T.V. has been around for decades now and one of the most popular kinds of shows is the classic t.v. comedy. Today, three top notch t.v. comedies are, “How I Met Your Mother,” “Still Standing,” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

However, Bill is not willing to lose his title so easily, and the two make it a competition. Their house becomes a disaster; and they allow their kids to do whatever they want. It is not until their oldest son, Brian, asks his mom if he can drive that they run into trouble. Judy agrees reluctantly, and the next time viewers see them, they are entering their house talking about the poor squirrel he killed. Judy gladly takes back the title of being “bad cop.”
Finally, “The Big Bang Theory” is a humorous show about two nerds, Leonard and Sheldon, who get a really pretty neighbor, Penny, in their apartment building. Leonard and Penny date for a while and then break up. Penny invites Sheldon to come to her spaghetti...
