I don't sit through/zap the commercials to see Chuck Lorre's wrinkled ass sit in a chair and read his "cards" aloud.

I hate it when actors become too big for the show. Just cancel it and start again with different actors who appreciate a decent pay check. When their heads become too big, can them too.eundem iniappi

Oh come on, they only make about $20 Million a season and that's not nearly enough to pay for there homes in Hollywood, Martha's Vinyard, Hawaii, Tuscany and there home on the ocean, a 300 foot luxury crusier. Not to mention all the staff to keep them in livable conditions. But let's not forget the cars too.

Oh what I could do with $20 Million a year, WOO FRIGGIN HOO.

Hay I'll do it for $5 MILL ;-)

I have a feeling they will talk themselves right out of the show. Can you say cancelled due to greed?
