    I wonder if that is just a way to ensure that all the writers on the show get as much money as possible during the final seasons?

    Can that be right? Isn't it closer to 20 minutes at least?

    Usually it's 22 minutes but when we were watching last week's ep on the PVR last night we both noticed that the show seems shorter than other 1/2 hour shows. Don't know if that's the case or not but it sure does seem that way.

    After the first set of commercials, the second set go for at least 3 minutes.

    The actual running time varies from as low as 19 to 20-21 mins (ie, just the content itself, but including the short title sequence).

    Ok. The last few episodes I thought were pretty good. Am I just being lulled into mediocre taste or does anyone agree?

    I agree the last couple have been better, but that's not really a compliment. I watch out of habit, but for a few years this is a show on autopilot...except for maybe Parsons, they must all know that the party is over once this string ends so they are just phoning it in and sleeping like babies on piles of cash.

    I took a couple years off but have come back to see a few episodes this year. To my surprise the show has gotten better than where it was in the slump.

    Parsons really doesn't need the show anymore, he's become a regular on Broadway (next year he'll star in a much anticipated revival of "Boys In The Band") where he always garners excellent reviews. Helberg does movies pretty regularly to good notices and Nayyar has done off-Broadway.

    Last night’s episode wasn’t horrible.

    Wish they would lose the annoying laugh track.

    It's hard to watch it these days. They have a few laughs, but wow is it tired.

    I don’t understand why it’s hard to watch. It’s a light silly comedy, it’s lot like they’re trying to remake Citizen Kane. I still enjoy it.

    I said that that it's hard (for me) to watch it these days.

    As someone who watched the show for years, I know what is (a light silly comedy) and not (Citizen Kane).

    But my point, having watched it for many years, is that it is not what it once was and that happens to tv shows, especially sitcoms. This is normal. Sadly it's also normal that networks don't often pull the plug before the quality drops.
     
  16. Yet nobody seems to mention "Modern Family" - which reportedly will end in Spring 2019.
