    I feel like 5-7 years is the ideal for most shows

    Most shows only go that long because it gets too expensive to keep going. As long as the show makes a profit most networks will happily keep going long past a series prime. It's usually a showrunner or the actors who have to quit a show that's still successful after 7 years and out of ideas.

    Comedies like Seinfeld, Freinds, The Big Bang Theory get high viewership, get high scores from the TV critics, prestigious awards like Emmys and Golden Globes, and last a long time because they are funny.

    Any time I see someone call The Big Bang Theory funny, I have to post these:

    [YT]jKS3MGriZcs[/YT]

    [YT]ASZ8Hks4gko[/YT]

    It's painfully unfunny and it uses the laugh track as a crutch and lots of people just think it's funny because laughter is contagious.

    f***ing THANK YOU!... I'm tired of all these BBT defenders of the faith who continually try to justify the existence of this waste of the airwaves... just because it's been on for all these years doesn't mean it IS funny... sometimes a fluke just happens and sticks around like a bad case of the runs... :funny:

    I still watch the show but I'll admit the only thing funny about the show is sheldon cooper

    I enjoyed BBT when I watched sitcoms. Now I dont like any of them.

    Everybody Loves Raymond never appealed to me. Ray was just too much of a whiny nasally *****. Ruined the whole damn show.

    Sheldon the least funny one for me. I just find his juvenile behavior annoying Wolowitz is the standout one for me. If they are going to do a spin-off, it should be Howard and Bernadette, with Raj as the pathetic friend always dropping in.

    Big Bang Theory is not funny at all.

    Actually the first one is still funny without the laugh track. I notice the second scene pops up a lot by people trying to claim TBBT isn't funny. But it was really just a set up for the rest of the show and I don't think that scene was meant to be
    a fall on the floor laughing scene anyway. There are much funnier scenes in that episode that would still be funny without a laugh track. For example the scene with them at Kurt's apartment.

    Marc Cherry Southern Drama Starring Reba McEntire Gets ABC Pilot Order
    Reba McEntire + Murder Mystery Soap Opera + Middle Eastern Co-Lead is really a perfect storm of concepts that I could never have envisioned would end up in a single show together, and that just makes me all the more curious to see it, good or bad.

    Sounds like an updated version of In the Heat of the Night. As for Reba, the only thing I've ever liked her in was Tremors.

    That was actually me (on my first profile). :yay:

    A few years ago (I think it was 2012?), we use to go through a few subtitles, and I was the one that got the thread changed to "The War on Chuck Loore". We just haven't switched to a new title since.

    CBS Picks Up Dana Klein/Mark Feuerstein Comedy, Andy Weir NASA Drama To Pilot
    A NASA show by the author of The Martian sounds great, but you know CBS is gonna strip away everything interesting and procedural the hell out of it if they pick it up. I don't even really know how, but they will.

    ‘Black-Ish’ Spinoff Starring Yara Shahidi In Works At ABC From Kenya Barris & Larry Wilmore

    Given that family comedies are their bread and butter now, I'll be curious to see if a college-set show works out.
