    I'm guessing he's become the bane of tired sitcoms that don't know when to quit as he was producer of Two & A Half Men and of course the brainless show that knows no end in sight, The Big Bang Theory.

    The Big Bang Theory - 10 years and counting

    How has McGyver gotten a full season pick up?

    I hope Lethal Weapon gets a second season, and Timeless too.

    What is Designated Survivor like? Is it anything like Madam Secretary (which I watch)? Or is it more like Agent X, or like that Katherine Hiegel presidential series which was cancelled after only half a season?

    Lethal Weapon is pretty much a lock at this point for a second season.

    We're on a forum celebrating franchises that are at least 3 movies deep, have likely been rebooted once or twice, and are based on comics going back anywhere from 50-80 years. I don't harp too much on originality and don't really get those that do.

    My main issue is that they're taking something that could very possibly be terrible (remake of a TV classic) and making it a certainty (network with a God AWFUL comedy brand).

    They're going to do a "Straight to the Moon" at the end of the pilot and open episode 2 with him in jail.

    That actually seems more interesting to me, because it's almost like he intends it to be like a play being performed by a new company of actors. Plus, it's short-term, rather than potentially ongoing.

    And aside from watching TBBT sporadically I've never seen or cared for any of the other shows.

    But the deal is a lot of people did. Enough that it made economic sense for the networks to keep producing them year after year and greenlight Lorre into making more of them.
    He knows how to make shows lots of other people want to watch.

    Loads of people turn out for The Big Bang Theory while Happy Endings barely scraped by for three seasons. Y'all are trash. :argh:
