It's because all those smart people are made to seem really stupid. Solving practical problems isn't their forte. All they have is book-smarts, which doesn't count for much in the real world.
It's more than that.  The show itself is basically scorn for nerds and nerd culture thinly disguised as comedy.  Its comedy is just "smart talk" slotted in at inappropriate situations.  Be more normal and less nerdy, dammit!

Stale ... more than 10 seasons.  And no, the Normie majority wouldn't watch a show with genuine nerds, silly.

Ah, a room mate who would put up with your version of Sheldon? ;-)  Odd Couple much?
I'd never live with anyone who'd have me for a roommate.

Pretty much why I don't watch BBT -- it's still laughing at the smart people for the social offense of being smart, rather than slipping in a teeny bit of information so viewers can laugh with them instead.

Also, most of the conversations they have are ones that I have (or have had) with my friends, I don't need to see them on TV.

And Sheldon is just fucking annoying. When I hear him talk, I just want to hit him with a cast iron skillet until he stops.

I'm not surprised you got the reference. Groucho had some of the best lines ever spoken on camera!

Yeah, the fact that this forum would have me as a member doesn't speak very well for it...

You underestimate yourself.  I have only seen you despair once.  Otherwise you have a winning wry humor.

We need to get on the inventive track again.  Let's see some more balanced cooperative space travel tech from many nations.
That will produce many agendas.
