of continuity to keep. Not that TBBT keeps all continuity well. Example: in one ep Sheldon claims he doesn't dance(*). In another he says he took dance lessons and is an expert at various kinds of dances (and he demonstrates this).


(*) For some reason there's a related dialogue about multiple universes each containing a Sheldon Cooper, and this happens:

Penny: Are you fun in any of them?
Sheldon: The math suggests in some I'm a clown made of candy. But I don't dance.

Little things, but something a veteran Trekkie would notice.
