The part that makes me 100% agree w/ Drew is because The Office once was a brilliant show. The CBS comedies, excluding The Big Bang Theory ... of course they're awful. They always have been and haven't ever aspired to be any different.


The other part is how much of a piece of shit, evil corporation NBC is.

Was King of Queens on CBS? That probably was the only sitcom with a laugh track that I generally liked.

Yeah, it was. I like that show a lot. KJ makes me laugh, Jerry Stiller was great, Patton is a king, and I had a pre-teen boner for Leah Remini.


And How I Met Your Mother is (was?) genius.

How I Met Your Mother is decent. It has it's moments.

Are you fucking serious? An episode devoted to "cold sore = herpes = call my old exes!" had "depth"? Give me a break.
That's marginalizing the episode a bit. Yea, it started off as that but morphed into a look back at Michael's naivety in his relationships.

Raymond was another meh show. While not terrible, there wasn't really anything outstanding to its writing and its acting.

It makes me really happy you like that show. You're a bit cynical and hard to please, so if you dig it, there is hope yet. Haha.

That show is like Seinfeld...consistently pretty funny, regardless of the episode.

I can't speak for TBBT, but there's is no way The Office is worse than STMDS, TAHAM, or Mike and Molly. The last two episodes were actually pretty decent and had depth. Something the listed completely lack.
disagree, I think all those shows suck and that all the characters on The Office lack depth and are just caricatures of what they used to be.

I'm a horrible cynic. Wish I wasn't, honestly, but whatever, haha -- I've grown to live with it. But yeah, the first 3 seasons are some of my favorite television from the past 10 years. 5 was a huge dip, but 6 has been really good.

I can't afford to buy 5, so I'm watching it ep by ep as Lifetime posts in on demand. So I'll prob be late to season 6, too. I don't think anything's as good as their first two seasons, but it's consistently funny and touching, every episode of every season, and that's worth being excited about.

I liked season 5 of HIMYM, it wasn't as good as the previous four seasons, but still better than most sitcoms. season 6 has been great so far.
