Happy to be back in The Toronto Star today with a full page feature on The Big Bang Theory. Canada’s most-watched TV show for a decade and the top comedy in the U.S. is down to its final five episodes, with No. 273 — “The Laureate Accumulation” airing Thursday night at 8 p.m. on CBS
Wednesday was one of those days that make shuttle bus drivers weep. Our driver, Dan, was tasked with steering a massive, 60-passenger bus full of Television Critics Association members through five stops spread throughout the greater Los Angeles area, all on a tight schedule.

The usual “death march with cocktails” was more “with Sominex” this January as overall energy levels seemed down among participants not starring in a re-boot of Roseanne.
If both Sheldon and Leonard left The Big Bang Theory would you still watch? Consider then how Two and a Half Men continued to be a giant profit centre for Warner Bros.

BURBANK, Calif.–Thursday night, critics took a trip over to Mr. Lorre’s neighbourhood. That would be on the Warner Bros. Studio lot, where sitcom King Chuck Lorre produces four CBS sitcoms: The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly and Mom. The sitcoms make, like, a bazillion dollars for the studio as
