My own feelings on the show notwithstanding, it's clear that CBS' The Big Bang Theory has made a big splash with fans. The sitcom won Favorite Network TV Comedy at the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards; edging out Glee, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, and Modern Family. Additionally, won Favorite Comedic TV Actress honors for her role on the show.

Personally I find The Big Bang Theory to be a weak, sometimes offensive, generalization of geek culture seemingly constructed by people who have never actually met a single real world geek; borrowing instead from the same exemplars that populated the Tri-Lambs house in Revenge of the Nerds.

Still, the people have spoken...that is, the people who watch The People's Choice Awards have spoken.

What are your thoughts on the series?
