Cast of The Big Bang Theory, is there anything I don't love about you? These behind-the-scenes videos from our year in review photoshoot with Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar pretty much made my heart explode. Although, seriously, who hasn't seen the Susan Boyle video? For shame, Johnny Galecki! With these clips, I think BBT edges out How I Met Your Mother as my current favorite ensemble on TV. Who's your favorite collective cast right now, PopWatchers? More:Look back on the highs (and the lows!) of the year in entertainment, featuring our critics' top 10 lists, »

Hate to say "I told you so," but… Wait. No. I love to say "I told you so." And I did! I totally hinted at a future hook-up between Big Bang Theory brainiacs Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard's mother, Beverly (The Good Wife's Christine Baranski), and see? On Monday's episode, "The Maternal Congruence," it's happening. At least that's the conclusion I'm drawing from the (possibly misleading) exclusive image above. Oh, don't pretend you're as shocked as Penny (Kaley Cuoco) looks. You saw the sparks flying last time, too. Timing for the return of the thinking man's cougar couldn't be better, »

I can't say I'm a Sheldon/Penny 'shipper myself, so I'm not entirely sure whether last night's episode was cause to rejoice or not for those rather insistent Big Bang Theory fans who subscribe to the notion that the otherwise asexual quantum physicist should shack up with the rather sweet blonde Cheesecake Factory waitress who lives across the hall. True, Sheldon quite clearly, if accidentally, got to second base with Penny. And a drug-addled Penny did coyly joke at the end of the episode about Sheldon helping her to bed. But the vibe between them felt pretty much little sister »

Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Just want to say hi? You can send any/all of the above to email@example.com Question: Is Izzie really pregnant on Grey's Anatomy? —Elle Ausiello: I'll say this: ABC's promo gurus are very sneaky! While we're on the subject of Katherine Heigl, sources confirm to me exclusively that she's taking another leave of absence from Grey's — but this time her reasons are personal, not professional. Heigl will be going on a belated maternity leave to spend some Qt with new daughter Naleigh. As a result, Izzie »

Forget Team Edward vs. Team Jacob for a moment.
TV Guide Magazine recently asked a handful of actresses to weigh in on Team Vampire Diaries vs. Team True Blood. Which is their favorite vampire show and why? Find out now...
Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost/V): “All those vampires are hot. True Blood’s vampires are pretty hot, but at the same time, I love Nina (Dobrev, who plays Elena) from Vampire Diaries. I met her at Comicon and can’t think of a sweeter girl.”

Honestly, the reason why I've gone through the first season of The Big Bang Theory is because an old friend of mine (who studies for a Major in Atmospheric Science and a Minor in Environment) recommended it to me. With that said, I got to admit that the show is likable despite a few plot holes.
Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Hofstadter), an experimental physicist, and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), a theoretical physicist, are two Caltech prodigies in their twenties. Besides, they share the same apartment. One day, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an attractive blonde with showbiz ambition who works at a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, moves in the apartment across the hall from Leonard's and Sheldon's apartment. Unlike Sheldon, who seriously lacks social skills, Leonard manages to develop a friendship between Penny and him. However, Leonard has a crush on Penny.
Obviously, The Big Bang Theory doesn't reinvent the wheel of sitcoms. This »

In NFL football, when a team takes a scheduled week off from the season, it's called a bye week. I know this because my boyfriend, a diehard Denver Broncos fan, was yelling at the TV calmly explaining to me this past Sunday that the rather lackluster performance of his beloved, and heretofore undefeated, team against the Baltimore Ravens was due in large part to the fact the Broncos took five days off during their bye week, derailing their machine-like momentum and causing them to play like, well, I can't really reprint what he said next on a family website.

We all love Bond girls and we all love Jennifer Aniston. Sounds like a match made in heaven until one realizes that, whoa, Bond girls should be exotic, dangerous and reeking of sex. I don’t know about you, but Jennifer Aniston is a lot of things but smelling like sex is not one of them. She’s more of the “hot neighbor girl” kind of like Kaley Cuoco on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory.
Bond girl rumors spread almost as fast as villains for a third Batman and we have heard the same names over and over just like you. Angelina Jolie, Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto and even Salma Hayek, but the Jennifer Aniston rumor is a persistent one.
In March the former Friends star was asked by Elle magazine if she would have any interest in becoming a Bond girl in the next installment. The answer may »

From MTV.Com: At the previous three incarnations of the Spike TV Scream Awards, vampires were considered just another fanboy favorite, alongside such evergreens as zombies, killer robots, and busty sci-fi babes. But over the past 12 months, franchises like "Twilight" and "True Blood" have sunk their teeth into Hollywood, and Saturday night's taping of the fourth annual awards showed that there's no hate from the horror fans.
"'Scream' is in the name — how much cooler can you get?" marveled "The Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco, looking up and down a checkered black-and-white carpet that had scantily clad women on swings overhead and a unicorn frolicking with such stars as Christina Ricci, Keith Richards and Justin Long. "Vampires are hot! It's scary stuff; they love this whole sci-fi, futuristic thing. Vampires are hot, nerds are hot. The world is coming to an end."

