Nerds and TBBT

I was wondering why The Big Bang Theory is such a huge hit. Oh yes, it's brilliant, but so was Arrested Development and that only survived for two seasons.

But I think I figured it out: all the millions of nerds in the public like that the show makes fun of people who don't understand nerds. And all the rest likes that it makes fun of nerds.

It's not brilliant, but it's like Leno - nice safe laughs. Try The IT Crowd. Uneven, but much funnier when it hits.

I've seen all of the IT Crowd, I think it was really good.

Have you seen League Of Gentlemen? Risky and abstract, but genius in the eyes of many.

No, I'll have to check that out.
