How i Met your mother is better than the big bang theory
Debate Rounds (5)
"How I Met your mother may not consistently be as funny as the Big Bang theory "
Heres a tip, never start out your arguments by immediately conceding a massive portion of your side.....
"The How I Met Your Mother storyline is so much better than the Big Bang theory."
On planet Bullsh*t that might be true but here on Earth it most certainly isnt....
The show is literally called: How I met your mother, its been going on for 8 f***ing seasons and we are JUST NOW meeting the mother, thats not good storyline thats stalling for time! 9 seasons ago the US was still invading Iraq, thats how long its taken for HIMYM to come full circle..... A good storyline most certainly does not take 8 seasons to describe an event that most people can sum up in about 4 minutes if they explained their story of how they met their mother in real life.
"Besides the simple plot of the nerds and the girls there is no ongoing story or a thing that ends an episode that will make you come back next week dying to know what will happen."
And thats just like real life, there isnt one grand adventure with a cliffhanger at the end of every episode to get people to stay tuned. instead its day to day general nonsense consisting of all kinds of different situations people find themselves in and all that as they progress through young adulthood.
Evidence that Big Bang Theory > How I Met Your Mother
1) Nominated for just as many Emmy's but been on the air much shorter then HIMYM
The Big Bang Theory in 6 seasons was nominated for 24 Emmy's and won 5 of them
How I met your mother in 9 seasons was nominated for 24 Emmy's and won 7 of them
So statistically, BBt has been nominated for the same number of Emmy's in significantly less amount of time
HIMYM average views per episode by season:
1 - 9.5 million
2 - 9 million
3 - 8 million
4 - 9.5 million
5 - 8.5 million
6 - 8 million
7 - 9.5 million
8 - 9 million
BBT average views per episode by season
1 - 8 million
2 - 10 million
3 - 14 million
4 - 13 million
5 - 16 million
6 - 18.5 million
Not only does Big Bang Theory consistently gather far more viewers then HIMYM brings in, but BBT literally gets twice as many viewers per episode in the current season! BBT has more then doubled their TV audience size over their span while HIMYM has failed to make any progress or growth despite 8 years of trying and counting.
"I am fully aware that TBBT has more consistent viewers but I do not care about that."
Well tough sh**. The number of viewers each show pulls in per episode is completely relevant as evidence for which show is better, since better shows get more viewers.
"How are they stalling if from the start of the show that is what it has been about? "
Because even though they claim thats what the show is about, its actually just the daily misadventures of the whole gang from one random event to another, which is EXACTLY how the Big Bang Theory is too.
"The last episode, or episode were we meet the mother will be extremely entertaining because that is what we have been waiting for, for 9 years"
By 'we' you mean those who still tune in to the show, which is half of that of what TBBT gets.
"what about Penny and Leonard, it is just not that intriguing."
Not according to the 18 million people who watch every episode now, which is twice as many people that tune in to HIMYM
"That is what is great about HIMYM, it is serious and funny"
If thats whats great about it then why do they have half the viewership of TBBT then?
"MEETING THE MOTHER WHICH IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR, FOR 9 YEARS."
But guess what, a lot of people chose to not wait that long and instead chose to follow funnier and better shows, like TBBT
"I already posted my argument. My point is that I don't care what the ratings say I think it is better."
And my point is that youre dead wrong on that.
"People shouldn't vote just because of the argument they should vote for which show they think is better."
........ You dont know the difference between a 'debate' and a 'poll' do you?
"If all these arguements were voted on just by who tells what is thought by more people there would be nothing to debate."
Exactly, its not a debate that more people like The Big Bang Theory than How I Met Your Mother....
"Why would people vote for Tbbt if they like how I met your mother better?"
BECAUSE THIS ISNT A POLL
"The arguments posted should be explaining why you think what you think."
BBT is a better show because twice as many people watch it than How I Met Your Mother, which indicates that The Big Bang Theory is a much better show than How I Met Your Mother, and also because BBT is more critically acclaimed than How I Met Your Mother
(Extend all arguments about BBT has twice the viewership of HIMYM and is more critically acclaimed)
