    I think you’re demo for the House Repeat is incorrect

  • J

    Wow look at those ratings for HIMYM. I think that’s gotta be a season high. I think I’m actually enjoying Big Bang more right now though.

  • Ace

    Anyone else feel like last night’s HIMYM focusing on smoking seemed so insanely out of left field for the show? And not at all in a good way.

  • Ace

    J – It is great, but I’m sure it has to do w/ the fact that everything else was a repeat, Christmas special, or on NBC. :-P

  • John


    I agree. It is similar to when an actor shows up on an established show and is identified as a regular’s best freind and we have never heard of them before.

    Did not enjoy HIMYM one bit last night! On the other-hand, BIG BANG THEORY was hilarious thanks to the return of Christine Baranski. There is nothing she doesn’t do that I don’t absolutely love.

  • Dave

    I’m usually not a big fan of Two and a HAlf Men but that and BBT last night were seriously laugh out loud hilarious.

  • Ace

    TVA — I haven’t watched BBT yet, but I am pretty excited for Christine Baranski. Not that I dislike her on The Good Wife (the ones that I have seen), but I wish she would be on a comedy full time.

  • Nick

    I watched the CBS sitcoms, as well. HIMYM?–yawn. AOP–when was Jenna Elfman *ever* funny? 2.5Men?–is it time for BBT, yet?

    I’m with Ace, Christine Baranski is such a reliable comedy actress, ever since Cybil. We need to see more of her. And bring back Sara Gilbert, too.

  • Amy D

    These number are even more proof as to why The Big Bang Theory should have got a Golden Globe nom.
    It’s the funniest show out there right now.
