Well, it was the 5th highest rated show on television last week that might give us a clue. Someone else responding mentioned "The Good Place", (a show in direct competition), if we quadrupled the audience of that show it still wouldn't equal the audience size of Young Sheldon, that might assist answering your question.

Not a good sign?

I happen to watch it every week and I think it is the best sitcom to come along in the last 15 years. The pilot was so good that it just blew me away. I understand that the "old" Sheldon can be very annoying but on this show his little quirks are actually cute and funny and create much of the laughs. It is amazing to me how a 9 year old kid actor can nail the part with such confidence and precision every week that it is just scary to watch and a wonder to behold. I can see a few Emmys in the future for sure for both him and the series.

I'm not surprised that both series are doing so well. The ratings say so in a very emphatic matter so somebody must be watching them and loving them. In Canada, the season premiere of The Big Bang Theory on CTV drew over 3,875,000 total viewers and Young Sheldon wasn't far behind with over 3.5 million (including myself for both shows!). Those are astounding numbers for a rookie series and since then it has not let up. On average both series are drawing between 1.5 to 2.5 million viewers a week, more than double the competition----to which I say, what competition?


Since Will & Grace was cancelled by NBC the first time around, that moment marked the symbolic end of Must See TV, a Thursday night dynasty than began with The Cosby Show and remained strong for about 20 years. Since then, it has merely switched addresses from NBC to CBS, where many of their hit sitcoms are now on Thursday nights, anchored solidly by "The Big Bang Theory". This year, NBC brought back Will & Grace partly as a way to reclaim their territory, but so far, even though the comeback has been a success, the overall results have failed. On Thursdays, CBS has destroyed NBC and laid to waste the other networks that it isn't even a fair fight.

When CBS was showing NFL games, I watched the NBC comedies and although they aren't too bad they aren't close to "The Big Bang Theory". "Superstore" has America Ferrara from "Ugly Betty" who I like but overall the show is very dull and uninspiring. "The Good Place" stars Kristen Bell (and let's face it, any place with Kristen Bell is a good place!) and she is very good but Ted Danson seems old, tired, and bitter. He should have never closed the bar. After about 13 more episodes, he may have to go back. Surprisingly, I find the "new" "Will & Grace" to be better than the old series, possibly because there seems to be less pressure on the cast to live up to the standards of the past, so they just seem to be winging it most of the time and having fun while they're at it. If it becomes a hit, it's like a bonus for NBC. If it fails, at least their fans are happy, so it's a win-win for all parties. Despite all this, it's still losing ratings points to "Mom", which I watch less and less of each season. Why? Because Anna Faris was supposed to be the "Mom" and the show was supposed to revolve around her. Instead, it's her old hag mom Bonnie that steals all the scenes (and all the awards) and I simply hate that.


So, to review:

Big Bang Theory - great show and better than ever;

Young Sheldon - simply outstanding;

everything else on Thursdays - good but not good enough to watch every week

I like Young Sheldon too. I think it's funny. Lot better than some of the crap on TV.

No not me. And I have no intention of ever watching it.
