The smartest man in television?

Could Chuck Lorre be the smartest man in television? That is the question New York Magazine asks in a feature on Mr. Lorre, the co-creator of Two and a Half Men and the new hit The Big Bang Theory. The article's main subject is the TV Week feature that listed the 25 smartest people on television, in which Mr. Lorre finished 20th. That intellectual league table became the subject of the vanity card on this week's Big Bang. In the end the feature does not declare him the intellectual supremo of the television pack, but they do say they shall be paying more attention to CBS Mondays.

Since The Big Bang Theory broke 10 million viewers the press coverage of the show has markedly increased. In the last couple of weeks we have seen features in USAToday, TV Guide, the prestigious Wall Street Journal and now New York Magazine. As more and more viewers are beginning to take notice of the show, so too are the journalists.
