Summing it up. Repeats of all The Big Bang Theory airings, Two and a Half Men, 2 Broke Girls, were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and new airings of The Goodwin Games, Family Tools).
