Law and Order original - I was 10 when it first came on.
Simpsons - I was 6 when it first appeared on Tracey Ulmann, 9 when premiered on its own.
SNL - older than me
Jeopardy with Trebek/Wheel of Fortune with Sajak - I was 4 and 3 when those started, respectively.
Meet the Press - I was negative 33.

All the stupid cop shows. I think its time for a paradigm shift.

The man says, "Well, I'm a physicist and Quantum Mechanics teaches us that it is possible for the matter above this stool to spontaneously turn into a beautiful woman who might accept my offer and fall in love with me."

The owner says, "Well there are a lot of single beautiful women who come in here every day. Why don't you just buy one of them an ice cream and they might fall in love with you?"

And the physicist says, "Yeah, but what are the odds of that happening!"


You're right -- I hear hot babes telling predictable quantum mechanics jokes like that on practically every television show practically every hour of practically every day.

Lol, sorry but The Big Bang Theory is the only sitcom I watch. I just started watching so perhaps I'll get tired of it eventually, but it's darn funny so far.

You mean the procedural dramas? I'm probably the only person in North America who gets bored watching CSI and NCIS. The only show that I watch now is Bones. I'm also surprised that Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory are popular and are still on. I think that if those two shows were aired during the times we had Frasier, Friends and Seinfeld, they wouldn't stand a chance. Sitcoms today suck so much.
