On a Very Special Night at the Museum...
Jim Henson must be rolling over in his grave. The new Muppet Show is basically "30 Rock" with a muppet cast. Yecch.
There are no more new TV show ideas.
Hot in Cleveland is Golden Girls.
Big Bang is The Young Ones (It also reminds me of a U.S. show I can't think of)

/Hot in Cleveland/ is Golden Girls.
Big Bang is The Young Ones (It also reminds me of a U.S. show I
can't think of)
Big Bang leans *very* heavily on That 70s Show.
Fez = Rajish
Eric = Leonard
Donna = Penny
The only 'puzzle' is which 70s character corresponds to Sheldon.
Hyde (??) = Sheldon
Jackie = Amy Farrah Fowler
Big Bang has "stolen" character quirks and even episode plots.
And, most important, Big Bang is funnier. But then, I'm prejudiced...
When the creators of "The Young Ones" were asked why was there only 12 episodes (two seasons UK tv) they said because when a show lasts too long the jokes are repeated and it becomes boring. I think Big Bang is like ever other show
2½ men it was the same over sexed jokes from Sheen's character and the oh so innocent from the boy.
Big Bang same jokes every show... how how rude will Sheldon be THIS episode... ohhhh! how whimsical!
2½ men it was the same over sexed jokes from Sheen's character and
Charlie Sheen is one of those actors who can only play one character.
(The worst of the worst is, of course, Tom Cruise, who can only play Tom Cruise ... badly.)
By the way, Angus Jones, who played the "kid" on Two and a Half Men, voluntarily walked away from the show (and a $300,000 per episode paycheck) because his own morality began to exceed that of the show and he just couldn't do it anymore.
Sheldon can't related to average people! Oh those jokes are STILL funny
This is why I don't watch television.
Or... maybe you mean Betty Faux?
I thought Betty White announced an exit from Hollywood.
For those of you who might pine to see MST-3000, you can find a Kickstarter page for it here:

Everyone give megabucks to this KS campaign.
It's already reached its $2M goal for production of a three-episode run, but with more funding it could be up to 12.
The kickstarter was a big success. They totally blew away every fundraising goal and then some, raising more than six million dollars. There will be 14 new episodes and also a Christmas special. Not only does this mean we get the new season, but it also sends a message to the television executives they're courting, telling them that there really is demand to keep this great show going.
Agreed, "We've got movie sign!".
They have a fairly good web interface but, even better, they have a ROKU app.
It's completely free if all you want to do is watch in real-time. If you want to record, you have to pay for their "cloud"-based "DVR" service which works well. AND... it can be used on any three different ROKU devices, anywhere on the internet, simultaneously.
In my ever humble (and usually right) opinion THIS is the wave of the future in TV watching/recording. It is also the beginning of the well-deserved demise of cable and satellite providers, all of which suck the big one.
or to get channels you might want to watch: $19.00 after 3 months $29.00 / month) But yea "free" for seven channels.
Regardless of the distribution method, I still want to get to a point where we can just subscribe to the channels we want instead of buying them as "packages."
I hate spending $6 every month on ESPN (that's what they charge providers) when I don't watch sportsball on television, ever.
My wife watches the Hallmark Channel. I keep telling her she's probably the only person under 70 in their audience.
Well, if she complains about the captioning on Hallmark, I know a little about what goes on with it, heh.
The latest news is that "Al Jazeera America" is shutting down. The network will cease operations on April 30.
But, if you want to keep receiving anti-Western jihadi propaganda, there's always the White House Twitter feed.