A little over a month ago TVOvermind brought you news of Wil Wheaton guest starring on an upcoming episode of The Big Bang Theory, and now, thanks to some episode reshuffling, this coming Monday (Oct 19) will mark his appearance. CBS announced a few days ago that the previously scheduled episode, "The Cornhusker Vortex", would be reshuffled to a later date and this weeks episode would be "The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary" which guest stars Wheaton as himself. We've even got the pictures below, as well as a press release from CBS with the details (thanks for the headsup TVFanatic!)
"The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary" – While Sheldon settles a score with his nemesis, Wil Wheaton, Wolowitz begs Leonard to get Penny to set him up with one of her friends, on The Big Bang Theory, Monday, Oct. 19 (9:30-10:00 Pm, »

I love this show. I’ve loved it from the first episode. I’m not a scientist but I am a nerd and so every science fiction, comic book, nerd reference, in fact every piece of trivia tossed aside ’causes me to break out laughing and always has. But even as I type this I can’t help wonder if this show works for the non-nerds/scientists? I mean, does everything body get a thrill of excitement when the entire male cast of a series dresses up like The Flash? Do they even know who The Flash is? When a joke is dependent on an understanding of the DC multiverse is any but me and people like me, gonna be rolling in the aisle? More after the jump:
So I guess I’ll start there. If you’re a nerd and you haven’t been watching this show (and I »

One of my favorite things about The Big Bang Theory -- the thing, in fact, that got me officially hooked on the show in the first place -- is the way on occasion it casually breaks certain steadfast sitcom rules. Exhibit A: Sitcom characters are never supposed to laugh at a funny situation, even when the natural response for most human beings would be to break down in hysterics. But every so often, Penny will actually laugh at something Sheldon or Leonard has done that's genuinely funny, and not one of those forced sitcom-y laughs, either. (This example is as »

The Big Bang Theory's laugh track is horrible. Let's just get that out of the way now. Not since The Drew Carey Show's inexplicable audience-of-drunken-fat-men have I been so perplexed by the vigor of Haaa!!'s and Ohhh!!'s, at the slightest ribs. Really, it almost reaches the volume levels of Disney Channel sitcoms, so eerily and psychotically exuberant it instantly recalls that urban fact that canned laughter is from people who have been dead for decades. The rare and claustrophobic experience of being trapped watching a story with maniacal ghosts, however, does subside slightly after watching enough episodes, and The Big Bang Theory will eventually make you laugh on your own. This is because of little else though than aspiring Nobel Prize winner and aspiring Vulcan, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, played with no fear by Jim Parsons, the show’s major contribution to pop culture.

Chicago – CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” had a good first season but, like a lot of sitcoms, it became much more confident in season two and really developed a rhythm that I expect will carry it for years to come. Don’t believe me? Check out the nearly-perfect and Emmy-nominated second season of “The Big Bang Theory,” now available on DVD.
DVD Rating: 3.0/5.0 The first season of “The Big Bang Theory” set up the concept - two dorky guys, their two even dorkier friends, and the pretty girl who lives across the hall. The set-up was funny, the cast was good, but it was sometimes predictable and stale.
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Second Season was released on DVD on September 15th, 2009.

The brilliance of the second season was that it took the pretty girl across the hall and made her one of the guys. »

The Big Bang Theory is back with, you got it, a bang. The comedy, which follows the interactions between four nerds (Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar) and a hot girl (Kaley Cuoco), just kicked off its 3rd season on CBS, and things are about to get crazy. Leonard (Galecki), one of the nerds, and Penny (Cuoco), the hot girl, realize they're genuinely into each other and they, well, they do the deed. And doing the deed -- which actually is more bust than bang -- will have huge repercussions on everyone. PopStar recently caught up with Galecki for the following exclusive interview, in which he talked about the questions fans most often ask him, why he likes Leonard, and what else -- beyond that big bang -- fans can expect during season three of The Big Bang Theory. You've been at Comic-Con a couple of times now »

Its pretty rare these days that I watch a TV show for the first time and instantly like it. Usually, a show takes time to grow on me or, in many cases, doesn’t and I end up moving on to something else. Like most people, my time is valuable and I only have so much, so I want to spend time where it counts watching shows of quality. Much to my happiness, The Big Bang Theory is a show I instantly liked and have been a devoted watcher of from day one.
The setup may seem rather familiar to anyone who’s watched a sitcom in the last twenty years. Sheldon and Leonard (Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons) two nerdy, comic book loving physicists live together in an apartment while they work at a nearby university. Their perfect world of video games, trips to the comic book store and »

I'm not the only one who thinks Jim Parsons will take home a fancy gold statue on Sunday. At Thursday's Entertainment Weekly pre-Emmy party, Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco also predicted that her on-screen foil would triumph in the lead actor comedy race. Even better, she followed that prediction with some Leonard-Penny-Sheldon scoop! To see who else I ran into at last night's bash (hint: Katee Sackhoff, Carlton Cuse, and more) head over to our Emmy hub Asap. »
