The Big Bang Theory is extremely popular and is getting extremely good ratings. Many of things on it are "nerdy" and still many people watch it. I have triedto enjoy this show may times and have not laughed no matter how much I try. I just don't get the sho. Even with the nerdy material I dont find it funny. The show follows cliched sitcom storylines and the laugh track makes the jokes fall so much more flat. I like other shows that are "nerdy" and much funnier for example Community which is original, inventive, and going to be cancelled probably after this years shortened season. I think Community's Abed is way funnier the BBT's Sheldon. Someone please explain this show to me and why it is so popular.
