Geeks don’t just exist in the real world. They’re also on television.
In fact, thanks to cable TV shows, these so-called nerds have become very popular these days. Unlike in the past when they were looked down, geeks shown on TV today have a more positive image especially in the area of finding solutions (including the use of technology) to problems. And take note, they have become the popular character while the good looking guys play only supporting roles.
A popular geek character on television is Sheldon of The Big Bang Theory. Since 2008, this guy has gained a lot of fans owing to his unique personality and that includes his humor. Based on votes on the show’s official website, Sheldon is the most popular character in the show.
But geeks on television these days go beyond just the characters. There’s also a cable TV network, channel, show and a TV movie.
