THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Domestic Fronts

big bang theory

There are new developments on the domestic front on tonight’s new episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY.

What could be bothering Penny? It seems she thinks the magic has petered out of their marriage. Leonard doesn’t bring her flowers anymore, he no longer wears pants in the house, and he doesn’t seem to show much interest in her concerns. That does it! Penny invites Amy to join her in a spa weekend instead of Leonard, leaving him with Sheldon, who has developed a sudden curiosity in other people’s lives.

Across town, the Wolowitzes have a squeaky floorboard in the baby’s room and Raj stops by to help Howard fix it. Now, what could go wrong when two science geeks try to tackle a domestic do-it-yourself job?

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Back From the Holidays

bbt

New episodes of our favorite shows are finally back. That includes THE BIG BANG THEORY, where we find the old gang getting back together after the holidays.

Sheldon and Amy return from a trip to Texas, where they report a good time was not had by all — maybe by no one. And just in time for Sheldon to find Leonard and Penny clearing away their holiday decorations a whole week after Christmas. For shame!

Meanwhile, Howard and Bernadette arrive a bit late because life with a new baby is much more complicated than even life with a group of immature nerds. Raj and Stuart aren’t far behind.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: And Baby Makes Nine?

bbt

One story arc reaches its zenith tonight on THE BIG BANG THEORY, while another one stutters along.

It appears the big night finally arrives for the Wolowitzes. Tonight Howard and Bernadette gather the nerd squad at the hospital to welcome their new baby. While waiting for Howard and Bernadette’s big event, the supportive gang examines how much they’ve grown over the years — all except Raj and Stuart, who feel left in the wake by everyone else’s successes. Of course, last week they did get to battle it out over which was more supportive during Bernadette’s pregnancy. Well, it’s something.

It’s also Amy’s birthday, and Sheldon and Amy celebrate as only Sheldon and Amy can. A couple of weeks ago, Sheldon tried to spring a surprise brunch on Amy that didn’t go so well. What magic could he be planning tonight?

Enjoy the last new episode before the holidays. Watch the clips below and tun in to THE BIG BANG THEORY tonight (December 15) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Divvying Up the Goodies

bbt

Will Sheldon and Amy’s cohabitation on THE BIG BANG THEORY be permanent? This week’s episode makes it appear so.

A couple of weeks ago, Sheldon and Amy mused about moving out of Penny’s apartment and finding a place of their own. And then after a gene splicing experiment went well, Sheldon tried to seduce Amy into making a baby. This week, we find Sheldon and Leonard divvying up their shared belongings — but not without disagreements.

We’ve also watched Howard and Bernadette approach their pending expectancy during this season, sometimes with excitement, but also with trepidation. Throughout it, Raj has been there to lend his support to Bernadette, who originally was feeling iffy about becoming a mom. This week, Raj has some competition as best supporting friend as Stuart vies for the role during Bernadette’s final weeks of pregnancy. Will this crank up Bernadette’s crankiness?

Much more craziness ensues in America’s favorite geekland comedy. See our preview clip below and watch this new episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY tonight (December 1) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: The Bert and Hawking Effect

bbt

THE BIG BANG THEORY revives some past issues after stirring up all the funniness of Howard and Bernadette’s pregnancy and Sheldon and Amy’s cohabitation.

A couple of weeks ago, we saw Bert the geologist throw a party, with Penny and Amy as his only guests. Then Sheldon surprised Amy with an impromptu brunch featuring Bert as one of the surprise guests. This week, Bert gets to surprise Sheldon when he wins the MacArthur Genius fellowship, throwing Sheldon into a fit of jealousy. Nothing gets Sheldon’s goat like someone else being recognized for being brilliant!

Stephen Hawking has made a few guest appearances on THE BIG BANG THEORY, both live and by voice. This week, the world-renown cosmologist returns once again as himself when Howard runs into an old remote-controlled action figure of Hawking that he once invented. Must be something to this inventing thing for Howard.

