Will BBT be the Last Great Sitcom?


Given the shift towards streaming and a much greater variety of choices for entertainment, I don't think there will be another iconic scripted sitcom in the vein of BBT, Friends, Cheers, or Seinfeld. Could maybe make a case for Modern Family, but I don't see anything else on the air currently, or on the horizon that shows promise.

I feel a little sad thinking about it.

Have no fear. I've been worrying since the 1970s. There will never be another TAXI. There will never be another SEINFELD. There will never be another OFFICE. There will never be another MODERN FAMILY. Something always comes along. Promise.

I was watching How I Met Your Mother while watching BBT. Only reason that changed was HIMYM ended before BBT did (not to mention also started sooner)

I remember when I thought "there will never be another "Life of Riley". Then "there'll never be another "Honeymooners". And "there'll never be another "Dick van Dyke Show". Just wait and see what happens.

Am reminded that the Great War was once called The War to End All Wars.
Later on we were forced to rename it World War I.

I'm surprised they never made a third one.

Don't write it off yet.
