THE BIG BANG THEORY and MODERN FAMILY continue to be ratings juggernauts.  2 BROKE GIRLS?  Missing?  Was it not on last week?  I did notice that my brain didn’t feel like it had been abused on Monday night so it’s certainly possible.

The ratings for the World Series are very disappointing for FOX as well.  They were beat by two sitcoms.  That normally doesn’t happen for a championship series, well except for the WNBA and the NHL.
