Countdown to Fall: THE BIG BANG THEORY

Think different is so 2005. Which is why our vote for the new season of THE BIG BANG THEORY is think bigger. Not only did CBS show big confidence in the little-series-that-could by renewing it for two seasons, expect big guest stars courtesy of THE DAILY SHOW’s Lewis Black (Who drops by the show’s second episode playing a Professor whose life is in shambles), and big romance when Leonard and Penny finally go where we have a feeling Sheldon has yet to go before (Teased executive producer Bill Prady to EW’s Michael Ausiello, “When they finally make it all the way, they have trouble finding their groove.”) Thankfully, one thing that won’t be getting bigger are the cast’s egos. With star Johnny Galecki remaining refreshingly humble when this TV Addict had the opportunity to interview him at CBS’s recent TCA party (“I can’t imagine the ego trip that you would have to accept to actually become accustom to 4500 screaming fans at Comic Con”), Simon Helberg continually uttering the phrase “surreal” when asked to describe his take on the show’s success, and Jim Parsons living up to his reputation as one of the nicest actors in Hollywood by offering up his take on his much-deserved Emmy nomination (“Flabbergasted, I don’t see how you couldn’t be surprised!?”) Clearly Parsons has yet to see his work on the show!

THE BIG BANG THEORY returns to CBS on Monday September 21st at 9:30PM

  • I’m predicting and hoping that THE BIG BANG THEORY will match or even surpass the ratings of 2.5 MEN. I want it to be the top rated sitcom next season

    But this along with THE MENTALIST will be even bigger this season, the reruns of both shows this summer were really excellent! Good sign of things to come

    I don’t add many comedies to my already-full pattern of viewing, but I can say without hesitation, Big Bang Theory is the funniest CBS comedy on Monday nights, and I became fully hooked this summer. Just when you think Sheldon can’t possibly get any funnier, he top himself. Kudos to the writers, but especially to Parsons for having to regurgitate dialogue that’s impossible to even comprehend.

    a series which somehow manages to touch on the injokes and arcane knowledge that the characters it portrays should refer to in their speech.

  • Schiely

    This cast are ingredients that can create exceptional hysteric laughter from the storyline – create about intelligent people who like comic books and Star Trekkie’s and where odd clothing or wear spidey underwear. An odd geek and beauty romance – its great – love it!
