With 1st & 3rd in the Best actress, and 2nd & 3rd in the Best actor categories for comedies, it comes as no surprise that The Big Bang Theory pulled out Best Comedy honours. The comedy about a group of nerds & the women in their lives has appealed on a massive scale. Whether its because of Sheldon's often too complex ideologies of simple things, Leonard's continual effort to bed a woman far out of his league, Raj's complete inability to even talk to the opposite sex, or Howard's complicated mother issues, the guys of the show always manage to garner laughs. But what has become far more prominent in the past year or so is the inclusion of the female cast into this. With Penny as the lead female, and the object of Leonard's desires, she was generally seen as the "only" main female character on the show, however, this past year or so has watched Bernadette & more recently Amy become just as important to the stories & laughs.
"The Big Bang Theory" opened a strong lead in voting & coasted to an easy victory with over a 200 vote cushion over another CBS sitcom, runner up "How I Met Your Mother". The 3rd place spot was a fight that bounced back & forth several times, but eventually the NBC hit "Community" narrowly edged out "Glee" for the honours, "Psych" rounded out the finalists in 5th..
This category was the only category The Big Bang Theory didnt win in the comedy genre.
Final vote results
The Big Bang Theory 810
How I Met Your Mother 584
