Nerds rule everywhere you look on TV this fall, with the exception of this wedgie-worthy sitcom about what happens when clich├ęs collide. Two dorky physicist roomies (Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons) awkwardly befriend their new next-door neighbor, a chipper blonde waitress named Penny (Kaley Cuoco). Galecki's pining for her is supposed to evoke sweet memories of Friends' Ross and Rachel, but he lost me recently when the dorky duo broke into Penny's messy apartment one night to clean it up while she slept. That's creepy, not geeky.
