Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Fall 2012

This week the first round of new episodes made their way to the air. I watched The Big Bang Theory, Guys with Kids and Last Man Standing, the only shows haven’t been eliminated. I enjoyed them for different reasons. The Big Bang Theory felt like the good old show again. I missed the very first scene though, so I feel like I might have missed the better Leonard stuff. Guys With Kids was fun to see the flashback versions of the characters. Last Man Standing wasn’t quite as good as usual. That’s more or less that order I would put them in.

That said, I think I will end my network sitcom power rankings since a full half season is a pretty good indicator of what I thought of these shows. Keep on reading for the final results (not counting this week’s episodes):

Network Sitcom Power Rankings – Week of December 17, 2012

This week was a relief, just a few excellent new episodes to watch.

#1 Apartment 23 – Season 2 Episode 7 – I still love this show. I won’t even mention my favorite parts because it was all awesome. Okay, I’ll mention tongue doors. But that’s it. Go watch it!

#2 Happy Endings – Season 3 Episode 5 – I really enjoyed this episode and I want some egg nog. Yet, I forgot to get egg nog the three times I went to the grocery store since watching it. Damn it! “Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park, Newman gets killed real bad!” Best alternate lyrics to jingle bells ever.

#3 How I Met Your Mother – Season 8 Episode 11 and 12 – Wow, these two episodes have made the rest of this season worth it. In episode 11 we had the classic silliness with Barney being jinxed the entire episode, which led into the set up for episode 12 which turned around a lot of the stuff that was just annoying me lately. Unfortunately, I do have to eliminate one show this week and I can’t eliminate 1600 Penn since there has only been one episode. I will keep watching though, especially if they keep up the same quality as these two episodes.

#4 1600 Penn – Season 1 Episode 1 – This show has some promise. I don’t think it’s as good as the canceled Animal Practice. I’ll give it a chance though. It’s cool to see Bill Pullman as president again.

And here are the running totals:

Apartment 23 – 9 – 1.29

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…
