Eight seasons in and most shows would be showing signs of a permanent decline. “Big Bang Theory,” on the other hand, is just as funny as ever. It’s not exactly redefining the comedy landscape, but when you turn on an episode of “Big Bang Theory,” you can always expect to chuckle a lot and laugh out loud a few times. And sometimes you cry too, like when Sheldon FINALLY told Amy he loved her. More often you’ll cringe, like when Stuart had a date with Howard’s cousin who Howard had, umm…I take it back, this is a stupid show. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. – Josh
When I first got word of John Mulaney getting his own sitcom, I was thrilled. He is one of my favorite stand-up comedians, and his writing on “Saturday Night Live” (he co-created Bill Hader’s character Stefon) promised a series that at least deserves a shot.
It was a long road for “Mulaney”to even get that shot. The pilot was initially turned down by NBC, and it had to be re-worked (including a cast change that left talented comedian Griffin Newman out of the equation) to get picked up by FOX.
