    This interviewer asking the hot button questions about a friggin tv show. Can you let it be a tv show? Did you not enjoy all of the characters including Raj? I bet you laughed at his Indian jokes. Why try to cause trouble. Geez

    Big Bang Theory was a great show. It will be missed. I am sure that they did not mean it to be exactly similar to the real-life Nobel Banquet.

    I was told this no-tiara thing by a Nobel laureate friend. In real life, before leaving for Sweden, they are given explicit directions as to who can wear what at the Nobel Prize Ceremony and the banquet. Sweden has a royal family, and their strct directions are that only the Swedish Royal family ladies are allowed to wear tiaras at the Nobel Banquet.
    In the United States, people can wear tiaras if and when they want.

    What a misleading graph @ 1:09. It shows only 100,000 more viewers but the bar is twice as high. Trying to make us think that twice as many viewers watched BBT over GoT. Nice try. FAKE NEWS? 😉

    Ofcourse there is stereotyping, SO WHAT.. How is that wrong..??? It's all about the shared quirks of majority of a particular common group of folks..and exaggerating that... . It's sweet and funny.... It's about laughing at our selves. . why do we have to be so apologetic about stereotyping, as long as it's not toxic..

    I barely watched the series, but I loved the few episodes I saw. So I got seasons 1 to 10 and hooked up my wife and slowly watched season 11 and 12. My wife cried with Sheldon's speech, it was wonderful. And happy for Leonard and Penny. Gonna miss the gang.

    • Cliffy4469
      Cliffy4469 Month ago +1

      Sheldon's speach should have come with a Kleenex Alert, as I doubt that there was a dry eye, anywhere in America, and all the other countries that BBT was aired.
      It'd be remarkable, if BBT could come back, in 2020.

    Personally, I will miss "The Big Bang Theory" so much, even though I was a little disappointed in "Raj" not getting the right girlfriend, which I felt that the writers should have thought of from the time the 12 season of the show began. Other than that, I am quite satisfied with the way "TBBT" turned out after those 12 years.

    • Robert Polanco
      Robert Polanco Month ago +2

      @Rrishabb01 - You are certainly right! I kind of blame the writers for not having given what "Raj" wanted. How sad indeed.

    CBS... I’m disappointed... you must be so careful when presenting data. The bar graph at 1:17 displaying the comparative viewing figures for TBBT and GOT is misleading I’m afraid. Scaled to show a bar just half the height of the other it makes a mockery of the mere 100k additional viewers for TBBT. This represents a 0.8 percent increase on GOT and isn’t representative. Annotating the Axis doesn’t let you off the hook either.
