The Big Bang Theory is Unfashionable
I've never actually watched it, mind you.
But I've never heard a good word about it from anyone who seems the least bit sophisticated.
And the idea of a TV comedy that sounds like the premise is exploitation of autism spectrum people pisses me off.

There is a Netflix comedy series called "Atypical", though, about an AS kid and his family that is sympathetic and gets a lot right.

TBBT is just the latest episode of Cheers/Friends type franchise.

TBBT has been so popular, and so profitable, it has spawned a show about the main character, when he was a child.  I am not kidding.

It's a shit show (which is why it's popular). Basically, if you made a show about what average/dumb people think smart people are like, and add a laugh track, you get TBBT. I've watched parts of several episodes because 1) I could never sit through an entire one; and 2) several of my less smart friends kept telling me I'd love it.

I live in a predominantly rural conservative area. Was at the sports bar few years ago for a game. TBBT commercial came on and from the cousin-wife of the redneck couple next to me I heard (in thick southern accent ) "I don't git that show", to which her Nascar fan husband replied,"it's got that boy from Roseanne".

except it's worth it to watch Cheers, and sometimes Friends.

Cheer is good.  Friends is not.
