The Big Bang Theory (2007– )
Three weeks into its run, drama Swat gets the full season. This comes after the drama has given some stability to Thursday's troubled 10 p.m. hour. There, with the network's strongest comedies airing before it, Swat has averaged 10.4 million viewers and a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 with time-shifting.
Swat joins fellow drama Seal Team and The Big Bang Theory spinoff Young Sheldon in getting the full-season tap. It's not the only newcomer getting new episodes. Comedy 9Jkl is getting three...
In Et’s exclusive sneak peek from Thursday’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) unintentionally crashes Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) innocent spat about a documentary they watched the night before. (Spoiler: Penny wasn’t a fan!)
When Leonard makes the same joke about the doc, Penny is not amused. “I already pretended to laugh at that joke once, do I have to do it again?” she bemoans, but eventually caters to Leonard’s wishes.

Seconds later, Sheldon interrupts their lovers’ quarrel and asks Leonard to drive him to work, but gets mysteriously coy when he’s asked why he can’t make it to a Tesla coil exhibition with the crew. “I couldn’t tell you even if I wanted to,” Sheldon says.
The Big Bang Theory injects some welcome fresh blood in its latest season 11 episode. Spoilers...

11.7 The Geology Methodology
Bert’s back! I like Bert, he was one of the better additions of last season, and he really does bring a different energy to the show. That’s as true as ever here, as his kind innocence rubs up against Sheldon’s narcissism and hostility towards ‘lesser’ sciences.
The trouble starts when Bert asks Sheldon for help on a project that would interest the both of them. Sheldon refuses at first because no matter how interesting it is, ‘it’s still geology’, but eventually he decides to participate in secret.
However, while big internet gambling firms may not be directly impacting on the business of television production (apart from the fact that they take eyeballs away from the major networks, pay TV, and legal streaming sites like Netflix), it is rather their advertising strategies that are indirectly, yet most significantly, impacting on the world of TV.
This is because large, multi-national online betting companies have taken to paying for pop-up advertising on popular illegal streaming sites, which has significantly contributed to their rapid and widespread proliferation. Very few enterprises can say no when big gambling comes calling, and so internet betting’s presence in the murky
This time around, we’ve got a high tolerance for crazy on Jane the Virgin, a genuinely crazy source of inspiration on Project Runway and a reference to Hell’s most notorious occupant on Lucifer.
Also included in this week’s round-up: double doses of The Big Bang Theory, The Flash and NCIS: Los Angeles, and a callback to Katherine Heigl’s time on Grey’s Anatomy.

Annie Potts inhabits the mythical Mee Maw of Sheldon’s childhood with style. Introduced as a fun loving, free spirited older woman this grandmother is not to be messed with. Babysitting in the loosest sense while Sheldon, George and Missy are let off the chain to run wild. This Mee Maw is the stuff of legend and everything grandparents should be. Non-judgemental, unflinchingly supportive with a hint of benevolent mischief thrown in for good measure. That is what Potts manages to encapsulate in this compact episode of Sheldon’s Wonder Years.
As noted last week Young Sheldon does not go down the conventional route of conflict resolution, but rather peppers each show with life lessons. Armitage, Zoe Perry and Lance Barber still hold centre stage but the small town nostalgia purposely colours every moment. There are callbacks to Big Bang threads

In “Poker, Faith and Eggs,” the Designing Women alum made her series regular debut as Sheldon’s beloved grandmother — but the real story here involved George Sr., who as well established on The Big Bang Theory isn’t long for this world. His mortality cast a shadow over the entire episode, and for good reason: Mary escorted him to the emergency room after he began complaining of chest pain, and what is
