Great show- I don't follow it though. I LOVE Sheldon, and he always keeps me laughing. However, I feel that he's been a bit overly obnoxious recently. On the other hand, that is his character and I am predicting that due to his extreme ignorance the writers are leading up to him being shown up/ shot down... HARD.

I am way older than that 18-49 age demographic, but I wouldn't miss BBT for anything. I am also a faithful watcher of re runs and have Sheldon shirts!

I think the biggest jproblem with the show, as seen by the comments above, is there is no continuity with any story line ie; penny quits her job so how is she living, jpaying her rent and so on. the writers give you a new story line and give you one or two episodes about it and then nothing is heard about it again, its the writers fault and I hope they don't ruin the best show ever. wake up to the viewers concerns or soon you wont have any viewers. I also agree jthat Sheldon needs to be put down big time and soon, too many people are getting tired of his idiotic rule.
