Saturday Night Live gives Fort Collins an intro shout-out, The Big Bang Theory plugs Coors

In today's edition of Colorado references on network TV shows, we have two prominent entries -- one from the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, a show hilarious enough to be surviving a switch from Mondays to Thursday, and Saturday Night Live, whose writers presumably grew so accustomed to mentioning Fort Collins during the heyday of the Balloon Boy that they're keeping it up in the new season.
