Wil Wheaton means record ratings

Wil WheatonRemember all those posts we did about former TV Squad writer Wil Wheaton appearing on The Big Bang Theory? Well, the ratings are in and it looks like that episode had a 15% increase in viewership in the sought-after 18-34 demo. While the article attributes the ratings boost to a Twitter campaign by Wheaton and executive producer Bill Prady, we here at TV Squad would like to think that our own promotion of the show contributed in some small way.

Speaking of which, wasn't the show great? Sure we already did a review but it was amazing seeing Wil's screen character win by using the one aspect of playing cards (and, for that matter, reality) that Sheldon can't grasp: the human factor. Sheldon would undoubtedly be great at Blackjack and lousy at Poker.

In case you missed it, here's the video of the actual card tournament between Wil and Sheldon. Perhaps this is, in fact, the "Mirror Universe" Wil Wheaton rather than the real Wil Wheaton. He has the facial hair to prove it.

I disagree about Sheldon being bad at poker. He has a great stoneface most of the time that doesn't show emotion.

Is it me just me, or are they giving Sheldon a lot more bazingas this season since the Emmy nod?
