Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Week of November 26, 2012

I was pretty late finishing watching everything from this week so I forget a lot of details, so here’s just the rankings without explanations…

#1 Parks and Recreation – Season 5 Episode 8

#2 Go On – Season 1 Episode 10

#3 Suburgatory – Season 2 Episode 6

#4 Ben and Kate – Season 1 Episode 9

#5 The Office – Season 9 Episode 8

#6 The Mindy Project – Season 1 Episode 7

#7 New Girl – Season 2 Episode 9

#8 Modern Family – Season 4 Episode 9

#9 Last Man Standing – Season 2 Episode 5

#10 Up All Night – Season 2 Episode 8

#11 Big Bang Theory – Season 6 Episode 9

#12 How I Met Your Mother – Season 8 Episode 8

#13 Raising Hope – Season 3 Episode 8 – Eliminated. Have to eliminate a show each week even on light weeks like this one. A  handful of shows that have a lower average score didn’t air this week, but rest assured that those will be picked off soon as well. I’ll continue watching it though.

Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Week of November 19, 2012

Thanksgiving week! Heavy on the turkey, light on the sitcoms. Pretty much every new episode was about Thanksgiving this week which got old just as fast as the Halloween episodes. Anyway, a quick rundown this week since I got to writing this a lot later than usual, so I don’t remember a lot of details.

Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Week of November 12, 2012

I didn’t really see this coming, a week when every current sitcom has a new episode. Good thing I eliminated a couple of shows, or I might have blacked out from trying to remember everything. That’s probably still a possibility, so I’ll keep my commentary short like last week just to avoid injuries. Whitney returns (at the expense of Animal Practice, sigh…) and Partners has been canceled. I’ve decided to eliminate another show since 22 in a single week is way too many. Alright, off to the races…

Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Week of November 5, 2012

A couple of shows were missing this week due to the election and whatnot, and I’m sad to say that Animal Practice is no more. I am extremely tired as I write this, so minimal explanation since I can’t remember specifics very well.

I watched the three most recent episodes of Two and a Half Men today and enjoyed them much more than the last couple of episodes before I eliminated it from my rankings. I won’t be adding it back to my rankings but thought it was worth mentioning.

Onward!
