That will never happen. They'd have to pay for two editing jobs instead of one. Ultimately it's all about the money, as always.Frantic Canadian said:Personally I'd much rather have the longer shows be edited down for syndication. I mean with everything being released to DVD, and shows popping up online minutes after they've aired, you don't really miss out anymore.

I'm fully prepared to admit that I may be just slightly broken, but I just thought it was worth asking the question once.
Frantic Canadian said:I don't think there's really a formula for enjoying any tv show, you either like it or you don't. The Big Bang Theory was funnier in its earlier seasons when it was just the four guys and Penny, with the occasional appearance of Stuart, but I think the show has kinda gone downhill a bit with Bernadette and Amy being made regulars. It's like they've turned the show into Friends almost. Don't get me wrong, I loved Friends and I still love The Big Bang Theory, but it's not as funny as it used to be. It used to be geek comedy and now it's mainly relationship comedy.
