The Big Bang Theory:

Not: [A+]

1.The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the show, along with Steven Molaro. All three also serve as head writers. It premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007.

The show is centered on five characters: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense.

Over time, supporting characters have been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and, at different times, a lover of both Leonard and Howard; Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard’s girlfriend (later his wife), a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; Stuart Bloom, the cash-strapped owner of the comic book store the characters often visit, and neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, who joins the group after surreptitiously being matched to Sheldon on a dating website.

On January 12, 2011, CBS announced that the series had been renewed for an additional three years, extending it through the 2013–14 season.As of the 2012–13 television season, the series is in its sixth season, which premiered on September 27, 2012.

Two and a Half Men:

Not: [A+]

2.Two and a Half Men

Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom that was first broadcast on CBS on September 22, 2003. Starring Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones, the show was originally about a hedonistic jingle writer, Charlie Harper; his uptight brother, Alan; and Alan’s growing son, Jake. After Alan gets divorced, he moves with his son to share Charlie’s beach-front Malibu house and complicate his free-wheeling life.

In 2010, CBS and Warner Bros. Television reached a multi-year broadcast agreement for the series, renewing it through at least the 2011–12 season. But, on February 24, 2011, CBS and Warner Bros. decided to end production for the rest of the eighth season after Sheen’s enteringdrug rehabilitation and making “disparaging comments” about the show’s creator and executive producer, Chuck Lorre. Sheen was dismissed from the show on March 7.

The ninth season premiere, “Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt”, killed off Sheen’s character and introduced Ashton Kutcher as Walden Schmidt, his replacement. Alan is shown moving on with his life after the death of Charlie. He has a new best friend and housemate, Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), who is dealing with his own troubles following a bad divorce. Alan, Walden, and Jake eventually bond, becoming close friends and forming a surrogate family unit.

In 2011, a blog hosted by The New York Times referred to Two and a Half Men as the “biggest hit comedy of the last decade”. On May 12, 2012,CBS Broadcasting Inc. (CBS) renewed Two and a Half Men for a tenth season, following the announcement that CBS had closed a one-year deal with stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones.


The series revolved initially around the life of the Harper brothers: Charlie (Charlie Sheen) and Alan (Jon Cryer) and Alan’s son, Jake (Angus T. Jones). Charlie is a bachelor who writes commercial jingles for a living while leading a hedonistic lifestyle. When Alan’s wife Judith (Marin Hinkle) decides to divorce him, he moves into Charlie’s Malibu beach house, with Jake periodically coming to stay. Charlie’s housekeeper is Berta(Conchata Ferrell), a sharp-tongued woman who initially resists the change to the household but grudgingly accepts it.

The first five seasons find Charlie in casual sexual relationships with numerous women until the sixth season, when he becomes engaged toChelsea (Jennifer Bini Taylor). However, the relationship does not last after Charlie flies to Paris in the eighth season finale in pursuit of Rose(Melanie Lynskey). She was first introduced as his stalker in the pilot episode.

In the ninth season premiere, introducing a revamped show, it is revealed that Charlie died when he fell in front of a subway train in Paris. There are suggestions that Rose pushed him in the train’s path after learning Charlie had cheated on her.

Alan’s experiences are somewhat different. Throughout the series, Alan continues to deal with his son Jake’s growing up, and the aftermath of his divorce, when he has little success with women. His marriage to Kandi (April Bowlby) at the end of the third season was short-lived. In the fourth season, Alan is back at the beach house paying alimony to two women out of his meager earnings as a chiropractor.

In the seventh season, he begins a relationship with Lyndsey McElroy (Courtney Thorne-Smith), the mother of one of Jake’s friends. Their relationship is temporarily suspended when Alan accidentally burns down her house and cheats on her, but the relationship eventually resumes.

In the ninth season premiere (after Charlie’s death), the beach house is sold to Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), an Internet billionaire going through a divorce from Bridget (Judy Greer). Alan leaves to live with his mother Evelyn (Holland Taylor) when the house is sold, but Walden invites both Alan and Jake back to live in the beach house. He needs friends and the three form a tightknit surrogate family.

At the end of the ninth season, Jake joined the army; he appears occasionally during season ten. In the tenth season, Walden proposed to his English girlfriend Zoey (Sophie Winkleman) to be turned down and discovering she had another man. He becomes depressed. Meanwhile, Alan gets engaged to his girlfriend Lyndsey, while Judith leaves her second husband Herb Melnick (Ryan Stiles) after being married since the fourth season, after he cheated on her with his receptionist.

Coupling is a British television sitcom written by Steven Moffat that aired on BBC2 from May 2000 to June 2004. Produced by Hartswood Films for the BBC, the show centres on the dating and sexual adventures and mishaps of six friends in their thirties, often depicting the three women and the three men each talking among themselves about the same events, but in entirely different terms.

The series was inspired by Moffat’s relationship with producer Sue Vertue, to the extent that they gave their names to two of the characters.Coupling is an example of the “group-genre”, an ensemble show that had proven popular at the time. Critics compared the show to the American sitcoms Friends and Seinfeld.

The critical reaction was largely positive, and the show was named “Best TV Comedy” at the 2003 British Comedy Awards. The show debuted to unimpressive ratings, but its popularity soon increased and by the end of the third series the show had achieved decent ratings in the UK. The series began airing on PBS stations and on BBC America in the United States in late 2002 and quickly gained a devoted fanbase there as well. The show is syndicated around the world. Short-lived American and Greek adaptations were briefly produced in 2003 and 2007 respectively.
