During preseason football, we found out that only one thing approaches Americans' passion for football: their passion for The Big Bang Theory.
I'm not sure what draws people like my parents and ... well ... my parents to The Big Bang Theory, because so far as I can tell, it's just the same joke about nerds adapting awkwardly to social situations 4,000 times per episode, but, people sure do love it!
Thus, there was intense disappointment when the Rays and Rangers needed a one-game playoff Monday night, suddenly bumping three hours of Big Bang Theory reruns from TBS's regularly scheduled programming.
h/t to Lana for pointing this phenomenon out:

I'm pissed, just turned to TBS expecting to see the hilarious Big Bang Theory, and it's not on... they have some baseball game on instead— Steve (@StephenRoman1) October 1, 2013
Dammit TBS! I want Big Bang Theory not baseball. Screw baseball. At least, if it isn't the phillies. I'd be less made if it were their game.— Norah Devine (@NorahxElaine) October 1, 2013

The fact that my three hours of Big Bang Theory on TBS every night is no longer until baseball is finished sucks.— Kayla (@hermayonnaise) September 30, 2013
TBS is showing baseball over Big Bang Theory. I'm pretty sure America would vote for a reversal.— Lauren Whisenant (@LRwhisenant) October 1, 2013
