    I like Whitney, too. But I may also be the only person on the planet who doesn't find I Love Lucy particularly funny. I also couldn't take The New Girl. I've tried to watch Big Bang Theory; I agree that it is the same gag over and over, but it is also an offensive stereotype of Nerds.

    I'm a nerd, and I think it's hilarious.

    Okay, I'm not quite the stereotype as it's portrayed, but geek culture is huge these days.

    I don't find BBT offensive as a geek. What's really cool is that they get actual scientists and a real astronaut to make an appearance as themselves, let alone a regular cast member with a Ph.D in the same field as the character.

    That's definitely what makes the show better. We talk about it at work a lot and how they get things right. So far only one thing we've caught has been wrong and that was on the iPhone app episode a couple of years ago.

    being accurate does not mean offensive.

    Put Ben & Kate on the Cancellation Watch. The writing tanked. Brutal. Pointless drivel.

    It seems like the networks haven't been as aggressive with their cancellations this year, compared to the prior couple of years. It's nice to see most new shows given at least their initial half season orders to find an audience.

    And - surprise, surprise - NBC is doing fairly well in the ratings.

    CBS has axed Monday comedy Partners. Next week will feature a 2 1/2 Men rerun in the 8:30 slot.

    The only surprise there is that it lasted this long.

    I don't want waste my time on a story that has no end. Why start watching something you know not enough people liked to keep it from being cancelled?

    Because you like the show? :)

    I don't plan on stopping watching shows just because I know they won't run long.
