A stark message from Chuck Lorre

ChucklorreJust noticed this while replaying this week’s installment of “The Big Bang Theory” on, yes, a DVR. Co-creator Chuck Lorre’s trademark end-credit vanity card has a stark, simple message this week that doesn’t take a quick-trigger finger on the pause button to read. Peel slowly and see…er, click here and see. (Sorry, Lorre’s always reminded me of a bit of Lou Reed.)

Sad that the strike is likely to exact a heavy toll on this charming new CBS comedy that deserves every bit of ratings momentum it has built up during the past eight weeks. (It’s multicamera and has a theme song — what’s not to like?) As “Big Bang” costar Jim Parsons’ Sheldon character observed in a recent seg: “What fresh hell is this?” –Cynthia Littleton
