        Why wait? I watched some of it with my grandparents as a tot, although I can’t say whether it would hold up after all these years.

    The screen grab of the snoozing seniors is actually from season 10’s “The Old Man and the C Student,” not “Sideshow Bob Roberts.”

    I always found Grampa’s love of Matlock hilarious, same with Patty and Selma and MacGyver. But once these shows went off the air they weren’t mentioned much. BTW, do the elderly have any first run TV shows for them anymore? Or do they just watch reruns of Matlock, Murder She Wrote, and Diagnosis Murder?

      Pretty much every series currently airing on CBS is beloved by old people. That’s why NCIS and The Big Bang Theory have stuck around so long – the former provides them with the reassuring fantasy of gray-haired men with guns keeping America safe from brown people, and the latter gives them an excuse to point and laugh at those dumb Millennials who think they’re so gosh-darn smart.

        *sigh* “The Big Bang Theory” is now a long-running TV show. It premiered seven years after “The Simpsons” should have ended. *sigh*

          I’ll never understand how TBBT became so popular. It’s just another dumb sitcom with forced nerd humor. It was recommended to me because of said nerd humor, but I didn’t last past a few episodes.

    The way Grandpa screams “MAAAATLOOOOOCK!” with the fervor of a man charging into war has always been one of my favorite things from this episode.
