Not bad for a few nerds.
Before I get to Thursday's recap, I'd like to note, "The Big Bang Theory" beat "American Idol" head-to-head from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the all-important 18-49 demographic.
The Leonard and Penny story arc certainly seems to be attracting viewers. And this time, it wasn't a dream.
Leonard tried out his theory of treating dating like a beta test, but their "bug reports" for each other obviously didn't help the relationship (they also argued over Penny's knowledge of the term "beta test").
A "Doctor Who" watching date didn't work out either (no Who-Con for you, Penny!), but the shooting range was more Penny's speed – until Leonard got shot.
So far, so good for "Lenny," but I think they have a long road ahead of them.
I was thoroughly entertained by Sheldon and Amy's flag podcast, and Raj's misadventures with his new girlfriend, Siri (and the fact that he froze up in front of the "real" Siri. (Also, loved Amy's constant defense of the – in her mind – flawless Penny.)
What were your favorite moments? Are you pulling for "Lenny" to work out? Share your view on iReport or comment below.
Meh. I have friends who can't believe I don't watch it. Give me old Doctor Who's and Monty Python's, any day.
n u say ur not a troll.

If you only watch with the volume down to jerk it too Kaley then how do you know Jim Parsons is funny? anyways, I love this show. I find it hilarious and it always makes me laugh. I'm hoping Leonard and Penny work out. I liked them together in season three.
Jim Parsons is funny, and Kaley is the most unbelievably smoking ass, balls out, full on 100% BEAUTIFUL girl i have ever seen! That's the best part of the show. I watch it with the volume turned off, just to gaze upon her flawless face. Thats it and thats all
Wish I had a hot alcoholic wh0re living across the hall from me, or do stepdaughters count?
Wow, I thought you were supposed to use this space to comment on the article. I'm just going to say I enjoy BBT as what it is - a fun sitcom. And I love the return of Lenny!
I'm not Richard Fore. Richard Fore is Richard Fore. Just so you fxxking as-sholes know!
Hey, brah! I am calm! I'm just kidding with the nerd. I guess MY humor is too high brow for y'all here too.
Hey Dick Fore.... take a deep breath and CALM DOWN. You'll feel better, I promise. I think the show is hilarious and I'm not book-smart at all. I don't think you have to be smart or a nerd to think its funny. Either you like it or you don't. Who really cares? Not everyone has to like it.
I'm the real Mr. Ed.
Because everyone knows you're not the real Mr. Ed u fxxking loser! Now did I get it right?
Notice how he can't answer the question? He don't know how to laugh... Like we are all laughing at him!
No, A WINNER IS YOU!
Calm down dude. I just have a differing opinon. You don't have to throw a tantrum about it.
I bet impersonating me makes you feel like a winner Richard. How cute.
I completely understand why Yea ... doesn't thing the show is funny, he simply doesn't GET the jokes. It's one of the few shows on TV that is laugh-out-loud funny. Cracks me up every week.
I think this show is hilarious and a laugh track is horrible idea. Let the work speak for itself... if you just don't get, you don't get it. But something must be working since it beat out American Idol. This show isn't for everyone... what show do you consider is funny Yea...?
HA! Butt-hurt looser has no comeback!
Yea... wow. Ok, first off, you're calling me a nerd when clearly you're the one who watches this unfunny show designed for nerds? Nice logic. Second off, you seem to know a lot about cartoons for someone who tries to insult someone else by suggesting they watch cartoons. At the end of the day, comedies with laugh tracks just aren't high brow. They just aren't. Know what the laugh track is there for? It's so you can recognize the jokes. This is something that is typically done when the jokes aren't funny. Live with it.
HAHAHAHA! Why U so mad? Nerds on the show are getting chicks and you're not! U Jelly?
Not I. You're the one typing in caps.
Oh yeah, he MAD!
Sorry Yea...., you are all alone on this one. This show is probably the funniest thing on TV these days.
I guess I am alone, as opposed to the whopping 4 people who have stated they like this show here :P.
...and you know what? I see your point. Even Spongebob is too high-brow for you. You seem more of an Ed, Edd and Eddie type.
I didn't say it was too high-brow for the fans, I said it was too high-brow for YOU. Wassamatter? Are you offended it isn't a realistic representation of (your) nerd life-style? After all, the nerds on THAT show are all getting girlfriends. You? Not so much...
Yea, I bet this show's fans would love to think that this show is "high-brow" but it's the farthest thing from it. It's just a show about "nerdy" guys who straight ARE NOT funny.
"Yea, I bet this show's fans would love to think that this show is "high-brow" but it's the farthest thing from it. It's just a show about "nerdy" guys who straight ARE NOT funny."
@Yea – That is the entire premise of the show; nerdy guys who aren't funny. And the fact that you don't get that it's funny, makes it too high brow.
Too high-brow for you, huh? Maybe Spongebob is more your speed?
This is one of those shows that would be hard to identify as a comedy without the laugh track. Probably the least funny network comedy I've ever seen.
