Many are surprised by the success of show “The Big Bang Theory” and others are just happy. There are many reasons why people love this show. The show redefines the term popular. With over 18 million viewers and still counting, it is one of the most watched shows on American Television. The show was nominated multiple times for the best comedy series at the Emmys and it has lost to Modern Family consistently.
While many critics feel that the laugh-track comedy style is a little outdated, the viewers seem to think otherwise. The number of viewers have gone up consistently which makes it a block buster among fans not just in United States but across the globe.
The mainstream of the show is the geek culture. It has many references to Schrodinger’s cat, string theory and Star Trek. Since this is the age of geek, many are able to connect with big bang theory. It helps audiences to identify themselves among the geek world. Another reason for success is that they seem to be everywhere from cable to televisions and repeats are being telecast all the time. Many admit that they watch the repeats almost all the time.
No matter what the critics believe in, the show continues to rule. For those of you who do not like it, Bazinga!
