I like BBT also. While I wouldn't put it on Frasier levels of smart comedy, I think it it is above average for the required intellect of the viewers to get all the jokes.
All the BBT fans I know are college educated. The ones who love Duck Dynasty and Swamp People...different story.
Haivng said that, I wouldn't mind if Amy weren't part of it. She's rarely good for anything but a shock joke. I guess the writer's felt all the characters needed a female counterpart. But Sheldon's female was Leonard.
BTW, that episode is hilarious. My favorite one is when Penny gives Sheldon Leonard Nimoy's autographed napkin and Sheldon freaks out.