And who knows what other nuttiness will surface in this week! Will Raj still be uncomfortable about dating the cleaning lady as he was last week?

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Sheldon and Amy’s Little Caper

bbt

Looks like maybe Sheldon and Amy’s relationship is about to move even further forward on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Amy lied to Sheldon about her water-damaged apartment being repaired and ready to move back into, because she didn’t want to stop living with him. At first he was put off by the lie, but then he realized he liked living with her, too, and they even fantasized about moving out of Penny’s apartment and finding some place of their own. This week, the two science nerds try an experiment combining their genes and when it’s successful, Sheldon moves into warp drive to convince Amy to procreate with him.

Raj has been more in the background recently, helping Howard and Bernadette deal with their pending expectancy, but this week he has to try to explain the  woman he’s dating and what she does for a living.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Something Old Feels Like Something New

bbt

Something old feels like something new this week on THE BIG BANG THEORY. We’ve been focused on the Wolowitz pregnancy the past couple of weeks but this week we return to “Fun with Flags,” with Sheldon and Amy hosting an episode “on location.” New look, new feel, right?

Last week Howard felt the baby kick in the womb, which sent him scurrying to the baby store to buy furniture and toys for the new baby’s room — without Bernadette. Penny attended the Van Nuys Comic Con with Leonard, where fandom was as strange as you can imagine. And Sheldon threw a surprise brunch for Amy, inviting an eclectic group of visitors as a trial get-together that didn’t thrill invitee Stuart, who felt unappreciated as a test friend.

This week, in addition to the return of “Fun with Flags,” Amy has problems giving up her living arrangements with Sheldon, so she lies about the progress made in repairs to her damaged apartment. At the same time, Penny hasn’t been telling Leonard about secretly moving his collectibles into storage — not that he’s noticed. Word leaks out to the guys and despite the ladies doing their best to keep mum the word, there will be an accounting.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

bbt

Sheldon surprises Amy, Amy surprises Sheldon, Howard surprises Bernadette, and Penny surprises Leonard this week on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Sheldon and Amy ran into a rough spot in their cohabitation experimentation when Amy refused to follow Sheldon’s rigid bathroom rules. But Penny and Leonard served as counselors for the couple and Amy served as the grown up, compromises were reached, and all was smoothed out. Howard and Bernadette decided to take a vacation before the birth of their new baby changes their lives forever, but Bernadette’s continued morning sickness scuttled their plans so they decided to stay at home, unannounced to their friends. Next thing they knew Stuart arrived to enjoy the Wolowitz’s hot tub and Raj soon followed. It wasn’t much of a quiet home vacation with unexpected visitors.

This week we revisit the Wolowitz expectancy as Howard stresses out over the coming due date and makes an impulse purchase. Penny attends the Van Nuys Comic Con with Leonard where fans of her “Serial Ape-ist” performance emerge. And Sheldon and Amy throw a brunch in their cohabitation apartment – Sheldon style, inviting a strange assortment of guests.

See the preview video below and watch THE BIG BANG THEORY when it returns to Thursdays tonight (October 27) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Domestic Issues

bbt

Things have taken a turn to the domestic side lately on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Howard and Bernadette had a big to-do with Raj, who had found out before they did the gender of their baby. They decided they didn’t want to know before the birth, but in the last clip before the fade to black, Bernadette called Raj in the middle of the night unable to stand the suspense. Meanwhile, Amy’s apartment had been flooded and Leonard and Penny suggested that Amy and Sheldon try out life together in Penny’s apartment, giving Leonard and Penny some much desired Sheldon-free privacy in Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment. It started out alright, but Sheldon’s obsessions quickly became an issue.

This week, we see issues between Sheldon and Amy escalate and Leonard and Penny must separate the quarreling couple, Sheldon threatening to break off their relationship because Amy won’t observe the bathroom schedule. Back at the Wolowitz residence, Howard and Bernadette decide to stay home instead of taking a planned vacation only to receive unexpected guests — just as Howard is upstairs giving Bernadette a soothing foot massage.
