The Big Bang Theory became so popular despite being hated. And the criticism was mainly due to its comedic style, especially in its first seasons..

Something that has become even bigger with services like Netflix.
Howard was criticized for it as well, most notably for making inappropriate comments to the women he was trying to date in the early seasons.
