I've often thought that Carol Burnett would make a good Meemaw for Sheldon.

Barbara, you are wrong. It is perfectly acceptable to follow "I feel" with an adjective. You are describing your state of being not your action. If you were to say "I feel badly" you are suggesting that you are bad at feeling, not that you feel bad. Would you also say, "I feel coldly," or "I feel happily"?
Barbara Federman United States, 18:17 Feb 8 2016.
No character on this show, especially JIM Parson's, would say "bad" in conjunction with how he feels. He does, though, feel "badly!" Please correct your use age of this word. It is driving me crazy.

I will miss tonight's episode because of a lousy cable carrier. When will it rerun?

Hi Big Bang! The show is "GENIUS" and absolutely the best written show ever! I'm hooked and watch it 2X a day. Would love a twenty-four hour series. This show has given me more laughs and pleasure watching than any in my entire life. I don't think I could have made it going through a trying time in my life without TBBT...Love Love Love Love Love Love and Love all the characters. Would be honored to get tickets to watch a taping now that I'm retired. Taught 4th/5th grade for 30 years and now it's time to enjoy life after giving so much to my students. I keep trying on to get tickets on Monday mornings, but have no luck. My sister-in-law is also hooked and would enjoy coming with me. Please let me know if we can get tickets to a showing. Keep writing and bringing good laughs to the viewers. Thanks - Cheryl Schuler

Ditto. I,too,am tired of weeks between each episode.The show doesn't flow well with weeks apart of stories.

Hey guys, hope you're doing all fine. just wanted to tell you that these gaps between the episodes like 2 weeks, 3 weeks doesn't make sense and honestly kinda losing my motivation. I hope you read this Mr. Lorre cause there's no excuse for that. When I buy them on iTunes I just pay for the whole season all at once to support the show I like, you guys are not doing a good job on the airing of it. Each year the same thing, what a shame! I just wish you valued your real fans more
